[Webcom] Different menu items for local chapter pages

Hi Wolf,

I have added some content to the UK chapter pages now: http://www.osgeo.org/uk

There is a provisional set of links at the bottom of the home page that I would like to see as a menu, and they are all under the ./uk "directory", eg http://www.osgeo.org/uk/mailing_list, with the exception of two wiki pages. It would be nice to include links to those but if it's tricky that's not essential.

I will be adding a couple of extra pages, but again they will all fall under the same ./uk directory- so if you could show me how to add them to the block/menu once it's set up that would be great.

Many thanks for your help

Not exactly. A block (a menu or box) can be given some conditions (like
for instance parts of page urls) which when evaluated to true reults in
the block being displayed.

If you tell me the menu and the pages where it should show I can set it
up for you. Hopefully all those pages are under the same "directory",
but that is not mandatory.

Not to my knowledge. The current style is more or less the result of it
happening. There is an alternate theme called OSGeo2, which is less white.
