Subject RE: ShowPageMenu oddness
Date Mon, 10 Nov 2008 11:20:41 GMT
Hi Anil,

Thanks for taking the time to reply. I added the
entry you suggested to my
file but (after a restart) this didn't update the link
text. I saw that the short name I had entered here
was reflected on the "main menu" screens (eg on the
preferences settings screens for a user's blog) so Roller
is definitely picking this value up.

Getting rid of the Navigation menu is easy, but how
do I alter what the macro generates? It's weird that
depending on what theme I am using I either
do not see this spurious link at all (eg Brushed
Metal), or, it's an extra "dead" entry (as in the screengrab
linked below, eg Rational or Carbonated) or most
annoying an extra "empty" link that refers the user
back to the Roller front page.

Any other clues where else to look would be great :)

The text of that link is normally populated with the value of the
site.shortName property from your or

Check your properties files to see if that is defined and nonempty.  If
you define it, it will display there.

You can get rid of this item by editing the showPageMenu macro
definition in weblog.vm
