(DEFAULT = No css style ----------------------------------------------------------------------- (_toSpace) Converts underscores '_' to a space in directory names. (DEFAULT = Keep underscores, no conversion ----------------------------------------------------------------------- (target) set the frameset target value (DEFAULT '_self') ----------------------------------------------------------------------- DIRECTORY OPTIONS ----------------------------------------------------------------------- (dirformat) can be of type: ucwords = uppers case words (use with _toSpace) titlecase = upper case words except small words (the, is, with, etc) ucfirst = upper case first letter uppercase = all uppercase lowercase = all lowercase none = show directories as they are named in path structure (DEFAULT) ----------------------------------------------------------------------- (imagedir) sets the image directory path, plus the image type. (DEFAULT - Does not use images) You need to name your images the same as the actual directory names. ----------------------------------------------------------------------- (changeName) Directory mapping/alias.
