Dropdown Menu Module for K2

July 12th, 2012

Dropdown Menu Module for K2This brand new module allows you to create very easy navigation through filtering of the K2 categories and items via AJAX.

Wonder how it works?

In the parameters of the module, you can select the root category. All sub-categories will be displayed in the first dropdown, once a category is selected, if it has sub-categories, new dropdown with all the sub-categories will be displayed.

If there are items in the currently selected category, a dropdown with the items will also be displayed (not all items, but depending on the limit to display, which is set in the module parameters). The module is very useful, if you want to create a very easy navigation for complex sites with cascading structure. It can be used for filtering and easy search through predefined content (categories and items).

This module allows you to display a dropdown with all categories, their images (resized to 64px width) and description.

Be aware that it will not cascade the sub-categories (i.e. all will be displayed as being on the same level).
