Kazaam! is now Joomla 3.4 compatible, and has been fully updated to be faster, more efficient and more fun than ever before!

Please help me make the purchase decision!
How will work your component if when saving material you select category for which the menu item wasn't earlier created?
Is it possible to call a script of your component from other script for rebuild the menu?

Hello,

If the category doesn't exist in the menu, the new article item will be added to the root of the Kazaam menu, so it will be towards the bottom under all the other categories.

I'm sorry, there is currently no way to call the kazaam plugin with a cronjob, or from a different script.

I hope that helps

The menus are automatically created based on your categories and articles. They are sorted according to your category / article sort order.

Hi Barnaby, I love this extension and widely recommend it to all. I would consider buying the pro version but I don't know if the functionality I require exists.

I want to have automatically generated single article menu items when someone makes a new menu item. I don't want it to be category blog because I have created a category blog override. I would like some of the single articles to have my single article override, and others to have a different one. The same goes for categories.

Does Kazaam do that? If so you solve a major Joomla! problem that people often use K2 to solve, and I can write an awesome article about that.

Hello Eoin,

Thank you for getting in touch. I regret I don't think Kazaam can do what you're asking... it's good with creating standard menu items when a category or article is created or changed, but it's not good at doing overrides. This would add a real layer of complexity to the software.

Hi -

I just purchase the Pro edition and have installed it on my dev site (I never install anything on production until I prove it works in dev!)

The component is now there, but it does not list my previously existing Kazaam menu in the Control Panel.

how do I get my original menu to show up there?

Thanks!

P.S. Have you given any though to not automatically adding articles that are scheduled to be publish in a future date? (see my earlier comment dated June 15, 2016).

Hi there June,

Your older Kazaam! menu is not available in the Kazaam! component - because the new component is offers much more complex functionality.

You should find that your old Kazaam! menu is still available in the Menu Manager. You can recreate it if you like in the Kazaam! component, or else build new menus.

Hi,

I'm using version 1.0.4 on Joomla 3.5.1 and it works really well! Just one thing.... Articles that have a FUTURE publish date get added to the menu right away - so, if the user clicks on that Item in the menu, they get a 404 page.

Is there a way to not add items that have "publish_up" dates in the future?

I realize that would mean a manual rebuild of the menu after the article publishes, but that is better than the alternative.....

Still a great product, though! :)

Hi June,

I'm afraid this isn't quite possible - since there's not a 'trigger' that could be used to then rebuild the menu. The article publish up and down happens when a certain time is reached, but it doesn't trigger any further actions, and the action can't be accessed. So the easiest way is to generate the menu as normal (which should create an unpublished menu item) and then to publish the menu item when needed.

Would it be possible to do a regen with a CRON job? So - if I set my article to publish at say 6am and then run a cron at 6:05 to regenerate the menu? Would something like that work?

Yes you could potentially do that, although Kazaam is designed to work with the Joomla admin UI rather than with a cron job. You would need to open /plugins/system/kazaam/kazaam.php and adjust the script so that it can work with your cron.

Hi there, I just downloaded the free version of Kazaam (1.0.4 - people here talk about 1.6.4 but that's not what downloads - free version is different?) to try out before buying.
Looks great, but in Joomla v3.5 it runs this error:

We are trying on Joomla! 3.5.0 and have tried on both a wamp and live with the same results. This is a shame because the plugin is working and adding our menu items correctly. The client just doesn't want to see any error messages.

Hi Barnaby,

I recently upgraded to the latest version of Joomla (3.5) and had been using Kazaam version 1.6.4.

I'd like to give your new free version a try before making a decision on purchasing.

Do I need to uninstall the old version before installing the new version or can it just be installed over top of the old version?

Thanks!

Hello,

If you were using an old version of Kazaam, yes it might be best to uninstall and then reinstall. This will not affect any of your existing menus, and you'll just need to configure Kazaam after installation.

I have not used the pro version yet but the free version works great!
One thing I would like to do is with the categories in the menu which are currently links to category pages, have these as just as menu headings. So that the only links are the articles themselves.

Does the pro version do this?

Hi there David

The Pro version is the same as the basic version of Kazaam, but you can add more menus, and have more control over what appears in each menu.

The categories create menu links to categories... unfortunately with my current commitments I don't have time to rewrite the functionality to make the categories placeholders. Sorry about that!

Hopefully it's still useful for you

Hello Barnaby, I am wondering if your extension would work with Flexicontent CKK? I see it works with K2 as do a few others similar in nature but I haven't found anything to work with Flexicontent just yet - but I did just start looking! The menu I need to create will not actually be published its just to make nice urls for all the pages. I purchased your HTML2ARTICLES extension and it is awesome so I'll gladly purchase more from you that suit my needs.

Great plugin, so I bought the Pro Edition... but my menu has several 'single article' items pointed to articles allocated to 'uncategorized'.

I have to ad 'uncategorised' as a category in Kazaam's list to include these. But then, if I update any items in 'uncategorised', they get added to the menu as well.

If I regenerate the menu from scratch, these all get set up as menu items under a category menu item for uncategorised - I don't want to have a drop-down submenu titled 'uncategorised' for 'Home' and other uncategorised single-article menu items.

In short: how can I set up Kazaam not to mess with root-level 'single article' menu items?

Hi Ventilator (great name!)

In brief, you can't have a menu that has both categories and articles, and single articles that aren't nested in a category.

The only way to do what you want is with two separate menus. One having categories and articles nested, and the other with no categories, and articles only, pulled from the uncategorised category

I hope that helps

Hi Jules,

Thank you for getting in touch, and I'm sorry you hit some sort of problem here.

After moving articles, menus should instantly change. Do you know if your Joomla cache is turned on - perhaps the system hadn't 'seen' the change in the article manager?

What sort of errors do you get when opening the menu items?

If you could send me a login and tell me a specific menu item that's not working I'll check what's happening for you.

Hi Frank,

Thank you for your question. The generated menu is the same as any other menu in the Menu Manager, so to display it expanded, you set up your menu module, and change the setting to ensure the menu is expanded.

This is the same for the PRO and the Free Edition.

I hope that is what you meant? Please let me know if I can help further. All the best, Barnaby Dixon

OK I see. Technically you'd need 6 different plugins to do this, but obviously be aware that each one would add to the 'save' time associated with a new category.

I don't officially support Kazaam! any more, and offer it just as Open Source freeware - but the way to do this is edit the plugin, edit the .xml and .php files and rename plg_kazaam to plg_kazaam1 wherever it exists. Then also rename the filenames to _kazaam1 whereever they're called kazaam. Then save the zip and install it, and it should work...

Hi, It looks like a really helpful extension. It would be great for a site I am working on except I need to be able to filter so I can auto create a menu for one group and then an create an entire separate menu for group 2 based on the category would be great. I am thinking if you create a special module type that allowed you to filter based on all categories selected for auto generation it would be really helpful.

This plugin does most of what I need, but there is one critical thing missing...

If I create an article in one of the published categories for Kazaam then the menu item is created - so far so good!

The problem is, if I then reassign the article to a category which is not part of the Kazaam menus then the menu item is not removed.

What I am trying to do is have the Kazaam generated menus for the current articles on a site, but when they are no longer relevant I move them to an 'archive' category which does not generate a new menu item for each article.

Is there a way to achieve what I'm trying to do?

Hi there JF,

Removing the extension will not break your menus. Kazaam is 'static' that is, it acts once to create the 'Kazaam' menu, and from then on, it only runs if you update or create articles or categories.

If your menus are broken, it will be due to something else. Perhaps you removed an SEO component at the same time?

So far so good, but i use jcomments for comments in the articles. and now, nobody cant write any comments, because i cant choose in the settings of the jcomments plugin the categorie i used for kazaam.

Any chance to fix this problem, or do i make the mistake?

It works exactly as it is shown. Top notch application.

It is now possible to select which categories it should generate the menu from this is great. But it would be even greater to have an option where it automatically adds all the categories.

So you select in the plugin:

Option 1: Choose which categories

or

Option 2: All categories

So when you create a categorie you no longer have to add it through the kazaam plugin because it already does it then.

The inofficial(?) Version 2.0.11beta from gruz shows into the right direction.

http://gruz.org.ua/uk/extensions/kazaam-automatic-menu/2_0_11_beta.html

But there are some problems:
* category order is not respected but menus are in reverse order (I have a little patch for this problem)
* under unknown circumstances the menues integrate the first category though it is disabled - I'm searching/debugging for the fix right now
* one feature is missing: for a project I would need to define a different templatestyle for use with one of my generated menus - I will try to make a suitable patch
* within extensions.joomla.org it is said, that the actual version of this fine plugin is "2.0.10 (last update on Jul 24, 2013)", but you are sent to this site, where you can download only v1.6.4!???

I'm willing to contribute to this nice plugin, if you could host it on joomlaforge...

Thanks so far and greetz,
Andy

I'd be interested in the patch that makes Kazaam! respect the category order. Is it available somewhere?

Hi
I'm not sure where Feature Requests go on this site, but I am going to add it here.

When a new menu is created for an article and it is viewed, the article has a dashed line at the top showing (either the article category or the menu item name) not sure which - If I then access the menu and resave it, this goes away. I used to have this same issue with a popup plugin I had and it was corrected by adding an &itemid=435 to the Link field.

Is it possible to remove this problem in a future release - I can send some screen prints to show what I mean, if you want to email me directly?

I think I added this post in the wrong place - i put it in your discussion. Please feel free to remove it from there, as I have repeated it Here...

Kazaam! - fabulous extension - exactly what I need but ...

I need to be able to generate two sets of submenus for all the articles in the same category - One linked to Top and One Linked to Main Menu. I repeated the menu#x entry in the plugin and amended them acccordingly, but it seems to only create the submenus in the last of the entries as it reads down them, so menu#1 did not have the submenus created but menu#2 did. I assume its because they both relate to the same input category.

Is there a way to get around this, or could this be added to a future release?

Works great for published articles but not for scheduled ones.

When an article is scheduled for future publishing, a menu item is still created but then delivers a 404 error.

How can this be fixed?

Great Plugin.
Question: Kazaam will add a title in articles, corresponding to menu item.
I don't want it, because I want to use the article title.
Is it possible to remove it?

Nasty bug: If I set site home to an item from Kazaam menu, editing and saving a new article resets this setting
=> Site home is now Page Not Found Error

Would really like to see a way to preserve the menu types that exist so they don't constantly get reset every time the menu is rebuilt. Ideally, the top level menu would be a list and all lower levels be type blog.

I couldn't get the option to build the menu off an existing menu item to work properly. It would always build the menu at the same level, not below it.

It's a reallly nice plu-in, but I have two issues, when using it in 3.1.

1. It creates menues for every article. Even archived. While the menu items aren't visisble in the front end, it eally messes up the "assign to menu" when managing modules (I have some 500 archived items and ...).

2. Therere's no way to control how the articles are presented. It doesn't obey the settings for "Show Intro, "show article info" etc". They should default to the settings for each article.

great plugin, can be used to save a lot of time. BUT when a new category is added, and menu rebuilt, the ordering is changed. So time is needed to correct the order of the menu items :-(
