Q: We purchased your software and would like a way to give our users the ability to right click (or equivalent) and open a link in to a new window.
Is there a way to do this? If not, do you have a work around that people have found helpful.
As an example, I have a menu item that goes to http://www.google.com. Typically, it loads this in to one of our frames. However, I would like the end user to have the ability to either load it in to one of our existing frames or to load it in its own window.

["<a href='index.html' target='_blank' class='home'>Home</a>","", "", "", "", "Return to Index page", "", "0", "", ],
And create styles

What we want is, when a user enters our site from the index (home) page then clicks on a link and the sub-page opens, for the dhtml menu tree to be open to the section the user is in and viewing. We also DO NOT want the browser to save the state of the menu, since that is inconsistent with where the user is in the site. Note: we do not use the Menu on the home page, is this a problem?
Per your tech support email, I've added the expand code, which works going from the home page to sub-pages. However, it interferes with navigating to other sub-pages once your in the site. The menu doesn't keep the section open, it closes back up. You mentioned the expand code has to be entered on every page....is that so in this instance and if so, that's a maintenance nightmare - does a better way exist for this type of menu?
Then we activated the "save state" option and the menu stays open on the sub-pages, but the expand option doesn't work.
It's like they cancel each other out and you can only have one or the other.
Can I get these two to work together? What do I need to do? Is it better to use the XP-style menu?
A: When user clicks the link, the browser loads a new page and the script re-create the dhtml menu tree.
If you want to open the needed section automatically on load you can use the following:
1. Save the state to cookies
2. Use frames
3. Put the special script on each page of site that will open appropriate section.
