custom snippet solution is obvious but not elegant
Does anybody know why it was working on 1.0.4 and doesn't on 1.0.5?
Shouldn't have been working on 1.0.4 :p
It's been this way for as long as I can remember.
I just upgraded and it broke my sidebar menus, Main menu is fine.
Maybe I should not have done this... I wanted images and not text for my links in a couple sidebar menus - so i put an image tag into the manager's "menu title" box instead of text and it worked...
until I upgraded Wayfinder. The new wayfinder (and this maybe a good thing I suppose) took the <, > and " (and maybe others) and converted them to their entities such as < and this of course printed out my image tag code and did not display the image.
Quick fix - I took the code produced, dropped it into BBEdit, converted the entities back to text, and replaced 2 wayfinder calls with hard coded ul lists. And so it may remain!
Another note - I also tried the uninstall/restore and uninstall/preserve features and neither took me back to my older version of wayfinder, maybe I'm missing something on how to do it. Sure would be nice to have a working easy way to undo something like this.
Revo 2.07 Wayfinder 2.1.3
Couldn't you just put the image path in the menu title field, and in the rowItemTpl have the img tags using the placeholder to insert the image path?
Actually, unless these side menus are multi-level, I wouldn't use Wayfinder for them at all. I would use Ditto (for Evo) or getResources for Revo, and use image-type TVs for the images.
Or use Wayfinder, but use a block of CSS in the template head and use TVs to specify the background image for the top-level links if it's a multi-level menu. That way you would improve accessibility for the menu as well. Use a large text-indent value in the CSS to move the text off the screen for the links; the text is still available for screen readers and other browsers that don't use CSS, but for 99.9% of your visitors the link will just show the image.
They are multi-level menus.
I was thinking about background images - I will try the background image in a TV and I like the improvement in accessibility - thanks for the ideas
With revo 2.08 and wayfinder 2.3 the broken menus I mentioned above are now 'unbroken'
