WP-dTree plugin

Print Friendly

Dynamic tree-widgets to replace the standard archives, categories, pages and link lists.

This plugin provides?dynamic navigation trees?to replace the standard archives, categories, pages and link lists. They’re widgets so you can setup?the awesome tree navigation?with drag & drop ease, but it also exposes several?new template tags?for developers.

WP-dTree 4.0 is a complete re-write, bringing the plugin up to speed with the much matured WordPress 3 API. The overhaul has made WP-dTree significantly more sane and robust; it supports multiple widget instances, “foreign” characters, is more in tune with your themes, plays nice with translators and offers true fallbacks for those who surf without JavaScript.

If you value?my plugins?and want to motivate further development – pleasehelp me out?by?downloading and installing DropBox?from my refferal link. It’s a cross-plattform application to sync your files online and across computers. A 2GB account is free and my refferal earns you a 250MB bonus!


For some users the installation procedure left WP-dTree without a default configuration. If after installing and activating the widget all you get is?a wierd string of code, just go to Settings -> WP-dTree and hit “Update settings”.
