Navigation configuration

The navigation_ez_location_root parameter is the entry root Location point for the whole navigation in the Back Office. This value is usually set to 2, the Location of the content structure.

parameters:
    siso_core.default.navigation_ez_location_root: 2
    siso_core.default.navigation_ez_depth: 3
    siso_core.default.navigation_sort_order: 'asc'

The navigation_ez_depth parameter is responsible for the main navigation depth. Content from the Back Office is fetched only up to this depth. This does not include the product catalog, which has its own depth specified.

Use navigation_sort_order to set the order of sorting by priority.

Fetching content

To define which Content Types should be included in the navigation, set the types parameter:

1

siso_core.default.navigation.catalog:
    types: ["st_module", "folder", "article", "landing_page", "ses_productcatalog", "blog"]
    sections: [1, 2]
    enable_priority_zero: true

To fetch content from different Sections, provide the Section IDs in configuration.

If you want to fetch all Content Types, even those with priority 0, use the enable_priority_zero parameter. By default this is set to false.

To use a different field as the navigation node label, change the label_fields parameter. The parameter takes Field Type identifier for siso_core.default.navigation.content and Solr field name for siso_core.default.navigation.catalog.

The field has to exist in Solr indexed data.

1
2
siso_core.default.navigation.catalog:
    label_fields: ['name_s']

You can define the name used for navigation in configuration. The label_fields parameter contains a list of attribute names (Solr names) that are used as the name in the menu. The first available attribute is used.

Caution

The standard attribute name_s does not always contain the correct translation. When name_s is used in label_fields, navigation may not be translated. To resolve this, configure the ID of the attribute directly e.g. ses_category_ses_name_value_s.

Additional navigation node information

You can also add additional information about the navigation node with additional_fields. The fields have to exist in Solr indexed data.

siso_core.default.navigation.catalog:
    additional_fields: ['ses_category_ses_code_value_s', 'ses_category_ses_name_value_s']

Displaying images instead of labels in navigation

You can use an additional field to display an image from the content model instead of the node label:

parameters:   
    siso_core.default.navigation.content:
        ...
        additional_fields: ['name', 'short_description', 'show_children', 'image']

You need to adapt the template to render the image instead of the label, for example:

1
2
3
4
5
6
7
8
9
{% block label %}

  {% if(item.getExtra('image')) %}
    <img src="{{ item.getExtra('image') }}"/>
  {% else %}
    {{ item.label|raw }}
  {% endif %}

{% endblock %}

Disabling the product catalog

To hide the whole catalog from the navigation, set the product_catalog_enabled parameter to false:

siso_core.default.product_catalog_enabled: false
