I really like the horizontal menu that NTFS uses, especially getting a search box to appear direct from it, also the way that "search" and "quick links" uses a wipe effect when displaying the drop-down. Can I get someting like this for my site? - http/www.lincolnband.net - How's it done?

Please explain in simple terms - I am a novice.

There are 2 ways you can do this for your self.

1) Learn how to program, and read up on CSS and Javascript.

2) Buy VBulletin.

I suggest the first as it is more fun.

could also fudge the coding entirely as I would - make a small swf that has all the functionality and animation you need, then embed it in a layer higher than that of the rest of the page content, using the transparent background tag in the html
<param name = "wmode" value = "transparent">

granted, this way makes for more stuff to download, but the functionality is limitless

And people like me who have no flash are stuck looking at a page that has no way to navigate around it.

Flash, if used within certain limits, can make a site look pretty elegant. Sites made entirely with Flash or with huge pointless Flash animations all over the place, on the other hand, are just a pain.

You're the exception, not the rule.

Get flash. No Flash = no badgers!

SPeedY_B: could you email macromedia asking if they have a FreeBSD version? Same with you Netryder.

They have none for FreeBSD, thus i am unable to use it. Second, if you want all kinds of people to visit your site, you should make people like me the rule, and not an exception.

But that is up to you, for me alt + f4 is closer by than a Flash plugin for Firefox for FreeBSD, so its up to the site designer. Really, i lose nothing not having flash, no annoying adverts, no random music playing, no stupid advertisements and whatnot.

I was just pulling your leg.

Honestly, I'm not really into Flash myself. You've probably already noticed that since you've visited my site.

He'd actually get you a version of flash for FreeBSD.

If you were really desperate to get flash on FreeBSD though, you could try getting wine to run under the linux compatibilty binaries, and then getting fire fox for windows w/ flash running under that.

I get away from Windows for certain reasons, now you are saying i should run something so i can run windows apps?

No thanks buddy.

Hey EP! All good with me, applying for Microsoft MVP right now, should have done this a while ago.

Notifications don't work, I only found your response by coming back to hunt up some threads, if you want, give me your email address so we can keep in touch easier!

EP, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS

Been running around Quora lately, luv it there!
