Specific submenus for each menu item in dynamic menus



  Hi, All...

  To be specific I want a set of drop dowm menus with   year ->month->day wherin all the months have submenus which contain the correct number of days so I don't have to filter later. I'm doing the site in php/mysql, would a script be easier. I'm trying to use the Front Page layers/change properties/visibility/onmouseover stuff in front page but I can't figure out how to switch  the different day menus. Surely this is a common thing. I must be missing the info somewhere.

Well since FP is a WYSIWYG HTML editor and PHP is a server side language - two totally different things.  I still use FP a lot even thogh all of our sites use a lot of ASP coding.

I use www.udm4.com for a lot of our menus - Very easy to use and I think it is what you want

I don't mess with that too much in FP but this FAQ might help: http://www.timeforweb.com/frontpage/forum/forum_posts.asp?TID=5168&PN=1

Hi Corey,
 I'm weaning off of FP(toward php/mysql)  although I don't hate it as much as I did at one time. Wouldn't mind a javascript or php script which did the same thing . Actually the functionality isn't quite right either. The FP thing with layers does not seem to allow specific response menus for different choices on the source menu. I would have to string out all of the months on the page with a dynamic day menu for each. Would like to use dropdown box. I've already done the layering thing(even used dropbox inside the layer cell). It does not do quite what I want since the days drop box displayed is not different for the months with 28, 29, 30 and 31 days respectively. Even the examples on the link page are deficient in this regard unless I'm not reading right. Here is a page that has a nav bar which does what I'm looking for    http://www.nservices.com/ It utilizes FP functions but I think Java for this behavior. Not all of the source code  is visible :(  . Script would be great.

I grok the distinction. FP sinks one into asp by way of visual basicand I was talking about the whole M$ enchilada. I like php better although I'm much better in asp. I wrote www. irondragon-metalarts.com from stem to stern. it takes orders for steel art, figures any size, any metal, a variety of thicknesses and finishes. It keeps a runniung tally and reduces prices as the footage increases. I did it all in asp and fp using an Access database.My first programming since fortran in college( on a room sized mainframe) My second programming attack since school is this motel program.After swimming with chains on(M$/ASP) php using no predigested programming(fp) editor at all and MYSQL for database is a wonderful thing. FP not so bad if you aren't as dependent on it. Sometimes it can be pretty frustrating. Not that mysql is free from frustration. It took me quite a while  and some EE to halfway sort out the "  "  ,'    ' etc grammer differences between php & mysql. Silly me I thought they were a seamless integration. Thx for the link

went to www.brothercake.com to look at some real menus, Browser visible and all. A lot more sophisticated than I thought. Thanks again Corey.
