    You can enter any name you like, for example enter "menu":

    Save menu name

    So you'll have menu.html file and "menu-files" folder with all menu files.

    Generated files

    2). You can add javascript popup menu to a single page or to many pages using Shared Borders, Include Page or Dynamic Web Template so that you won't have to add it into each page separately.

    Insert a popup menu to many pages using Dynamic Web Template in FrontPage

    - Start FrontPage and open your website. When the website opens, it should look like this:

    Open website in FrontPage

    - To create the Dynamic Web Template you should do the following things:
    Create a new folder in the root of your website, for example "menu". In this folder create a new Blank Page and name it menu.dwt.

    Dynamic Web Templates

    - Now you can add a menu in Dynamic Web Template. Open menu.dwt page (double-click menu.dwt in Folder list window) and switch to the Design view mode. Decide where you would like the popup menu to appear in your page. Click in the spot you want the code to appear in and type the phrase: your code

    Dynamic Web Templates add menu

    - Open the generated in Vista Buttons menu.htmlpage in any text editor. Copy all code within the following tags:

            ...
          <!-- End Vista-Buttons.com -->

    - We will now be inserting the JavaScript code into the body section right where we typed the phrase in the previous step. To do this, switch to HTML View.

    - Go to the "Edit Menu" with FrontPage and select the "Paste" option to paste the menu code that we copied to the clipboard earlier. Since the phrase we typed was highlighted, it will be replaced when we paste the code in.

    - To display the mouseover state images correctly you should change vbImgPath parameter. Find the following code
    var vbImgPath="menu-files/"
    and change it to
    var vbImgPath="menu/menu-files/"

    Change path prefix in FrontPage

    - Now you should copy the "menu-files" folder into the same folder with your menu.dwt page.

    Copy menu files in FrontPage

    - Select the Preview mode to display the menu.dwt page live (in Internet Explorer). Notice that your mouseover images can be not displayed when you hover over menu items in the Preview mode. It is normal. You'll see all images when you open index.htm page in the Preview mode.
