I am new so maybe this is a strange question, but OK.

I want to use the sidemenu as a skinobject. But I don't understand how this works.

I installed it in my portal so now I can use it as a module. But if I want to use it as a skinobject I need to put extra code in my xml-file and in my skin.css. Am I right?

And after uploading this skin, the sidemenu will be visible in my portal or do I have to select the module first. Actually I don't understand the difference between using the sidemenu as a skin or as a module.

Other question: do you have an example of a xml-file with the inventua sidemenu?

Thanks and regards,

Hi Jeannine,

You are correct, to use the menu as a skin object you must put extra code in your skin.

Have a look at the section "Using SideMenu as a skin object" in the documentation page ( - and let me know if you need any more help.

Thanks Anthony,

I played around with the sidemenu and I managed to do everything I wanted. Anyhow, thanks for your help.
