SimpleMenu Known Issues

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

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.

Discuss This! module Known Issues

The module works and is secure, however, there are problems difficult to circumvent. The following lists them. If you can help fixing some them, you'll be more than welcome!

Reordering the Comments on your Node

It is possible to reorder the node fields using the CCK module. If the Discuss This! comments do not appear exactly where you'd expect them to be, try using the the CCK module:

  1. Download the CCK module
  2. Install the CCK module
  3. Go to Administer » Content management » Content types
  4. Click on Manage content fields next to the node type you are ...

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

Demote (positive) or promote (negative) the headers found in the output before inserting it into your node.

This is useful if you want to include a complete node that has an H1 title, H2 sub-titles, etc. and make these sub-titles of your current page, maybe starting at H3 (i.e. using "... demote=2; ..." in your tag.)

By default, the value of this parameter is expected to be 1. To change the value use the following syntax:

   demote=<integer>;

The integer can be negative, in which case it promotes the headers (i.e. H3 can be changed to H1 using "... demote=-2;

With

SWF Action

The variable references within the following f_size bytes of action are taken as names of members of the specified object o1. When no member of that name is available in that object, the previous With, or the corresponding global variable is queried. This is similar to the Pascal language with instruction or to the Set Target (dynamic) for movies.

Pops one item and transform it into a string.

For strings, this action has no effect.

For numbers, it works as expected, it transforms them in a string (see the sprintf(3C) manual pages).

For a user defined object, the method named toString() is called.

This is similar to a Cast Object operation, although it is available in version 5 and obviously it only works for strings. It is most certainly preferable to use a Cast Object operation since version 7.
