View Full Version : Hv Menu

01-29-2005, 05:15 PM
This problem is driving me crazy.

I am reworking a site to use the HV Menu. It works beautifully at home and on a test site at my provider.

Using the domain name (which all others use) the menu does not work. URL is http://www.powayarts.org/newopen4.htm (Registered with NameSecure and forwarded to Tripod)

Using the "actual" location, the menu does work. URL is http://powayarts.tripod.com/newopen4.htm

I have tried just about every suggestion that I could find such as using absolute addresses vs relative, location of the code within the overall document and others.

I renamed exmplmenu_var.js to var2a.js for use on that specific site.

(I also use another java script for the footer and that works on both URLs. It is named menufoot.js.)

Any suggestions - I'm willing to try them.

The redirector is pointing towards http://powayarts.tripod.com//newopen4.htm - try removing one of those slashes to make it http://powayarts.tripod.com/newopen4.htm

Thank you for replying.

I'm a novist at this. I had seen the double slash before but I have no clue as to where to look? Would this possibly be with NameSecure where I remember entering a forwarding URL. If that were the case I could just rename the newopen4 to index and be back to something that might work as the original page has no problem?

Appreciate the answer very much!

I don't know what NameSecure does, but when inputting the redirect URL, instead of

Name Secure is the DNS that "forwards" the domain name entry to the actual server where the website is.

I removed the slash at the end of the forwarding URL at Name Secure.

The double slash no longer appears but the forwarded version still will not show the menu.

As a test I uploaded another menu java ( Jim's DHTML Menu v5.7) and in the absolute and the relative versions of URL this one works fine. Tried this yesterday and even the double slash opened.


Both open Jim's menu example OK.

Notices an error symbol in the lower left of browser window. Opened that for the "newopen4.htm" version and here is what is shown:

Line: 39
Char: 2
Error: Access is denied
Code: 0
URL: http//powayarts.tripod.com/newopen4.htm

I don't understand as that URL is the one that works. The error message is when the domain name version is loaded, i.e., http://www.powayarts.org/newopen4.htm

Thanks for reading and any help or suggestions are definitely welcomed!

Hi! I had the same problem yesterday!

The menu worked when I view from my Computer, and looked fine when I looked directly at the webspace, but when I went throught my Domain it would work!

I spent all day yesterday fiddling and nothing helped.

Today I have gone to their website www.burmees.nl/menu and downloaded a newer version and it works perfectly!

Hope it works for you too!

Thank you for your message. I'll check it out as I really want to use the HV menu.

I downloaded the latest. The example shows using "menu8_com.js" which I did not find in the download. I tried using "menu131_com.js" but still have errors on the domain name link. Used the original "menu_com.js" I had and that took me back to original conditions, i.e., works on local, test, and direct sites but not domain name redirected (forwarding). This was using the example_var.js that came with the new download. I changed the menu items to agree with my previous listings.

Which two js files did you use?
Thank you for any answers. To get page up and working I am not using the drop down menus but am using mouseovers and mapping to achieve the linking. Not so neat but it works.

The author of the HV code was kind enough to supply me with the solution to the problem. For others experiencing similar, check out these changes - - -

var FirstLineFrame="";
var SecLineFrame="";
var DocTargetFrame="";


var MenuUsesFrames=0;

Great help and truly appreciated!
