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: You've been helping me with some issues on the Deluxe Tree Menu system my company has purchased and most issues are resolved, so thank you! One big problem remains though and we can't seem to figure it out, so I hope you can help.

What we want is, when a user enters our site from the index (home) page then clicks on a link and the sub-page opens, for the dhtml menu tree to be open to the section the user is in and viewing. We also DO NOT want the browser to save the state of the menu, since that is inconsistent with where the user is in the site. Note: we do not use the Menu on the home page, is this a problem?

Per your tech support email, I've added the expand code, which works going from the home page to sub-pages. However, it interferes with navigating to other sub-pages once your in the site. The menu doesn't keep the section open, it closes back up. You mentioned the expand code has to be entered on every page....is that so in this instance and if so, that's a maintenance nightmare - does a better way exist for this type of menu?

Then we activated the "save state" option and the menu stays open on the sub-pages, but the expand option doesn't work.
It's like they cancel each other out and you can only have one or the other.

Can I get these two to work together? What do I need to do? Is it better to use the XP-style menu?

A: When user clicks the link, the browser loads a new page and the script re-create the dhtml menu tree.
If you want to open the needed section automatically on load you can use the following:

1. Save the state to cookies
2. Use frames
3. Put the special script on each page of site that will open appropriate section.

Q: I tried to add a fixed width on some of the items that I thought had too much empty space on the right of the text but would not work. Is it possible to have a fixed amount of pixels after the text for all navigation items of the css drop-down menu?

A: You can set padding parameter in the following way:

  var itemPadding="3px 15px 3px 3px";
                            top right bottom left
