Adding Icons to the Left bar

This isn't anything brilliant or innovative or difficult, but I found it helped my users.

In %PUBPATH%/Twiki/TWikiDocGraphics there are a collection of icons each 16 px x 16 px.

I started by enhancing the list of webs in the left bar by adidng a folder icon. This was enough of a cue to the users that I didn't have to keep explaining what a web was.

So I added the icons for index, statistics, search etc. Simple, but the users liked it.

The example attached uses the %LOGON_OR_WELCOME% from the SessionPlugin, which technique also reduced a lot of end user confusion (aka "how do I log on?").

You could use the RenderListPlugin too.

Quite true, and syntactically shorter.

But some sites may not want the overhead of another plugin.
