    How do you center the menu on a page? I have adjusted every setting that I can think of. I am using a wordpress site.

    Thank You,

    • Jamie

      • Flashtuning

        The site looks nice, the menu is already centered as I can see on that page.

        • jamie

          Thanks for the reply. I did figure it out, I should have reposted.

    • Flashtuning

      See your previous msg reply.

    • Flashtuning

      You have to put the dock menu shortcode in a container div

      <div id="d-menu">[xtreme-dock-menu]</div>

      Then go to your css file add this attribute to the div:
      #d-menu{width:960px;margin:0 auto;}

        I’m lost. Where do I get to the Dock Menu to change content? I don’t have a xml editor that I am aware of. I use Mac Lion OS X 10.8.2 and Safari 6.01 I am ready to give up but it looks so great.

  2. verity moulder

    hi i am trying to add the tool tip that is present on the dock menu to the main image so that it will ask the users to click on the image.

    We have tried to do this in existing XML. Are you able to give us a shortcut.



    • Flashtuning

      Hi, all the tooltip settings are inside the settings xml file ( the ooltip properties group ). To set the tooltip text for each image edit the text node for each image inside the content xml file.

    I purchased a version of X-Treme Zoom Menu XML AS3 (Commercial), but the folder it is in is called ‘FTZoomMenu_AS3’. So my first question is is this the correct version that I am using? Secondly I have set it all up, but the images on auto scroll appear to shudder with no mouse interaction. How do I resolve this?

    Hello. How can I Add menu to text widget

    • Flashtuning

      Like any other Flash object if you’re widget does not have restrictions for swf files. Download and test some free product versions from the Free Files area on our site.

  5. Super

    I cannot find the option to make the background transparent.

    Please help.

    • Flashtuning Support

      Go to wp-content/plugins/xtreme-dock-menu folder and open xtreme-dock-menu.php

      At line 53 change the wmode property from window to transparent. Save the file and refresh the page.

      $xtreme_dock_param = array("quality" =>	"high", "bgcolor" => "",
       "wmode"	=>	"window", "version" =>	"9.0.0", "allowfullscreen"	=>	"true",
       "scale" => "noscale", "salign" => "TL", "allowscriptaccess" => "samedomain");


      • Super

        Thank you. It do works now. : )

    Hello. I must be missing something. I see the shortcode but how do I attach images to the dock?

    • Flashtuning Support


      Copy your images to the images folder, then open dock-contents.xml file and make sure you got the right path for each picture ( verify the src attribute). If you want to insert more images make sure that each one is between < menuItem > < / menuItem > tags.

      <media	type="image"	src="images/tp2.png" link="" target="_blank"/>
      <text	bkgndAlpha="90"	bkgndColor="0x333333">
      <![CDATA[<p><font color="#FFFFFF" size="11" face="verdana">This is the all-new <br/><b>X-treme DockMenu</b> <br/>from <font color="#FF6600"><b>FlashTuning</b></font>!</font></p>]]>

    Hi there – I need the descriptions or the tool tip to be visible without rollover – is this possible?

    So that while the movie is automatically playing, the descriptions will come up without user interaction.

    Is this possible? I’ve been messing with the xml but can’t see to get this to happen – I’ve edited the tool tip and the description properties but can’t seem to find a way to have either of them displayed. They appear when moused over, but I need this to happen without that.

    Any ideas?

    I’ve been tweaking this dock menu all day long and I can’t seem to eliminate the gap on the far left of the menu. I would like the menu to start out all the way to the left, but I can’t figure out how to do it.

    Please help!

    You can see it here: http://www.ywamoxford.org/homenew

    I’ve tried “startingPosition” but that doesn’t seem to change anything. Is it not working or is that not what that value accomplishes?


    • FlashTuning Support


      The dock menu needs some buffer zones, left and right – when it’s horizontal. Otherwise, because of how the code works, the images would zoom off-screen.
      If you’re ok with that, you can modify the code to not use buffer zones, by simply making sure menuBPadding and menuEPadding are never anything but 0 (comment the instructions where you see them modified).

      Best regards,
      FlashTuning Support

      • Andy


        I too am trying to remove at least some of the left hand padding, and, have tried to remove and/or edit the menuBPadding and menuEPadding. I’m looking in the dockMenuMC.

        Is this the correct place? Maybe I’m being thick, but it seems to have no effect. I’m working with the comercial AS3 version.

    I have a problem (only with IE) with WordPress and sub menu … when they develop they appear “under” the X trem Dock Flash menu.
    Is there a solution to change something like “order” or “z Index” ?

    I heard there is an issue between flash and javascript …

    Thanks for your help


    • Flashtuning Support


      Go to wp-content/plugins/xtreme-dock-menu folder and open xtreme-dock-menu.php

    Dear FT

    I had bought personal version recently.I would like to add sound on event of mouse over on images.

    Can u explain how to add sound on images?

    Thanks in advance,

    Rajesh Prabhu

  11. Joe

    Dear FT,

    Nevermind, I discovered I had the ‘totalWidth’ in the settings.xml set differently from the ‘width’ in the AC_FL_RunContent parameters. It’s fixed now.

  12. Joe

    Dear FT,

    I downloaded the free version and have successfully integrated it into my site. However I notice one thing: if I have more images than will fit into the window size I allot for it, it doesn’t account for that and I end up with images hidden off the right hand side of the app.

    Is this problem just in the free version? If not, do you have a solution that will handle this situation. I am building this for a photo artist who wishes to continually add new images.

    I’ve just bought X treme Dock Menu, congratulation it’s working fine.

    But I want go forward by using lightboxe with it, I saw your explication in the FAQ but unfortunaly I’m working with WordPress and all option need to write code in HTML page … How can I procede ? Is there a special code for the URL link ine the XML ?
    I’m already use the “Lightbox Plus” plugin in my WordPress.

    Thanks for your help


    • FlashTuning Support

      Hi Eric,

      I’m not really familiar with lightbox plus, but if it’s using javascript calls, all you need to do is place the calls inside the link attributes (menuItem tag inside the content xml file – “javascript:lightboxfunction(); void(0);” should be the format).

      Email us if you still have questions.

      Best regards,
      FlashTuning Support

    You’ll have to delete and not use the AS2 version you have purchased after we’ll send you the AS3 version.

    I would like to be able to dynamically change the menu. I have 8 buttons and 8 sets of xml contents and settings documents. When some one clicks a button I would like to reload the menu and use a different set of xml files. I’ve tried a few things but it keeps reloading the same menu. Help appreciated.

    • FlashTuning Support


      You will need to modify the xmlSetupName and xmlContentName variables before you init the new dockmenu.

      Also, remember to remove the contentXML property from the settings xml file (it will overwrite xmlContentName).

      Best regards,
      FlashTuning Support

      • Tony Terrana

        Thanks. How do I init the new docmenu

        • FlashTuning Support

          There should be a init (use this to also load the xml files) or initDock function (use this if you plan to set all the properties using action script and avoid using xml files).
