Installation

  1. Download the plugin and upload it to the /wp-content/plugins/ directory. Activate through the ‘Plugins’ menu in WordPress.
  2. Download the Free XtremeDockMenu and copy the content of the archive in wp-content folder. (e.g: “http://www.yoursite.com/wp-content/flashtuning/xtreme-dock-menu”)
  3. Insert the swf into post or page using this tag: [xtreme-dock-menu]. The default values for width and height are 580 200. If you want other values write the width and height attributes into the tag like so: [xtreme-dock-menu width="yourvalue" height="yourvalue"]
  4. To configure the dock menu general parameters use the dock-settings.xml. For individual dock menu items use the dock-contents.xml file. (tooltips, image path, image link and more)
  5. If you want to use multiple instances of Xtreme Dock Menu on different pages. Follow this steps:
    a. There are 2 xml files in wp-content/flashtuning/xtreme-dock-menu folder: dock-settings.xml, used for general settings, and dock-contents.xml, used for individual items.
    b. Modify the 2 xml files according to your needs and rename them (eg.: dock-settings2.xml, dock-contents2.xml)
    c. Open the dock-settings2.xml, search for this tag < object param="contentXML" value="dock-contents.xml" /> and change the attribute value to dock-contents2.xml .
    d. Copy the 2 modified xml files to wp-content/flashtuning/xtreme-dock-menu .
    e. Use the xml attribute [xtreme-dock-menu xml="dock-settings2.xml"] when you insert the dock menu on a page.
  6. Optionally for custom pages use this php function: xtremeDockMenuEcho(width,height,xmlFile) (e.g: xtremeDockMenuEcho(580,200,’dock-settings.xml’) )

Remove the Flashtuning.net logo

If you donít want to have the Flashtuning.net logo on the bottom left corner, you’ll have to purchase the commercial package. You’ll also have access to the fla file. After downloading the commercial archive, overwrite the swf file from the /wp-content/flashtuning/xtreme-dock-menu directory.
