The Drop-Down Navigation menu is simple to edit. Everything is contained
in a page called "nav_top.htm" in your main template folder.
To change the Page List, or the Title that appears in the
Drop-Down Menu, open the "nav_top.htm" page in your editor, and then look in the
DO NOT EDIT THE MENU IN REGULAR
Once in the HTML VIEW, you'll find there are TWO major sections
that command the menu. The first section is the TITLE and script area, and the
next is the Page List.
Following are two examples. One is to change the Menu Title. The
second is to change a page listing in the drop-down... Only one example is
needed, since every change would be the same method...
Changing the Navigation Title
EXAMPLE for "Jewelry and Gifts:... The Title in the Drop-Down
Menu and the main script command...
Note that it is the first DROP-DOWN MENU - the "HOME" Title is
by itself. So this one is numbered as "dropmenu0" ... To edit the TITLE that
shows on the page, edit this area, changing ONLY "Jewelry & Gifts in the 5th
line to say what you want...
<td align="center" height="24">
onclick="dropit(event, 'dropmenu0');event.cancelBubble=true;return false">
onclick="if(ns4) return dropit(event, 'document.dropmenu0')">Jewelry &
Changing a Page Name in the Drop-Down List
EXAMPLE for "Jewelry & Gifts", to change a Page Name & Link in
the Drop Down Menu...
Locate this tag:
<div class="navdropmenu" id="dropmenu0">
<a href="products.htm">Product Catalog</a><br />
<a href="sales.htm">Sales and Specials</a><br />
<a href="gold.htm">Gold Catalog</a><br />
<a href="gifts.htm">Gift Catalog</a><br />
<a href="rings.htm">Ring Catalog</a><br />
<a href="jewelrycatalog.htm">Jewelry Catalog</a><br />
<a href="wedding.htm">Wedding Catalog</a><br />
<a href="specialgifts.htm">Collectibles Catalog</a><br />
<a href="mothersday.htm">Mothers Day Catalog</a><br />
<a href="christmas.htm">Christmas Gifts</a><br />
<a href="productdetails.htm">Product Details</a><br />
<a href="pricelist.htm">Sample Price List</a><br />
<a href="comparison.htm">Competitive Table</a>
Find the line you want to change... for instance, "Gold
Catalog", in line three. You would simply change ONLY the page name, i.e., "gold.htm"
to the correct page name, AND the title of the page, such as "Gold Catalog", to
the name you want. DON'T change anything else, especially the spaces, and above
all, REMEMBER that "You cannot use the apostrophe (')or the quotation (")
marks in your titles! It will cause the script to quit working!"... That's why
you see the page title "Whats New" instead of "What's New?" --- there is a way
to use the apostrophe, etc., but we're trying to keep it simple for you!
Adding or Deleting a Page To the Drop-Down List
Locate the menu where you want to add or delete a page
To delete a page from the list, highlight the correct line
from the "<a href to the end >, then delete the line and close the space.
To ADD a page, we suggest that you copy the line above where
you want your addition to appear, hit enter at the end of the line, then paste
the line you copied into the blank space... Now, just edit the line to the new
page name (something.htm) and the new page title, such as "All The Good Stuff",
(or whatever you want to call it! :-). Make sure you put a <br /> into the end
of all lines, but the last in the set.
Save the "nav_top.htm" page when you're done editing, and your
changes will now appear in the Navigation and Drop-Down Menu!
