Yes, but it won't be responsive.:)

I can't hear what I'm looking at.
It's easy to overlook something you're not looking for.

Makes great CSS menus for your VSD site though even if it's not responsive. :)

Yes, you can but ... If you like a horizontal menu bar, your submenu eps drop down vertically and if they go over any content in you we page then the boo tons will not work, and won't be readable. I also had a hard time getting it to work, but that could just be me I'm only a hobby web builder. Other wise follow the instructions given on I this site, that being said I had to add the files to the host, in both file form and the folder in order for my pages to work. I did not like the way it worked so I went back to my old buttons. If they add horizontal submenus then this will be great for my site.

Can you share a link to a page where the menu is horizontal and the sub-menus are horizontal?:) I really need to understand the design your after.

I think what you need to do here is 'right-click' the HTML box you put your menu code in, then select 'Arrange' and then select 'Bring to front'. This will put your menu on top of any content that is under it. Your menu buttons will show and will work fine.

Well yes. You have to add the menu files to the site. You can do this by adding them to VSD and letting the program upload them for you, or you can upload them to your server manually. In either case there may be a folder and/or sub-folder with files that need to be added. Then Menu Builder shows the directory to you where these files/folders exist so it's really not that hard to upload. The menus look great too!

Let us know if this answers your questions or if you need more help. :cool:

What are the actual steps one should use to add the menu to VSD? It's not flash, like the old approach. Is it html?
Thanks.
