Recent Questions

Q: In the rollover menus, how can I have a heading link to and open another website's home page?

A: 1) You can show the popup window when you hover, click or mouseout on some elements on yourpage. For example you have:

<p><img border="0" src="images/submenu-bg.gif" width="170" height="29" id="open_popup"></p>

So, in Deluxe Tuner you should enter 'open_popup' object ID in the onMouseOver,onClick or onMouseOut fields.

Actually you can assign id to any object on your page:
add id="open_popup" for <a>, <div>, <img> ... tags.

2) Or you can create only one data file and use deluxePopupWindow.open() function to open the popups.

More info about deluxePopupWindow.open() function you can find:
http://deluxepopupwindow.com/window-installation-info.html

function deluxePopupWindow.open("winID", "content", "header", "param", "skin", "contentType")

Use another winID (first parameter) than you have in your data file if you don't want to close 1-st popup window or use thesame winID=win if you want to close 1-st popup.

content - will be the path to the file you want to load in your popup (files/test.html)
skin - is the name of your skin (default in my example)
contentType - set this parameter to iframe.

I call the skin .js file with id='win'.
On the page you should open popup windows with the same id:

<a title="Click to open sample" href="javascript:;" onclick="deluxePopupWindow.open('win', 'files/test.html', 'Window','width=220,height=270,resizable,scrollbars=no,middle,right,fade-effect', 'windowsvista_graphite', 'iframe')">Click to open 1 PopupWindow with 'files/test.html' content.</a>

<a title="Click to open sample" href="javascript:;" onclick="deluxePopupWindow.open('win', 'files/1test.html', 'Window','width=220,height=270,resizable,scrollbars=no,middle,right,fade-effect', 'windowsvista_graphite', 'iframe')">Click to open 2 PopupWindow with 'files/1test.html' content.</a>

<a title="Click to open sample" href="javascript:;" onclick="deluxePopupWindow.open('win', 'files/2test.html', 'Window','width=220,height=270,resizable,scrollbars=no,middle,right,fade-effect', 'windowsvista_graphite', 'iframe')">Click to open 3 PopupWindow with 'files/2test.html' content.</a>

<a title="Click to open sample" href="javascript:;" onclick="deluxePopupWindow.open('win', 'files/3test.html', 'Window','width=220,height=270,resizable,scrollbars=no,middle,right,fade-effect', 'windowsvista_graphite', 'iframe')">Click to open 4 PopupWindow with 'files/3test.html' content.</a>

<a title="Click to open sample" href="javascript:;" onclick="deluxePopupWindow.open('win', 'files/4test.html', 'Window','width=220,height=270,resizable,scrollbars=no,middle,right,fade-effect', 'windowsvista_graphite', 'iframe')">Click to open 5 PopupWindow with 'files/4test.html' content.</a>

<a title="Click to open sample" href="javascript:;" onclick="deluxePopupWindow.open('win', 'files/5test.html', 'Window','width=220,height=270,resizable,scrollbars=no,middle,right,fade-effect', 'windowsvista_graphite', 'iframe')">Click to open 6 PopupWindow with 'files/5test.html' content.</a>

<a title="Click to open sample" href="javascript:;" onclick="deluxePopupWindow.open('win', 'files/6test.html', 'Window','width=220,height=270,resizable,scrollbars=no,middle,right,fade-effect', 'windowsvista_graphite', 'iframe')">Click to open 7 PopupWindow with 'files/6test.html' content.</a>

So, the previous window will be closed and the new one will be opened.If you want to open several windows at once use different id's for each link.



Q: I am trying to create a multicolumn dhtml navigation menu and nothing appears when I upload it to my server. I am attaching my menu called menu.js that I have created and placed in a folder called menudir.

Can you please advise, thank you.

A: You can find more info here:
http://www.deluxe-menu.com/highlighted-items-sample.html

Deluxe Menu has only two states normal and mouseover.

Try to do the following things:
- delete   var pressedItem=1; parameter from your data file
- set correct parameter on each page before you call data file, forexample:

<noscript><a href="http://deluxe-menu.com">dhtml navigation menu by Deluxe-Menu.com</a></noscript>
<script type="text/javascript">  var dmWorkPath = "menudir/";</script>
<script type="text/javascript" src="menudir/dmenu.js"></script>
<script type="text/javascript">  var pressedItem=3;</script>
...
<script type="text/javascript" src="menudir/data.js"></script>

You can also set a pressed item using Javascript API:

function dm_ext_setPressedItem (menuInd, submenuInd, itemInd, recursion)

Sets a current pressed item.
menuInd - index of a menu on a page, >= 0.
submenuInd - index of a submenu, >= 0.
itemInd - index of an item, >=0.
recursion = true/false - highlight parent items.

But notice, to use dm_ext_setPressedItem() you should know ID of selected item and subitem. You can't get this ID after you reload your page. That is why you should write your own code on PHP.


Q: I'm testing the trial version and I'm having a little problem with the state saving. Everytime it navigates to another page, it does not save the state, even with

  var tsaveState=1;

In fact, it actually opens up a different menu other than the one I originally clicked.


A: See, if you open pages (with menus) from different folder it means that you open different menus. So, when you change a state, for example, of the first menu within "newzap/" folder and then open another page with the menu within "newzap/learn/", browsers looks for another cookie file and can't find it and the second menu stays in a default state.

Try to set different

  var tsavePrefix="menu1";
  var tsavePrefix="menu2";
  var tsavePrefix="menu3";

for different menus.
That should work.


Q: I think I am almost there.
I would like to know a couple of things.

Why the menu does not float?
Why I cannot centre the menu?


A: When you use floatable menu you can't use relative menu position.
So, if you use
  var absolutePos = 0;
and to center the menu you use <p> or <div> with the center alignment your menu won't float.
To center your floatable menu you should set absolute coordinates.
  var absolutePos = 1;
