How do you do the second buttons ?

Is that what you mean by loosing some of the side menu buttons tararn / fe ?

as above or just do links inside ?

Come in from the garden for lunch, hey? ;)

The 'second buttons' point at 'Child' pages from the 'parent', or Main, page in each section. So, in the example, The Deciduous and Evergreen pages are the 'children' of the 'Shrub' page. In Site View, those are joined to the Shrub Page icon. In Page View, go to the Home Page (or whatever the first page is), select the navbar, and in the Properties menu, make sure the 'Include Child Pages' option is ticked. Also make sure the 'Include Javascript Menus' option is ticked.

By 'loosing some of the side menu buttons', I think you mean the comments that Taran and FE (and I...) have made regarding the number of buttons you have on the navbar - many of your pages could be grouped together like the example: in fact, this was an almost subtle hint...;)

Best of luck

the check-boxes are towards the bottom of the Navigation Bar Properties Box - don't confuse this with the Banner Properties, you must select the buttons down the left-hand side.... and don't double-click on a button, that will select only that button, you must just single-click and then the whole navbar will be selected.

If you want to play around with NOF but leave your site intact, just create a copy of your site (Save Site As...) and then play to your heart's content. And you do have a backup of the site, don't you? ;)

i can get the vertical nav prop menu. but cant work it out i can see primary and parant button but i dont get it.

I bet its something simple but till i find it i wont no haha

In the Navigation Bar Properties Box, under Navigation Structure, do you have the 'Site' button checked, or the 'Custom' button? If it's 'Custom', you won't have the 'Child/Javascript' buttons available.

And backing-up takes a coupla seconds, you know it makes sense ;)

I can remove the buttons and just have the ones i want, but cant work it out how to link to others

Still cant see the javascript/child button
i dont know what java is.

Iam using the vertical nav box menu it says child primary and parent

You dont have a pic do you ?

I dont have custom pressed


Think i should have stuck to keeping the buttons

You're using MX aren't you? Doh... I led you right up the garden path ;)

OK, let's start over (and just create a blank site for test purposes):

and then

click here

for a step-by-step look.

The Navbar you'll get won't look quite like the one in the example I knocked up before, that'll need a bit of Javascript, but it will get you by.

Good luck

When you're on the site, click on the bottom button, Child Nav Bar
