quetion on " Entire navigation route"

I have a 3 level menu and would like to show the "Active" choice of colour in the boxes
for the " Entire navigation route".

Should 3 boxes ( level 2, 1 and main ) be "active" if i pic a menu choice down on level 2 ?

Nothing happens if i chose " Entire navigation route" or " top level of current page" as parameter "Current" in the Design menu.

Regards
Gunnar Andersson

Top level of current page: Highlights the top level menu item that contains the current page.

Entire navigation route: Highlights the menu item for the current page, and all higher level items that lead to the current page.


if this is not working for you, please post a link where i can see the problem to investigate the cause.

Hello!

I have made a small test-menu and the adress is
menu_test1.php

active colour is red and entire navigation route ic "on"
The only menu-item with a link is
menu1 /submenu 1-1 /sub-menu1-1-2
The link is back to same page all other is only #

Do you need files menu.php and menu.css or any right to the map
CSSMenuWriter?

Gunnar

you really cant test the menu selection this way with a menu that does not link anywhere.


the menu highlighting is done based on the link for the anchor tag and the address in the address bar.

You need to create a set of pages and haver each link pointing to a unique page to test the menu highlighting.


you test of having only one page will not work.

OK!

Should the menu be placed in a templatete then and reload with the new information-page
or should it be in a main page and the pages with information load in an iframe?

Using a template is the easiest way to add it to all of the pages in your site.
