Hiermenus Go Forth*, XXI:
Version 4.0.14 - The Complete Script (Full-Window)

Welcome to an emergency HM interim release.

The recent release of Netscape 6.1 has prompted us to publish minor updates to HM to support new behavior introduced in this browser.

[ In reality, this is the second "emergency" release after Version 4.0.13. However, the first one was posted just hours after 4.0.13 hit the Web, and retained the 4.0.13 numbering. The original 4.0.13 had a mistake in the way the "more" image was being rolled over. In NS4, instead of rolling over the image itself, the script was rolling over the image's containing layer's background. Same result but led to sticky menus. It was a simple pointer mistake but it passed unnoticed until Matthew Merkelson, ever vigilant, pointed it out. ]

Version 4.0.14 includes:

As always, there is no documentation other than that already presented in previous columns.
However, all the parameters used in the script are described in detail.
Just about everything you need to know about using the script has been published in Columns 36 to 42. Additional minor information has been included in the release columns (43 to 56), usually pertaining to an adjustment introduced in the particular release.

But before you click the above link, PLEASE READ THE FOLLOWING POINTS:

  1. Most of the mail still revolves around questions answered in the FAQ: HM FAQ. Please check these for a possible answer to your problem.

  2. We cannot provide additional instructions at this time. They will be forthcoming, along with detailed discussion of the code once Version 4 is rock-stable.

  3. The menu look and behavior in the download is only one of many possible look-behavior combinations. The parameters discussed in columns 36 --> 42 achieve menu customization. Please familiarize yourself with these.

  4. Several Version 4-related questions have been anticipated in a previous column.

  5. With the volume of mail regarding HM, a reply will probably not be possible. All problems reported, however, will be considered.

Now on to the 4.0.14 improvements.
