Demo of the menu Accordeon CK



The menu Accordeon CK is an advanced menu system that allows you to insert some descriptions for each menu link, to load any module in the menu structure, and display some image beside the text or just without any text.


Adding a description to the link of the menu

To add a description, you must put two vertical separators "||". You can add some description on any link item of the menu. Example :

Title of the link||Description of the link

maximenuck desc 1 en

Screenshot of the structure :

maximenuck desc 2 en


Adding a module in the menu

To load a module you just have to call it with its ID. You must create a 'separator' menu item and write in the title the call to the module. Example :


Screenshot of structure of the menu :

maximenuck module 2 en

To find ID of the module to load, go to modules manager in your Joomla! website. The last column gives you the information.

maximenuck module 1 en


TIPS: you can load the module in a fictive position (that doesn't exist in the template) just by typing the name (ici 'maximenuCK') in the field 'position' .
