I am trying to redevelop my website with a new theme. I want to be able to list all the categories as static menu items on a left hand menu. To this end I have selected the Blank Pro Theme.

I understand this is not a feature of the software but I believe there is a method of achieving this. I would be grateful for any advice.

Please be advised when responding you are dealing with an amateur!

Really disappointed at the lack of response. I was given to believe this modification was achievable and consequently had hoped for some assistance.

This has been my first post on a Coffee Cup forum and the lack of response does not fill me with optimism for future assistance.

Hey Wairds,

Sorry for your lack of response as I honestly didn't see this post until now. Are you OK with having both menus horizontal and vertical? Here is an example of a static menu on the left... Is that your desired effect.

Greatly appreciate your response. Would have responded earlier but am located in the UK!

What I would like to achieve is a vertical menu on the left hand side of the screen which would expand/collapse through the categories/sub-categories as the customer navigated through the menu items.

By way of an example I attach the website I am trying to redevelop. As you can see the customer has to hover over the Shop menu item to view the categories. What I would like to achieve is for the top-level categories to be listed vertically on the left hand side of the screen and for the sub-categories to be listed in a similar fashion if the customer selects the high level category.

Hope that makes sense. I would greatly appreciate any advice you can give me!
