JQueryMenuSkin

A functional skin that provides a customisable menu navigation system based on the JQuery Superfish plugin.

Overview

JQueryMenuSkin is a simple JQuery-based skin which utilises the Superfish menu plugin (which is supplied with the JQueryPlugin extension) to provide an alternative menu-based navigation system for Foswiki users.

This lightweight skin is designed to run on top of the default Pattern skin. (See Settings section below for details)

Installation

Note: You do not need to install anything on the browser to use this skin. The following instructions are for the administrator who installs the skin on the server where Foswiki is running.

Settings

To activate the skin you can use the following settings just add them to Main.SitePreferences, WebPreferences, or your personal page.

The minimal requirement to use the skin is to set your SKIN definition to include jqmenu as shown: (Order is important!)
      * Set SKIN = jqmenu,pattern

Typically this skin is used where the Web Left Bar is hidden. You should set the following in the same location as you defined the SKIN setting above if you wish to hide the (details of how to do this can be found here: PatternSkinCssCookbookNoLeftBar)

Customisation

In order to be able to safely upgrade this skin it is recommended that you define your own menu by copying the topic System.JQueryMenuSkinBarDefault to a new topic of your preference. You can define the name of the topic using a Preference setting in Main.SitePreferences, WebPreferences, or your personal home topic as follows:

   * Set JQUERYMENUSKINBAR = %USERSWEB%.MyMenuBar

IDEA! WYSIWYG editing should be disabled on your personalised topic to ensure the menu does not get corrupted. You can do this as follows in your customised menu topic: (See TinyMCEPlugin for full details)

   * Set TINYMCEPLUGIN_DISABLE = 1

CSS Styling

You can also customise the CSS applied to the menu by copying the default menu.css file http://foswiki.org/pub/System/JQueryMenuSkinBarDefault/menu.css and attaching it to your customised menu topic as follows:

   * Set JQUERYMENUSKINCSS = %PUBURLPATH%/%USERSWEB%/MyMenuBar/menu.css

You can also simply overwrite CSS for the default menu definition JQueryMenuSkinBarDefault with the above setting.

Installation Instructions

You do not need to install anything in the browser to use this extension. The following instructions are for the administrator who installs the extension on the server.

Open configure, and open the "Extensions" section. Use "Find More Extensions" to get a list of available extensions. Select "Install".

If you have any problems, or if the extension isn't available in configure, then you can still install manually from the command-line. See http://foswiki.org/Support/ManuallyInstallingExtensions for more help.
