Vertical Category Navigation with subcategories, fine css classes and backend configuration.

Compatible with Magento 1.x

Vertical Navigation with CSS Classes

With this extension you're able to design you own vertical category navigation with subcategories and product count display. Each element has a fine css'ing so you can address each element or group exactly including "first" and "last" element per group and "previos", "active" and "next" child.

By default the module removes the top.navigation via XML-Update and places the vertical nav in "left" structural block.

Several options can be controlled in your AdminPanel under system -> configuration -> catalog as per StoreView:

  • Hide Vertical Navigation (yes/no)
  • Hide Top Navigation (yes/no)
  • Display Product Count (yes/no)
  • Expand on Top Level (yes/no)
  • Expand all categories (yes/no
  • Expand all max depth (number)
  • Root Categories (Store base, current Category, Same Level as current Category, Category Level 2, Category Level 3)
  • Fallback to store base (yes/no)

You should modify the vertnav.css-file in your skin folder to fit your needs. (Please note: do not change the base/default skin file! The delivered CSS file is for showcase purposes only!)
