Really cool menu system! Can you supply the images for it too, please.


I have installed the Menu{{}}Tree and it works with with [ClearCase File Provider | ClearCaseFileProvider]. I found that the changes made to Menu{{}}Tree.txt (through JSPWiki Edit.jsp) are updated in Clear{{}}Case, but not shown in the menu tree until the server is restarted. How can I make the menu tree updated immediately after the edit?

Quite nice.  For sites where you know what menu structure you want to have, and that structure is rather "long" vertically; This plugin solves your problem by dynamically managing the expansion and collapse of the menu tree.  I like it.  This should let people have more fine-grained navigation on the ~LeftMenu without having it be excessively long. --JohnV

Yes, I like it too.  Very nice work!

Interesting idea - I have friends that manage their project workbooks in Lotus Notes published to the web.  Their ability to drill down has always caused me to drool.   This moves the wiki closer to being usable for something like a project workbook where you want the structure a bit tighter than wiki pages - without restricting contributers freedom/creativity.  Thanks!

How about once you have your menu structure defined, you also can also generate a big HTML file with all the contents.  You could then load the .htm file into Microsoft Word, generate a table of contents and produce a book.  With special handling for CSS, graphics and the like it could actually be a pretty OK looking book.  And if you got yourself carried away it could have an index etc.

I am a newbie and I am have problems with this.  I am running JSPWiki on Windows XP.  The menutree.jar file is in my lib directory along with my JSPWiki.jar.  I keep getting a java.lang.Null{{}}Exception error.  Please help.

The first time you add the menu tree to the leftmenu, you may result a NullPointer Exception in the place of your MenuTree. It's saying that you need to create the MenuTree page. Then the exception will go away.

I'm using the MenuTreePlugin with the template [SmallpieceTemplate].
To make the buttons (menu-items) look nice I changed the sourcecode that
every <li> tag is embedded with a <div> tag. That way I can make some nice
css adjustments. Would you be willing to add those to the sourcecode?

I tried the plugin, but the pictures are not included and installation instructions are vague.
This kind of functionality is in my opinion really needed in JSPWiki, while current implementations are pretty buggy. For example, using {{{%%collapse}}} doesn't work correctly in Internet Explorer (it doesn't remember the settings, so it always shows a completely expanded tree) and it refreshes rather irritating in Firfox (you see it quickly expand and collapse on a page change which is pretty annoying). Second, it is mentioned that this plugin doesn't work with Firefox

Because a menutree is such a great feature to have, would it be possible to focus on a menutree core-plugin which works with all kind of browsers (IE, Firefox, Opera)? I would really like to have a correct working version of this plugin out of the box.

I tried to implement the menutree plugin,only the first node is getting dislayed.All the nodes are not present and when i clicked the first node,it is not directed to the sub nodes,it is linked with the page with the name of the first node only.Do suggest something.
We are getting the menu links,but we are not getting the image icons in menu tree plugin.
