Position of Frame based Menu

I want the frame based menu like this one: and I deleted the left frame (sideframe).
But now the submenu in the mainFrame isnĀ“t positioned right.
You can see it here:
If you put the mouse over "Moped" than the submenu should come under "Moped" and not so much left.
Where can I make it right??

Hi Marc,

Since the fames demo is still version 3, I'll move this into the v3 forum, but I'll also go ahead and answer ;)

In the frames demo, there's a a file called frames_header_array.js that hets loaded into the header frame. At the top of that file, there should be a global variable called Frames_Left_Offset, e.g.,

Adjust that value until your submenus line up the way you want. Since you've removed the side frame, you'll probably want a positive value. Maybe start with 100 and adjust from there.

Hope that helps,

Before you go to a lot of effort coding a menu, I'd strongly suggest you get the V5 menu and go with Iframes. Your menu may look ok at the moment but the fact that it is so old means you may get bugs or development problems later on and you'll have to start again from scratch. There have ben so many developments with the new menu, and it's much faster.

I used to use the V3 frames menu and considered holding back from V5 until a frames solution was made but I'm glad I didn't. I went with Iframes which have been superb, and am shortly going over to SSI.
