Recent Questions

Q: This is a great product and I hope to use it for the project I am currently working on. I have played around with using simple javascript menu but have been unable to figure out how to make sub menu items live on multiple rows and columns. Could you point me in the right direction? I know with the individual styles I could make the category titles bold and put sub categories right underneath without actually making them sub categories.

A: You can find more info here:

Q: Where can I change the font size in the main deluxe menu's (i.e. Products, About, Contact Us)?
Using the deluxe tuner doesn't allow me change this font or the size, so the submenu's are bigger than the top.


A: You can also check Individual Item Styles. May be you set font sizefor the top items using Individual Item Styles.


Q: Do you have any working examples of a menu generated using .php from a MySQL database?

Our website is dynamic from a MySQL db and we already have categories and sub-categories. It would be useful if we could use this with our deluxe menu.

I don't know how to set this up, so any assistance would be appreciated.


A: You may generate a menu from a database or XML using any server-side script, e.g., PHP, ASP, VB, etc.
However, these scripts don't work inside of Javascript .js files, so, you should move parameters of a menu from a .js file into an html-page, e.g.:

<!-- Deluxe Menu -->
<noscript><a href="http://deluxe-menu.com">Javascript Menu by Deluxe-Menu.com</a></noscript>
<script type="text/javascript">  var dmWorkPath = "menudir/";</script>
<script type="text/javascript" src="menudir/dmenu.js"></script>
<!-- (c) 2006, http://deluxe-menu.com -->

<script type="text/javascript" language="JavaScript1.2">
// and describe parameters of a menu
  var parameter1=value1;
  var parameter2=value2;
etc.

  var menuItems = [
// here you generate items using server-side scripts (php, asp, vb, etc.)
];</script>

The example of the menu working with PHP/MYSQL you can find here:

Q: When I load a page with dhtml menu sample, lets say contact, the first tab is always highlighted, not the contact tab

A: I suppose that you've set the following parameter:

  var bselectedItem=1;

So, the first tab is always highlighted.

This Tab menu can save pressed item automatically within1 page only. If you open another page, the menu can't remember presseditem. You should do that manually using Javascript and menu parameters(  var bselectedItem,   var bselectedSmItem) or using any server-sidescript (php, asp, etc.)

You should delete this parameter from your data file and write thefollowing code on each page before you call your data file, for example:

<script language="JavaScript1.2>

  var bselectedItem = 3;

</script>
