Q: Everything works perfectly on Firefox, nothing works on IE6.

No rollovers, no drop downs.


A: You should the following parameters

  var menuBorderWidth="0";
  var itemBorderWidth="0";

These parameters cannot be empty.


Q: I will build menu for several books’ Contents, each book is more than 100 lines and has links. I think if all the books’ contents in 1 *.JS file then it is TOO LOONG!!.
Can I break it down to 1 book for 1*.JS ? How?


A: You cannot divide your menuItems parameter.
You can only use one .js file for your menu parameters and the other.js file for your menuItems = [...];

But you can do it in two ways.

1) You can try to use several menus on the one page, for example:
param.js // file with menu parameters (all parameters before menuItems = [...];)
menu1.js // menuItems for "AC-DC", "ANLOG"
menu2.js // menuItems for "DIGITAL", "WinXP"
menu3.js // menuItems for "MS-Word", "MS-Excel"
In these menu files you should write
menuItems = [
...
];
dm_init();

Then you should install your menu in the following way

<script type="text/javascript" src="param.js"></script>
<table>
...
<script type="text/javascript" src="menu1.js"></script>
...
<script type="text/javascript" src="menu2.js"></script>
...
<script type="text/javascript" src="menu3.js"></script>

But it will be easier to use vertical menu in such case
  var isHorizontal=0;
  var smColumns=1;

2) You can also try to add some code, see the attached example.

In the first file (@MY books (Multiple Col.js) I write menuItems for the first item "AC-DC".
Notice that you should delete comma at the end of the last item
  var menuItems = [

["AC-DC","", , , , , , , , ],
 ["[email protected]","testlink.htm", , , , , , , , ],
...
 ["[email protected]","", , , , , , , , ],
   ["||CH02","", , , , , , , , ],
   ["||CH01","", , , , , , , , ] // delete comma at the end of the last item

];

In the second file (@MY books (1.js) you should write
menuItems = menuItems.concat(

[

["ANLOG","", , , , , , , , ],
 ["[email protected]","", , , , , , , , ],
 ["[email protected]","", , , , , , , , ],
 ["[email protected]","", , , , , , , , ] // delete comma at the end of the last item

]
);

In the third file (@MY books (2.js) you should write
menuItems = menuItems.concat(

[

["DIGITAL","", , , , , , , , ],
 ["|Item 1332","", , , , , , , , ],
["WinXP","", , , , , , , , ],
 ["|Item 1333","", , , , , , , , ],
["MS-Word","", , , , , , , , ],
 ["|Item 1334","", , , , , , , , ],
["MS-Excel","", , , , , , , , ],
 ["|Item 1335","", , , , , , , , ] // delete comma at the end of the last item
]
);

dm_init();

Notice that you should write dm_init(); function in the last file.

In the .html file you should write
...
<tr>
<script type="text/javascript" src="@MY books (Multiple Col.js"></script>
<script type="text/javascript" src="@MY books (1.js"></script>
<script type="text/javascript" src="@MY books (2.js"></script>
</tr>
I hope you understand me.


Q: I am very interested in using your deluxe menu products for my new website design, particularly the Tree Menu. I've been looking at the javascript tree source and am a bit worried that the links used will not be recognised by Search Engine robots - do you have any information regarding implementation of your menus so that the links are fully visible to search engines ?

A: You can generate search engine friendly code.
Javascript/DHTML Tree is a search engine friendly menu since v2.4.
To create a search engine friendly menu you should add additional html code within your html page:

<div id="dmlinks">
<a href="http://deluxe-menu.com">menu_item_text1</a>
<a href="http://deluxe-tree.com">menu_item_text2</a>
...etc.
</div>

To generate such a code use Deluxe Tuner application.
You can find this GUI in the trial package.
Run Tuner, load your menu and click Tools/Generate SE-friendly Code (F3).



Q: I\'m testing out your menu system and I have a question regarding one of our current menu item\'s functionality.

Currently, I have a menu item that performs an onclick window.open function so that it opens a popup window at a certain size and with certain parameters.
Is it possible to have similar functionality with an item on your menu system?


A: You should use a Javascript code with a link field so:

["Text", "javascript:window.open('../Help/Text_Index.htm', 'Help', 'height=450,width=600,scrollbars');"]
