View submenu conditionally

I put together a combined horizontal and vertical navigation, the vertical (sub) menu will be displayed only when actually sub-menu items are available (this is for example the case on the product pages, but not at home).

You can not automate everything within a CMS!

Some menu solution can be implemented only by custom logic.

But it's important - if possible do NOT use inline PHP. In your case it goes as follows:

In the template, add to the area where the vertical menu is to appear

[Note: All the “numbers” are levels of structure IDs]

Create a new file navi_left_right.php in template/inc_script/frontend_render/.. and fill in the following code:



// ----------------------------------------------------------------
// obligate check for phpwcms constants
if (!defined('PHPWCMS_ROOT')) {
   die("You Cannot Access This Script Directly, Have a Nice Day."); }
// ----------------------------------------------------------------
// Simple "View submenu conditionally"

$_vertmenu = '';
if(isset($LEVEL_ID[1])) {
  $_vertmenu = trim(   buildCascadingMenu( 'F,' . $LEVEL_ID[1] . ',' )   );
  // this is exactly the same as {NAV_LIST_UL: F,start_level_id, }
  // but built with php function behind
  if( $_vertmenu ) {
    $_vertmenu = '<div class="menu">' . $_vertmenu . '</div>';
  } else {
    $_vertmenu = '';
$content['all'] = str_replace( '{VERTMENU}', $_vertmenu, $content['all'] );

Use {VERTMENU} on the site in the template where you want to appear the result….
