My site requires me to regularly update the drop down menu by inserting a new item at the top of the list. A: Add items using the following function:
function dm_ext_addItemPos (menuInd, submenuInd, iParams, Pos)
Adds the new item to a submenu.
menuInd - index of a menu on a page, >= 0.
submenuInd - index of a submenu, >= 0.
iParams = [array] - the array of item parameters.
This parameter has the same structure as an item in menuItems array.
You can assign parameters of another existent item of the menu
(for example, when you want to create a duplicate of the existent item) or create new ones.
Structure of iParams:
[item_text, link, icon_normal, icon_over, tip, target, individual_style_index, jsFilename]
Pos - the position in the menu where you want to add new item.

If item text is empty, icon fields will be used as item images.

I made a html CD presentation based on cascading drop down menu but it works good only onIE and Google Chrome web browsers.
It doesn't work good on Mozilla Firefox browser. It shows menu properly but there is a problem with normal navigation.
The problem is with paths. I put the main js file in "menu" folder and I also have few folders with many html files in them.
For path I use the following "file:/(direct path to specific html file)". It works fine with IE and Google, but Mozilla/Firefox doesn't show the menu.
I tried also to use prefix "file:/" but it also doesn't show the cascading drop down menu on Mozilla/Firefox.
Is there any way to solve this problem?
Thank you for your answer. A: It is not correct to add "file:/" in the link field.
You should write:
You can try also to write links in the following way:
But I don't think that this will help you.
This is a feature of Firefox browser, Opera and Safari. These browsers cannot determine the root folder ofthe website (D:\ in the examples below) on a local machine (as IE and Google Chrome).
IE: D:\html\other\page.html (works)
Opera: file://localhost/html/other/page.html (link doesn't work)
Google Chrome: file:///D:/html/other/page.html (works)
Safari: file:///html/other/page.html (link doesn't work)
Firefox: file:///html/other/page.html (link doesn't work)
You use relative paths (and your folders have several embedded folders), so your links won'twork correctly in Firefox, Opera and Safari. The reason is not in the menu. Standard linkswon't work too.
So I think that the unique solution in your case is to move ALL link files (1.html,2.html, a.html ...) into the same folder with your index.html file.Q:
