This module displays your store's categories as dropdown menus. When a category is chosen, its sub-categories are dynamically loaded in the next dropdown. This process repeats until you reach the bottom sub-category or, if you choose, that category's products. Selecting the furthest sub-category or product will take the customer to that page.

  • Upload and go — modifies no core files.
  • Set the first dropdown to show all top-level categories, or to start with a specific category.
  • Set the last dropdown to show the further sub-categories, or products of the further sub-category.
  • Choose whether to load categories statically (faster for few categories), or dynamically (faster for many categories).
  • Optionally display a "Go" button that allows the customer to go to a category without choosing one of its sub-categories.
  • Edit the module heading, "Go" button text, and initial dropdowns text directly through the admin panel.
  • All dropdowns accurately reflect the current category, sub-category, or product location, and work properly with SEO URLs. Category lists are automatically cached to improve performance.

Updated to v300.1

Due to limitations in the opencart.com license system, a new extension was released on opencart.com for OpenCart 3.0 compatibility. However, free updates are still available for anyone that has purchased the extension in July 2016 or after --- just contact Clear Thinking here: http://www.getclearthinking.com/contact

Release Notes:
- Added: compatibility with OpenCart 3.0.0.x
- Added: native compatibility with OpenCart 2.3.0.x (You can remove the compatibility fix, or keep using it if you want to)
- Added: info in the admin page to see which layouts the module is assigned to
- Fixed: HTML support for the module heading setting
- Removed: compatibility with OpenCart 1.5.x and 2.0.0.0 for new versions

Updated to v302.1

Release Notes:

- NOTE: Starting with this version, all template files will use the .twig extension. These will still work completely fine on OpenCart 2.x versions, and still use the .tpl-type syntax. However, if you've made edits to the .tpl file, you'll need to port those edits over to the new file.

- Confirmed: compatibility with OpenCart 3.0.2.x
