Menupilator for RapidWeaver

When used to saying 'manipulate', 'menupilate' is a bit of a mouthful, but Menupilator is the name the latest stack from Marathia's stacks. Jeroen has a thing for allowing you to manipulate your site's navigation and Menupilator is the fourth of his stacks that can alter menu functions.

Annoying fact: Your website's 'Home' button will usually reload your home page if clicked when you are already on the home page.The same will happen if you click on the link of any page that you are already on. Confusing, or what? Menupilator can deactivate the 'Home' link and any other link on your site to avoid confusion.
Does your client want you to add a new page to an already bursting navigation bar? You could shorten the page titles in the page settings to make room for another menu item, but this might damage SEO results. You could, however, shorten the page titles using Menupilator and leave the SEO results intact (I just altered a page title from "Wir über uns" to "About Us" with three mouse clicks).

If you need to highlight a specific menu item e.g. so that a visitor immediately sees how to contact you, Menupilator can quickly do the job. Menupilator can also trigger a lightbox instead of opening a new page. It could also trigger a dropdown that offers different language versions of your site.

Here's a list of everything the new stack can do. Menupilator comes in handy when you want to:

  • put extra emphasis on one ore more menu items (by changing their style and/or color)
  • disable a menu item (e.g. to turn it into a placeholder for submenu items)
  • make a menu item do something that cannot be defined by RapidWeaver (trigger a lightbox, a shopping cart etc.)
  • link a menu item to the corresponding page in another language
  • make a menu item behave differently on one (or some) page(s) only
  • remove a menu item on one (or some) page(s) only
  • make a more colourful menu

Note: Menupilator combines the functionality of the NoLink, the NoCurrent and the Lang­Menu stacks from Marathia's stacks, but adds functionality not in included with any of of those stacks.

Damn, I recently purchased a stack specifically to alter a menu's function. If only Menupilator had been around then, it's much more flexible.
