Before installing myMenu onto your computer, you must first download it from the NimbleHost website.
After completing a purchase on the NimbleHost website, we will provide two ways for you to download your items:
After following these steps, the next time you start RapidWeaver myMenu will be located in the Stacks library, which is accessible from any Stacks page.
In Stacks 2, update notifications are displayed with a small red symbol in the lower right corner of the myMenu icon in the Stacks Library. Once that red symbol has appeared, select myMenu, then apply the update by clicking on the small gear icon in the lower right corner of the Stacks Library, and selecting "Install Update".
Please Note: In Stacks 2, updates may take a few minutes to appear. According to Isaiah, the developer for Stacks, this is by design, so that checking for updates doesn't interrupt your workflow. You may need to restart RapidWeaver before the update will show up, and it may take 5-10 minutes before displaying.
This section contains the main configuration settings for the myMenu stack. Each option in this section is explained in detail below.
Orientation - Here you can choose from "Vertical" or "Horizontal". This will affect how the first level of menu items is displayed, but not second level or deeper menu items.
Display Type - This setting will change how the menu is displayed on your website. With the exception of the "In place" option, each of these options will move the menu out of the main content area, and place it where you have specified with the "Side Distance" and "Top Distance" options.
Side Distance - This is the amount of distance from the left edge of the browser window, to the left edge of the menu.
Top Distance - This is the amount of distance form the top edge of the browser window, to the top edge of the menu.
Navigation Label - This label will be shown in place of the menu when certain options in the Display Type section are chosen. Hovering over this label will cause the menu items to slide into view.
Menu Width - This will adjust the width of the menu and submenu items. When the Orientation is set to "Horizontal" this width will only apply to submenu items.
Menu Drop Shadow - When checked, this option will add a drop shadow effect to the menu. To remove the drop shadow, uncheck this box.
Border Radius - Use this setting to adjust the rounded corners of the menu. To remove rounded corners move the slider all the way to the left, to zero.
Add Custom Menu Items - Check this box if you want to add your own custom items to the menu.
Placement - Use this setting to choose where you want your custom items to be displayed relative to the built-in menu items for your website.
Hide Built-in Nav Items - Check this box if you want to hide the built-in menu items for your website. This option is useful for when you only want to display your own custom menu items.
Transparent Background - Check this box if you want the background of your menu to be transparent.
BG Top Color - This sets the color of the menu background, at the top. In combination with the BG Bottom Color, this will allow you to create a color gradient if you choose different colors for each. For a solid background color, set both BG Top Color and BG Bottom Color to the same color.
BG Bottom Color - This sets the color of the menu background, at the bottom. In combination with the BG Top Color, this will allow you to create a color gradient if you choose different colors for each. For a solid background color, set both BG Top Color and BG Bottom Color to the same color.
Normal Text - This is the text color for regular menu items.
Hover BG - This is the background color of menu items when they are hovered over.
Hover Text - This is the text color of menu items when they are hovered over.
Current BG - This is the background color of the currently selected menu item.
Current Text - This is the text color of the currently selected menu item.
Top Border - This is the color of the top border for menu items.
Bottom Border - This is the color of the bottom border for menu items.
z-index value - This value is used to control whether the menu appears above or below other content on the page. A higher number will make the menu appear above other content. A lower number (including negative numbers) will make the menu appear below other content.
Hide Theme Nav - Enter the id/class name for the HTML container where your theme's built-in menu is displayed. When a value is entered here, the myMenu stack will then hide your theme's built-in menu. Please note - this is an advanced feature that can cause layout problems. Only use this setting if you are aware of the repercussions.
The myMenu stack enables you to create your own custom menu items. You can use this to create additional menu items that will be displayed with the built-in navigation, or you can choose to hide the built-in navigation so that only your custom menu items are shown.
If you would like to display your custom menu items together with the built-in navigation, you can choose where you want the custom items displayed - either before the built-in navigation, or after it.
To access this setting select the myMenu stack itself (not a myMenu Custom Item stack) and use the Placement option located in the myMenu - Custom Items section.
Yes. As long as they are installed on your Mac and show up in the Stacks Library, you can use them in your RapidWeaver websites without them conflicting with the new version.
If you used the built-in update feature that is part of the Stacks plugin, then you will need to restart RapidWeaver after updating to myMenu v2.0.
This is because the "Custom Item" stack is new to myMenu, and RapidWeaver must be restarted in order for newly installed stacks to show up in the Stacks Library.
