Need to supress horizontal menu bar.

I need to develop a menu system for a site that has a menu bar already created as part of the work done by the site designers. You can see the home page with the bar at The problem is the designers want to use their own horizontal menu bar, with vertical popup menus activated by mouseover on the horizontal menubar images (which already change color in the mouseover, but should also invoke a vertical menu below the option).

Is this possible with Milonic? If so, could you provide some code examples so I could try it out? Basically I just need to use my own horizontal menu bar, not the one provided by Milonic.

Thanks, :)

Hi Dave,

I'm sorry it took so long on this reply but I had to find a link about using swap images and pop up together. This is not something I do so hopefully this post will help you. ... 7857#17857

You can then use the images you have and the popup Milonic for the submenus.

Also, here is the example of using the pop menu function positioned by images, which I believe the above posting used.

Dave, you can do all of what you have there with the Milonic menu. Not sure why your designers are insisting on using their code.

Anyway, see as an example of an image-driven menu (not even popup!). You can see the code at

I have dug up an old post which maybe helpful to me:

Basically, I have the same issue as captaindav had. Given the limited knowledge in html, css and php, there is a key element that is still unclear to me.

My goal is to use the existing horizontal menu bar that came with the blog theme (see Green-bug-10 Word Press theme ... en-bug-10/). Using the Milonic menu as its sub-menus. How is Milonic Main menu Name being supressed by web default menu item? My image menuback.gif is just a thin vertical line for the menu bar is defined in Style.css as follows:

background: #5D7311 url(images/menuback.gif) repeat-x;
color: #DDD;
height: 35px;

Here is what have partially extracted code from Header.php. The Milonic sub-menu appears, but here are the problems:

1. the vertical line - menuback.gif is stuck out on the default main menu bar.
2. No main menu item or menuback.gif insight in Internet Explorer 7.

How do I solve this problem? Thanks. Here is the code extracted from Header.php:
<img src="/images/menuback.gif" border="" name="menuback" id="menuback">
<TD><ul><li><a href="#" onmouseover="popup('Page3','menuback')" onmouseout="popdown()"><font size="" color="">Page3</font></a>

<!-- Milonic Popup Menus -->
with(milonic=new menuname("Main Menu")){

<!-- aI("text=Page3;showmenu=Page3;"); -->

Never mind guys. I've got it.

It is the sample site that I have got the utlimate clue. Finally, my blog default main menu bar works with Milonic 3-level popup menu as the sub-menu. Here is the simple code that I have put in the Header.php:

<td valign=top><ul><li><a href="" title="Page3" id=mypage3 onmouseover="popup('Page3','mypage3')" onmouseout="popdown()"><font size="" color="#FFFFFF">Page3</font></a>

Thanks so much for this message thread which has solved my menu integration issues.
