Q: I have a issue involving the location of the files.

What is the correct method of referencing the webroot (document root) in the deluxe tuner?

I ask because I have some pages that are in a sub folder on the server.
eg. index page is http://www.domain.com/index.html
but another page might be at
http://www.domain.com/somedir/somepage.html

And then the references do not work.
Currently I am editing the data.js file after saving it in deluxe tuner.


A: If you want to use relative paths you should write your links in thefollowing way.

If you have, for example such file structure:

     deluxe-menu_files/
      dmenu.js
      data.js
     images/
     html_pages/
      page1.html
      page2.html

     index.html

So, you should write write all your paths concerning index.html file.
For example, you paths will be:
    ["HOME","html_pages/page1.html", , , , "_self", "-1", , , ],
    ["ABOUT US","html_pages/page2.html", , , , , , , , ],

Unfortunately, Deluxe Tuner can't do it automatically. You shouldcorrect your paths manually.

You can use additional parameters to make menu paths absolute:

  var pathPrefix_img = "http://domain.com/images/";
  var pathPrefix_link = "http://domain.com/pages/";

These parameters allow to make images and links paths absolute.
For example:

  var pathPrefix_img = "http://domain.com/images/";
  var pathPrefix_link = "http://domain.com/pages/";

  var menuItems = [
    ["text", "index.html", "icon1.gif", "icon2.gif"],
];

So, link path will be look so:
http://domain.com/pages/index.html

Images paths will be look so:
http://domain.com/images/icon1.gif
http://domain.com/images/icon2.gif

Please, try to use these parameters.


Q: I am having a difficult time trying to integrate your menu into a frame system of my clients. The url that I am testing at is...

I believe that I have followed your instructions to the letter, but can't seem to get the cross-frame system to work. Any help would be appreciated.


A: Please, check dmWorkPath parameter. You should write in the followingway:

<SCRIPT type=text/javascript>  var dmWorkPath = "nav_011907_files/";</SCRIPT>

See also how you should write your dm_init function
dm_initFrame("frmSet", 1, 2, 1);

Please, notice also that JavaScript Tree Menu can work within 1 frameset only.
It can't work correctly within nested framesets. It is possible that you'll havesome errors.


Q: How can I add a separator to the vertical menu using the dynamic functions?
It seems as though the only way to get a separator into the menu is by defining itbefore hand, but the website I'm building will require me to reload themenus dinamically, and I'm losing the ability to put separators on it.

A: You should add items using the following function:

function dm_ext_addItem (menuInd, submenuInd, iParams)
or
function dm_ext_addItemPos (menuInd, submenuInd, iParams, Pos)

Find more info:
http://deluxe-menu.com/functions-info.html

Set the following parameter:
  var dm_writeAll=1;

So, you should write:
dm_ext_addItem(0, 4,  ["|-", "", "", "", "", "", "", ])


Q: There is the possibility in the menu that an item has access control, that is is visible or not depending of the user?


A: You can use Javascript API and write your own code.

See more info here:
http://deluxe-menu.com/functions-info.html

You can use

dm_ext_changeItem (menuInd, submenuInd, itemInd, iParams)
to disable your items or

dm_ext_changeItemVisibility (menuInd, submenuInd, itemInd, visibility)
to hide your items.
