Navigation Integration

The Category navigation component is used to enable navigation between different categories on a Category page or a Search page.

Navigation structure

A navigation structure must be defined in the Experience app to use the Category navigation component. The initial set-up of a navigation structure is performed by Apptus personnel.

Category page

On a Category page, the Category navigation component is recommended to be placed to the left of the Navigation page component in a horizontal layout. The Category navigation component should be hidden for mobile and tablet devices. This can be done by using CSS media queries and toggling the display mode.


Search page

The Search page can be extended to include a category navigation, both for desktop use and for mobile use. For desktop, this is done by adding the Category navigation component to the page with the additional attribute search on it. The component currently only supports a left aligned category tree and must be placed to the left of the Search results component in a horizontal layout.

Responsive category navigation

For responsive category navigation with mobile and tablet devices, the Navigation assistant component must be added to the header and made available to all pages that uses the Category navigation component. The Navigation assistant component should be hidden in a desktop layout. This can be done by using CSS media queries and toggling the display mode. It is best practice to align the media queries with breakpoints in the Layout theming properties.
