The URL can be specified as a function of the node, group, or link that is right-clicked over. To create custom menu items, create a server-side file /u/wandl/data/custom/menuitems.txt. This file should be saved as Unicode UTF-16 format. Each line should have two comma-separated items:

where menuItem is substituted with the text that you will see in the right-click popup menu and URLtoView is the URL that the browser will request. A specific value can be inserted into the URL depending upon the node, link, or group that is right-clicked over.
