I have recently installed a dropdown menu - HV Menu v5.411 by Ger Versluis from http://www.dynamicdrive.com which runs in a wide range of browsers and version (from IE and Netscape 4 upwards as well as Opera 7.)

It works fine. I realise that some people turn their scripting off to avoid nasties so I have a crude method of allowing for degrading by having the javascript HV Menu floating over the html horizontal navbar menu. In testing when the browser scripting is turned off then the html horizontal navbar menu shows.

Sometimes when i have browser scripting on there is a slight lag in the page loading and for a brief time the html horizontal navbar menu shows before the HV Menu loads properly. As this is kind of ugly I was wondering if someone could advise me on how to code a neater solution along the lines of.... If the client browser scripting is turned off then show the Html Menu, Else show the HV Menu.

The HV Menu script in theme.html is as follows...
<script type='text/javascript'>
//HV Menu v5.411- by Ger Versluis (http://www.burmees.nl/)
//Submitted to Dynamic Drive (http://www.dynamicdrive.com)
//Visit http://www.dynamicdrive.com for this script and more
function Go(){return}
</script>
<script type='text/javascript' src='<{$xoops_url}>/hvmenu/tntmenu1_var.js'></script>
<script type='text/javascript' src='<{$xoops_url}>/hvmenu/menu_com.js'></script>

tntmenu1_var.js contains the following functions but I am not sure if/how to use them...

function BeforeStart(){return}
function AfterBuild(){return}
function BeforeFirstOpen(){return}
function AfterCloseAll(){return}

Any advice from a javascript guru would be helful. If I can get this working I would be happy to share this static horizontal dropdown dhtml/javascript solution here.

Cheers,

Gamut

Gamut:

I'm not sure about the configuring a menu for users that turn javascript off, since I understand javascript on is a requisite to use XOOPS.

That said, I talked with people from SoftComplex (http://www.softcomplex.com), the creators of Tigra Menu, a versatile and powerful DHTML menu, and they wrote a customized version for XOOPS that we're in the process of adapting for the incoming formal release of the XOOPS Net sites.

Also, some of our devs are working hard and are about to finish the transformation of this menu into a full-fledged XOOPS module, so it shouldn't be long before we have a complete solution for horizontal and vertical dynamic menus for our XOOPS sites.

Cheers.

Horacio,

That is brilliant! I will stick with what I have got then until the release. I honestly didn't expect such a module so soon.

Thanks for the advice,

Gamut

Is it expected that the Xoopsed version of Tigra menu will be available for the current version of XOOPS or will it be for the next version?

BPJones:

Sorry for the delay. I hadn't looked into this lately. At the moment the Tigra Menu module is in beta testing, so I guess it won't be long before its developer delivers it to the XOOPS community.

Cheers.

If they would like some help beta testing it, I'm creating a new site that I'd like to implement it on and would gladly test it as such. Feel free to let whichever developers that are working on know that they can contact me if they'd like.
