How do i make a vertical menu bar

I feel so dumb because i don't know how to do this. I want a menu in which the main header catagories are stacked on top of each other, not side by side. That way i can put the menu on te left side of my page and have the submenus come out to the left of the whole menu.

Like this:

Hi Bane,

The 12th element of a menu array (where the first element is the menu's name) determines whether it will render as a vertical menu or a horizontal menu. 0 = vertical, 1 = horizontal.

Hope that helps,


I have a similar issue

I'm working with the set of menu files I downloaded today and am encountering an issue trying to get a vertical menu displayed.

I'm using IE 6 and Mozilla 1.2a (both on XP with SP1) to test my files.

I'm trying to get a vertical menu and have set the 12th element property to 0. However, in IE 6.0.2800.1106.xpsp1.020828-1920(!) I get a dialog box with the following:

"an Invalid Argument line34 char 247"

Not a very helpful message as I'm guessing it's in one of the menu files but can't be sure which.

In Mozilla 1.2a I get a nice vertical menu as expected... :)

My curiosity surrounds the IE error and no matter what I try I still get the error and would like to get rid of it.

I've even downloaded the files again today and replaced my development files and only changed the 12th element (horizontal) property and I still get the same error in IE 6.

Of course the horizontal menu option works a treat.

Any ideas from anyone on this please?

Could you post a URL to your staging site, so we can have a look at your code? Much easier to help that way.

Er :oops: today I get the vertical menu happily using the same code as yesterday untouched but after a reboot.

So it works now in IE.

Thank you anyway.

Darn computers...! :roll:
