Hi Roy,

The script that does it is in the site's init.js file... it's ypslideoutmenu, from It's a pretty cool effect, to be sure, but as far as I can tell, using this menu is limited to newer browsers. The effect itself is achieved through some pretty heavy js coding, rather than a Microsoft DirectX transition effect.

You can get a similar, but not identical, effect in the Milonic menu by defining transitions in the overfilter and outfilter properties of the menu style. The only transitions that I can come up with that would be similar would cause a "wipe" effect rather than a slide effect (wipe down for mouseover, wipe up for mouseout). You could try the following combinations in your menu style:


Either pair will give a wipe effect. Change the duration value in each filter for a slower or faster rendering of the effect. You might also want to reduce the value of _menuOpenDelay at the top of the menu_data.js file, so that the mouseover effect is triggered more quickly (personally, I'd set _menuOpenDelay=0 ).

Also, since these (and other filters) are DirectX transition effects, they will only work in IE5.5+

Hope that helps,
