Looks ok to me.

Nice to see that you’ve already contributed a nice feature - adding dynamic menu entries to the tracker context menu. A couple of questions:

Will the entries also appear in the file menu, or only in the right click context menu?

Is it possible to add icons to the new menu items (I guess yes)?

As I understand it, this is different to the current “Add-ons” menu because your sub menu can have as many entries and sub-menus as you like, rather than just launching an add-on?

Look forward to more updates from you!

Both are comments are true :smile: If you see the post directly from the blog url, the images shows correctly. But if you expand the first post, the images are broken.


#6

True.
The expanded version have different URLs:

Notice the dot after the TLD.

Yes they will appear both places

Yes, I’ll keep this in mind for further improvements.[quote=“Munchausen, post:4, topic:6827”]

The addon can do both simultaneously. Have it’s entry in current “Add-ons” menu as well as provide dynamic submenu with any entries.
