History: Menu Topics

Preview of version: 1

We need to refactor the Tiki menu system for at least two reasons:

I) The new Bootstrap responsive menues are much more sophisticated with more than one menu-item-array and different levels
The actual men-item-array from tiki-admin_modules.php simply does not at all fit to the bootstrap.css and either not to the bootstrap.js.
We either need to develop a new kind of menu, or - what I preferred, if coders agreed - we extend the existing menus to the opportunities and requirements we see with Bootstrp.

II) The actual Tiki menu system is easy to use, reliable and very good in what it can provide.
But in the end of the day it is not flexible enough, to provode us width certain new state of the art menu item effects:

Example: "Mega Menus" alike Amazon for several submenus or grafics or arbitrary text and in a menu item (nearly there with "use WikiSyntax in menus", but difficult to style and no translation of the whole menu if the preference is active).

More reasons? Just add ...
