Data type



This will make a link to the root-level of a website:

<a href="?id={0}"> | </a>


<.. {x}.> | </...>

{x}; x is an integer (0-9) and points to a key in the PHP array rootLine. The key is equal to the level the current page is on measured relatively to the root of the website.

If the key exists the uid of the level that key pointed to is inserted instead of {x}.

Thus we can insert page_ids from previous levels.
