  • vbMenu help

    Apologies if these questions are 'simple'....

    1. How do change the buttons on the vbmenu? I need to add and remove.

    2. When I click on 'search' or 'blog' in the menu nothing happens.

    3. The dropdown menus don't work!

    Any help appreciated!

    1) You would need to edit the navbar template and edit the HTML that creates the individual links.

    Styles & Templates -> Style Manager -> %YOUR STYLE% -> Edit Templates (on All Style Options Dropdown).

    2 & 3) This usually signifies a Javascript error. Try this on a new style with no parent. If it works than someone in your customized style is causing a Javascript conflict. You would need to resolve this conflict. Modern browsers have tools that tell you where the error is occurring. This would be your first step in troubleshooting.

          Thank you so much for your efforts...really appreciated!

          BTW, that IE error above says 'line 996' 'char 6'...sorry, the previous post was a typo
