Editing Menu

I have converted the PowerStore2 package to use the Gadgets theme but would like to get the menu system working.

The menu on the original template has a drop down menu, but after converting it the dropdowns don't work. Furthermore there are bullet points above each item once converted.

I have tried entering into the CSSMenu wizard, however I keep getting an error message regarding the recordset that has been created. The wizard can not detect it as it is in the include file.

What can I do to resolve this?

Ilm having the same problem with Power Store 3

Can't update the menu using CSS Menu Writer as it says that it has no connection to the database, despite it being connected.

The menu is now in Gadget which is a CSS Template supplied by WA, but I have bullet point above each option.

How can I resolve this please?

The menu.css that your menu needs seems to be missing. It should be in CSSMenuWriter/cssmw_home/menu.css alongside the menu.js file which is there. The bullet points (list) are showing because of this. You could add static links to your menu.php file, following the hierarchy of the existing links. Take care not to interfere with the dynamic links.

Hi Nelio

Thanks for your reply

This is harder than I thought it was going to be to add a WA CSS Template to a WA Product....

If you have a look here...

I do have some CSS Styling going on....

The biggest problem with trying to merge these too templates is that the CSS doesn't seem to be structured the same in each version... anyway, what am I missing to get rid of these bullet points?

Hi Daryl,

It's difficult to say. There is still no reference on that page to the menu.css that that should be there (apart from the menu_ie.css).

The css for your new template is going to be quite a bit different from the css specially compiled for the store, and I think that as you get deeper into it, your problems are only going to get bigger.

But if you wanted to just change the basics of the menu (colour, font) then it might be safer to create a menu on a clean page, get it to look the way you want, and then copy just the stylesheet to your server (CSSMenuWriter/cssmw_home/menu.css ).

Bear in mind though that the styles were written to accommodate the structure (in a 1020px wrapper) as well as the look, so expect a few challenges later on!

Hmmm.... OK

What is the best way to "skin" Power Store?

Hi Daryl,

I didn't mean to dissuade you from doing the swap-over, just warning of the amount of modifications you will have to make - especially when it comes to the product and check-out pages.

If it were me (but it's not) - I would accept the basic structure of the PowerStore template, and change just the colours, images and background images, and then work on the individual page elements one-by-one, testing at each stage.

If I wanted to completely change the structure to a narrower template , I think I would make sure that I could modify the existing product results, detail and checkout pages (and their repeat regions) and category menu in the original first (checking at each stage) and then copying those modifications over to the other template bit by bit.

But that's only because I would worry that my modifications might interfere with the dynamic functionality of the pages, and I don't know enough php to easily put things right if I mess up.

So I suppose I was only projecting my own worries about that - I haven't tried a straight template-swap so haven't thought that far ahead. It might not be quite as problematic as I imagine. Maybe others have tried it and may want to chip in.
