The template is accompanied by a series of menu systems which are outlined below:
Please click the links in the list below to load the various menu types.
The menu type used is set via template configuration at Extensions → Template Manager → rt_quantive_j15 → Menu Control. Select your desired menu type from the dropdown and save. Also, the various Mootools effects of Fusion Menu can also be configured in the template manager.
Fusion offers a series of new abilities ranging from Menu Icons, Subtext support and much greater controls over the Multiple Column ability for dropdowns.
You can configure Fusion Menu at Extensions → Template Manager → rt_quantive_j15 and you will find all parameters under the Menu heading.
Fusion has support for individual menu icons for its dropdown menu items. These images are loaded from the /templates/rt_quantive_j15/images/icons/ directory where you will find 21 images by default.
To setup a Menu Icon, go to Menu → Mainmenu → Select/Create a Menu Item. Locate the Menu Image field in Parameters (Template theme - gantry-fusion) and select an image from the dropdown.
Subtext is the term used to describe the secondary text placed underneath the menu title.
To add your own Subtext, go to Menu → Mainmenu → Select/Create a Menu Item. Locate the Subtext field in Parameters (Template theme - gantry-fusion) and insert your desired text. Also add your Subtext to the Parameters (Template theme - gantry-suckerfish) field so it appears in IE6.
Fusion has the facility for dynamic column control for its dropdown. You can choose between single (1) or double (2) column modes for children of every single menu item via configuration.
To control the number of columns of each menu item, go to Menu → Mainmenu → Select/Create a Menu Item. Locate the Columns of Children field in Parameters (Template theme - gantry-fusion) and choose either 1 or 2.
Typically, a dropdown menu column will extend beyond the width of the browser window if you have enough child levels. However, with Fusion, the menu detects the width of the browser and will change the direction of menu pullouts so all menu items are visible without the need to scroll.
A static menu system that displays submenu items outside of the main horizontal menu and the 2nd level items underneath it in a separate menu bar. Then, the 3rd level menu items are displayed in the Sidebar.
You can determine which positions the 2nd level (submenu) and the 3rd level (sidemenu) menu items load in, using the Gantry administrator. Simply go to Extensions → Template Manager → rt_quantive_j15 → Menu. There are 3 options that pertain specifically to Splitmenu, these are Sub Menu Position, Sidebar Menu Position and Sidebar Class Sfx. The former two options control which position the 2nd and 3rd+ level menu items appear in. The latter option decides which module class suffix is used for Splitmenu.
If you wish to remove or edit the Menu text that appears in the module title of the Splitmenu side menu, you will need to edit the /templates/rt_quantive_j15/html/modules.php file. Find and edit the following:
<div class="module-title"><h2 class="title"><?php echo $menu_title_item->name.' '.JText::_('Menu'); ?></h2></div>
In order for menu dropdowns in Moomenu and Suckerfish, and the dropline / side column items of Splitmenu to appear, you need to setup parent and child menu items.
Perform the same task for all menu items that you wish to be child items.
