Hi Everyone,

I have recently had a brainwave [ Not an origional one I am sure :] but I have been experimenting with using an < !--Include virtual statment to structure my code a little and reduce site maintainance.

I have been playing with using layers and flash text to create dropdown menu systems and the rather than frames, using a page with a layer, and then using an include to include it on each of the pages on the site. This way I can edit the menu, pull the
This worked ok, but the size of the menu load with the flash text was not the best, so I had a play with the DWMX show popup menu and created a menu that is very quick and still looks good. [The menu system uses external mm_menu.js]

Unfortunatly, when I use this menu with the include, nothing comes through. I belive that the issue is that as the menu is using an external .js file to run the menu, and then when the menu is being called with an include, that the .js is not making it all the way through. Can anyone confirm if this is the case, and is there any way around it ?

I think I may be able to do it using a dhtml menu instead as the code is all file internal, but my preferance would be to use .js . I have tried taking the mm_menu.js code, and slapping the functions in the main file, but I am no js coder and although I think I have gotten it to work as a single independant file, I still dosnt show when I use the include, so I am probably doing somthing wrong.

Anyway, sorry for the long winded question, any help, suggestions, direcetions would be appreciated.

My Two Cents I use a product called DHTML Menu Builder. He's worked out all the problems Bug! and it really didn't seem worth my time Big Grin!izza: Coffee!!!!! since someone else had already worked out all the issues between different browsers and browsers on different OSes. Geek Alert! His menus still aren't perfect, but boy, they sure are close.

The software is located at http://software.xfx.net/
