New to XOOPS but really like it. I'm trying to setup an XOOPS site to duplicate my static site. I would like to eliminate some of the redundant menu items in my left menu area. The site is at: http://www.consultyou.net/cms/htdocs/modules/AMS/

I would like to eliminate the following items under General Menu from appearing:

Articles and Archieve

Also is there a way to get the following menu items to show up in the menu section called Departments:

Audio Video
Contact Us

I'm trying to get a simple list of navigationl menu items all listed in one section.

Thanks in advance (I'm sure this sounds confusing)

Three simple rules you need to know about menus:

Your best bet to control any menu in XOOPS is editing its template. Templates are grouped by module, so Main menu template belongs to "System - blocks" and the other one belongs to "AMS - blocks".

Main menu is controlled by a template in system module. The AMS menu is another template in AMS module.

To supress the "home" button just delete the home tag in main menu template.

To add stuff in Departments menu, just add it at the end of the template. Ability to read and write HTML will be useful at this point.

Submenus are defined in xoops_version.php - Every module has it's own xoops_version.php file, locate AMS's, and look for this:


This is part of the PHP code that defines the submenus.

You might also like to look at the Multimenu module by Solo. It lets you create dynamic menus however you like (you could make one to replace your main menu).
