Hello.

I'm trying to transform the categories module into a hover menu, that when hovered will show subcategories and/or products in the right. Something like this site dx.com.

 

Anyone can help, point a module or at least how can i list the products?

 

Thank you

Hey there!

The module currently returns categories only using a recursive search to build the category tree. My advice would be to start from scratch and build a module that does what you require.

It's a bit complex to show products and categories in an automated way, I's suggest you add a back office option to choose which categories should display products, and which ones should instead display categories.

Then, you create a caching system that builds the categories/products index on save, so that you won't have to research all sub-items everytime (despite how it may look like, it's very resource intensive), maybe using array serialization.

The hook to a column function would only take care of unserializing the string, maybe check if you're on a category to add some active state, and displat the template

 

Cheers!
