We're certainly impressed. Are you? :)
We spent a lot of time presenting the script and docs in a way that's easy to understand and install. Download jimmenu57.zip, and refer to "tutorial/install.htm" contained for instructions on setting up this script.
Enjoy this great script from Jim.
Upgrading from version 5.3x to 5.7
To upgrade from any version of 5.3x to 5.7, simply replace all the .js files found in the "includes" directory with the new ones. Your old config file (where you define your menu items) will continue to work without changes.
Upgrading from version 5.3 to 5.3a
A bug that caused the frames targeting feature of the script to not work was discovered in v5.3, and fixed in v5.3a. The only files that need to be replaced are the .js files in the includes directory.
Upgrading from version 5.0 to 5.3
To upgrade your script from the old version (5.0) to 5.3, replace all files within your "includes directory" with the new ones. In other words, the core .js files. Then open up your old "config.js" file, and locate the "addItem()" functions, which look like:
menus.addItem("http://www.dynamicdrive.com", 22, "left", "Dynamic Drive", 0);
Change each one by adding in a new second parameter, so the result looks like:
menus.addItem("http://www.dynamicdrive.com", "", 22, "left", "Dynamic Drive", 0);
This new second parameter allows you to specify an optional link target, such as "NEWWIN."
