Menu Dependent Items Module

Now compatible with Joomla! 1.5, 1.6, 1.7 and 2.5

This Module displays an image or loads a CSS-File depending recursively on the active menu item and the menus structure.

E.g. you can simply change header images or the color of article titles corresponding to the structure of your website by using this module. But it can be very powerful too by completely changing the view of your pages by adding different style sheets without the need of making multiple templates.

Version 1.2.1
- Fixed problem with language files when running on php 5.2

Version 1.2.0

Version 1.1.0
New Features:

- Look for menu type (Unique Menu Name) before using default file
- Removed notice when menu tree not set
- Exit module, when directory does not exist

Version 1.0.1
Bugfix: Fixed PHP-Warning, when menu tree does not exist.

I cannot recommend this module enough, its awesome and the support from Christian when the language file would not appear when the site is running on PHP 5.2.x was nothing short of exceptional. I had an updated module to install within 24hrs of contacting Christian. EXCELLENT!

I'm so relieved to find this extension. It saved me instantly from having to create, manage and assign multiple (and almost identical) templates. Brilliant!

I used this 2 years ago and it worked great, needed to use it again recently, still great. It basically allows me to conditionally load an additional stylesheet (for CSS overrides) depending on the page the user is on. I use it to change header graphics in sections.

One tip, I got stuck for bit, it seems the module doesn't output the CSS include code unless the physical CSS file with the correct name already exists. Once I figured that out I was fine.

In my case I use thins module to create CSS for additional language in my site.
The reason I'm using this for additional language it's because my main language is RTL and when clients ask me to add only 1 or 2 pages in LTR language, this module is perfect for this purpose.

Just wanted to say what a superb module this is! Does exactly what I have been pulling my hair out trying to do for a couple of weeks!

As a total newbie to joomla I did have a couple of issues setting it up, but found the answers reading the support documentation, and also the developers forum where other users had similar issues.

Once working it is brilliant, cheers!

I was looking for something like this for hours and I come across this module. At first I didn't know why it didn't work but at last I solved the problem with help of Christian Ludwig.
I had problems because:
- My joomla was installed in the subdirectory and I didn't set the path properly
- From the templates I didn't remove the path to original css file.

Now it let me change anything on the website I want. Changing top image or colors now isn't a problem. Using it is very easy.
I'm very pleased especially of help of Christian Ludwig.
Thank you.
