Web Sidebar Plugin

Version 6

    Summary

    The Web Sidebar Plugin that will house a series of Sidebar-style interfaces for use inside other tools, such as Outlook Express, Notes, or a basic IFRAME.

     

    In it's initial state, this isn't my best plugin..but it may be helpful for some people....hence the reason I'm posting it.  I plan to add some more features in the coming months with the new version of Jive that will make this a pretty handy.

     

    Note: If your are using Lotus Notes, and plan to use the Lotus Notes Widget Container ... be aware that the Notes Widget does not honor the Client's Browser preference...and spawns new windows inside the embedded Notes Browser.  You can read more information about the observed behavior here.
