Moving Categories to Quick Link area


I am using Dark Whiteness skin. I was wanting to basically have the categories at the top of my page…simular to this

Actually exactly like the above…

I have played around with both css and the top, top_menu.tpl files… but i dont seem to be making much leeway…

any thoughts would be great.!!!


If you reareange the logo wich gets in the way in order to bring top menu to go up, and float the top menu right with 80% width and then bring the cart on the left in the same div with 20% width and left float, then you are very close to that…

All that is located in top.tpl


I seem to be making a mess of this…here is the current tpl in the original format…

{* $Id$ *}


{include file="top_quick_links.tpl"}

{include file="top_menu.tpl"}


{hook name="index:user_info"}
{assign var="escaped_current_url" value=$config.current_url|escape:url}
{if !$auth.user_id}
{if $user_info.firstname && $user_info.lastname}{$user_info.firstname} {$user_info.lastname}{else}{$}{/if}
({include file="buttons/button.tpl" but_role="text" but_href="auth.logout?redirect_url=`$escaped_current_url`" but_text=$lang.sign_out})

{if $settings.General.secure_auth != "Y"}


{include file="views/auth/login_form.tpl" style="popup" form_name="login_popup_form" id="popup"}


{include file="common_templates/search.tpl"}


{include file="views/checkout/components/cart_status.tpl"}

{if $localizations|sizeof > 1}
{include file="common_templates/select_object.tpl" style="graphic" suffix="localization" link_tpl=$config.current_url|fn_link_attach:"lc=" items=$localizations selected_id=$smarty.const.CART_LOCALIZATION display_icons=false key_name="localization" text=$lang.localization}


{if $languages|sizeof > 1}
{include file="common_templates/select_object.tpl" style="graphic" suffix="language" link_tpl=$config.current_url|fn_link_attach:"sl=" items=$languages selected_id=$smarty.const.CART_LANGUAGE display_icons=true key_name="name" language_var_name="sl"}


{if $currencies|sizeof > 1}
{include file="common_templates/select_object.tpl" style="graphic" suffix="currency" link_tpl=$config.current_url|fn_link_attach:"currency=" items=$currencies selected_id=$secondary_currency display_icons=false key_name="description"}


ok i think i have managed to sort this out …thank you


Care to share?


Well I didn't figure it out completely, just somewhat. So I'm left with a few questions…


How do I again move the Cart Is empty Image, and the checkout above to the left of the home button . As well as move the Language and US Dollars above to the right of company?

I have messed about in the TOP.tpl , but im not doing it correct…

thank you again…
