Placeholder items for Mezzanine menus.
The menuplaceholder application allows users to add placeholders to the menu of a Mezzanine CMS website. Menu placeholders are “dummy” menu items, which can be used for organising submenus. Users can view them (and their children); unlike other types of menu items (such as those for rich text pages), users cannot click on placeholders to open them. Menu placeholders are provided to structure the hierarchy of pages on a site, but are not used to provide content.
The menuplaceholder app works with the following things:
- Primary menus
- Mobile menus
- Dropdown menus
Installation and usage
Like any Python app, one goes:
python setup.py install
Then add "menuplaceholder" to INSTALLED_APPS in the settings.py file for your Django installation. Afterwards:
python manage.py makemigrations menuplaceholder python manage.py migrate
Once this is done, adding a placeholder menu item (or ten) is trivial.
- Go to the Mezzanine dashboard.
- Under Content, click on Pages in order to “Select Page to change”.
- Pick the part of the menu hierarchy you wish to add a menu placeholder, and click on “Add…”. The dropdown menu now have a new item: “Menu placeholder”. Select it.
- Choose a Title and then click on Save.
The menuplaceholder app has been trialled with both Python 2.7 and 3.5. The other dependencies are:
- Django (1.*x*; has not been tested on 2.*x*)
- Mezzanine (4.*x*)
- 0.1 (April 5th 2018) - Initial release.
