Adding addiontional menus

Adding addiontional menus

I have just bought chameleon and added a joomla template to different VM categories, and this seems to be working fine. 

I would also like to add a specific menu to this as well.  I have created a new menu called "Layer 1" (Menu ID:5), and I have also created a new mod_mainmenu called "layer 1" (Module ID:58) and for now placed it in "banner 1" position.

I have tried a couple of options and searched this forum but I can not find a away of adding this menu to these categories.

It is properly something simple I am missing, but any help gratefully received.

Thank you
Glenn

Re: Adding addiontional menus

Hi Glenn,

at this time, Chameleon does not act directly on modules or module positions. i.e. it can't hide/show them.

My other product MetaMod is all about dealing with this sort of thing though - try downloading the free version and trying it out.

You'll need to read and understand the Quick Start guide:

http://www.metamodpro.com/metamod/quick-start

Since you'll need to write a little PHP, you'll also find this "recipes" page useful:

http://www.metamodpro.com/metamod/recip … mart-pages

The recipe in there called "Display a certain module only on browse pages, with a different module for each category" is basically what you'll be wanting.

Hope that helps - please write back if you need more specific help.

Cheers,
Stephen
