Q: We are testing your css drop down menu and everything is fine, except for the slow load in IE7.
After the page is loaded, the first time we open each item it takes a lot of time to appear.

Do you have any solution for this problem?

A: Check that you've set the following parameter:

  var dm_writeAll=0;

You can also try to turn off transitional effects:
  var transition=-1;

And adjust the following parameters:
  var smShowPause=100;
  var smHidePause=500;

Q: I ordered & installed the dhtml collapsable menu.
I can't seem to get the floating function to work. Here's how I have the variables set in the data-tree.js file:

  var tfloatable = 1;
  var tfloatIterations = 10;
  var tfloatableX = 0;
  var tfloatableY = 1;

And here are the links to the .js files in my HTML doc <head>:

Please let me know if there are any other settings that need to be changed. I'm hoping to go live with this site wed. so a quck reply is appreciated.

A: Notice, your dhtml collapsable menu won't float with relative position. You shouldset:

  var tabsolute=1;

Q: Will all your navigation bar examples work cross-frame?

A: See how should you create cross frame menu:

1. To initialize the cross frame menu call dm_initFrame()
function instead of standard dm_init() function within data.js file:

dm_initFrame(framesetID, mainFrameInd, subFrameInd, orientation);

framesetID - id attribute of the frameset;
mainFrameInd - index of the main frame (where the top-menu is placed), >=0;
subFrameInd - index of the subframe (where the submenus will be shown), >=0;
orientation - frame orientaion: 0 - top-to-bottom, 1 - left-to-right; 2 - bottom-to-top; 3 - right-to-left.

So you should create your menu in Deluxe Tuner, save it.
Create html file with your frame set.

Set ID for the first frameset:
<FRAMESET id=frmSet rows=220,*>
<FRAME id=frame1 src="Deluxe Menu Samples_files/cross-frame-horizontal-1.htm"> //menu frame
<FRAME id=frame2 name=frame2 src="Deluxe Menu Samples_files/testlink.htm"> //content frame

Then you should open your data file in any text editor and change
dm_init(); for example to dm_initFrame("frmSet", 0, 1, 0);

Q: I am generating a conference website which I though will be out as soon as possible but you javascript menu generator has become impossible to insert in my page, here attached in a sample page, it is basic html, so tell me where am going wrong.

Or otherwise insert it for me.

A: Now you have:

<style type="text/css">
<!-- Deluxe Menu -->
<noscript><a href="">Javascript Menu by</a></noscript>
<script type="text/javascript">  var dmWorkPath = "data.files/";</script>
<script type="text/javascript" src="data.files/dmenu.js"></script>
<!-- (c) 2007, by -->

It is not correct.

You should write:

<style type="text/css">
<!-- Deluxe Menu -->
<noscript><a href="">Javascript Menu by</a></noscript>
<script type="text/javascript">  var dmWorkPath = "data.files/";</script>
<script type="text/javascript" src="data.files/dmenu.js"></script>
