Q: If I use the Search Engine Friendly Code feature, do I have to update or redo it each time I change the drop menu script and save, or if I do it once to the file will it automatically update on every save?

A: If you change drop menu script items (item's text and links) you should updateyour search engine friendly code. Deluxe Tuner doesn't update it onevery save (when you save your data file).

There is no need to update it when you change menu parameters only.



Q: Thank you for your prompt replay- the menu now works! However, the multi level dhtml menu takes forever to load up as demonstrated on our website. I was wondering whether there was any possible way of getting it to load up faster.

A: I have noticed no delays in the menu loading.

But your menu is big enough. You can try to us AJAX technology.

Try to set the following parameter also:

Q: I am totally confused by this now but I have 2 data files - one for a menu bar going horizontal and one going vertical both containing the same information. But even though the content is the same, the layout is different.

You will see that on the horizontal menu,

Fleet
Financce
CPC Cards
Cashire

These are listed correctly under each other but on the vertical one, the layout differs.


A: You should write your parameters more carefully.
See, now you have

menuItems = [
["About us","javascript:alert('Coming Soon')", , , ,"" ,0 , , , ],
   ["|||Organisation Chart","javascript:alert('Coming Soon')", , , ,"" ,1, , , ],

First you have the 1-st level of menu items then at once 4-th. It isnot right. You should write the number of your Individual Style in ""also.

See, how you should write your menuItems:

menuItems = [
["About us","javascript:alert('Coming Soon')", , , ,"" ,"0" , , , ],
 ["|Organisation Chart","javascript:alert('Coming Soon')", , , ,"","1", , , ],
 ["|Who's Who?","/k6intranet2.nsf/PageTitleLookup/Who's Who?OpenDocument", , , ,"" ,"1", , , ],
