Sets which implementation of the tree menu that should be used.





This directive can be used to switch between the original and the new implementation of the tree menu. If you have a large site with many nodes, make sure that this switch is enabled for your administration siteaccess; it will boost the performance of the tree menu and eliminate unoptimized usage of network bandwidth by reducing the amount of traffic involved.

The dynamic tree menu has been introduced in eZ Publish 3.10. It makes use of AJAX technology, which is supported by all modern browsers. The new implementation makes it possible to avoid problems with the tree menu on sites that have huge amount of nodes. Unlike the original implementation, instead of fetching information about the whole content structure tree for every page that is requested, the new one generates menu structures on the fly. The amount of data transferred between the client and the server is minimized. Since the tree menu structure is cached in the browser, only necessary information is transferred through the network.

Refer to the specifications for more information about this feature.
