Three questions

Poster: anmu

I would buy a licence for a menu but I am unsure on three things. My english is not so good that I know, on what I have to search on the forum. In the faq I dont have found answers to my questions.

I would like to have the same menu what on the milonic-homepage is:
- the down arrows on the top-Menu
- the right-down-arrows on submenus
- the optional graphics on some menu entries
- the delimiter on submenues (e.g. "Text Based Samples" on "DHTML Menu Samples")
- I would like have the different colors on the submenus (green, black...)

Have milonic a sample with all this items? Is there possible the milonic-menu as a sample to download?

If I state that an example menu does not contain, which I want to make, can I download then with the same Lizens another?
And, if I put on menu_data.js, during the license de-energising this is also changed? Differently in demand: Can I the remaining js Files first a desire menu provide and this then de-energise and do have only exchange?

When I have a homepage and in this some subdomains (e.g., what should I write on "Main Website To License"? Or can I use a single licence only for

Obviously you have seen what this menu is capable of doing. You can apply any of the "features" to your menu setup. The sample downloads are simply that - samples of some of the more popular items used by our customers, but they can be combined as you need.

I would first suggest some reading is in order, so you become more familiar with the way the menu works. Try the items listed here.

1. Pretty easy to do this. Just take a look at Andy's _data file for the home page here. While he is using PHP to generate much of his menu, the basics of what you're asking will be the same.

2. You can download as many samples as you need. However, as you read my suggested items and learn how to operate the menu this will not be necessary. Just code in the features you want.

3. In most cases, will also cover your sub-domain.

Thank you for the answers, this will help me. Before 1.5 years I have made a simple menu with milonic (Version 4 shown at ), but this time it should have the most of the features in it. Then it's help, when I become a sample menu, that have it, e.g. the main menu from milonic. Thank you for the links. I will also generate the menu with php and mysql.

One question I have:

Can I code the menu_data-File and then download the (paied) other .js-Files? Is the copy-protection in one of these files, so that I can swich them simply?

The _data file that comes with any of the samples is just that - a sample of the particular item you chose. You can take that file and modify it to meet your needs and additional features, or use it to start fresh.

When you download any sample you must make sure you are logged in to the download site (a different login than here at the forum). This will insure that you automatically get code that is specific to your domain (this assumes you have purchased a license, of course). To upgrade, simply upload all 3 menu code files (not the _data file) to your server.

Note that the name of the _data file can be changed to anything you like. Sometimes this is safer, in case you upload the sample _data file by mistake. Then you won't accidentally overwrite all your work on your menu.

In your case, you will at least have to change the suffix; i.e., menu_data.php, since you indicated you will be using PHP (the other 3 menu files remain .js, of course). Perhaps domain_data.php, or whatever you like.
