Confluence drop down v5.4

I am trying to create a drop down menu in Confluence, on the older version we were supported by the scaffolding plug-in but now I believe we are getting errors as the plug-in doesn't work on this version.

Where do I start in creating a drop-down menu?

What is your intention on creating such a dropdown? Contentcreation/manipulation? Some navigation structures?

Hi Steve,

We are trying to build a report document with up 100+ options in some cases, so I suppose you would call it navigation structure, just not sure where to begin! I must mention we are 2 complete novices that have been thrown in the deep end to learn :)

Ok, to make it short, you then will need to write a plugin.

Read this:

and take a look on this tutorials:

In detail, you need.

  • a macro with your markup
  • a web resource module with a little javascript magic
  • a xwork action to handle the ajax request from your dropdown choice
  • a component for your service class

Or, if thats all static, you will only need the macro and components module.
