02-12-2010, 07:19 PM
1) Script Title:
Hvmenu: Ger Versluis 2000 version 5.5

2) Script URL (on DD):

3) Describe problem:
Mysite is old but working well !!
I think it use menu_com.js "Ger Versluis 2000 version 5.5"

my problem is that the menu does not show well in other browsers rather then IE (like: Firefox and Opera..)

How can I change or upgrade the menu in order to solve this problem ?

This is an old script. It is also a 'third party' script, meaning that it was written by someone not directly associated with Dynamic Drive, and therefore not directly supported here in the forums.

So, if you are committed to using this script, first check this support page of the author:


There is information on that page as to how to contact him if that page and its related material don't answer your questions.

One thing that will work, but that has side effects that you may or may not notice and/or find manageable is to throw IE into quirks mode. That can be done by placing an HTML comment (any will do) right before all other code in the source for the page. Example:

<!-- this comment will force quirks mode in IE 5.5+ -->
<!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD HTML 4.01 Transitional//EN"
<meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=iso-8859-1">

<script type='text/javascript'>

//HV Menu v5.411- by Ger Versluis (http://www.burmees.nl/)
//Submitted to Dynamic Drive (http://www.dynamicdrive.com)
//Visit http://www.dynamicdrive.com for this script and more

function Go(){return}

<script type='text/javascript' src='exmplmenu_var.js'></script>
<script type='text/javascript' src='menu_com.js'></script>
<noscript>Your browser does not support script</noscript>

An alternative to all of the above would of course be to choose another menu from this index:


that would suit your purposes. If you want more active support here in the DD forums, choose a recent script authored by Dynamic Drive.

There are also other multilevel menus available around the web. Some are free, some not. If you like, Google:

multilevel menu

and/or other related terms to find these.
