Menu assignment / Display Joomla

Menu assignment / Display Joomla

Stephen,

I am new to Metamod... MetaTemplate 1.12 Pro -- Joomla 1.5.22.

I am having trouble getting a menu item to display on my second template (user3 position). I have created a joomla module and assigned it to the new menu and set the menu selections within the module to none.

Is there a Metamod Rule I need to add to be able to display the menu item in the second template only (a menu that is different than the primary template and not the main menu or user menu?)

Thanks,

Re: Menu assignment / Display Joomla

Hi ljfent,

have you seen the recipe on this page?

http://www.metamodpro.com/metamod/recip … a-template

I think that in your case you could do this (you have done some already):

1 - create new menu structure with the appropriate items on it
2 - create a module to show that menu
3 - in that module, set "menu items" to none so it doesn't just show up on all pages
4 - create a MetaMod in the user3 position
5 - in that MetaMod, use a recipe from the page link above
6 - the MetaMod will be assigned to ALL pages, but will only display the menu inside it when it's on the 2nd template.

As I described it, this only adds the extra menu on pages with the 2nd template. It doesn't remove any of the existing menus. If you need to do that as well, then write back and we can look at how to do that.

Cheers,
Stephen
