<r:sub_menu />

Lists the child pages that are direct descendants of the current page as an unordered list.

So, if you had:

  • Parent 1
    • Child 1
    • Child 2
    • Child 3
  • Parent 2
  • Parent 3
    • Child 4
    • Child 5
    • Child 6
  • Parent 4

...and you put <r:sub_menu />on "Parent 1", it will list "Child 1", "Child 2", and "Child 3".

If you put <r:sub_menu />on "Parent 2", no pages would be listed.

Attribute Options

ul_class="your-class" - The class that the unordered list will have.

ul_id="your-id" - The ID that the unordered list will have.

li_class="some-li-class" - The class applied to each list item.

link_class="some-a-class" - The class applied to each anchor tag in the list.

max_depth="number" - The number of levels from the root level that CleanSlate should list navigation for.

active_class="your-class" - The class that gets added to the <a>tag of the page you are currently on.

open_class="your-class" - The class that gets applied to every <li>tag containing the current page.

has_children_class="your-class" - Adds a class to any <li> that contains and unordered list.

sub_ul_class="your-submenu-class" - Adds a class to any <ul> at the second level or deeper. Also adds an additional class based on level. For example, if you named your class your-submenu-class, it's going to output your-submenu-class your-submenu-class--level-1 for the first level. For nested <ul>'s two levels deep, it will output your-submenu-class your-submenu-class--level-2. View an example of the markup this tag generates.

include_link_ids="false" - Boolean. Default value: false Enables/disables output of ID's set via the Link Attributes tab in Page Properties on anchor tags (<a>).

NOTE: Be careful enabling this on r:sub_menu. If you don't have this set to false on r:site_menu, r:breadcrumbs, and r:ancestor_menu, you will have duplicate ID's being output for the main navigation and ancestor navigation.


<r:sub_menu ul_id="some-submenu" ul_class="menu" li_class="some-li-class" link_class="some-a-class" active_class="active" open_class="open" max_depth="2" has_children_class="your-class" sub_ul_class="your-submenu-class" include_link_ids="false" />
