Search Engine Friendly ?

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

Search Engine Friendly ?

How friendly is this with search engines that like to follow/spider navigation links ?

It's not friendly at all. NorCascade uses the Actinic generated Section Tree JavaScript data structures. These (like the Actinic YahooSections menu) cannot be followed by spiders, robots, etc.

The usual solution is to generate a Site Map (Design / Options / Sections / Site Map) and have a hand-coded link to that on all your pages. This allows all pages to link to all other product ones.
