I have bought the profesional package with the mega-dropdown menu. I like the menu -VM category- as on the demo page of the mega-menu.

The menu for the webshop I have chosen 'Category Layout'. I have tried with manufactor and without manufactor (please select)
It is a mulit-language site. But were can find the associations remark "To define associations, please make sure the item language is not set to 'All'."
I have no link because it is on my localhost. It is Joomla 3.9 with virtuemart 3.4.2. (both the latest version).

What is the exact difference between mod_linelabmenu and the VM Mega menu? In the past and for other websites I have used the mod_linelabmenu.

Is there a change that I can have look how it is configured at demo site of mega-dropdown menu with guest/guest for example?

With regards,

I had download that template, installed it. Also the mega-down menu and install. But the menu which I now understand on position-7 is not the mega-dropdown menu but the joomla default menu.

I have now the mega dropdown menu. Put it on cbox1. But it is not "white" and not horizontal. The past mega-dropdown menu I had to add the nav as class suffix. I have tried it but this make not any changes.

Hi, If you click on the left top folder icon, you can load any of preset module skins.

But what I not understand, I have bought the mega dropdown menu. Is this necessary because if I choose "Select Default Horizontal Menu", it seems to look the same aa mega-dropdown menu, am I right?

I'm expecting that I have to download/install the Revolab theme. Install the mega dropdown menu and then configure the mega dropdown menu, like horizontal. The passt mod_linelab menu I had to add the class suffix I believe like 'nav', and than it works fine. But the menu is now integrated with the template, or...?

I have tried with the "Default Horinzontal menu" skin and with the "Default Mega Menu" skin. I have made the module extensions "mod_menulinelab" and "VM Mega Menu" in active/disabled. These module which I bought are not necessary I think.

I have the VM category
1. honden en kattenluiken (=main category)
- 1 Door unit (sub. category 1)
- 2 Wall unit (sub. category 2)

I have a menu item "Webshop", menu item type "VM category layout". If I click on that menu-item, than the page with all the category's is shown.

But than I'm try to get the bahavior of the demo, like the menu item "VM category", or "virtuemart". I have put the module "top menu" at the position "cbox1".

At my template builder, if I move with my mouse over the menu I see under the menu item "shop" Category 1 Category 2 etc.

My question is: were does it go wrong?
- Is the menu item type "VM category layout" not right? (I have not selected VM Front page because is deprecated)
- Do I expecting something which is not correct? (In the passt I have used the "mod_menulinelab"!
- Is the skin or skin configuration not right? (Although, I can select different skins, but that's it I think)
- Is my configuration of VM main -- subcategory's not correct?

I hope that you can give me an answer or help me out this issue.

Hi Nico, "Default Horizontal menu skin" is the default Joomla menu module. Please use mod_menulinelab_all.zip. or VirtueMart Extralarge Menu https://www.linelab.org/extensions/joomla-extensions/virtuemart-extralarge-menu-detail . If you want, we can send for free Extralarge Menu module for testing purpose. Please contact us directly at linelabox@linelabox.com.

I don't know what you exactly mean with the "Extralarge Menu Module, but if could help, than I like to receive it. But for me it is enough if it works like dogtra or dogwatch

I'm quite thinking straight forward. I have used the templates with mod_menulinelab in the past (J2.5 and J3.x)

I have bought the mod_menulinelab_all.zip a few weeks ago and installed.
See my screenshots:
1. What I see at the template builder
2. Is the result on my development environment with the mod_menulinebab active on position cboxq. The behavior is total different of what I see at the template builder.

I have installed mod_menulinelab_all.zip but use the default configuration. The past mod_modlinelabmenu you had to fill in the prefix of the class 'nav'. But I haven't done it now, I don't know if something is needed.

So what I not understand: what is left? What I'm doing wrong? Were do I make my mistake or what did I not read of the tutorials?

Again, maybe it has nothing todo with it, but I'm developing a multi language site, I have chosen the general main-menu, not the specific language like nl-nl or de-de.

Hello Frantisek,

How can we make progress? I don't know what I'm doing wrong? This evening I was thinking I must not add a menu skin because the css of the default menu skin is added. But this doesn't bring anything.

I don't know what is going wrong.

I hope that you can help me out.

Oh I discovered now, that I can choose 12 predefined module styles. But must I choose a menu skin in combination predefined module style to get the mod_menulinelab working?

How do I get this simply working? This driven me mad and insane. I do not understand what I need to do to get this simply working!

Because of it's migration of Joomla 2.5/VM2 to a Joomla 3.9.1/VM3.4 I have installed virtuemart demo full installation. I have installed here the template and the mod_linelab as well. But the same problem! (see screenshot).
One strange thing I can't delete the mod_linelab module with joomla --> manage menu item. I thought that I could always uninstall components/plugins/modules.

What I also have done is updating the website dogwatch on my localhost. I have used the mod_linelab menu as well (2015). Here with this template/mod_linelab menu is correct working.

For me it seems a problem between the template and the mod_linelab menu.

But how can we solve this this weekend or before this weekend.

With regards,
