I would like to build a custom menu structure based on cck fields.

lets say I have 2 fields in which I will type the menu item.

  • parent item = field_category
  • child item= field_subcategory

So in a node create form i use for 'field_category' apples or pears and for 'field_subcategory' green or red.

These items will also be made terms(i have a 3rd field containing tags that are equal to all menu items)

my menu structure is like:

  • apples
    • green
    • red
  • pears
    • green
    • red

my terms are: apples, pears,red, gree.

Then part 2: These items must be linking to a term or multiple terms.

  • apples --> links to term apples
    • green --> links to term apples AND green
    • red --> links to term apples AND red
  • pears
    • green
    • red

I suspect i wuould need a custom module to do so, but i am not a programmer...so I really hope someone has a solution with contrib.

If you're only concerned about taxonomy term fields, then I reckon that you should investigate the taxonomy_menu or similar family of modules. In fact, looking at your other post, I suggest that you go through the entire list of taxonomy modules on Drupal in general :)

  • problem with taxonomy menu = I can create term on the fly into parent/child relation. taxonomy menu does not work for me on this one because it needs to have some pre-created struture.
