Hi everybody,

I would like to have one menu on home page and another complety different menu on my-new-plugin page.

How can I build this?

Do you mean the additional menu like the Forum adds to the top left here at geeklog.net or a complete substitution?

So essentially you want your plugin to display it's own set of left or right blocks sort of like a topic?

What I would like to make is a complete substitution of the menu elements.

On my front page my menu could be :

* Contribute
* Downloads
* My cool plugin
* Links
* Polls
* Directory

And I would like on my cool plugin page :

* Trees
* Flowers
* Tools
* Fields

use jquery for content substitution:
PHP Formatted Code

var myMenuHTML = '<ul class="my-new-menu"><li> Trees</li><li>Flowers</li><li>Tools</li><li>Fields</li></ul>';
$('#my_normal_menu_element').html(myMenuHTML);
 


or prepend
PHP Formatted Code

var myMenuHTML = '<ul class="my-new-menu"><li> Trees</li><li>Flowers</li><li>Tools</li><li>Fields</li></ul>';
$('#my_normal_menu_element').prepend(myMenuHTML);
 

or append
PHP Formatted Code

var myMenuHTML = '<ul class="my-new-menu"><li> Trees</li><li>Flowers</li><li>Tools</li><li>Fields</li></ul>';
$('#my_normal_menu_element').append(myMenuHTML);

Not sure if this will be useful to you, but the alternative to a JS solution is to hack into core. You can insert the below code into lib-common.php (at line 592 in geeklog 1.7.2).

PHP Formatted Code
if (true) {
    $_CONF['menu_elements'] = array('plugins');
    $plugin_menu = array('birds' => $_CONF['site_url'] . '/birds/index.html',
                         'bees'  => $_CONF['site_url'] . '/bees/index.html');
}


Of course, you will need to replace the "always true" condition with something that will tell you whether you are on your cool plugin's page or not.

Thank you for the two ways. I like both.

@ Rouslan : As I don't want to hack the core, I could tell to my plugin to display the normal menu when user is not on the "very cool plugin" page and display the second one when user is on the plugin pages.

I also see another way, I could create the first menu in a staticpage on frontpage, and use a second menu on plugin page.

Thanks,

One of the next features I plan to work on for Geeklog 1.8.1 is the ability to assign a plugin item a topic. This means when this item is displayed it will take on the characteristics of the topic including the blocks. This also means you will have some more control over the menu items as I plan to update the staticpage plugin to support this (ie a staticpage belonging to the News Topic would only display it's menu item if the visitor was on a page assigned to the same topic).

Very good news if a plugin can have more control on the menu and block elements. :shakehands:

Have you considered reading the forum code and learning how to do using the existing codebase? There are features to the sideblocks that I think only the forum makes use of. But that doesn't mean other plugin can't use it. It's just not well documented.
