Recent Questions Script Tree Menu Howto

Q: When running DeluxeMenu with IE or Firefox, the background (appearance and items) is transparent.
It is not smart because it affects the reading of the menu's.
My question is: how can I fix this problem for IE and Firefox ?
If you look at it with Opera (version 9.00) one does not have the problem.


A: You should set this parameter:

  var transparency="100";


Q: I have made use of the Ajax function in JavaScript Tree Menu. It has made maintenance of a rather complex menu system a lot easier.

I went to generate a Site Map in dhtml menu builder today and realized a shortcoming of using Ajax submenus, the Site Map doesn't show Ajax submenus.

It would be great to have an option in the Generate Site Map (as well as Google XML and Google Search) to include Ajax submenus for a complete picture of the web site.

A: Unfortunately there are such problems with saving of AJAX submenus.
It is not possible to save AJAX submenus in Deluxe Tuner now and it is not possible tocreate search engine friendly code and sitemap for the AJAX submenus.

We'll try to add such features in the future versions of Deluxe Tuner.


Q: I have been using the DHTML Menu program for years and they are working good.

But I found an office where the javascript tree menu example just simply does'nt appear.

I am curious about it, why just in that office the Menu is not working.

I can note than other javascript routines I put on my page are not working neither.

Can you give me some idea of what can I check on the computers?
Something on the explorer? (IE6) , or a kind of program?

A: Your browser has JavaScript option disabled.
It means that no one JavaScript element can be run.
You should to enable JavaScript in IE:
Tools -> Internet Options -> Security -> Custom level... -> Scripting -> Active Scripting = Enable

There is no way to enable these preferences automatically, in othercase there are no reasons to create security preferences.

You can use search engine friendly code, so you'll see all yourlinks (for the main items and submenus) when your security settings in IE doesn't allow Javascript.

You can generate search engine friendly code.
JavaScript Tree Menu is a search engine friendly menu since v1.12.
To create a search engine friendly menu you should add additional html code within your html page:

<div id="dmlinks">
<a href="http://deluxe-menu.com">menu_item_text1</a>
<a href="http://deluxe-tree.com">menu_item_text2</a>
...etc.
</div>

To generate such a code use Deluxe Tuner application.
You can find this GUI in the trial package.
Run Tuner, load your menu and click Tools/Generate SE-friendly Code (F3).


Q: Can I install the menu using my buttons? I might be able to do it if the buttons used only one image, but they use two images. One is light and the other dark.

I also have some questions:
1) Will the menu stay in view when the user scrolls down?

2) I'm not even sure I care if the menu stays in view, because I believe that is done using php and is not good for SEO. The file that the search engines see is index.html while the file that visitors see is home.php. I think it would be better for SEO to have a normal .html page. Are you able to do that?


A: See how you should make image-based menus: if item text is empty, icon fields will be used as item images.
For example:
["", "index.html", "menu1a.gif", "menu1b.gif", "Home Page"]

1) You should use floatable feature.
See the following parameter:
  var floatable=1;

2) You can generate search engine friendly code using Deluxe Tuner:
"Tools/Generate SE-friendly Code".
