I just downloaded the code/files for HV menu v.5.5. from the site here, but I'm having trouble installing it into my site:

www.houstonaplus.org

One possible problem is that I have a template page - though i'm guessing/hoping I can just install it in my template and not have to bother with installing on each page - there are alot of them.

The other problem is that my page is a bit complex to begin with. If you look at the site, basically I want to replace the left-hand side bar with a drop-down menu so that we can save space.

All of this is being done on dreamweaver. Because we're a non-profit, we want to figure this out in-house and I feel like it's not that complex, but I just need some help figuring where to place the dhtml code.

Any ideas? solutions? help?

Thanks!
-Michael.

Hi

if you go to http://http://www.asperger.co.za/

You will see a menu I found on the web awhile ago, that I think is what your looking for. grap the files menu.htm and menu.js and modify to your hearts content.

This is helpful and I like the drop down function.

But I'm still left with the problem that I'm unsure how/where to place this code in my webpage. Could anyone out there have a look at my source code and give me an idea of where to place this?

I haven't done this before and am unsure of how to fit this into an already existing .htm page.

Hi, the way I did it was in frames.. but you could do it in a table as well.

When you grab the menu.htm page, if you saved this and placed a frame on the left hand side on the page in a cell of a table and have the next of the pages either in frames or whatever you want. then always refer to this frame in the left hand side of your template it will work.

If you grab the index page from the link I gave it will give you an idea of what I mean.
