    Hi support

    I'm designing a new webpage and need to have a nested menu showing submenus horizontal with only 1 line like this:

    Rootmenu1    <Rootmenu2>    Rootmenu3    Rootmenu4
                            SubMenu1  SubMenu2 SubMenu3 ect...

    Is this possible to do/change on your existing menu-modules? If so how?

    I have found a javascript and CSS file that does this exactly - if the above is not possible - can I then put in my own  menu-code and make this work with the pages in an easy way? You can see how I would like the menu to apear here: http://www.dynamicdrive.com/style/csslibrary/item/jquery_drop_line_menu/

    I of course prefer to custom design your allready existing menus to to what I want. But please help me out.

    Thanks, Jan

    I found out how to change the behavior of the child items on the menu, so that they display horisontal instead.

    thanks anyway.

    Yes I can!

    1. Edit menu
    2. Choose Layout in the settings and EDIT the DefaultGroupSettings (Default child item settings)
    3. Change the text: Auto, Vertical,0,0... to Auto, Horizontal,0,0...

    That should show the submenu horizontal and not vertical.

    Best regards, Jan
