TOPIC: How does the menu work? What about multi-language?

How does the menu work? What about multi-language? 25 Jul 2012 19:34 #739

Hi,

I had installed just the template on an existing site (J2.5) and then tried to configure the menu. I couldn't understand from where the template gets what will be the main menu of the site. Because the current website was built on a Joomlart template I thought that there might be some conficts.
So, then I installed the quickstart to see how things are built up... but I still can't find the answer because I can't find a menu module assigned to the mainmenu position.
What is the mechanism behind the main menu in the template ?
What about creating a multilingual site in Joomla 2.5 with this template ? What menus will be used ?
Looking forward to your replies.
John

Hi
Menu is got from template code, we use mainmenu for it. If you want to change mainmenu to another menu, you can go to line 15 - 16 of templates/jf_well-benessere/index.php :
include_once (dirname(__FILE__).DS.'/scripts/php/mainmenu.php');
$menuname = 'mainmenu';

If I remember well, when I had to create multilingual site with this template, I had to bypass templates menu system and use other menus for that.

Hi, do you have a suggestion for a multilingual menu suitable for such theme ? Please specify it somewhere because your theme is nice but such menu limitation problem is "not small". Tks

It is not my theme... I am just a user... who had this same difficulty to work with this template.
I disabled the templates menu system and just created my language menus with the core joomla main menu module. Then I had to make some CSS adjustments.
