Almost there! (Except for one tiny thing)

Another automatic cascading menu for Actinic 5 onwards. This one allows more modern DHTML effects.

Hello Norman,

Thanks for your help previously. This is my last request for help. I promise! :-) The menu works perfectly on my actinic created pages and i have partly succeded in getting them to work on my non actinic pages. But i'm missing something simple and can't spot it.


This menu is working perfectly via my actinic pages as shown at: http://trials.actinic.com/trials/trial2 ... Cases.html


This is an attempt at using the menu on a non actinic created page: http://www.merlinarcherycentre.co.uk/te ... rimary.htm


As you can see, its almost there, but not quite. I followed your instuctions, but I think there may be something wrong with my links to the scripts on the trial server. Your instructions quote: "If your pages are outside of the Acatalog folder then apply the Brochure patch above to your other pages. In these patches amend the 5 "src=" bits to contain the path from these pages to your acatalog folder."

I have put for these 5 "src=" bits the following -

<script type="text/javascript" src="http://trials.actinic.com/trials/trial2 ... "></script>
<script type="text/javascript" src="http://trials.actinic.com/trials/trial2 ... "></script>
<script type="text/javascript" language="JavaScript1.2" src="http://trials.actinic.com/trials/trial2 ... "></script>
<script type="text/javascript" language="JavaScript1.2" src="http://trials.actinic.com/trials/trial2 ... "></script>
<script type="text/javascript" language="JavaScript1.2" src="http://trials.actinic.com/trials/trial2 ... "></script>

Maybe the error will go away when i use my normal http://www.merlinarcherycentre/acatalog/ address when i go live?

Thanks for your help once again

These files are in the acatalog folder on the server thus

trial24883/Act_section_tree_names.js

needs to be

trial24883/acatalog/Act_section_tree_names.js

It's a bad idea to link to content on another site as customers might get security warnings about such content.

Your CSS file (that will be somewhere in the HEAD of your non-Actinic page):-

<link rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" href="pop_style.css" />

also needs the

pop_style.css

to be changed to point to

http://trials.actinic.com/trials/trial2 ... _style.css

It was the <link rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" href="pop_style.css" /> at the top of the page. Easy when you know how.

All the pages will be on the same site. I'm just making sure everything is going to work on the test servers before i go for it.

Thanks again.
