Looks like some basic reading is in order, Juan. The short answer is yes, but I'd suggest looking at the readme files that come in the download, howtobuild.txt in particular.

Once you have a basic understanding of the menu, if you're then still having problems come on back.

Hi John, i have read howtobuild.txt but i cant find my answer...
Maybe i cant explain it very well... This, resuming, is add text(not the classic menuitem when the user do a mouseover in the item)
For example, i have a menu(horizontal in this case) with 7 menuitems and i like to add the current date and time IN the menu like simple text...

Well i think is simple but i dont know how ;-)

thanks, Juan

Much better this time, Juan. Now I understand. :)

A simple Javascript function would do the trick. Also, depending on the programming language you are using for your page, ColdFusion has a method, PHP probably does as well, etc.

You can also take a look here to see how Andy did it. Just view the source.
