    I would think this would have been easy but I just cannot figure this out. At this point, I'm going to reign in my male ego and just ask for help.

    I have downloaded an HTML5 template from Themeforest and I'm trying to convert it to a MODx site. The template in question seems to be a really good one.

    The template provides many variations of different menus but I'm really only interested in a simple dropdown menu...nothing too exotic, just a basic vertical dropdown. A sample of the hardcoded menu that I'm interested in would look like this (I've edited it down to its simplest form for you to see):

     <div class="panel-group" id="accordionMenu" role="tablist" aria-multiselectable="true">
      
        <div class="panel panel-default">
          <div class="panel-heading  " role="tab" id="headingOne">
            <h4 class="panel-title content-page-white">
            <a role="button" data-toggle="collapse" data-parent="#accordionMenu" href="#collapseOne" aria-expanded="true" aria-controls="collapseOne">
              Sport Turfs
            </a>
          </h4>
          </div>
          <div id="collapseOne" class="panel-collapse collapse" role="tabpanel" aria-labelledby="headingOne">
            <div class="panel-body">
              <ul class="nav">
                <li><a href="products-sport-turfs.html">All</a></li>

    Could you please help me with making it dynamic via pdoMenu or WayFinder. I would really appreciate it and it will help me alot in learning ModX.

      Once you've got it working in Wayfinder, it's usually simple to change to PdoMenu.

      • wayfinder is really easy where you put all the linked pages you want into a folder in your tree, and that's the parent folder the wayfinder will output them all. want another one throw it in there.

        Just call it with parent folder and whatever specifications you want.

        would be interesting to see a wayfinder to pdomenu process
