I had a requirement to add a multi-level responsive drop down menu in a Zyxware theme. Please do refer the below reference links to know more about responsive themes and free Drupal themes. So for that I had to edit page.tpl.php, page--front.tpl.php, style.css, template.php etc.

First I added the following code to template.php of my theme. The steps that I followed here are,

  • Added the following code to the function themename__preprocess_page(&$vars) to make the menu as a tree.

    
        //Setting menu in a tree structure
        $main_menu_tree = menu_tree(variable_get('menu_main_links_source', 'main-menu'));
        $vars['main_menu'] =  $main_menu_tree;
        // Get the entire main menu tree
        $main_menu_tree = menu_tree_all_data('main-menu');
        // Add the rendered output to the $main_menu_expanded variable
        $vars['main_menu_expanded'] = menu_tree_output($main_menu_tree);
      
    
  • Added css class to main menu using the function,
    
      function themename_menu_tree__main_menu(&$vars) {        
      return '<ul class="nav navbar-nav">' . $vars['tree'] . '</ul>';
     }
     
    
  • Added css class to inner part of main menu using the function,
    
    function themename_menu_tree__main_menu_inner($vars) {	
        return '<ul class="dropdown-menu">' . $vars['tree'] . '</ul>';
    }
    
    
  • Added the following function to display the links in main menu tree,
    
      function themename_menu_link__main_menu($vars) {
       $element = $vars['element'];
       $sub_menu = '';
    
       if ($element['#below']) {
        foreach ($element['#below'] as $key => $val) {
          if (is_numeric($key)) {             
            $element['#below'][$key]['#theme'] = 'menu_link__main_menu_inner'; // 2 level <li>
          }
        }
        $element['#below']['#theme_wrappers'][0] = 'menu_tree__main_menu_inner';  // 2 level <ul>
        $sub_menu = drupal_render($element['#below']);
      }
      $output = l($element['#title'], $element['#href'], $element['#localized_options']);
    
      $element['#localized_options']['attributes']['class'][] = " dropdown-toggle ";
      $element['#localized_options']['attributes']['role'][] = "menu";
      $element['#localized_options']['attributes']['data-toggle'][] = "dropdown";
      $element['#localized_options']['attributes']['aria-expanded'][] = "true";  
      
      $output = l($element['#title'], $element['#href'], $element['#localized_options']);
      return '<li class="dropdown">' . $output . $sub_menu . '</li>';
     }
     
    
  • Added the following code to make inner <li> tag - links
    
        function themename_menu_link__main_menu_inner($vars) {
          $element = $vars['element'];
          $sub_menu = '';
    
          if ($element['#below']) {
            $sub_menu = drupal_render($element['#below']);
          }
    
          $output = l($element['#title'], $element['#href'], $element['#localized_options']);
    
          return '<li' . drupal_attributes($element['#attributes']) . '>' . $output . $sub_menu . '</li>\n';
         }
    
    

Then I added the code ' print render($main_menu); ' to the page.tpl and page--front.tpl for display menu with necessary <div> tag and css styles based on the theme that were downloaded from http://getbootstrap.com/components

We have added a few new modules to our site recently. Drupal Technical StumbleThis Sean (not verified) access_time 31 Jul 2021 - 18:24 Hi there, I uploaded the files, enabled the modules to use SU, and now I see the link, but there is no icon... How can I fix this? Thanks, Sean webmaster access_time 31 Jul 2021 - 18:24 In reply to Icon doesn&#039;t show by Sean (not verified) What do you see when you view the source? Search for stumblethis_button and you should be able to see the code for the image and the URL. Then you should be able to troubleshoot from there. Juicy Couture Addict (not verified) access_time 31 Jul 2021 - 18:24 thanks for the post. would love to hear more of you. by the way, drupal's really popular nowadays as it has easy and fast features. you agree with me? thanks.

Most webmasters do not realize this, but a lot of the content on lot of websites can be accessed from multiple URLs. A simple example would be where www.example.com and example.com leads to the same page. This is a fatal mistake in Search Engine Optimization and search engines penalize you for duplicate content. The correct configuration would be where the above two urls will lead you to the same page but example.com will redirect you to www.example.com with a 301 (Moved permanently) status which will not result in search engines penalizing the page. It is very easy to configure 301 redirects using Apache .htaccess file and the process is the same for a Drupal installation also. Drupal Technical Apache htaccess SEO Anonymous (not verified) access_time 31 Jul 2021 - 18:24 Hello. I'm trying to make example.com show as www.example.com, and I'm running into difficulties. I'm on Apache 2.0 and using the following lines in my httpd.conf file: RewriteEngine on RewriteCond %{HTTP_HOST} ^xxxxxxxxxx\.com$ [NC] RewriteRule ^(.*)$ http://www.xxxxxxxxxx.com/$1 [L,R=301] When I go to http://xxxxxxxxxx.com, I get http://www.xxxxxxxxxx.com (as expected). However, when I go to http://xxxxxxxxxx.com/node/1 (it's a Drupal site), I get a 404 thrown and the URL changes to xxxxxxxxxx.com/var/www/drupal/node/1. Same thing with www.xxxxxxxxxx.com/node/1. Any suggestions? I want to run without Drupal's .htaccess file (instead incorporating these calls into my httpd.conf file). webmaster access_time 31 Jul 2021 - 18:24 In reply to Rewrite including filesystem path by Anonymous (not verified) I think the problem is with the base path which results in the redirection to /var/www/ part. The best approach I would think is to start with drupal htaccess and then strip out parts and move to httpd SNVC (not verified) access_time 31 Jul 2021 - 18:24 This is definitely a good guide. Thanks for this. wellyson access_time 31 Jul 2021 - 18:24 This is really nice and helpful. Pagination Current page 1 Page 2 Next page Next › Last page Last »
