This forum is for comments and trouble about the CSS Dropdown Top menu extension on

To Pat - In debug mode, do you see the call to the double_top.tpl
To Sinisa - Could you send me the html output?

In pagelayout, you have to place this

  <div class="float-break">
      {menu name=TopMenu}

and take away this one

  <div id="topmenu" class="float-break">
    {include uri='design:menu/flat_top.tpl'}

The double_top.tpl is only used when logged onto the front-end and with the modification of pagelayout, the menu appear but the menu is not complete.
Also as anonymous user i still got nothing.

Have a look in the double_top.tpl template.
Each fetch has a

class_filter_array, array(1)

By default only object of class 1 are fetch (the folders). If you want all elements from the ezwebin to get fetched replace by

 class_filter_array, array(1,19,20,31)

Same logic apply also to sub folders, you can select at each level which classes are fetched.

I've just installed the extension and I was wondering if it was possible to allow more than 4 levels deep for the menu.
If yes, how to setup this ?
Thanx a lot.

In theory yes, but I believe it will be hard to navigate (so easy to get the mouse over the border of an element and the whole menu closes down)
If you want to try, you are welcome.

I had a problem with my level 3 displaying messed up in IE7 (and I have no need of level 4), so I fixed it by removing the level 4 reference in the template. IE6 and FF never had any issues at all.

Hi, I tried out this extension today and found some curious behavior, I only have 2 levels of folders currently but in IE7 the second levels height was small and mouse overs would not always show the tables. Here's the odd thing, I found that line 25:
<!--[if IE 7]><!--></a><!--<![endif]-->
was not been used by IE7, if I changed it to:
<!--[if IE]><!--></a><!--<![endif]-->
then it worked fine in IE7.

Any thoughts on why IE7 wouldn't respond to the if IE 7 conditional?

my IE version is 7.0.5730.11

Think I identified a new bug today that may effect some users.

line 151 of the css # ul, ol The margin: 0 causes numbers lists within the content to fall too far left of the content column. Removing it didn't appear to have any negative side effects in FF2 or IE7.

When I added this to my installation, I had a link in the menu that went outside of ezpublish to another part of my website, now the link is no longer there.

To be more specific, the link was created in ezpublish and is an external link. when I added this crontribution the link disappeared. But the remaining folders are still there.

If the content class is the 'link' from eZ publish standard install, then you have to add the content class number in your array (11).

array(1, 11, 16, 17, 19, 20, 23, 38, 39)

Thanks that worked great, too bad I had already added a link to the top by the login/logout buttons. Where would one find out this information for future reference?

Friday 17 August 2007 3:03:13 pm

Ok I have another question, what is the class identifier for a forum.

Friday 17 August 2007 3:15:18 pm

Have a look in at the ID attribute.
In 3.9.2 it's 59 but it can be another number in another install / version of eZ publish.

Hi, J-A Eberhard

I have installed the lastest <b>topdrop</b> extension successfully with eZ Publish 3.9.2. It works well. But I only want the menu to go forward no more than two levels. Could you please tell me how to do?


Wednesday 26 September 2007 1:52:20 pm


Have a look at the template, it's as a 4 level loop to fetch attributes.
In level 3 and 4 just leave empty the list of classes that should be fetched.

class_filter_array, array()

Hi, i try menu but how i cant set what also show first node "HOME " now it shoew only all nodes inside Home node .

Sunday 14 October 2007 7:52:40 pm

This is normal behavior of any menu, to see what's inside the main node.
If you was displaying this node, you will have only one entry in the menu toolbar, the main node, with all other nodes below it.
I think it will not help to navigate your site.

Thanks for a very nice extension

I need help with how to make top menu show what area/section that is active/selected. Just like her on where developer is marked/selected if developer and any subarea/section is chosen

Best regards
