hi there. i'm trying to create a slide-in menu in my forums, but i don't understand what some of this stuff means.
here's the menu I want to use:
Dynamic-FX Slide-In Menu (v 6.5) (http://www.dynamicdrive.com/dynamicindex1/davidmenu.htm)

Firstly, this:

"The two files contained are "ssm.js" and "ssmItems.js", both of which you should upload to your webpage directory."

I don't know what my webpage directory is, or how to upload to it.

Also, if someone could tell me how to make the background colour of the menu semi-transparent, that would be great. If you're unsure what I mean, there's an example here:
Info Bar Example (http://s15.invisionfree.com/White_Ice/index.php?act=idx)

This is EXACTLY what I would like my info bar to look like. If someone here could help me to achieve that, I would be very grateful.

thanks

Do you have a website?

This would be your webpage directory:

http://s15.invisionfree.com/The_Jedi_Council/

for this (and possibly others) file:

index.php

Basically, the web page directory is the folder where your web page is. You can upload to it using whatever means your host allows/provides. Common methods are FTP, FP extensions and host provided web based utilities. When working locally on your own computer, it is the folder where your local copy of your page is.
