How to remove the drop shadow?

I need to remove the drop shadow on the main menu for a "vertical navigation bar"-type menu. How would I go about doing this? I still want the seperators and thin border around it, just not that gradient drop shadow.. TIA!!

A little searching in your code would have found this for you. If you copied the sample download, you are using this...

Code: Select all

overfilter="Fade(duration=0.2);Alpha(opacity=90);Shadow(color='#777777', Direction=135, Strength=5)";

Specifically, the part that controls the shadow is...

Code: Select all

Shadow(color='#777777', Direction=135, Strength=5)

Remove it.

Thank you, I know it was a dumb quesiton but I just started with Milonic yesterday.

I know a lot of you have had much more experience with the menu, so if you don't mind would you check out my menu and offer any suggestion(s)? thanks!! :)

here is the page with the menu: http://www.bbsmates.com/default2.asp

Looks good to me... nice integration. I might suggest a darker text offcolor to make the menu stand out a little more... maybe even try black, or the dark blue/green color used in your BBSmates logo (which might also tie the logo and the menu together visually).

Not at all. We all started at square-one, and we are all still learning. Ask anything you need. :)

I assume you might have already implemented Kevin's suggestion for text colors. Good choice.

From your site...

It will go away from the menu itself, but you still need to link to us somewhere on your pages per the license.

You mean even if I register the menu (or buy a license), I still have to put a link back to Milonic's website? Why?

Or are you saying I can put a link on my website to Milonic somewhere else on the page/site and get that 2nd item removed from the menu?

please clarify this for me.. thanks!

This is the correct statement.

There is info on the homepage as well as http://www.milonic.com/licfaq.php

I took a look at the site, very nice. I actually used to belong to the Blue Moon BBS in Buffalo NY. My first BBS, I liked it the most.

Oh and by the way, I see the Milonic link seems to be gone. Hopefully this is because you purchased a pro license. If thats the case, make sure to put your license number into the menu code. If not and you only have a free license, i didnt see any links back to milonic. Just making sure you're on the straight and narrow... ;)

Yeah, I'm going to get that taken care of today.. I have the free license. In the meantime, did you sign up at the site? Did you find if that BBS was listed at the site?
