In Zephyr, Fusion Menu has been extended with the following features:
Below is a list of the standard, recurring features of the Fusion Menu:
All Menu Items can be edited from Admin → Menu → Menu Name → Menu Item.
Subtext Line is the option that allows you to insert additional text to the Menu Item Title. There is separate styling for this, making it useful for adding brief descriptions to menu items.
Adding Menu Icons
Menu Image is the option that allows you to insert an inline icon / image to the Menu Item.
Columns of Child Items allows you to determine how many columns the Fusion dropdowns are presented in. You can have anywhere between a single dropdown to a four column dropdown.
Item Distribution allows you to control how the menu items are ordered in the dropdowns:
Drop-Down Width (px)
Drop-Down Width (px) determines the total width of the dropdown, regardless of how many columns are shown. This option is to be used in conjunction with Column Widths (px)
Column Widths (px)
Column Widths (px) determines the width of each Column. Separate each width by a comma. The final column's width is determined automatically. This option is to be used in conjunction with Drop-Down Width (px)
Below are some example configurations:
What is Grouping?
Group Child Items changes the behaviour of child items in the dropdown menus, instead of creating a dropdown for the immediate sublevel, this option places them inline. See below for an illustrated example of the differences:
Set Group Child Items to Yes to activate the mode. The sublevels well then appear below the parent menu item in a categorical type structure.
Below is a diagram of how the menu groupings in Joomla translate into the Fusion Menu:
Fusion is now capable of loading individual modules or entire module positions inside its dropdowns.
Loading Individual Modules
Set Child Item Type to Modules to load all modules setup on your Joomla site in a list. Select the module you wish to display in the dropdown.
Loading Module Positions
Set Child Item Type to Modules Positions to load all module positions on your Joomla site in a list. Select the position you wish to display in the dropdown.
Below is an example of multiple modules appearing in a dropdown:
Go to Extensions → Template Manager → rt_zephyr_j15 → Menu Set Menu Control to Type : Fusion-Menu, to load all the Fusion parameters.
