Creating multiple menus

edited September 2011 in Share
I am having some trouble with creating multiple menus via the admin interface and then displaying these.

The pages I have are

Help/Custom Orders
About/Contact Us

All of the pages apart from About/Location are pages created through the admin interface. Admin/Location is a straight CI controller and view.

I need three menus.

1) The main menu which will have Home, Help and About in.
2) A menu to appear on all of the help pages with all of the help sub pages
3) A menu to appear on all of the about pages with all of the about sub pages

Any help would be great.

    You can create a menu either statically by creating a nav file or in the admin using the navigation module.

    If you creating a menu statically, you can add to the nav file like so:

    By default, fuel_nav will look for the variable named $nav but that can be controlled by specifying the var parameter fuel_nav(array('group_id' => 'my_group', 'var' => 'footernav')

    If you are creating the menu in the admin, you can assign each to a different group.

    Then, in your view, you can use fuel_nav(array('group_id' => 'my_group'.... )) to display the menu.

    Here is some additional information which I hope helps:

    Thanks for the reply.

    I have added a new navigation group called help. When I select navigation in the admin and then choose the help group there are currently no pages.

    Is the only way to add pages to use the upload?

    You should be able to create a navigation item and associate it with a page by clicking the "create" button above that empty list.

    Thanks for your help. I really like the idea of combining the abilities of the CI framework with a content management system. It fits a lot of my projects perfectly.

    Hi, i'm trying to use the navigation fonctionality with no success.

    That's the code I'm using in my breadcrumb

    $options = array('container_tag' => 'div',
    'container_tag_id' => 'footerNav',
    'use_titles' => true,
    'group_id' => 1, 'parent' => uri_segment(1));
    echo 'test2';
    echo fuel_nav($options);

    I'm using the navigation tools in the back office to create my diagram

    Thing like that

    But my breadcrumb only work when the url contain "repair" at first place
    I try to change group_id, remove group_id and I don't want change the core code (of course)

    So do you have any idea?

    What happens if you remove the parent option?
