MultiLink Syndicator
Advanced Usage

The following examples demonstrate how to use advanced features of the MultiLink Syndicator. These features allow you to add a MultiLink dropdown menu to any arbitrary text or image on your HTML page.

By default, the syndicator will use the title associated with the DOI as the hypertext label. However, you can specify your own text or image by following these instructions:

Specify custom text:

Insert arbitrary text into the query string parameter "text" below to specify your custom link label (don't forget to URL-encode the text):

This example adds the MultiLink for DOI:10.1220/pr17 to the label "My text": My text

Specify an image:

Insert your image URL into the query string parameter "image" below to specify your custom image

This example adds the MultiLink for DOI:10.1220/pr17 to the specified image:

Specify custom menu colors:

You can specify the dropdown menu colors by using the "hiermenusConfig" parameter. You can specify colors for font (both for mouseover and mouseout), background (both for mouseover and mouseout), border, and separator. An example would be: hiermenusConfig=[,,,"black","gray","lightblue","lightgreen","yellow","#FF0000"]. [Note: this string must be URL encoded as shown below.]

This example shows the MultiLink for DOI:10.1220/pr17 with custom colors: DOI with absurd colors
