OctoberCMS SimpleMenu Plugin

It is strongly recommended to not use this plugin but switch to Rainlab.Pages for a better user experience and support

Generates a simple Menu based on the existing pages. This allows you to generate your website's navigation in just a few minutes. You can see it in action in my video screencast: https://vimeo.com/96068398

Development

This plugin is in the early stage of development. So if you encounter any bugs or need some features to be added, just let me know here or directly on Github.

The SimpleMenu settings tab.

After the installation process, you will find a new component in your CMS area. It can be added to any page or layout, the integration works via the following code:

{% component 'alias' %}

You will likely want to add it to your main layout file. Once this is done, you will have to set a few options:

  • Menu class: The class attribute for the main menu (ul).
  • Submenu class: The class attribute for the sub menu (ul).
  • Item class: The class attribute for the menu items (li).
  • Active class: The class attribute for the active item.

There will be some sensible default values to provide a drop-in replacement for the existing demo theme navigation. I also cover this replacement in my video screencast: https://vimeo.com/96068398

On top of that, you will find a new settings tab in the Page editor called "SimpleMenu". This tab will give you the following options:

  • Show in SimpleMenu: Decide, weather to show the page in the navigation or not.
  • Displayed text: The text for the navigation item
  • Order: The higher the value the later it will appear in the navigation. (Also supports negative values)
