Q: I do have issues. There are not the problems when you are on the home page (you can click on one of the dropdown submenus and go there.
However, when you try to go to another page from there to another page on a nother drop down, nothing happens except javascript erros. The dropdowns physical work, in that they drop down, but the links don't go anywhere. Does that make sense.


A: See, the problem was in your dmWorkPath parameter

On all pages placed in the subfolder you should write it in thefollowing way:

<script type="text/javascript">  var dmWorkPath = "../ifnav.files/";</script>

Please, correct it.

You should also use additional parameters to make menu paths absolute:

  var pathPrefix_img = "http://domain.com/images/";
  var pathPrefix_link = "http://www.infocusnet.org/design/";

These parameters allow to make images and links paths absolute.
For example:

  var pathPrefix_img = "http://domain.com/images/";
  var pathPrefix_link = "http://www.infocusnet.org/design/";

  var menuItems = [
["text", "index.html", "icon1.gif", "icon2.gif"],
];

So, link path will be look so:
http://domain.com/pages/index.html

Images paths will be look so:
http://domain.com/images/icon1.gif

Please, use pathPrefix_link parameter.


Q: I have downloaded the trial version of Deluxe Menu and am seriously looking at buyingit. I am trying to go thro the instructions and check out if it meets my requirement.

I am not able to figure out how to equally space out all my menu items on the javascript menu bar.

My menu bar width is fixed at 800 px and I have 7 items - horizontal type. The menuitems widths appear different for the menu items. How do I ensure that all of them are ofequal size ??



A: Set width for the items using Individual styles:

  var itemStyles=[
["itemWidth=100px"],
] //style 0
Assign Individual Styles for the menu Items.

  var menuItems = [
["Item 1","", "", "", "", "", "0", "", "", "", "", ], //style 0
["Item 2",", "data2.files/icon1.gif", "data2.files/icon1o.gif", "", "", "0", "", "", "", "", ], //style 0
];


Q: Do you have a Mac version for javascript menu navigation?


A: You should download free trial version on MAC.
So, you'll have MAC version of Deluxe Menus.

And use the licensed engine files from the licensed .zip
(you candownload it from the link in your license message).

Q: What can I tell people who aren't seeing their drop-down menu? For example, I have a client who can't see his on his machine, while I can on see the menu on one of my machines but not the other.

Please advise what makes the difference and how to correct the problem.

A: When your security settings in IE doesn't allow Javascript onpages you load you can't see a dynamic page content. So, you cannotsee your javascript menu at all.

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.
Deluxe 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).
