Welcome to my Comments Pages

Please note. I get a few hundred emails a week from visitors asking for help, or posing questions on how to modify my demos to suit their application and I read them all. Unfortunately I only have a limited amount of time to spend answering these questions.

So if I do not reply, please do not be offended, and if I do reply then you are one of the lucky ones.

If you are asking for permission to use any of my demonstration then please email me with your request stu{at}

Thanks, Todd. I can't get it to work in IE5.5 though. Must try harder :)

Stu, you keep surprising me with yet another great menu, excellent work again.
IE7 is almost out of beta, and IE6 runs even on my very ancient 233 Mhz machine, so I wouldn't spend much energy on making this work on IE5.5.

Rodney, 240 visitors from 120,000 this month use IE5.5 or less. But you are right in that these browsers will soon not be supported.

Stu: By the way, my family and I are heading "across the pond" for our first European trip next week...we'll be in Salisbury for most of it, but also in London (and Paris for a few days)...can't wait!!!!

Stu, that 240 (.2%) IE5.5 or less-users probably even include a few testers (yourself ?). Nice statics btw, you deserve it.

Hi Stu, Love the menu. Can preview the code in Safari! Question. How can this one be adapted to a vertical. Ask the question on another comment but I can't find how to change positioning.

Stu. Great menu. I have been trying to figure out if there is a way to allow the hover state to maintain on a certain menu item when a page is clicked (kind of a cookie crumb effect). This drop-line 2 menu would be a great example of that. Lets say for the first menu item, you clicked on a secondary page. Is there a fairly simple way to maintain the hover effect so the user can tell what page he is on?

Brett, you will need to give that menu a new class and style it so that its drop down line is visible, and the link also styled to have the selected look.

A wonderful menu once again.
Just one suggestion; could you add a space underneath the dropline to that the menu remains visible even if the mouse drifts off a little bit. YOu have done this for your drop down menu
I just thought this might improve usability.
Great site though, keep up the good work.

David, you could use the same method on this menu.

Great demos Stu, cheers! Can I please ask your permission to adapt and use this dropline menu on a commercial project? Please email me for the url of the work in progress - adrian [at] transformerdesign .co .nz Thanks!

Do you think there will be a version of this menu with a 3rd layer drop down? Whether it was vertical or horizontal It would really expand the capability of this awesome menu!
(02.01.2007, 18:01)

Stu, I modified your CSS for the drop-line menu to enable it to handle multiple layers. If you are interested in this please email me. I would certainly allow you place it on your site if you would like to. BTW: All of your scripts and menus are awesome.

I'm embarrassed to ask this, being a total non-coder (I use GoLive to design sites), but tried this menu (in GL), and found it referenced a bunch of .gif files... where would I find them? Or how would I make them?
