  • Resolved EBurden


    Is the ability to have a dropdown menu of the categories not possible in the free version. I have seen it in your paid template samples but I can not find any shortcode to get it to work in the basic version.

    I’ll buy a template if necessary, just want to be sure I need it as I like the basic template, I just would like the menu option.

    Thank you,

    Yes, you’ll need one of the premium templates. If you like the Default template, then I highly recommend the cMap template.

    It has a similar layout and you can use the cMap Template Customizer, to change the colors to style it to look like the Default template.

    I hope this helps. Please let me know. And, my apologies for the delay in my reply!!!

    Thanks. Answers my question.

    I’m now actually considering a category menu with links to a separate page for each category, which I can accomplish with shortcode.

    Thanks again,

    If you would like to add categories to your nav menu you would add custom menu links on the WordPress Menus admin page.

    You would use the same page and change the category query variable (cn-cat) to the category ID you wish the directory to be filtered by.

    Here is an example from our demo page for cMap:

    You would use the same structure as this example link but change the domain to your site and change the number to the category ID which you what the directory to filter by.

    I hope this helps, let me know.
