I am currently tasked with creating a large intra-type net for our company. ( knowledge base, FAQ etc. for internal use only ).
At this time I am making plain text or table based menus and getting tired of having to add the drop menus to EVERY page individually in our little intra-web. I would like to purchase software that makes groovy looking menus, but also get the information needed to have them appear on ALL pages after editing the menu once if you know what I mean.
Unfortunately my web authoring experience is best suited to circa-1996 web pages I can hash out in notepad in my sleep. However, I have been told in order to do what I am doing I need to use CSS or styles or cascading stylesheets and not sure if your software will do that.
If you don't want to create your drop menus on each page, you can try to useframes, the menu has a cross-frame mode. Also you can use aserver-side script (php, asp, vb, etc.) to generate html pages fromtemplates on your server.
I am using the menu in a frameset, and I would like for the selected menu branch of the side navigation bar to stay highlighted after the user moves the mouse to another window (where the menu brings up a new page),just so the user knows where he/she is. Is that possible?A: If you open links in the another frame (window) the initial frame with your menu isnot reloaded, so the clicked item will be highlighted.
You should set the following parameters:
You can also set the following parameter to save menu state:
If you install the menu without frames. On your pages you should call the following function/functions to expand/highlight items, for example:
dtreet_ext_expandItem (dtreet_ext_getItemIDByIndex (0, 0), 1);
dtreet_ext_setPressedItem (0, dtreet_ext_getItemIDByIndex (0, 1));

How do I make the links in the transparent drop down menu NOT open up in a new window?A: Try to set the following parameter:
I am creating my website on Frontpage. When I put my drop down menu in the centre of the page, it will be in the explorer browsers in the centre of the page, but when I look at other browers it isn't in the centre but on theright. I cant fix the problem. I cant find it. A: Try to set exact width for the menu in "px":
