Hello everybody,

I'm new here so be kind please :)

I put a mediawiki on my computer and I'm using the vector skin. Now, in my sidebar I would make a drop-down menu like it is on MediaWiki (when you click on support, you can see or cache the menus, help, manuel, etc). How can I do that ?

I have tested TreeAndMenu extention but it's not what I want. It's really like menu dropdown of MediaWiki Sidebar.

Thanks in advance. (Sorry for my english, I'm french)

same issue over here in Italy... the toplevels and submenus of the *-lists in 'Mediawiki:Sidebar' are displayed statically in 'vector-skin'; looking at the source there is no javascript events on the toplevel entries; is javascript to be enabled with some global setting somewhere else!?

Hi and welcome,

I too am a bit new, but have had success with the Extension called "SideBarMenu"

You WILL have to use download and install it by using Composer or ExtensionInstaller to get all the dependencies. I used Composer.


1. Copy SideBarMenu to /path/to/mediawiki/extension/

2. append "require_once( "$IP/extensions/SideBarMenu/SideBarMenu.php" );" to LocalSettings.php Should anyone know of anything better please add to the thread. 
