*gives up waiting on a reply in the Support Forum...*

What and where do I edit these stupid files so that I can add site links to the Jump Menu?

I've tried all sorts of things to get it to work, but nothing has been successful. Since I do not know .php well, it would be nice to have something around here which shows how to add hacks like this. There doesn't seem to be a section of the site here which has directions for modifying your scripts; though you have evidence that it can be done by viewing the demos.

What I want is to add links to other sections of our web site to the Jump Menu. Simply adding the HTML to the body.php doesn't cut it.

I have an example of what it should look like.

Unfortunately, it doesn't work.

How do I modify the gb.class (or whatever it is that needs to be changed) so that what I want it to look like actually works, too?

The Solution has been posted in this forum before. Please read posts and perform searches on topics.

Here is what you have to do:

1.) open /guestbook/lib/gb.class.php in your favorite ascii editor
and look for the Jumpmenu code. It starts around line 73

Replace http://www.mydomain.com/ with your homepage URL

2.) Now add a javascript function to the guestbook header
Search for the file header.php and add this


<script language="Javascript">
function urlJump(target,selObj) {
var optionValue = selObj.options[selObj.selectedIndex].value;
var isURL = /http:/;
var regMatch = isURL.test(optionValue);
if(regMatch == true) {
// -->

<body bgcolor="$VARS[pbgcolor]" link="$VARS[link_color]" vlink="$VARS[link_color]">

It works, I have tried it. for the other links though, you will not be using the "Go" button, as it is an auto-jump select type

I don't use it on my site, because I don't need it. I have the menu on the left for navigation
