Subject [Roller-JIRA] Resolved: (ROL-1433) old menu tag code is throwing exceptions and generating broken links
Date Mon, 04 Jun 2007 17:18:55 GMT


Allen Gilliland resolved ROL-1433.

    Resolution: Fixed

the old menu tag code was officially EOLed in roller trunk revision 543855 and the functionality
was replaced using the new menu code.  there is this relevant note about backwards compatibility
to keep in mind ...

NOTE: this commit removes the use of 3 methods from the weblog rendering velocity context,
1) MenuModel.showAuthorMenu(), 2) OldPageHelper.showMenu(), and 3) OldPageHelper.showEditorNavBar().
 technically this could be a concern for backwards compatability, but we can pretty reasonably
expect that these methods were only called from Roller macro calls which still function properly.

it's old struts1 configuration.  the problem lies in the fact that this code uses the old
struts1 RequestUtils class to build its urls and that code cannot work without a struts1 configuration.
> the only thing still using this code is the MenuModel in the rendering code which builds
some the menus used in weblog sidebars.  the ideal fix for this problem is to rewrite the
MenuModel stuff to use something other than the old menu tag to do its work.
