Feature Proposal: Limit Parameter for WEBLIST Variable

Motivation

The new TopMenuSkin (proposal PatternSkinWithPulldownMenuBar) shows the list of webs in the "Home" pulldown menu. This is OK if there are 20+ webs, but is unusable if there are 100+ webs. It is also a performance issue.

Description and Documentation

Add a limit="" parameter to VarWEBLIST to limit the number of webs.

Add also a overlimit="" parameter to show an alternate text if there are more webs than the limit specified.

Example

Show bullet list of up to 20 webs, and a "more" link if there are more than 20 webs:

%WEBLIST{
  format="   * [[$name.%HOMETOPIC%][$indentedname]]"
  limit="20"
  overlimit="[[%SYSTEMWEB%.SiteMap][more...]]"
}%

Discussion

Peter - this would be very useful feature for skin developers. The pull-down menu's or left/right bars need better usability/and control over the content which needs to be displayed. this feature would definitely help such requirements.
