    How do you do yours?

    Say you have a large site, with 4 main sections, each section has many subsections and in those sections you have lots of technical documents...

    Thanks

    I'd use expanding menus. The 4 parent (main) categories, which expand individually to display their sub-categories. Clicking a sub-category will list (in the page's body) the contents of that sub-cat.

    I did something similar, only for products instead of documents for a university assignment. If it's up, you can have a look on http://hwulex.no-ip.com/cycleking/index.php

    Javascript expanding/drop menu's are nifty, IMO.

    However, doing the javascript is hard - so I like a nice program to do it for me, such as Xara Menu Maker, lol.
    PHP Code:
    $s = new signature();
    $s->sarcasm()->intellect()->font('Courier New')->display();

    you can do expanding menus using just CSS now (with a little bit of javascript to fix crappy IE). You'll be able to see this in the next release of Hexus
