I'm using the map directive to build dynamic navigation menus, and it's working really nicely!
However on some pages, each nested item each get wrapped in a full set of
<ul> tags. This doesn't actually hurt anything, but it's does it inconsistently which seems like a bug. I don't like it because it puts extra vertical spacing into my menu bar.
Here's what I expect it to look like:
<div class="map"> <ul> <li><span class="selflink">Archives</span> <ul> <li><a href="./2010/" class="mapitem">2010</a></li> <li><a href="./2011/" class="mapitem">2011</a></li> </ul> </li> </ul> </div>
And here's what it's actually doing:
<div class="map"> <ul> <li><span class="selflink">Archives</span> <ul> <li><a href="./2010/" class="mapitem">2010</a></li> </ul> <ul> <li><a href="./2011/" class="mapitem">2011</a></li> </ul> </li> </ul> </div>
I've tried to replicate the problem on this site and cannot, I'm not sure if that's because of exactly how I'm using map or if there's something different with my site. I just upgraded ikiwiki to the latest Debian unstable as well as most of the required Perl modules and nothing changed.
If you look at this page on my site (getsource is enabled) you can see it working as expected in the main page and not working in the side bar.
But it also doesn't work on the sitemap page: http://adam.shand.net/ikidev/site/map/
This might be really simple, but I've been staring at it too long and it only looks like a bug to me. Any suggestions would be gratefully accepted. -- AdamShand
Okay, I think I've figured this out, it looks like ikiwiki behaves differently depending on the level of heirarchy. I'll post the details once I'm sure. -- AdamShand
I managed to replicate the issue on my ikiwiki, and I believe it is a bug. The current upstream logic for going up/down by a level opens (and closes) the unnecessary lists that you are seeing. Although the resulting markup is semantically correct, it has superflous stuff that introduces whitespace issues at the very least.
