Can't get the layout to look as I wish... was created by Kimberly Hitchens
I've got eDocman installed on my development site and I've worked out some issues with Mr. Dam. However, I still cannot get the URL page to look as I want and there's zero documentation on it. I'm hoping that other people that have used it will be able to provide some clear answers.
  1. This is the layout look that I want: joomdonationdemo.com/edocman/index.php/e...an-layouts/tree-list
  2. This is the layout look that I get, on my main category page: booknook.idlwebclients.com/faq/document-repository which is NOT what I want.
  3. I have changed the layout to "tree list" on the menu item.
  4. It's set as TABLE in the category layouts, in the eDocman categories, because there is no "tree layout" in the categories.

It seems that all I get is this text box, on the main URL, the one above. THEN, when you click through, you choose between the subcategories and then you see only the documents in that category. I've made a main category for the Document Repository and made the other categories subcategories; I've changed it back. NOTHING seems to work.

I JUST want the categories and subcategories to show up on the same page like the PETS page in the demo.

I don't understand it, I've never had problems like this with a plugin or module before. I just can't get it to look and work the way I want, no matter what I do. I've read the documentation over and over, what there is of it. I'm very frustrated.

Hi,
As i answered you through Ticket system, if you want to have the layout like this: joomdonationdemo.com/edocman/index.php/e...an-layouts/tree-list
You should setup menu to Edocman layout: Tree List and select parent category. Then, at frontend, the documents and subcategories will be shown on above link.

I did set it up that way and it doesn't look like that.
  1. I created a top-level category, "document repository."
  2. I set that category to TABLE layout. (The category option does not have TREE.)
  3. I then set up the MENU item to be TREE list,
  4. and it does NOT look like that.

I've changed it 4-5x, and nothing makes it look like the PETS page. I cannot get the categories and subcategories to appear. I get a text box with "Document repository" on it, on the main menu URL, and then when you click through, THEN you only see the main subcategories, not the documents. I've changed, it, changed it back, changed it again.
