Browse by Catergory

Take a look at the “Browse by Category” menu on the Softpress site here http://www.softpress.com/kb/categories/Publishing+and+Uploading/

I need to create something similar. First up, what kind of menu/list is that? I can’t find anything similar within Freeway.

Secondly, I want to link to external sites rather than pages within the site. I presume this is possible, but I can’t figure it out. What’s confusing me is how to create different links for the “Go” button depending on whats selected in the category menu.

Thanks in advance

Hi James,

Take a look at the Navigation Popup Action, it does exactly that.

Thanks Joe.
That does the linking OK, but it doesn’t look the best, as the list is quite long.

I’m sure there’s a simple solution - how can I make it a pull down menu, with only the first option visible initially

Sounds like the item in Freeway is too big, try making it around 25px high or so.

One more thing. How can I add more fields to the navigation pop-up? I’ve completed the full 20 and cant see where I can create more. I’m going to need about 40

It’s a case of re-entering them though, sorry.
