RokNavMenu Exporter 1.1 For Joomla 2.5x Released

Few days ago, a new version of RokNavMenu is released, i.e. RokNavMenu 1.1. This latest version features inbuilt theme such as fusion, a complex dropdown menu system with option JavaScript modes and URL extension capabilities.

Powerful core menu component roknavmenu is a powerful menu module which provides functions above and beyond the capabilities of the core Joomla menu. It provides a feature rich platform for extending the menu, allowing for override and plugins for the menu itself, in addition to versatile theming capabilities and so much more.

The best thing I like about this extension is that it is now available for Joomla 1.5 and Joomla 1.7

Before using our generated menu, we have to set some phpbb3 settings as well to enable support for RokNavMenu Exporter. First of all, you need to have both latest version of the RockBB3 phpbb3 administration component and phpbb3 style you want to use. If you have all necessary things installed. You need to select RockBB3 Global Configuration section to set some setting.

  1. Path to your Joomla installation. It must be relative path. Usually absolute inclusion is blocked on servers. Basically if you are using phpbb3 in bridged mode, you should put there only: “../” , this will point rokbb3 to search for files one directory up.
  2. Name of the file for non-registered users of your forum. Copy this value from your plugin settings in Joomla, files names must be the same as set in Joomla plugin settings.
