To Do List Known Issues

Cannot Assign User to To Do List item

When you first install the module, I wouldn't be surprised if you'd want to create a To Do List item right away and then assign the task to one or more users.

It won't work.

Before users can be assigned a To Do List item, you must give them permission to be assigned to such an item. This is done in the usual permission place: Administer » User management » Permissions. You may also want to create a new role of people who deal with To Do List items.

Actually, the To Do List module comes with many permissions so you may want to ...

Handling of Pop-up Windows by SimpleMenu

Feature

By default, SimpleMenu is not shown on pop-up windows. There is a flag in the SimpleMenu settings that can be unchecked to avoid this side effect. The pop-up capability is often detected when you open a new tab from the current window. It will depend on the browser and the link being clicked1.

Quick Fix

When the menu is only used by the administrators, it is possible to simply open a new tab and copy and paste the URL from the existing window with the missing menu to the ...

Similar to Swap + String Less Than although not exactly the same.

It checks whether the second string is greater than the first and return the Boolean result on the stack.1

Get URL2

Action Stack: 
pop 2 (s)
Action Operation:

s2 := pop();
s1.load(s2, f_method);
Action Flash Version:

Pop two strings, the URL (s2) and the target name (s1).

All the usual HTML target names seem to be supported (_top, _blank, <frame name>, etc.) You can also use the special internal names _level0 to _level10. _level0 is the current movie. Other levels, I'm still not too sure how these can be used.

Get URL

SWF Action

Action Structure: 
string   f_url;
string   f_target;

Action Operation: 
f_target.load(f_url);
Action Flash Version:

Load the specified URL in the specified target window.

When the target is set as "_level0", the current SWF file is replaced by the file specified in the f_url field. The name in the f_url field should be a proper SWF file or the area will simply become black.

When the target is set as "_level1", something special is supposed to happen. I still don't know what it is...
Also the effect of _level1 + an empty URL is ... (to remove level1?)
