Automatic Dropdown Menu System

[dropdown]

Create standard and custom Dropdown Menus automatically

This extension uses MenuMatic.js to create javascript based Horizontal and Vertical Dropdown menus - that fall back to css-only if javascript is disabled in the clients browser.

Use this extension to generate a Standard navigation menu as per Contaos navigation module, or a custom Selectable navigation menu across multiple site roots as per the Selectnav module.

Then configure the orientation, postioning, spacing, sizes, alignments, physics, duration, delay, direction, rounded corners, submenu buttons etc of your menu.

Positioning styles are added to document head (view page source to see).

Style additional appearance (colors, fonts, borders, background images) etc with appropriate stylesheet added to Page Layout if necessary.

You can choose to display your menu unstyled and without automatic dropdown by switching templates to "drop_down_none".

Install. Create new Module - displays as Dropdown in the navigation section.  Configure Module. Add Module to Page Layout.

There are proportionate 30 x larger tif and gif button images to use as templates in the html/orig_img folder, if you wish to design your own submenu buttons. "Use Module Buttons" draws from the html/img folder. "Use Own Buttons" draws from the folder you select.
