This menu is no longer supported. It is still available only as a convenience for those who want it. The sample is the model and beyond that there's no support for it, it's much too old. If you don't need frames, or if you can use iframes, I suggest you use version 5 which is a much more advanced menu using much of the newer developments that have occurred.

You cannot modify the mmenu.js file. This is a commercial product, it is copyright protected.

Sorry about this but thought I'd step in here.

Basically, if you want to modify Version 3 code then I see no reason why you cannot do this. After all, it's unsupported code anyway so this won't affect the warranty.

As long as the copyright statements are not modified then everything should be fine.

Ruth, thought I'd let you know that this change of heart will only affect version 3. Version 5 is still under strong protection and is not to be touched. However, I doubt anybody would want to even touch the code these days because of the semi strong encryption we have in place

Hi lauchunhui,
As you see, Andy says you can modify the version 3 code. Just remember to keep all the copyright statements with it. I still think you should see about using version 5. It is supported and it has so many more features which are up to date with the new developments on the web, you can even do the menu design from css.

You can use 5 with frames, the difference being that the menu won't open across the frames. However, there is a non supported code to use it across frames, getting the subs to function as pop menus. You can of course open pages in other frames, or better yet, you can use iframes and the menu will actually drop over the iframe so you don't need to code on every page that loads in the iframe.

Anyway, good luck, whichever way you go. Milonic is the best system out there, I believe.
