I'm using Konqueror 3.5.5 here and I can't quite reproduce the error
with the [+] signs.
The way its implemented, you don't actually have to click on the [+]
symbol, just any part of the line a [+] symbol is on. For example on
the Headlines, just clicking any part of that text should expand the
As for the menus, it is indeed a known issue, but a simple workaround
is to hold the CTRL button and either use the mouse wheel scroll DOWN
to shrink the text for the menus and then use CTRL + UP to increase
the size allows viewing the menus at any resolution. Tested just now
down to 320x240.
The same thing works on Firefox/Iceweasel but the mouse scroll
direction is reversed with respect to the change in text size.
Again if text is too small, just use CTRL + scroll wheel UP or CTRL +
'+'. For the menus popping up instead of down just use CTRL + scroll
wheel DOWN or CTRL + '-'.
Thank you for your suggestions I will keep them in mind as I continue
to explore alternative implementation methods for the vast amount of
information contained on cSounds.com
PS. CCing the Dev list because others might find the workaround

Hi David, just wondering if you got the code I sent you for the cross
browser menus. I have been having frequent problems with my emails being
caught by spam assasins thanks to my ISPs crappy security, so I wanted
to check whether you didn't get it or had just been too busy to reply.
Sorry for the list traffic to everyone else!

Sorry I've been so swamped lately I haven't even really had time to breathe....
To answer your question however, yes indeed I did get it and I thank
you very much. The menu system itself looks very nice.
One thing is that I tested it and it behaves somewhat like the
SourceForge menu in that if you drag the window right up to the menu
it will just truncate the menu past the window.
Although I'm interested in making the site more "modernized", I think
the current system of just having an older type of menu system in a
new window will provide the greatest compatibility across many
browsers, platforms, and screen resolutions for now.
That said, I am interested in making the menus look as snazzy as
possible and I will look into changing it after the release. I will
also try making variations on the wonderful example you sent me.
