    Default How do I create INCLUDE files on stated script.

    Hi Guys,
    I hope this is the correct section.

    I am using one of the DD scripts (AnyLink Vertical Menu) - see script below.

    I have started putting it in to see how it works.. and it is working fine.. but my problem is that: 1) I want it to be in an include file so that i can change the menu values throughout the site by only changing the one file 2) I want to get all the 'pointless' scripting out of my normal page.. so i can hide it away in an include file

    The scripting is:

    <style type="text/css">

    #dropmenudiv{
    position:absolute;
    border:1px solid black;
    border-bottom-width: 1px;
    font:normal 12px Verdana;
    line-height:18px;
    z-index:100;
    }

    #dropmenudiv a{
    width: 100%;
    display: block;
    text-indent: 3px;
    border-bottom: 1px solid black;
    padding: 1px 0;
    text-decoration: none;
    font-weight: bold;
    }

    #dropmenudiv a:hover{ /*hover background color*/
    background-color: #08bdd6;
    }

    .style6 {font-size: 9px}
    .style7 {color: #C1D3FB}
    .style9 {font-size: 10px}
    .style12 {
    font-size: 10px;
    font-family: verdana;
    color: #666666;
    font-weight: bold;
    }
    </style>

    <script type="text/javascript">

    function populatemenu(what){

    }


    function dropdownmenu(obj, e, menucontents, menuwidth){

    else if (e.stopPropagation) e.stopPropagation()
    clearhidemenu()
    dropmenuobj=document.getElementById? document.getElementById("dropmenudiv") : dropmenudiv
    populatemenu(menucontents)

    if (ie4||ns6){
    showhide(dropmenuobj.style, e, "visible", "hidden", menuwidth)

    dropmenuobj.x=getposOffset(obj, "left")
    dropmenuobj.y=getposOffset(obj, "top")
    dropmenuobj.style.left=dropmenuobj.x-clearbrowseredge(obj, "rightedge")+"px"
    dropmenuobj.style.top=dropmenuobj.y-clearbrowseredge(obj, "bottomedge")+obj.offsetHeight+"px"
    }

    return clickreturnvalue()
    }

    function clickreturnvalue(){
    if (ie4||ns6) return false
    else return true
    }

    function contains_ns6(a, b) {
    while (b.parentNode)
    if ((b = b.parentNode) == a)
    return true;
    return false;
    }

    function dynamichide(e){
    if (ie4&&!dropmenuobj.contains(e.toElement))
    delayhidemenu()
    else if (ns6&&e.currentTarget!= e.relatedTarget&& !contains_ns6(e.currentTarget, e.relatedTarget))
    delayhidemenu()
    }

    function hidemenu(e){
    if (typeof dropmenuobj!="undefined"){
    if (ie4||ns6)
    dropmenuobj.style.visibility="hidden"
    }
    }

    function delayhidemenu(){
    if (ie4||ns6)
    delayhide=setTimeout("hidemenu()",disappeardelay)
    }

    function clearhidemenu(){
    if (typeof delayhide!="undefined")
    clearTimeout(delayhide)
    }

    if (hidemenu_onclick=="yes")
    document.onclick=hidemenu

    </script>
    So basically I need to know what I need to do to put this lot into include files.. eg: what bits go where, how to link them in etc.

    I don't have much knowledge with this sort of stuff.

    Cheers for any help in advanced!

    Sam :-)
