Summary: [edit | edit source]

Abbes menu manager was the first tool in its category. It was created in order to facilitate navigation in Dolibarr menus, by simplifying management of menu items and offering all imaginable possibilities of personalization.


  • Download the module archive file (.zip) from the website or recover it in any other way.
  • Place the file in dolibarr root directory or create a custom folder in dolibarr root and place it there with all your additional modules (If you choose this solution, remember to uncomment the two lines of the conf file in report)
  • Unzip the file with the command unzip
  • The correct module location must be of the type: htdocs/custom/menupar.
  • Go to the installation location of the module and give read and write privileges to the PHP server for the following files:
  1. menupar_consts.php
  2. menupar_default_consts.php

The module is operational and can be activated.


To use this module, you must first activate it. To do this, after logging in with an administrator account, go to the " Home - Configuration - Modules " page. The module appears in "Others", click on "Activate". A pictogram appears at the end of the module line, click on it to access the configuration page specific to this module:

Page de configuration de MenuPar
MenuPar configuration Page

We have a list of 4 parameters with a question mark which displays a detailed explanation as soon as we place the mouse on it :

  1. Display a menu entry for each product category: By default, there is only one entry in the menu to list the products. Activate this option to display an entry for each product category for users defined by the USERCAT option.
  2. USERCAT→ Users of product category menus: This parameter contains all the login names of users with an entry in the product category menus.
  3. Scrolls: Displays Scrolls in drop-down menus
  4. Length of the drop-down list: Fixed length of the drop-down list with scroll between 1 and 1000 pixels.

Activation and Use

Activating the MenuPar menu manager is different from activating the module. This is done after module activation in home menu →configuration→ menu:

Activation de MenuPar
Activation de MenuPar

Once the menu manager is activated, the left column immediately disappears and in the drop-down menus corresponding to top menu items appear as soon as you position the mouse on it:

Menu accueil
Home Menu

The four items at the top of the home menu are foldable. This gives immediate access to the final menu items.

Services menu

Since all of the menu items on the left are displayed on one level, their numbers in the drop-down menus may be significant. We can then configure the menu manager to associate a scroll with them and limit their size for all the drop-down menus other than the home menu. On the image, we also see the menu elements allowing to list products by categories available through the second configuration parameter.

Advanced functions:

Menu edition:

The MenuPar menu manager is based on the Auguria menu. One can therefore add, modify or delete menu items by accessing home→configuration→menus→Edit menu:

Edition du menu
Edit menu

Menu backup :

After making changes in the menu structure, it is possible to backup the changes made and reload them when needed. This function is accessible from the module configuration page through the Backup/Restore the menu table button:

Sauvegarde de menus
Menu backup

The menu backup function of MenuPar is identical in all respects to that of Dolibarr database backup. The difference is that MenuPar menu backup function backs up only llx_menu menu table and that there exists a restore button next to each backup file.
