Splits up a list and makes it a pager scroller thingy

This is a jQuery plugin for Foswiki that implements a widget to handle long lists. It therefore splits the list and adds a pager so that it takes less screen estate overall to display all list elements. This kind of list pager comes in handy when displaying lots of navigation elements in a sidebar navigation.

Installation Instructions

You do not need to install anything in the browser to use this extension. The following instructions are for the administrator who installs the extension on the server.

Open configure, and open the "Extensions" section. "Extensions Operation and Maintenance" Tab -> "Install, Update or Remove extensions" Tab. Click the "Search for Extensions" button. Enter part of the extension name or description and press search. Select the desired extension(s) and click install. If an extension is already installed, it will not show up in the search results.

You can also install from the shell by running the extension installer as the web server user: (Be sure to run as the webserver user, not as root!)
cd /path/to/foswiki
perl tools/extension_installer <NameOfExtension> install

If you have any problems, or if the extension isn't available in configure, then you can still install manually from the command-line. See https://foswiki.org/Support/ManuallyInstallingExtensions for more help.

TIP Note you need to run configure & save at least once. This will automatically register the serial pager widget to Foswiki.
