1) Script Title: Slashdot Menu

2) Script URL (on DD): http://www.dynamicdrive.com/dynamicindex1/slashdot.htm

3) Describe problem:

Hello everyone. I am new to this forum and still rather new to PHP so any help would be greatly appreciated. :)

Here is what I am trying to accomplish:

I am designinga site which uses a standard menubar to access the main areas of the site, but the "Products section contains many categories which in turn have sub categories. The SDMenu would be the perfect wa to navigate to these subcategories. This would however mean that all the category and subcategory pages would need the SDMenu.

I would therefore like to load the menu via PHP using <?php require_once('sdmenu/sdmenu.htm'); ?>

Can his be done without braking the menu?

If I understnd things correctly I should place the following in te head of each page:

<link rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" href="sdmenu/sdmenu.css" />
<script type="text/javascript" src="sdmenu/sdmenu.js">
* Slashdot Menu script- By DimX
* Submitted to Dynamic Drive DHTML code library: http://www.dynamicdrive.com

<script type="text/javascript">
// <![CDATA[
var myMenu;
window.onload = function() {
myMenu = new SDMenu("my_menu");
// ]]>

and the menu code into the external file:

<div style="float: left" id="my_menu" class="sdmenu">

<a href="index.html?query">Current or not</a>

Can anyone clarify this for me?:confused:
