Q: I am trying to install a search engine on my site and am having trouble due to my use of your tree-menu system, which I love by the way.  I really need to find a compatible script that will search your javascript menu system, or at the very least search another file with mirrored links.  I DO NOT want to add the links to each page, this is why I love your menu's, there is one central location to change navigation statewide.

Do you know if there is a search script that can do this( js, php) or is there a way to make your javascript tree menus accessible to the search engine?


A: You can generate search engine friendly code.
Deluxe Tree is a search engine friendly menu since v2.4.
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).


Q: Thanks for getting back with me but how do you build the menu?

I opened Deluxe Tuner program to build a menu and there are categories titled common, dimensions, font, appearance etc. and I have NO IDEA what to do?

Can you walk me through the development of a menu?


A: First of all you should add items.
Please, click "Add item" and "Add subitem".
In the "Item parameters" window you can set text, link, target, iconsfor the menu items. You can also assign different style for each menuitem (item style and submenu style).
But at first you should create this style. Click "Edit IndividualStyle/Add Style" and set different parameters for the style.

Try to set different parameters of the menu.
In the "Preview window" you can see all your changes.

First of all you should choose menu orientation:
  var isHorizontal = 1; Menu orientation: 0 - vertical, 1 - horizontal.

You can set exact width and height of the menu in the "Dimension"category.

You should set
  var absolutePos=1;
if you want to have absolute positioning menu.

Font style you can set in the "Font" category.

To set color of the menu you should set the following parameters:
  var menuBackColor="#FCEEB0";
  var menuBorderColor="#C0AF62";
  var itemBackColor=["#FCEEB0","#65BDDC"];
  var itemBorderColor=["#FCEEB0","#4C99AB"];

Try also to change these parameters:
  var itemSpacing=3;
  var itemPadding="3px";

Arrows for main items and subitems you can set here:
  var arrowImageMain=["default.files/arrowmain.gif","default.files/arrowmaino.gif"];
  var arrowImageSub=["default.files/arrowsub.gif","default.files/arrowsubo.gif"];

If want to have floatable or movable menu you should set the followingparameters:
  var floatable=0;

  var movable=0;

You can also try to change any template.


Q: I ran across your site on a search engine and downloaded the trial copy. I am playing around with it and have successfully generated  a menu bar which I wanted to try and test out.  I have followed the directions for installing it on my trial page of my website and can not get it to work. I am not sure what I am doing wrong .  I would truly love to buy this, but even with following the installation instructions, I can not get free javascript drop down menu to work.  I use Dreamweaver to build my site.

A: Deluxe Menu wasn't developed as Dreamweaver/Frontpage extension and wedon't have plug-ins for it. To install the menu into your html page:

1. create and save .js file with your menu parameters in Deluxe Tuner(you can use "File/Save as/HTML" function).
You can enter any name you like, for example enter "menu". So you'llhave menu.html, menu.js files and "menu.files" folder with all menu files.
2. open your .html page in Dreamweaver
3. Copy generated menu.js file and "menu.files/" folder in the same folderwith your index.html page.
4. Open generated menu.html in any text editor and copy several rows of code (<script> tags), For info see:

<head>
<!-- Deluxe Menu -->
<noscript><a href="http://deluxe-menu.com">free javascript drop down menu by Deluxe-Menu.com</a></noscript>

<script type="text/javascript" src="menu.files/dmenu.js"></script>
</head>

<script type="text/javascript" src="menu.js"></script>

That's all.


Q: I have an image map of a graphic and I need to call my side navigation bar from an OnMouseOver in the image map…

<img src="data-samples/images/popup_pic.gif" width=180 height=119 onmouseover="return dm_popup(0, 2000, event);" onClick="return dm_popup(1, 2000, event);" style="cursor: pointer;">
