Here is a link list style menu for Virtuemart products categories. <ul><li>Contrary to the original link list menu from "<em>Virtumart module"</em>, this menu has a <strong>clean XHTML outpout</strong>, highlighted by classes, and the tree is preserved (talking about the "uncles" level messing up).</li><li>Like "<em>Extended Menu</em>", you can decide wich menu level to show. It allows you to <strong>"split" different ranks</strong> by copying your module and changing the position and configuration of the new clone.</li></ul>
I was actually looking for a menu like this, but unfortunately it doesn't behave properly when other joomla menus (mod_mainmenu) are used on the site.
In this case setting the active class doesn't work properly. The module doesn't seem to reset the active class, so the item of a formerly visited menu (mod_mainmenu) stays active.
I tried to contact the author twice, but never got a response...

I hve been searching for days for a way to split up a multi-category menu into sections. The forum is full of questions, but not many answers. All of the solutions require hardcore hacks, which I don't like.
Your module provided the solution ! I modified this section to be:
if (substr($texte,0,6) !=='spacer')
if ($menu_element['active']>0 && $rankminur modified module outputs 'this_header' without a link, but with the class of "vmMenuSpacer", so I can do what I want with it.
Feel free to use this as you wish

Unfortunately my French is very poor, so after installing the module I got stuck because of lack of documentation (or is it my ignorance)?.
I do get my menu items listed horizontally but how do I style them? What kind of html is generated and what are the name of the divs I will need to style in my css?
