Get the value of the title attribute.

How can I use this addMenu in one of my templates? I've tried 
tal:repeat="navItem context/@@view_get_menu/add_content" and 
tal:repeat="navItem context/@@view_get_menu/zope.app.container.add"
Both returned always a empty list.

I've used the ZPT as a template of a auto generated view of the contents of a 
standard folder.

The zmi_actions menu, used as cross-check returns the excepted items.

I've a working addForm in the same layer like the template:

        label="Add CSLink"
        title="Adds a CSLink"
and a addMenuItem

        title="The label that'll appear in the menu"
        permission="zope.Public" />

I've also rights too add objects.
Why can I specify a menu attribute in the addform directive but not in the 

I also don't want to have all objects that can be added to a folder but only 
certain objects. Is there any possibility to constrain this, for example 
based on the python path?
