Vertical Navigation with CSS Classes

Vertical Category Navigation with subcategories, fine css classes and backend configuration.

<p>With this extension you're able to design you own vertical category navigation with subcategories and product count display. Each element has a fine css'ing so you can address each element or group exactly including "first" and "last" element per group and "previos", "active" and "next" child.</p>
<p>By default the module removes the top.navigation via XML-Update and places the vertical nav in "left" structural block.</p>
<p>Several options can be controlled in your AdminPanel under <strong>system -> configuration -> catalog</strong> as per StoreView:</p>
<ul>
<li>Hide Vertical Navigation (yes/no)</li>
<li>Hide Top Navigation (yes/no)</li>
<li>Display Product Count (yes/no)</li>
<li>Expand on Top Level (yes/no)</li>
<li>Expand all categories (yes/no</li>
<li>Expand all max depth (number)</li>
<li>Root Categories (Store base, current Category, Same Level as current Category, Category Level 2, Category Level 3)</li>
<li>Fallback to store base (yes/no)</li>
</ul>
<p>You should modify the vertnav.css-file in your skin folder to fit your needs. (Please note: do not change the base/default skin file! The delivered CSS file is for showcase purposes only!)</p>
