I was told by a co worker that blank.htm would need to be kept on the root folder of the website that it would speed it up or something, is this true? :roll:

does any even know what I mean?

Since using the menu, a co-worker was lead to believe through some reading here that putting an empty copy of blank.htm on the web root would speed the menu generation. Last month we recorded 288,000 hits to the file. We would like to delete it if it truely does not good but 288,000 hits says something is hitting it in the background. Does the menu use a blank.htm for anything and if so how do I get around using it? Thanks

Andy will have to take that one. I've never heard of it and do not use it myself.

Merge ?? Site loading slow because of blank.htm using TLS 1.0, RC4

mmenu.js - Line 426 says

if(ie55){ifBlnk="";if(location.protocol=="https:")ifBlnk="/blank.htm";mt="<IFRAME frameborder=0 id=if"+mnu+" src=\""+ifBlnk+"\" scroll=none style=\"FILTER:progid:DXImageTransform.Microsoft.Alpha(style=0,opacity=0);visibility:hidden;height:20;position:absolute;width:"+(menu[3]+ns6w)+"px;left:"+dmleft+"px;top:"+menu[1]+"px;z-index:5\"></iframe>"}

This is what I am referring to, is blank.htm required? What modifications can be made to alter this?

I believe that blank.html is used to prevent a security message when the site is viewed through https in ie55. If you aren't using https, then you don't need the blank.html file on your site (and, in fact, that file should only be accessed if https is the protocol in use, as implied by the if statement). The fact that you get hits on this page suggests to me that you are using https... so you probably need the file.
