_Blank link Parameter.
Maclain - 9/1/2002 at 07:55 PM

I have search your site and documentation for a simple example of a link that includes the _blank parameter.

Simple examples make things a lot clearer then the instructions I did find, what does this mean? Please show me a working example of what to include in the menu_items file and I can take it from there.

"This field may also be assigned three element array* to allow additional link related parameters. Those elements are:

0 - link itself as in example above
1 - target name that used for cross frame navigation. 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 item. Use it to additionally describe the item.
* - This feature is available from ver. 1.1 of Tigra Menu PRO. Contact the author if you need upgrade.

var MENU_ITEMS = [
['SoftComplex', ['', 'content_frame', 'Visit official site']],
]; "

['SoftComplex', ['', '_blank', 'Visit official site'], null],

The following is from my menu_items file. The SoftComplex link still launches in the the same window even with the _blank parameter.

['SoftComplex', ['', '_blank', 'Visit official site'], null],
["Rate Review", "rate.htm"],
["Promotions", "news.htm"],
["Locations and Hours", ""],

What am I missing?

Make sure you are using Tigra Menu PRO script.

You can find this configuration working fine at:

look at:

for code sample.

You were right! We were still using the old meun.js script. Now we have a new problem.

Is there a way to salvage our css and items file and use them with the Pro menu.js file? We have made some modification using a text editor to the files. We tried just moving the Promenu.js file over but we lose some menu item, colors change , and the rollerover behaves differently.

If you've created your original menu with online builder then you can just export it to Tigra Menu PRO configuration. If you haven't then you'll need to recreate your menu either manually or with online builder.
