In 'Blocks Administration' I have added a new block in the 'Add a new block' at the bottom of that page. How do I move module links from the main menu block into the new menu block.

using XOOPS 2.0.15

copy the contents of your main menu by editing it and paste it into your new block.

I need to add new blocks for organising my site links and modules as having all the links in the 'Main Menu' is just too long a list of links.

I have tried to create a new block in 'Blocks Administration' and the only code I could get to work was for one of the new blocks

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
<table cellspacing="0" cellpadding="0" width="100%" border="0">
<tr align="center">
<td id="usermenu"><a class="menuMain" href="../classifieds/">Pet Classifieds</a></td>
</tr>
</table>
<table cellspacing="0" cellpadding="0" width="100%" border="0">
<tr align="center">
<td id="usermenu"><a class="menuMain" href="../store/">Dog Books</a></td>
</tr>
</table>
<table cellspacing="0" cellpadding="0" width="100%" border="0">
<tr align="center">
<td id="usermenu"><a class="menuMain" href="../store2/">Cat Books</a></td>
</tr>
</table>
<table cellspacing="0" cellpadding="0" width="100%" border="0">
<tr align="center">
<td id="usermenu"><a class="menuMain"href="../store3/">Horse Books</a></td>
</tr>
</table>
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

But the problem is that none of the links will show on the 'Sitemap' and none of the modules will show in the 'Site Search' also none of the dropdown features will show on the modules.

I have been tearing my hair out for a solid 24 hours on this and I need to know the correct way to code this.

Re: Blocks Question

Have you looked into any of the menu expansion modules available. Sorry, having a brain fart as to names of some... but basically there is a multi-menu module that allows you to build up to 8 I believe menus and put them anywhere as blocks. That may help you to break it up some. The other thing you could do is build a center center block, and just build html links like we used to do in the old days ([link], [link1], [link2], etc.). That would give you one heckuva lot of link space. But I gotta ask... maybe a section module if it's all content may be more appropriate yes? Are all of your menu links to Modules or content?

Hi Gents

Well I did go the 'multimenu' root in the end. I had tried a version of multimenu which I had downloaded some time ago, but never got it to work properly, probably my haste and frustration at the time, Anyway searched around and I think I now have the latest version which is 'multimenu_1.9-rc1'.

This version allows up to 20 menus and works like a dream, so after the previous 'hair tearing experience' I am now replanting each hair individually and luckily they are taking root again.

With so many modules in use on my site, many of which are custom hacked for multiple purposes, the 'main menu' was getting too long and unorganised. At least now it is a lot more user friendly. Now I can start getting the rest of the extra site features I have in mind placed in orderly groups of links.
