Share Menu

For the most up-to-date documentation, please visit


The "Share Menu" plugin allows the user to copy/send/open external links to nodes (configured via properties).

Links: The URL may contain the string {nodeId} which will be replaced by the node id of the currently selected node. The URL is determined by looking at the selected node itself, all its parents from parent to root, the defaults for the node's type and the global default in this order. The first link found will be returned.

The menu item is only shown when the selected node has an external url configured.
