Recent Questions Scriptaculous Tree MenuQ: We have several problems with your menu.
Notice when trying to select a drop down item…the item disappears, rather than holding in place as the mouse is over the menu item.
Second, we’d like to know how to expand the width of the main headers and sub headers. Currently, they are not of the same width.
Lastly, we’d like to change the font and load new fonts to match the branding of the menu items.
Please let us know where we can find instructions to make these modifications/customizations.
A: Please, try to write your menuItems parameter correctly.
You should set "iconOver" parameter for each item (you can set "").
Please, see how you should write your menuItems:

You should use Individual styles, for example:
var itemStyles = [
["itemWidth=120px","arrowImageMain=image1,image2=home_out.gif,home_over.gif"],     // style 0
["itemBorderWidth=2","itemBorderStyle=solid,solid", "itemBorderColor=#AA0000,#0000FF"],     // style 1
["fontStyle=bold 12px Arial,Helvetica", "fontDecoration=none,underline"],     // style 2
var menuItems = [
For submenus you should set the following parameter:

You should also use Individual styles.
But you should set this parameter:
And then use different fonts for your items.
Q: Will this menu rollout from within an iframe over a regular frame underneath it?
Q: I am testing out your menu system as I try to redesign my site. It is a vertical menu with submenus.
I have hundreds of pages in my site and I'd like to be able to attach your menu system to all of them.
However, I will be making changes to the menu system on a regular basis.
I do not want to go change every program in the site each time I need to make a menu change.
I was hoping you could give me some kind of programming code that I could enter into the <body> section of my html files which would automatically read a file into my prograrm, which contained the menu code.
This way when a menu change is needed, I edit one file, all the programs read that file and display the menu.
As an example of the code I would want read into a webpage at start up:
<div id="dmlinks" style="font:bold 9px Verdana;color:#FFFFFF;text-decoration:none">
<a id="dmI0" HREF="500main.htm">Home</a>
<a id="dmI2" HREF="tixbbs.htm" TARGET="text">For Sale</a>
<a id="dmI4" href="testlink.html">Place Ad</a>
<a id="dmI5" href="testlink.html">Sources</a>
A: If you change the menu parameters only there is no need to change code on each page. You should only replace your old data file (data-deluxe-menu.js) with the new one.
If you don't want to install your menu on each page, you can try to use frames, the menu has a cross-frame mode.
Please, see more info about cross-frame mode here:
Also you can use a server-side script (php, asp, vb, etc.) to generate html pages from templates on your server.
Q: I have a couple of questions related to the deluxe-menu software. Here they are:
I have been working with on a site and I am kind stack using the program. I want to use the tree option but not all java script drop menu items need to have subcategories. For example:
Category 4 When someone click on the "Category 1" or "Category 2", I want them to see the sub-menus. However, when some click on "Category 3" or "Category 4", I would like to have it open the appropriate page. How do I do this? This will make a lot easier because not all java script drop menu items need to have sub-menus… I hope that makes sense and you can help me on getting this done.
Thanks in advance and looking forward to your answers,
A: You cannot use links for the top java script drop menu items in XP Style only.
but you can write:
["<a href='http://deluxe-menu.com'>Item 45</a>","", "", "", "", "", "", "", "", ],
