Accordian View Vertical Menu

I need to create a vertical menu with vertical sub-menus -- not unlike an accordian. That said I don't need the animation of a Spry-based accordian, just the presentation.

The sub-menu needs to be positioned below it's parent, and above the other level 1 items, not flyout to the right. They would be visible only on pages that are related to the parent menu item. I have the main menu created -- it will be placed on the section landing pages, and then when one of the items is selected a page from that group will be displayed showing the main menu and the sub-menu for that group.

Can I accomplish this with CSSMW??

No. This is not a supported menu type in CSSMW. All of the vertical menus fly out to the right.

Can I "embed" a separate vertical menu in the main menu??

I've never tried... I don't think that would work, but you could see what happens.

Ray -- it doesn't work.

I can "split" the main menu, placing the sub-menu after it, and the remainder of the main menu after that. Creates the look and functionality I need -- but it is a kludge!!

Any chance of adding a feature request for this functionality in the future??

Thanks

We considered it in the last update but it was dropped in favor of other features partially because spry offered a menu that worked and was part of the native Dreamweaver functionality. It is possible that we could add it in a future version.

use the spry accordion as a navigation.

main link as headline and inside the sub links.

all you need to do is style the css :-)

there must be a tutorial in the web, i saw it month ago :-)

I thought about that -- since I am using CSS Menu for the rest of the site navigation I don't want to mix my metaphors!!

With the re-entry available in CSS Menu making additions or other adjustments is easier than editing each page that changes. I suppose I could make the navs a library item, but I want to stay with one horse. . .

Thanks, though. . .
