Can I use a Java menu in WB?
« on: February 01, 2008, 07:33:12 PM »
I'm thinking of converting a phpnuke page to WB.  Over the years, the nuke page has evolved away from the "standard" layout phpnuke provides.  I now use a java applet for the main site menu (JDDM from tecnik.com).  People really seem to like the menu and I would like to keep it if/when I convert the site to WB.

Is this possible?

(If you like, you can view the menu on the site at www.buckeyelakeyc.c om)

Thanks, in advance, for any help and ideas,

Steve

I think you could ... but you would output with the complete tree option:

Code: [Select]
show_menu(1,0,-1,false);
Additionally you would need to change the output template to match the requirements of the Java Menu. Not to forget, somehow the values need to be passed to the menu (Haven't looked into that though).

cheers

Klaus -

JDDM calls a comma-delimited text file for its data (which I edit in MS Excel).
Generally, my updates don't require menu updates, just page updates so that would still work for me.  Ideally, if I can figure out how to make it pull from the database...  Alright too much to ask.

I'll look at how to incorporate it into a template.  I'll probably be asking for more help.  It seems like I only learn when I screw up and totally crash my site.   :-)

Thanks

Steve
