I have discussed this issue with Alain Moran and thought it might be helpful to bring it to the larger community.
We are using pagetree2 in the LSB and for the most part it works great. However, we have a growing discussion forum with 64 entries. The expanded entry for this forum in the LSB runs very long down the page when expanded, i.e. when any forum topic is opened, and isn't very useful. I don't want to remove the tree when displaying a big forum because the tree is still useful for navigating to other pages, especially after one closes down the expanded display for the forum.
Does anyone have any workarounds for this inconvenient display situation?
I don't know what is possible under these circumstances. I have some ideas, all of which may be out of reach. I had thought of a pagination function as in the forum macro. Another possibility would be to set initialDepth=1 for big or otherwise selected forums while all other pages would be set to initialDepth=3. Perhaps one could have a setting that kept selected sections of the hierarchy from being expanded at all.
I suppose I might be asking too much while our users would like me to come up with some improved situation.
