SimpleMenu Disappears

There following are a few of the main reasons why SimpleMenu disappears.

Pop-up Windows

By default, SimpleMenu wants to hide itself in pop-up windows. This is a feature.

The reason is that many websites will open pop-up windows for all kinds of extra-features such as uploading an image or printing some description of an image or the definition of a word or product.

These windows should not include the SimpleMenu bar.

There is a dedicated page giving several different ways to fix this problem on your website.

Handling of Pop-up Windows by SimpleMenu

Feature

Insert Node Parameter: cckteaser (6-1.3)

The CCK parameter let you insert one of your CCK field in full. This parameter, cckteaser, let you insert the teaser of your CCK field.

This feature uses the teaser flag of the CCK module in order to insert the teaser data. This means only the field_<name> fields make the distinction between cck=... and cckteaser=..., the other fields simply ignores the difference.

For more information on the CCK field names that are supported, check the Insert Node Parameter: cck (6-1.2) page.

 

IMPORTANT NOTE

Note that the parameter value ends with a semi-colon! Do not include quotes

Insert Node Parameter: repeat (6-1.2) [no content]

The repeat keyword is used to repeat the filtering on the data just inserted. This is particularly useful with the asterisk name or on nodes that do not otherwise include a format that transforms the tags included in themselves.

This let you create nodes that are like macros.

Note that the macro can itself include a repeat in one of its Insert Node tags.1

Insert Node Parameter: plain (6-1.2) [no content]

The plain keyword is used to avoid having the content being inserted put inside a tag. By default, the content is inserted inside a <span> or a <div> tag (<span> is used if the output does not include <div>, <p> and other such tags.)

Although one could overload the theme_InsertNode_node() theme function, it is at times practical to be able to use both methods.

The plain keyword does not otherwise generate any output.

This keyword primary use is for adding CCK parameters inside HTML code as proposed by one of our users (see here):
