i thought i understood but I come up with an error message, so i thought this the best place.
'background', ['1.gif', '#BAB38E'],
both of these come up with an error, can you please explain how to use a background image?
or, how to have no background so the menu shows through and the background becomes the image on the page ?
If you want to put background image in CSS you should use the code like this: background-image: url("mybg.gif")
If you're looking for graphical rollover effect you should upgrade to Tigra Menu PRO. You'll be able to specify HTML (text, images, etc.) for different states (mouseout, mouseover, mousedown) of menu item independently.
