Menu offsets when using Frames

Poster: Hingo
Dated: Wednesday July 17 2002 - 20:47:02 BST


I have configured a menu to open in a specific frame and it works fine apart from the sub menus are offset to the left by almost one main menu width.

I have tried to adjust with many different parameters but none have any affect.



I'm having same problem and more, lol.

Hi Hingo and others...

I am using just a header and main frame and am finding the links to the left, not under the headings.

Another super important question is this..

How do I actually point to the correct url's? As of now I just have wording to the effect of..


After the = sign I had typed in shorter versions of the actual links.

What do I do with these darn things?

Also, if I try to put a url in it's place, the history thing?, I can get the page but the links will activate but won't show the dropdown.


Thanks :)

I had this

I had this problem as well. It is because the frame demo uses three frames. Adjusting the width of the side frame shifts the position of the submenus. I asked for help and some kind person out there said he did this:

>Beginning at line 181 (in my file) the following statement occurs.....

> if(menu[11])
> {
> fLeft=gp[1]+mp[1]+100 //Frames_Top_Offset;
> }
> else
> {..........................
> The bold type is the 100 number. I haven't tried adjusting this

This is using 3.3.18 so I don't know if will continue to work in 3.4.12. If it doesn't work for you in 3.3.18 I have the actually mmenu.js I can send to you that makes it work at

Looks different

Hi Sbueffel..

This is what I have...


Looks a bit different, huh?

Any ideas?

Thanks ;)

Yes, you would replace



fLeft=gp[1]+mp[1]+100 //Frames_Top_Offset;

That, I believe, is the only difference.

Does it not work with IE5.5 or lower or netscape?

One more question, lol.

I have a chat room that is loaded from another server and the dropdown goes behind it.

Is there a way to stop this from happening/

Thanks for all your help :)

Hide DIV

To make the menu show over your chat window, use the hide div feature of the menu. It is explained in the samples under forms in the complex section.

Thanks and! lol

Thanks and thanks to others :)

However, I did read the instructions for the form that i want to hide but am having trouble.

Might anyone take a look at this for me and look at the source?

I would appreciate all help.

Thanks in advance..

That URL won't work because of the menu?

Try going to and clicking on COMMUNITY, then CHAT.
