  • Fly Out Categories

    Hi All,

    Has anyone successfully been able to implement fly out categories on their store? Is it pretty easy and straightforward to implement? Can anyone give me a nudge in the right directly to start this?

    Thanks!

    Josh

    I looked into this... and it is not simple. The way 3dcart seems to display the category and subcategories means that you cant just change the template layout.

    However, if you have settled on which categories and subcategories you are going to have, and don't anticipate that changing much, you can hand code the fly-out menus and have the links point to your static links of the category you want it to point to.

    The problem with this method is if you ad a new category, you will have to go into the code and update it to show up. You will essentially be bypassing their system.

      Thanks for the reply. That does sound a bit frustrating and maddening; especially since we're always adding and changing cats. Do you think this would still be the case if we had 3DC do this for us (http://www.3dcart.com/ecommerce-dropdown-menus.html)

      Thanks,

      Josh
