    Default RE: Building menu

    Hi,<BR><BR>This is a pretty trivial task and can be done with either a database solution or a delimited file using FileSystemObject.<BR><BR>Going with a FileSystemObject approach you could have a file that has Menu name on one line and link URL on the next and so on. If the menu system is simple this will work fine. You could have a file for each menu. Keeping the menu up to date can be done with a simple web interface that reads the file into a textarea in a form and allows editing to be saved back to the file.<BR><BR>The database solution can be much the same only the menu item name and URL are held in the db instead.<BR><BR>I&#039ve used both and would say that if you have a simple menu system the FileSystemObject might be prove to be less of a server overhead.........<BR><BR>I&#039m sure some of the gurus who read this might suggest it&#039s a little crude but it works a treat...<BR><BR>Dave
