Dynamic menus is a gadget I wrote because I wanted a more condensed MediaWiki skin that focuses 100 % on the content. All of the menus have been moved from the sidebar to the top of the page, where they are dropdowns; this means that you hover a menu headline to see the actual menu. Virtually all of the interface surrounding articles has been moved to the top 60 pixels of the page – freeing the rest for the content. The gadget is an extension of the Modern skin – it will not work properly in other skins.
The gadget is extremely easy to adapt to other wikis. All you need to do to adapt it for your wiki is the change a few variables, depending on the number of submenus (called portlets in the source code) and their IDs, and you're good to go. The source code of the gadget includes instructions on how to adapt it.
The gadget is currently at v1.1.4. If you have any comments, suggestions or bugs to report for it, post them at this page's talk page.
