View Full Version : Need help with Smooth Navigational Menu (v1.3) with Ajax fetched external file

07-07-2009, 01:10 AM
1) Script Title: Smooth Navigational Menu (v1.3)

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

3) Describe problem: Hi, I managed to make the external version of the script work on my website with the original fetched file from DD, but I need help to be able to fetch my own directory index file. How do you do that? I read the instructions several times but I just don't get it, probably because English is my 2nd language.

It is not clear whether you supposed to create a file "ddsmoothmenu.init" and run it, or it is a script text that I need to insert into another file?

If I supposed to run it, do I need a telnet or ssh-terminal access (which I don't have), or is there any other way of running it?

here is the link to my files, but as I said, I am using the original index file:

Are you simply asking how to set up the menu so its HTML markup resides in an external file and fetched using the Ajax option? If so, your test page (http://www.pumi.org/geza/dynamicindex1/test.html) seems to be successfully set up for this already.

The reason for it is being setup successfully is that it was set up by someone from your team. (I indicated it in my first posting.)

What I would like to know how can you generate a file like this automatically, meaning that for e.g. I either have to run a script to do it, or go to a website that is capable of generating an external directory listing in this format.
