ADDON: CS2 Accordion Menu FREE

This addon is for an accordion type menu ( Instructions are included in the zip file, remember to use FireFox to download as IE corrupts zips.

This was more a test to see what could be done as an addon without touching the core files at all.

It will only go to two category levels, that’s all i needed it to do. Some screeshots are included. Some settings can be changed in admin. Readme file is included.

It has been tested on v2.0.3, v2.0.4 and v2.0.3 to v2.0.4 upgrade.

I’ll try and get a demo up and running.

This addon creates a database table to store settings, make sure you backup backup backup. Test on non live site first. I will not be held responsible for damaged sites.



very nice, I like it…

Thank you very much baballuci,

The menu itself looks very progressional :slight_smile:

That is pretty cool. What kind of royalties are you looking for with this? :smiley:

No really, I like it. Gives the menu a whole different feel.

You are really helpful in this forum…Thank you!

Great job - thanks for posting this!

Just curious, but why did you go with the Dynamic Drive script instead of a JQuery plugin like [url][/url] ?


It was the first one i clicked on in google :smiley:

LOL, Hey charlie “good answer”…I’m just rolling now…:cool:

I’m getting an Access Denied error on the Design> Blocks page in the admin area, after installing and activating this plugin.

I went and changed a bunch of folder permissions in the backend, especially the basic template admin folders. Any other permissions I should look for to change?



Hi cheebs, i’ve not had that problem myself. Make sure /skins folder/subfolder/file permissions should all be 777.

Let me know how you get on.

I am on LOCALHOST so there are no ‘permissions’ to set. Still getting “access denied” @ /admin.php?dispatch=block_manager.manage

Just disabled “Accordion Menu” addon and got my Blocks Manager back.

I’ll try a local installation and get back to you.

Still the same access denied error, after setting the above permissions to 777.





if ( !defined('IN_CSCART') ) { die('Access denied'); }


if ( !defined('AREA') ) { die('Access denied'); }

That fixed it! Thanks, Sno! (you rock)

For some reason I’m having trouble finding the style that makes the category names show “centered” instead of aligned left. Does anyone know where to point me?



Sorry changed in next version. New version has unlimited subcategories and selectable style from admin menu.

Simply upload an folder with new style sheet and images then select it from the backend.

Should be ready in the next couple of days.

Hi Charlie,

Just wondering if you had a chance to wrap this up?



Any news here on this addon? I wish the cs core have this functions of different menus, because its terrible if the customer click every time again to see the whole menu. therefore a accordion menu is much better!

Sorry guys i’ve been so busy lately, i’ll get this sorted asap for you.

I did something similar here [URL=“Articles | Realtree Camo”][/URL]

I used the jQuery accordion functionality.
