Suggestion: Setting to Stop the menu scrolling down the page

I didn't see this in the settings so if it's already in there, then please let me know...

Anyhow, I have the menu set to scroll down the page as the user scrolls down so the menu is always visible. However, I'd like to be able to set the menu to stop when the bottom of it reaches a certain number of pixels from the bottom so it doesn't move down and cover up my bottom shared border.

Basically assuming the code could determine how long each page was, and then subtract whatever setting I set (e.g. 100) and when the bottom of the menu hits whatever that is, it would stop scrolling.

Dunno if this is even possible but would be cool.

Thanks,
--Mike

I dont think this will work because all page heights will be different depending on your content.

Yeah I know that's why I said you can get the page height and subtract a constant number depending on the height of the bottom border which would be the same on all pages. So if the page is XX, I always want the bottom of the menu to be at XX-50 or higher. When it gets to XX-50 it would be neat to ahve it stop scrolling.

stopping before end of page

OK but could there be any sort of doorstop coding on the page that would tell the menu to stop rolling at that point on the page?

And, by the way, what is the difference between followspeed and followrate?

Best wishes

Guess I've always been confused by this question (or maybe it's just still early over here), but my menus stay within a few px of the top of the page so there's no chance of running over a footer.

See http://www.west.asu.edu/cspc/steps/intro.htm as an example.

Have you tried keeping the menu contained in a table? I haven't worked a lot with that but if you footer was below the table it *should* keep your menu off of your informaiton.
