Subject Re: Include menu action with sitemesh
Date Tue, 02 Sep 2008 01:21:23 GMT

I use S2 tags all the time in my sitemesh decorators. When I first did
it, I hadn't put much thought into it (maybe the filter won't be
available to sitemesh, the action is the decorated page, not the
decorator, etc.), I just did it and it worked. It wasn't until later
that I thought maybe it wasn't right. However, it worked fine and I have
been happily doing it since. Rather than -

<div id="menuDiv">
  <s:action name="menu" />

Why not use the <sx:div /> tag?

Just be careful that the menu action does not get decorated by Sitemesh,
otherwise the result can be pretty bizarre :)
