That still would be slightly different to what digitalpoint has. Let's hope for digitalpoint menu addon!This addon does it:
There is a "root node" option:
If you wish to breakup the menu into columns by category then you need to use CSS styling. It's all doable though.
Jake,In what way?
From what I can see it is functionally identical, minus a difference in styling which is just CSS.
You would represent that in your node structure. Put both categories under a common parent node, then make that parent node into a tab. Simple.Jake,
Would be really great if you can provide some kind of instructions on how we can use your Node as Tabs addon to create a generic menu.
For example, what I'm trying to do as a simple task is to create a Tab that has 2 children which are both node category.
Goal: Create a tab called My Tab which has Node A and Node B as children. When I hover over Node A, it will show it children (10 forums on that category). Same when I hover Node B.
Node A Node B
Child A1 Child B1
Child A2 Child B2
Child A10 Child B10
Right now, I don't know how to create a blank tab that called My Tab and assign those nodes as children.
Those categories are both under root so it doesn't sound like I can make a pseudo tab and have those 2 categories as child?You would represent that in your node structure. Put both categories under a common parent node, then make that parent node into a tab. Simple.
I don't even have a forum listing anymore. That drag and drop would be really convenient.It's a little more complicated than a "styling" question... for example permissions have to be taken into account (you don't want users to be able to see stuff they can't normally see).
And it gets *way* more complicated when you realize that the navigation thing isn't it's real purpose... it was just an accidental nice bonus. It's *true* purpose is a drop-zone for drag and drop threads (for mods/admins).
Upon additional consideration, this really requires HTML changes. I may add a configurable option for this. In the meantime I will try to come up with a template hack for you to use.
It's not a simple template hack. It needs to be part of a full update. I have it working right now. I will release an update in the next couple days.Upon additional consideration, this really requires HTML changes. I may add a configurable option for this.

Ok I posted it:Wonderful!
I didn't realize you were the author of "Nodes As Tabs". Fantastic job!
