I honestly cannot imagine what is happening for those of you with troubles on the public side - every one I've looked at so far has all the indications of the hook not running at all (you can tell by checking the javascript includes on your forum - if our hook is working, then you should see a script named something like fusionmenu.js loaded)

I'll keep looking into it and let you all know once I've discovered the root of this issue. This is, however, difficult as none of our test systems exhibit any of this behaviour (see http://community.fusiondigital.co.nz/, http://test.community.fusiondigital.co.nz, and http://dev.community.fusiondigital.co.nz/)

Well, I've located the problem - it's an IPB bug that I'll have to report to IPS. Basically, the way they do skin overloaders, only the last overloader initialised ever gets the opportunity to run. The opposite of action overloaders, where only the first overloader gets to run.

DarkGizmo: that can only happen if a menu somehow became a menu item of a root that doesn't exist. I'll release a fix later today that will include a "rebuild" tool to reparent these to a menu of your choice.

Do you have a working example?



Your website mentions sub-menus - any examples of this working?





I cannot get mine to work well with sub-menus, so if yours could display sub-menus and control over who see's what, I would certainly buy.



Also can yours be positioned anywhere on the page? For example I have mine below the _top whereas on here it is above.



Thanks.





Any info ;)


I still cannot find any example of sub-menus as specified on your site. Menu's like here, yes, but not sub-menus.

You are using the same .js code that IPS use here, so can only assume you would be achieving this via css.

Also where is this positioned - can it be anywhere? I would want mine beneath the _top link as when someone clicks on 'top' they go to below the menu (which makes it invisible to them)

As mentioned when I manually use the same code as you are using, I can have a menu just for guests, and have other menus for other groups, and indeed menu items for groups as well - is this possible with your mod.

Or am I better sticking with using the code from here using a separate template bit? I would rather have it automated from the CP, hence the questions.

For the moment, you are better off doing it manually. Our marketing folks apparently didn't get what I meant about menus and took menu items to mean submens. I'll work on actual submenus though. Ditto for groups, I can see how that'll be useful.

Until I get a tool written for it, the easiest way is with SQL Toolbox. Just open the fusion_menus table, and check that any item with a parent_id references an id that actually is in the table. If there is one that isn't, either update the record to use a parent_id that is in the table, or delete it.

:huh: huh? :P

Let me go check and see if I can figure out what you mean :P

This is what I see under the table:


id title description url icon parent_id displayorder visible


1 Home Homepage http://revillution.com


0 1 1 2 Reviews Reviews http://revillution.com/reviews/index.php


2 2 1 3 Staff Staff http://revillution.com/staff.php


0 2 1



It's the Reviews one that won't show up at all or I can't delete...
Thanks for any help.

Whenever I edit a root menu it adds a parent_id. This will cause the menu item to not show.
I just go in and remove the (1 in this case) from the parent_id field using phpMyAdmin's edit function.
Save it and you are back to normal.
