This is an example Grails site testing extlinkchoice plugin ver 0.5

To run this project you will need grails 2.3.4

from command line: (Linux)


export JAVA_HOME=/usr/lib/jvm/java-6-openjdk-i386/jre/   

The java home will probably be different find out where your JRE folder is and do as above..

Unsure but I have multiple grails installed on my desktop so to ensure it is the right version run:

alias grails=/home/user/Downloads/springsource/grails-2.3.4/bin/grails

This is my path to grails 2.2.3 binary file

Download this app and run:

grails run-app

Link Open type: - (_same) -

Same Window
New Window
Multiple Choice

Grails Site Grails INFO Site GITHUB

The link Choice Chooser is a drop down menu opened when clicked, it will give a list of options:

If Modal pop-up selected any links clicked will pop up

Same window takes over current window

New Window is as it says

Multiple choice - will give extra options as you hover over the links, clicking actual like will do pop up, and new tab or same window are other drop down options

Something went wrong with that request. Please try again.
