    Insert a ReadyTheme Navigation Set "inside" Cattree

    Is it possible to insert a ReadyTheme Navigation Set within the Category Tree Template to display after a specific category? Or could I create categories and set up URI redirects to the links needed? I do not want to build an entire cat tree navigation by hand, please.

    Hi Leslie,

    Technically, I believe you could. However, I'm not sure what the impact would be on page load time as everything is rendered and your specific category is searched for within the loop. Give it a try and see what happens.

      To get around loading delays with largest navigation sets while avoiding manually making menus, just have your code output store the data as a text file. Then, before running that code, test for the file and only run it if the file is deleted. So, to regenerate the menu, you just delete the file.

      Scot @ scotsscripts.com wrote a cool module that would also help here called Notification Watcher: https://www.scotsscripts.com/notification-watchers.html

      That module allows you to run code based on Miva notification such as product or catagory update.

        You can do something similar with "Transients by Tess" https://apps.miva.com/transients.html. There's documentation on using the module with navigation sets in the readme.
