For one catalog I copied the generated HTML of the vertical menu (by
viewing the source of the generated home page) so that I could quickly
customise the menu and links.

After editing the HTML with a text editor I saved the file to
something like templates/components/product_menu_static and then used
this component where I wanted the custom menu to appear.


ui_name: product_menu_static
ui_type: component
ui_class: vertical
ui_group: Navigation
ui_label: Products Menu Static

<!-- BEGIN COMPONENT [control component product_menu_static] -->

PASTE generated HTML here and manually customise links and flyouts as needed

<!-- END COMPONENT [control component product_menu_static] -->

To load this static HTML version on a test page edit the component bit:


Or if you wanted to use the static HTML version on all pages save the
component as product_tree

If you need fancier fly outs, more levels etc instead you could search
the net for a suitable bootstrap flyout menu, customise and paste that
in instead i.e. something like:

This is not an elegant solution but could be a quick way of getting to
what you need.

Tying it into the IC menu editor would be cool but would take a little
longer perhaps something to look at down the track.
