CategoryTree Extesnion: Can it be used with GuMax?

Postby DaveW. » October 23rd, 2008, 11:29 am

I've been attempting to use the Category tree extension with the Gumax skin. It works great in the main pages, but I'm attempting to add it to the sidebar for navigation purposes.

The extensions doc says that it works with monobook, modern, etc. but does not work with the standard, nostaligia styled skins.

I have set up the code correctly and it does in fact work well with monobook in my wiki. It doesn't work with GuMaxV, however, which is the skin I really want to use. Is there a way to setup GuMaxV to allow this extension to work in the sidebar?

Thanks!

This extension needs add javascript into the skin, did you add that in GuMaxV.php?

ok... so I really hate to be a complete noob, but I've spent the morning trying to figure out how to add javascript support into the gumax skin. I assume it's support for java that needs to be added and not support for that specific applet.

I tried to compare the gumax php to the monobook php and found that monobook was using jsvarurl, userjs, and userjsprev. However I found out that the gumax php encompasses those as well so those obviously aren't the additions I need to make. Is it something as simple as enabling ajax in the skin's php file like I did in local setting? I didn't see that setup in monobook, but I'll be happy to put it in there.

Thanks again!

I think you can integrate Ajax into the skin, depends on what you want ... :)

Hi Paul,
I used GUmaxdd skin for my wiki and I loved its look, perfectly serves my purpose.
Now, I am trying to add a CategoryTree to the sidebar. Spent like a day on this but, no luck.
Please, provide a brief talk on the issues that needs to be taken care off in order to enable category tree on sidebar.

Thanks,
Madhu.

GuMaxDD skin doesn't have side menu by default, it's all in top menus.

If you need side menu for GuMaxDD, then you need to customize GuMaxDD....
