Website menu, where to start?

Recommended Posts

Hi All, I'm new to web programming in general and need some advice for a site that I'm trying to pull together. The best I can do is try to describe what I'm trying to do because I really have no idea of how to implement this idea.The primary purpose of the site is to be a blog with separate directories for different themes. I was hoping to have a navigation menu on the side of the site with sort of an archive list in which a user could select the article they wish to read by selecting their way through directories as displayed in the menu. I want to be able to just bring up the article without having to redirect to a different page or reload the current one when an article is selected.I would be putting this together with Dreamweaver, but have no idea what to build this element in (JScript, VBScript, or flash item?) Thanks for any advice or guidance!

Dreamweaver is fine as long as you only use code view and test the pages in a real browser. Flash is a bad idea for just a menu. VBscript is a microsoft-exclusive language and doesn't work in any browsers except Internet Explorer. Javascript would work. You'll need to make AJAX requests to to a server-side script if you don't want the page to be reloaded.

Javascript menus are awesome. Many are made with jQuery and there are many plugins. Apple is still not supporting flash (no matter how cool flash looks), so you may want to stay away from flash for now.
