Return to Recent Questions


Q: How do I get started with DHTML Menu? Do you have a link to the page where I can find an instructions?

I designed my own website with DreamWeaver 8.0 ( www.lesvants.com ) but don't have a clue as to how to start designing with your javascript dhtml menus.


A: Unfortunately we don't have step by step tutorial now. We'll try to create it in the nearest time.

Dhtml Menus weren't developed as Dreamweaver/Frontpage extension, BUT you can use it as standard Javascript files. To install the javascript dhtml menus into your html page you should do the following things:

1. open the page in your program
2. open html source code of the page (you can create it in DHTML Tuner)
3. add several rows of code (<script> tags), For info see:
http://dhtml-menu.com/dhtml-tree/installation-info.html


That's all.

It is possible that Dreamweaver changes some paths, so you have an error in the preview.
On your site or in your browser there'll be no errors.

1. Create your javascript dhtml menus in DHTML Tuner application.
You can create any menu as you like in DHTML Tuner.

You can use ready to use templates. You can find them in the templates window.

When you open DHTML Tuner ( DHTML Menu ) click "File/New" and add items and subitems using buttons "Add Item" and "Add Subitem" on the main window.
You should set items and subitems parameters on the "Item Parameters" window.
See also other parameters for the menu on the main window.

More info about menu parameters you can find on our site (you can also use local version of the site which you can find in the trial package "DHTML Menu / dhtml-menu.com/menu/ /")
http://dhtml-menu.com/menu/parameters-info.html
http://dhtml-menu.com/menu/menu-items-info.html

You can also use Individual Styles for items and subitems
http://dhtml-menu.com/menu/individual-item-styles-info.html
http://dhtml-menu.com/menu/individual-submenu-styles-info.html

2. You should install the menu on your page.
You can click, for example, File/Export to HTML (you can't do it in the MAC version).

Add several rows into your html page.

<head>
...
<!-- DHTML Menu -->
<noscript><a href="http://dhtml-menu.com">Javascript dhtml menus by DHTML-Menu.com</a></noscript>
<script type="text/javascript">var dmWorkPath="menu.files/";</script>
<script type="text/javascript" src="menu.files/dmenu.js"></script>
<script type="text/javascript" src="data-menu.js"></script> //data-menu.js - data file created in DHTML Tuner.
...
</head>

<body>
...
<table>
<tr><td><script type="text/javascript" src="menu.files/data.js"></script></td></tr>
</table>
...
</body>

Also you should copy all engine js files
dmenu.js
dmenu4.js
dmenu_add.js
dmenu_dyn.js
dmenu_key.js
dmenu_cf.js
dmenu_popup.js
dmenu_ajax.js
into "menu.files/" folder. You should place this folder in the same folder with your index. html page.
