You can specify the following options which apply to the tree frame of the generated Website:
- Whether or not to include a tree frame (see below)
- Node font name: the name of the font of all node titles
- Node font size: the size of the font of all node titles
- Node font color: the color of the title of a node
- Node font hover color: the color of the title a node when the mouse hovers over it
- Node font selected color: the color of the title of the selected node
- Background color of the tree frame
- Background image of the tree frame
- Width of tree frame
- The name of the export directory which will contain the tree icons (by default this is 'tpicons')
Including a tree frame
By default, the box "Tree Frame is visible" is ticked, meaning that on clicking index.html to view the Web site, you will see an HTML window with at least two panes, the tree pane, the article pane (and the title pane if enabled).
If you untick the box 'Tree Frame is visible', on opening index.html in your exported Website, you will see first article in your browser. If you have chosen not to show the tree, you might want to consider including the Navigate pane
Alternatively, you have created enough hyperlinks between articles before you export the TreePad file so that it is possible to reach all articles (directly or indirectly) from the first article.
(TreePad Business Edition only)
By default TreePad X Enterprise generates a website containing both a dynamic and a static tree, but you can change this in the Website options (category: Tree), so that the resulting Website contains only one type of tree (either a static tree or a dynamic tree).
If both dynamic and static trees are exported, TreePad generates two sets of similar files (along with a number of other files):
(1) index.html and tree.html containing the dynamic tree
(2) index2.html and tree2.html containing the static tree
If you want to link directly to the static tree, you should link to index2.html
Please note that if only a dynamic or only a static tree is exported, the second set of files (index2.html and tree2.html) is never generated.
When a subtree is exported as a dynamic tree, its tree state (which nodes are expanded or collapsed) at the time of export is also preserved (however, the root node of the generated Website is always expanded).
TreePad's node icons are exported to transparent GIF files. E.g., if your TreePad file looks like this:
the exported HTML tree pane can look like this (when showing all child nodes, or when 'dynamic tree' is not enabled):
