correct me, if I'm not up to date - but in the previous version of your menu I was missing the possibility to add leading arrows or bullets. So I added this feature with an image variable.

Maybe there could also be an option to add an arrow at the end of each item if there is a submenu (like in hierarchical menus, which is the classic dhtml-menu to be beaten).

If not already done, you could possibly add these features in new versions of your script. :-)

Hi Sebastian,
If I am right then what you are looking for is already available in the Menu.
Check out the menu's homepage and check out the menu used there - it already has the arrows for submenus implemented.

Hi, Neil,

you are right concerning the arrows at the end of each item - I simply forgot about that. By the way, I wonder why the background of the "down"-arrow is not transparent in the example page, you manchined.

My main proposal was to add leading arrows or bullets and I haven't found that. I did this with a variable on the page, which is still using the old version of the milonic menu, and it worked fine.

I would appreciate if this feature was added in new versions of the script.

Hi Sebastian,

Sorry I can't help you any more - I'm not a coder of Andy's calibre I'm afraid.
Just looking through the mmenu.js file makes me feel sick!

I assume it is just a matter of changing the alignment/position of the image in the mmenu.js file - who knows.

Hopefully if Andy or Yadin are looking in on this thread then maybe they can help you more.

Hey guys,
There is no feature to add an image as a 'bullet' as if doing an unordered list in the menu. You can align the submenu image to left right or center, but of course this only shows up if there is a sub menu. If you wanted to add bullets to your menu items then yes you would need to tag in your own images or use a text bullet. Your suggestion is noted, but I think it will be pretty low on the list as you can handle this easily without us bloating the code.

I hope Yadin or some other coder can help me on this one:

I need to rebuild the CS homepage ( and I'm pretty far in completing the task with your menu script.
The only problem is with the changing arrows. I can get my arrows to change on MouseOver, but the problem is, on MouseOut they change back to their original state.
But they should remain in their mouseOver-state when a submenu opens, just like the bgColor of the entries remain in the selected color. I tried and tried to change the popi- and popdn-functions but can't get it up and running.
I also saw that your example with dynamic images isn't finished, yet, so I assume you're working on that.

man, you posted this everywhere didn't you? :) Again, sorry but this isn't currently how the menu works, but I agree it should. I've passed this to Andy for consideration of a later release. Since text does stay highlighted on the parent when in a child menu the rollover should also stay active. The problem is they were coded differently at the time. We'll keep you posted!
