[AJAX-TreeMenu] ezodcsm extension discussion

Wednesday 02 November 2005 10:25:12 am - 93 replies

The "eZ On Demand Contenstructurmenu" (ezodcsm) extension helps you to work with the tree menu in the admin interface even if you have lot's of objects in your content tree.

You can find more information about it here:

This is the place were you can discuss about it, post bugs, make suggestions, post translations, etc.

Feel free to try out this extension, as it won't harm your eZ publish installation - and "share your information" with the community...

Ok, i've added the code on another branch:

Have a play!

As our support will show virtual years and months it will only activate for folders which are sorted by either the published or modified date. We think this makes sense happy.gif Emoticon

It will work on 3.7 but notices are shown so disable these in index.php. Someone could make a branch to remove the few notices that appear for a pure 3.7+ version happy.gif Emoticon This version works for 3.6+ if notices are disabled.

ShowClasses/HideClasses does work happy.gif Emoticon

If there are issues please let us know.

Hi Paul,

changing the structure in svn is just fine with me.

I'll take a look to our contribution soon!!!

Greetings, Daniel.

I've just added a new tag for the 1.0.7 release:

This should allow those who need the current release to fetch if they need.

There is no menu when i add another location to node (when i browse for new location) on ezp3.6.6

--- UDPATED (18.04.2006) ---

Is there any option to increase timeout, because im my case, when i'm unfonding some folders give me "Unable to expand menu. Remote server error".
I think that is a timeout problem, because it runs really well in smaller structures.

------ UPDATE ----

i forgot to clear cache in this website after activare this extension, so this was my fault.

Hi Paul

I have installed it from svn on 3.8.0rc1 and I don't see tree anymore?!
Is it supposed to work on 3.8.0 or I just have to wait for new release? blunk.gif Emoticon

Best regards,

If some users have trouble using the menu in the sense of they only see a small white space below the menu when they click on the [+] sign, it can be solved by disabling template debug and list of used templates options happy.gif Emoticon

I havent tried with 3.8 yet happy.gif Emoticon Are there any errors being reported in the debug?

Wednesday 19 April 2006 10:53:03 am

Hi Paul

No errors in debug just some warnings about missing translation happy.gif Emoticon


Wednesday 19 April 2006 12:59:47 pm

I'll try to take a look later today happy.gif Emoticon

Which version of the menu are you using?

I've checked with 3.8 beta2 and it works as expected. I used the virtual_folders branch to test with.

One thing to watch out for is that with 3.8 in settings/contentstructuremenu.ini the default items shown in the menu are:


which is a weird choice to me.

this might explain why you dont see any entries in the menu.

Thanks a lot for this hint!
Can this be fixed? It's a weird and unexpected dependency that breaks this otherwise great extension.

Could you provide steps to allow this issue to be reproduced?

I've just tried and the template debug view explodes all templates which i feel is to be expected. However, i think you must be speaking about something else.

The menu won't show at all in admin/content/browse, e.g. when browsing for adding a related object during edit.
I get an error and a warning:

Error: eZTemplate
No such attribute for array(7): node_id
Choose one of following: navigation_part, path, content, is_default_navigation_part, ui_context, ui_component, uri
Warning: PHP
Undefined variable:  ezcst_unfolded_node_list in D:\WWW\ezpublish\extension\ezodcsm\modules\odcsm\ezodcsmfunctioncollection.php on line 48

Which version of the menu are you using?

Thursday 20 April 2006 12:20:16 pm

ezpublish 3.7.4
ezodcsm 1.07

Would you able to try the version(s) in svn? The trunk and 'virtual_folders' branch have improvements.

Thursday 20 April 2006 12:39:14 pm

I am a bit confused as to what the difference is between the different branches on svn. Can anyone explain which is what?

Thursday 20 April 2006 12:50:22 pm

The virtual_folders branch contains the improvements David wrote about on the 5th April in this thread. That branch also includes the 1.0.8 changes that are in the trunk.

The trunk contains the 1.0.8 changes.

You do need to read through this thread to see whats what happy.gif Emoticon
