Adding a child to a child
Hi everybody,
I need your help please. I downloaded the UDM3 from this site and is already working on my webpage with the submenu and childs, but I want to add a child to a child and I really don't know how to do that. Can anyone please help me with the code?

You might want to check out our udm3 documentation here:


or the faq on udm3 here:


Otherwise, can you post a link to your site? I may be able to help you if I can see what you've got so far.

Hi bcarl314,
I don't have it on my web page yet because I have made a lot of chances to my menu and there's about 5 submenu options without information yet, so I don't want any visitor to go there and find out that there's nothing there. Can you tell me when can I load the menu so you can see it? Tell me also the exact hour so I can take it out again. Or if you have any email address where I can send you the files also, let me know please.

Hi again bcarl314,
I have loaded the menu until tomorrow, so please if you have time today, give a help with it.
On the menu go to the second option that says Vision and at the end you'll see the option curriculum with a child that says Program & Study. This is where I want to add a child to this Program & Study option.
Can you please help me?
I forgot to post the link to my website: http://www.issosua.com

I've taken a look at your site, and unfortunately, the udm3 code base does not support sub-sub menus. I'd recommend upgrading your menu to udm4. The udm4 system uses <ul> / <li> html to allow for unlimited sub menus.

Hi again bcarl314,

Thanks a lot for your help. Is there any documentation for the UDM4, so I can learn how to installed and make it work the way I have it now?
I need to know how to set the position of the bar and color.
And I can't find where the titles of the menus, submenu and childs are.

Hi Admin and thanks for your reply,
I've been searching on the manuals the option to change the position of the menu bar because I want to have it right where I have my bar menu on my web page. Can you please help me on this?

To position the menu, you can simply add the appropriate HTML where you would like the menu to display. Then in the udm-custom.js file, look for this code:


//navbar orientation
um.orientation = [
    "horizontal",    // alignment ["vertical"|"horizontal"|"popup"|"expanding"]
    "left",        // h align ["left"|"right"]
    "top",        // v align ["top"|"bottom"]
    "relative",    // positioning ["relative"|"absolute"|"fixed"|"allfixed"]
    "0.5em",        // x position ["em"|"ex"|"px"|"0"]
    "0.5em",        // y position ["em"|"ex"|"px"|"0"]
    "1000",        // z order ["0" to "10000"] (menu takes 20000 headroom)

You'll probably want the alignment to be horizontal and the position to be relative.

Hi Admin,
With the UDM3 I think i never had to do the HTML positioning stuff. Can you please send me an example because I'm kind of new on this and what I did with the UDM3 was totaly different.
This is my website in case you want to take a look at it and see where I have my menu right now. That's exactly where I want to position the UDM4.
One more thing: Do i have to make all the menu changes on every page in my website or there's a dinamically way to do it only by making the change in one file and have all of my pages changed?
