Open Link In New Window
InThaBackyard - 12/6/2002 at 03:42 PM

I have checked the faq's and docs and i am unsure how do do this and if it can be done in the free version.

0 - link itself. This text will be inserted into href attribute of item's anchor tag.
1 - target name. This text will be inserted into target attribute of item's anchor tag.
2 - tooltip. This text will be displayed in small box appearing over the item after mouse pointer moved to it. Use it to additionally describe the item.

Unless you purchased Tigra Menu PRO license you use Tigra Menu Online builder to generate configuration for free version of Tigra Menu (v1.0).

To target frames or windows you need:
1. download frames compatible version of Tigra Menu at: http://www.softcomplex.com/products/tigra_menu/tigra_menu_v1.zip
2. replace menu.js in your current configuration with menu.js from demo #5
3. adjust menu_items.js file adding third parameter to each menu item. this parameter specifies target window/frame for the item

so u can actually target frames? didnt you say you couldn't in another post? or is it that you can't create one to target frames on the online builder?

ok, I've already created a menu using the online version, is there anyway I dont have to start over? i'm tired of doing that...

Current version of Tigra Menu Online Builder doesn't support targeting parameter so to target frame you'll need to modify manually the results you've created according to steps described above.

I have followed the process but one problem facing; from my menu i am missing one submenu for instance if i had 3 submenu under one menu now i have two, if i had 2 now i have one and i had one sub menu now i have none. Any idea.....why Pls answer me ASAP if possible. I thank you in advance.

Sounds like you replaced menu.js as per instructions in this post, but didn't add third parameter to each node so menu takes first subitem as that third parameter. Make sure all nodes have three parameters before subitems list.

Note that above is true for Tigra Menu v1.0 from demo #5. Tigra Menu v1.0 from other demos doesn't support targeting. The targeting is configured differently in Tigra Menu v2.x and in other navigation scripts.

Hi there, i am new to this and was checking out targeting frames. I too also followed your instructions earlier but I am getting the following error when i go to preview in Frontpage

line: 153
char: 3
error: 'this.container.pos.block_top' is nll or not an object

how do i fix this?

i have top frame, contents frame, main frame and footer frame. When clicking on a submenu in the contents frame, I am trying to get the Link .htm page to load into the TargetName Main.

I have added the 3rd parameters. My menu_items.js page reads as follows:

['Locations & People' null,{'tw' : 'Main'},
['Perth','Perth.htm',{'tw' : 'Main'}],
['Sydney','Syd.htm',{'tw' : 'Main'}],
['Melbourne','Melb.htm',{'tw' : 'Main'}],
['Brisbane','Bris.htm',{'tw' : 'Main'}],
['Auckland','Auck.htm',{'tw' : 'Main'}]]

What am I doing wrong?

I've done this, but pages are opening in a new window rather than in the target frame...

Anybody have any Ideas? I'd be very grateful. Thanks!
