However, after using your menu for a few months, I have discovered a problem. When I bought the menu, the claim was made it worked with all doctypes. I use "strict" on my web site and want my pages to validate as strict with W3C or WDG validators.
I get a notice of incorrect copyright when I remove the link to yoursite in the heading of the document. Since this line does not validate,I feel that you should provide an adequate alternative to having a unsubstantiated line in your html code. I have looked over the FAQ on your site and have found no remedy. You have a wonderful product and I wish to continue to use your menu. But this one little bugaboo surely can be fixed on your end by altering the requirement to keep the incorrect copyright from appearing even though it shouldn't appear in my opinion.
For instance, I can alter the line and make the link invisible.
Example: <noscript><a href="http://deluxe-menu.com"></a></noscript>
By making the link invisible with no text, it will mean nobody would see the blatant ad for your site. The incorrect copyright notice does not appear under those circumstances, however it still does not validate.
I just want to create web pages that validate! Please help me as a struggling web author to achieve my goal and still use your menu which I paid for! Thanks for any help you can give me.
I love my deluxe-menu! Please help to keep using it.
A: Thanks for your interest in our products.
Try to move <noscript> tag into the <body> tag.
A: You can use Individual Item Styles to set showByClick parameter forthe top items only.
var itemStyles = [
Q: I'm having difficulty understanding how to set up css drop down menus. The differences between menuStyles, itemStyles, CSS and CSSText is very unclear, and doesn't seem to be well documented.
Do you have any better documentation or writeup on using this feature?
A: No, unfortunately we don't have additional documentation. You can findall info on our site.
We have several examples of the menus using css.
You should set var cssStyle=1; parameter and then assign your stylesto the items.
var cssSubmenu is a CSS class name for all submenus. You can set, forexample, background color, background image, borders for all submenus.
var cssItem is CSS class names for all items (normal state, mouseoverstate) in the top menu and submenus.
var cssItemText is CSS class names for text of all items (normalstate, mouseover state) in the top menu and submenus.
It's possible to appoint individual CSS styles for separate elements of the menu using individual item styles and individual submenu styles.
Q: In the item window, it says "use Ctrl jey to slect and copy items" But when I try it doesn't work.
I use Ctrl C and Ctrl V
A: To select a group of items you can use Shift and Ctrl keys.
To rename an item click on it and hold a mouse cursor for a second. Or use item parameters window.
To move items select items you want and use a mouse drag'n'drop method.
To copy items select those you want and use a mouse drag'n'drop method holding a Ctrl key.
Also you can use a contextual menu - a right mouse click on the list of items.
