Menu Manager 4.1.1, definitely needs more work.

First, I want to be clear that I'm loving IPS 4.1.  My site has a much better feel all around since moving up from 4.0.  Overall, very impressive release.  I really like the selective quoting and format removal option on paste.  Very cool.  Seems smoother and faster as well.

I can't get custom links to save in the menu manager.  The save button won't work.  Activity streams and drop down menus save just fine.  I've tested in Chrome, Firefox and Safari.  Cleared cache, just in case.

I've also seen it on multiple occasions create a bunch of menu items on it's own that I then have to delete.  This screenshot is after deleting 3-4 already.

In Chrome you can't arrange the menu items.  I had to go over to Safari to do that.  Arranged fine in Safari.

So, the menu manager might as well not even be there.  What a tease.  You can only rearrange the icons or create activity streams that are already created.  Can't wait to actually be able to use that to include my own custom items.

Reload Menu Manager and move - so you become as you want

I'm having problems where top level menus are also doing drop menus of the same links. I deleted one and it deleted the entire menu. >_< But I'm living with the both for now. >_> I think it's something with the way they were before the upgrade on Pages.

 

4.1.x In some templates have changed. APP Pages is no longer menu. Now only Menu Manager.

Maybe editing theme?

My issue is it want's to create a secondary menu everytime a drop down is created.

Before

After

If drop down is selected, it shouldn't create a secondary menu. You'll notice My Activity menu (standard) is a drop down in the first image.

@MorriganChange the setting of the DF services -> Drop-down Menu -> Custom link (example: http://yoursait/forums/)

I can't. It only gives me other options which also don't work (Activity stream, page, or custom link) but it shouldn't have duplicated the sub menu items to a drop down. Here on IPB it allows the "Browse" and "Activity" sections to have it without having an actual drop down.

Now that I look at it they are all custom links which makes it still not very optimal and it shouldn't have duplicated (which I think is a bug considering). I don't think I should be required to have either. I can fix it through making them all custom links though. Question is, what to make them custom links to (the top level doesn't have a custom link) that I can immediately attach to it.

I have and I have used custom, drop downs but it's definitely not working (for me).

All options create horizontal sub menu. Only Drop-down creates a vertical direction. 4.1.x menu is very dynamic and has more game with it - to feel its effects.

As you can see, only vertical drop down, no horizontal menu, so it is possible to create just a drop down with no horizontal option.

My Activity Streams is child "Activity Stream item"

Activity Stream item option create horizontal menu.
