Creating an IE-Only Database Driven Menu System With PHP, MySQL and DHTML - Conclusion
(Page 5 of 5 )

Who said building dynamic database-driven menus was hard? As you’ve just seen, it doesn’t take too much work to create a feature rich menu in Internet Explorer using PHP, JavaScript and some MySQL queries.

A menu similar to the one described in this article could be a great addition to your intranet… especially if it is database-driven. How about letting users link to some resources around your network? Or letting users post "sticky notes " under different menu headings… there are so many ways that a menu like this can be used to enhance any site.

If you’re just new to JavaScript or MySQL, then you may want to take a look at some of the books shown below.
