Support Case Month: March 2013
I want to know if this is possible with your menu program.
I built a sliding menu. I placed it in a DIV. Then I linked the menu to many different anchors. When you click an item in the menu it goes to that item BUT the menu floats to the bottom of the page? I want the menu to stick at the selected anchor, so the menu is lined up, side by side with that item. Is this possible? and if yes, how do you set that up?
Also, the floating menu goes behind my main nav, and it also was made with your program. I read about the z_index but it says to leave it a 1000? How can I make it go over the nav?
Please let me know.

I am afraid there is no way to have the menu always appearing next to the anchor of what you clicked. Still, there is something you can do to make it look better in some cases.
Currently the menu always stays in the exact same place where you positioned it, relative to the browser window.
If you set the menu to be “Advanced Floating” then you can have it stick with the page until it reaches the top of the window and then float there until you reach the end of the page. Since when you call an anchor the page is automatically scrolled to put it at the top of the page, this will work in most cases. It will not work for the last part of the page that never reaches the top of the window. So this will give you a partial solution to the problem. Also note however that this requires that you purchase the Advanced Floating Add-in, so it is up to you to decide if it is worth the cost.
Regarding the z_index, where did you see that you “have to leave it at 1000”? You can change it as you wish! And if you want the floating menu to be on top, simply make its z_index bigger than the z_index of the other menu.
