Navigation Tabs

Is there anyway for the root navigation buttons not to have a link to a URL I have several that I just want others to drop out of and the Root level not to be a button

Re: Navigation Tabs

Hi Ed,

Yes, there is a way to do it. We have documentation on it here: http://www.mojoportal.com/unclickable-menu-items.aspx.

HTH,

Re: Navigation Tabs

Hello Joe,

 

Im trying to add different states in my menu bar tabs. i have managed to make the mouse over states work with my css. I'm trying to add active states to the tabs to remain in active mode while the user is on that specific page.

 

Thank you in advanced.

Re: Navigation Tabs

Hi,

The various menu types included with mojoPortal have this capability built-in. The standard menus use the "AspNet-Menu-SelectedLeaf" class and the SuperFish menu uses the "current" class. Both types of menus place the class on the LI and A elements of the menu.

HTH,
Joe D.

Re: Navigation Tabs

When creating mojoPortal skins, I've found that the simplest thing to do is take an existing skin that has a layout you find attractive, then modify the heck out of it (colors, menu tabs, graphics, etc.) until it looks exactly the way you want. If you are trying to adapt something like a template from another type of CMS, you can again refer to delivered mojoPortal skins to find the CSS selectors to include and modify. I highly recommend the Firebug browser extension to inspect elements on the page. The css files you are looking for would probably be either stylemenu.css (for "legacy" type skins), or style.css for Artisteer skins.

Remember to set the following keys to false in your user.config, so that when you update css it is immediately reflected, and when you inspect the elements with Firebug you can see exactly which .css files need to be changed. Change these back to true when your skin work is complete.

   <add key="CombineCSS" value="false" />
   <add key="MinifyCSS" value="false" />
   <add key="CacheCssOnServer" value="false"/>
   <add key="CacheCssInBrowser" value="false"/>

Of course, if all else fails, you could invest in a copy of Artisteer to make the skinning a breeze (see the link in my profile to the left). I can personally vouch for this program. It has saved us a TON of work.
