I downloaded and installed ver 1.05 on SMF ver 2.02 with TP.  Everything went well and buttons work great, but it only shows types INTERAL & EXTERNAL - no DROP DOWN.  Tried it on default theme and a couple of others with the same result.

???   dropdown?   I assume the dropdown menu is created automatically when you create a menu item with child menu items.

I installed this mod the other day, and if you select internal, the dropdown box below it allows you to select which forum page you want the button to link to.  Or do you mean there is no dropdown box showing to select from?

Ron Austin

Looking at the info on the mod closer, I see that the [drop down list] is made up of internal links.  When I first looked at the mod I thought you could make a drop down list of external links like:

ABOUT US
   Officers - with external link tohtml file containing  list of club officers and photos
   Mission - with external link to html file containing Mission Statement
   Location - with external link to html file containing location of club

Perhaps this can be done with child menus, but I am new at this and don't have a clue how to do that.

Ah, ok, it sounds like you need to make a button for your About Us, type external, linking either to a page or to #  if you don't want that button to link to anything, just show the dropdown (as I learned somewhere on here the other day - Old Fossil I think, so thanks for that), then when you've created that button , click on the pencil to edit it and there's now a link below saying "Add Child Button".  You would then add your Officers, Mission, Location buttons one by one there, each as external and linking each to its own URL.  Does that help any?

Ron Austin

Well glad it wasn't a snake.   :D  Don't know how I missed that.

Well this is a great mod.  Just what I needed.  Thanks a lot.

Heehee, you're welcome  ;)

Exactly :) When you modify a button you can then add children, and like children, do the same for grandchildren (third level items).

Thanks for helping out, great job, for sure.

Not a problem, I'm hoping to eventually release the pro-version which kicks this ones butt, no comparison.

Chalky

Thanks Labradoodle - I'm looking forward to the Pro version as I really like it.  When I installed this mod, it lost all the menu buttons that previous mods had added, including the arcade.  So I had some practice adding them all back manually within the mod, using as the URL ?action=arcade etc. so hopefully the pro version will address that ;)

Matthew K.

The pro version will contain an "Original Menu" section which will allow you to clone a menu item over to the main menu from the original menu.

You can completely restore the original menu, which is directly populated from Subs.php (&hooks) or just clone an single item at a time. When you click "clone" it throws up the add button page with the pre-defined variables from the button filled out already, so you just have to click add, or you can modify it to your needs before actually having it added to the main menu.

When will it give the pro version?

Not sure. Hopefully by the end of the summer, I'd hope. I am developing a chat software with my friend, and I'd like to finish Like / Dislike Posts before I finish Menu Editor Pro.

This sounds like a good mod but I need to make pages. Can you point to where I can do this. Thanks.

Matthew K.

This is Menu Editor...not "Page Editor" ;)

Try a portal, there's some good stuff around (SimplePortal, TinyPortal, ezPortal, ...) :)

Hi.
After installing this great modification there are no more notifies about new PM like this: "My messages (1) - this number has disappeared. Is there a way to fix it?
Thank you.

Matthew K.

It's not a problem, so it's not something that needs fixing, that's how it was designed. And no, I don't intend on offering a workaround for it in Menu Editor Lite. There will be a Pro option to cover that.

Well it is a problem for me and I have to remove this modification. I don't understand this logic that disabling of new PM notification is normal.

Matthew K.

You could do something like...if this button's action is pm, then add the users unread message count to the buttons title :P
