I am in a bit of a quandary about how to do this so would appreciated
Lets say I have a simple Radiant based site. Pages with sub-pages etc
etc. All very simple.
However the user wants the navigation menu to be scrollable using little
buttons Like the following
NAV1 - NAV2- NAV3- NAV4 <>
Clicking the > button would change the nav to
NAV5 - NAV6- NAV7- NAV8 <>
and so on using AJAX to update the navigation menu. This navigation menu
is going to be on the one layout this site will use so all the pages
will have it without exception. Now, how can I do this? Bearing in mind
1. If I am on the page specified by NAV5 then the navigation menu should
read NAV5 - NAV6- NAV7- NAV8 (Current page + 4 )
2. The navigation menu replacement needs to be AJAX but the loading of
the main pages doesn't HAVE to be (Although it can be if it makes things
My thoughts so far.
Create a custom controller to handle AJAX requests and update the
Custom controller uses the session to keep track of what should be
displayed in the navigation menu.
When a page is rendered ... well, this is where I get stuck. How can I
make the navigation bar display the current page + 4 based using only
the tags available in Radius.
All this is a bit tricky to explain. I will try and get a site up so you
can see the layout in question as it might make things easier. In the
meantime if anyone has any ideas about this I would appreciate a second
set of neurons looking at the issue.
