Marc,

I'll try and answer some of your qestions the best I can, but I'm not a developer so don't take them as the absolute word.

is the navigation depth limited to 4 levels?

This currently seems to be the case. I haven't seen anywhere where they are planning more levels.

is there a breadcrumb function?

Not that I've seen; however, it's rather easy to put one into a template. There are many js and php tutorials on the web for that. 

how do i make my own menu template? 

Are you talking automated? I don't know that because I don't know php well enough. If you are talking hard coded then just make a list item and use CSS--check out http://www.dynamicdrive.com/style/csslibrary/

i think, custom extras should have their own folder in the theme folder. is this possible?

It depends on what you mean. If you are talking about something like WordPress 3.0 came out with then no that I don't believe is currently possible. Of course you can always put php, js, css, etc, into their own folder and call them as needed. 

where is the template for the menu loop?

Check out the "Documentation Wiki:" http://docs.gpeasy.com/index.php/main

You'll find some info about themes and the output functions for there. 

Hopefully one of the brighter gpEasy users will add more info to your questions.

It's currently not possible to create your own menu template cause it's hardcoded.

But it's only a unordered list and with some CSS / Javascript it should not be difficult to create dropdown menus and so on ...

thank you for the kind support.

well, the 4 level limit is critical for me. i hope there is a workaround. any ideas?

if the menuloop html is hardcoded, i have to customize the source. not so elegant :-(

ideas: all customizing of templates should be located in the themes. like:

extra content: there should be a folder "extras" in the themes. the extras folder in the root should only contain the base extras.

same for the menu loop. it should have its own "extra" file. like the header extra. ideally the header includes the menu_loop extra.

 

another question: are the templates, shown as button in the textedit box, extensible? like creating custom ones?

 

maybe some of my questions are realised int the alpha/beta releases?

sorry, but i need quick answers, because i have to decide for the right system today.

 

best regards,

marc

Your questions points to a very difficult direction - if I've understand Josh right he want "only" a very easy to use CMS. Questions like yours are a lot more professional related.

We've discuss it last time ... maybe there will come a special permissions to add some pro features :/ .

For breadcrumbs you can use a solution like this
