display node as text only
fiduser - 8/30/2007 at 06:28 PM

Is there a way to display a node as text only, instead of as a link? I've read in other postings that you're supposed to use "null" for that, but that doesn't work. The node still displays as a link, but the link doesn't go anywhere when clicked. I wanted to display a list of items, and when the user clicks on the plus sign next to the item a description would drop down. I'm doing something like this:

var TREE_ITEMS = [
['', 0, {'tt' : 'Window object', 'sb':'Window object'},
['Item to be described', 'http://linktogoto.com', {st:0},
['description',null]]]]

I want the "description" to be just text. Is it possible to do that with Tigra Tree Menu PRO? Thanks for your help.

With the PRO version you can assign CSS classes to each item individually (see item scope settings). Create CSS class that has contained <a ..> tags not underlined and different color and assign it to the items with the description. For the live sample see demo2 inside the distribution package.

I appreciate your help, but I'm still having trouble. I've looked and looked, and I haven't been able to find a style that will essentially make a link not be a link. I can change the color and get rid of underlining, but the text is still clickable. Is there a parameter I can use so it will just be straight text?

The text will always be within <a ..> tag. If there is no link assigned to the item the click will not do anything. You can change color, remove underline and change the cursor via the styles.
