Modular portal based on controller names?

eggshape,
I was planning on storing the navigation in a database. What I think I am going to go for is:

Code for gathering top navigation based on controllers
Code:
<?php

class Navigation extends Model {

        public function Find()
        {
                $this->load->helper('directory');
                $map = directory_map('system/application/controllers/');
                $available = array();
                foreach ($map as $controller) {
                        if (substr($controller, -4) == '.php') {
include_once('system/application/controllers/'.$controller);
$methods = get_class_methods(substr(ucfirst($controller), 0, -4));

if (in_array('activate', $methods) && in_array('deactivate', $methods)) {
                                $available[] = ucfirst(substr($controller, 0, -4));
}
                        }
                }
                return $available;
        }
}

?>

Setting up a "non modular" controller called Settings in which the above code would be ran in the index() to populate a table such as:
Employees Activate | Deactivate
Computers Activate | Deactivate
Helpdesk Activate | Deactivate

The above code would only be ran on rare occasions on a settings page. The Activate | Deactivate would be links to the selected activate() and deactivate() in the usual CodeIgniter fashion.

(The following is what you basically stated above eggshape)

The activate() function purpose:
1. Insert controller name and sub navigation into a navigation table which would be queried to populate the navigation
2. Create any necessary tables for dealing with the "module"

The deactivate() function purpose:
1. Remove controller name and sub navigation into a navigation table
2. Remove any tables created for the "module"

I think I finally have some solid ideas to work with here. Just time to play some MP3's or turn on the radio and get crunching on some code. Smile
