    Question Help Please on Cascade menu Javascript

    I am pulling my hair out over two issues using the cascade menu.

    First problem is that I cannot get the menu to be centered on the page...

    Second problem is that when I test the script on a blank html the drop downs appear below their menu column properly but when I add the script to a regular page... the drop down appears to the far right of the page impropperly...

    I am new to scripting... so please show solutions by exact example. Thanks*

    You can see a sample of the html at:
    http://www.wildlifespirits.com/test/sampleindex.html

    The css and js files for the menu can be seen at:

    http://www.wildlifespirits.com/test/CascadeMenu11.css
    http://www.wildlifespirits.com/test/CascadeMenu.js

    I'm pulling out hairs... Thanks*

    Question another issue

    I just noticed another negative issue... the menu fails to operate in Netscape 6.2 So if anyone has the answers to the previous post as well as making this operational for all browsers, please let me know...

    OR if you have a similar menu script that will function across all browsers and allow menu/submenu drop downs like I tired here... Please let me know... I am simply trying to add a nice navagational system to the top of this site.

    Thanks

    I was just going to point that out.

    These menus are not easy to work on unless you happen to find someone who has worked on the same menu or you can contact the author.

    My advice would be to move on to the next one, keep and looking til you find one that works or is easily modifiable. Theres so many to choose from its best to find one that works the way you want right off the bat.

    Having said that I'll post a few sites:
    http://css.alsacreations.com/xmedia/...horizontal.htm
    This is probably the simplest I have ever seen an was able to modify to my liking. Even managed get it hover in the top right of the window.
    With the help of this site:
    http://www.javascript-fx.com/navigation/Demo

    http://www.yxscripts.com/menuG5/index.html#examples
    This one has some very innovative menus plus theres a forum

    still need help...

    Thanks for the tips... but the one site is in foriegn language and the FX site I saw but bypassed because the script I want, he said he gave up on... I wasn't desiring floating menus becasue I have seen so many issues with them.

    I am hoping that someone out there has used a fixed menu drop down mouse over that allows sub menu that works on all browsers... and would share it with me...

    If you have ever implemented a menu like this please let me know... This is the final step for me completing the galery site.

    Thanks

    Thanks Bill,

    I think one of those will work... I tested in NS and worked there as well... I ran into tohers that said cross browser but failed anyway... Now I've made 3 menus so I hope this next will work as making these menus can be a royal brain pain

    I'm going to give G5 a try...

    Exclamation Close but still stuck near end...

    Hi,

    Ok I wne t and started using the g5 menu... I have the menu content done but got stuch near the end... the menu was left vertical and i wanted centered bar so I used their example to center and all of a sudden my menu was a centered bar but with invisibible background...

    Perhaps you could look at my post in the forum there and come up with a solution ?

    I know it is.
    At this point it would be helpful if there were a link to your current problem.
    I checked the link in your first post but I don't thaink thats it.

    I think you probably should have included one in your posts at yxscripts.
    It is much more likely to get a response if you do.

    Personally, I know very little about his cascading menus or the G5's
    I used one of his chained selects and was able to modify for my own use.
    Nevertheless I will take a look at what you got.

    http://www.wildlifespirits.com/test/sampleindex5o.html is the example page that centered the menu as a bar... but went invisible...

    http://www.wildlifespirits.com/test/highlight-style.js is the style file that centers it as a bar but makes it all invsisible...


    http://www.wildlifespirits.com/test/...t-styleSAVE.js is the style file that allows it all to be seen with its backgrounds... but places it vertical to the left...

    http://www.wildlifespirits.com/menu/sampleindex5n.html is the example of it when it is to the left... it's the way I wish it as far as menu is concerned, sub menus etc... but I want it as a hroizontal bar, not vertical to left.

    Thanks*

    filmkr-

    I have looked at it but can't say that I see anything really. I have a few suspicions but without spending a lot of time on it I can't say.

    What I always do is when I download a script or any thing like this, is always get it working first on your local machine or on your server space without making any changes to it such as entering your own data.
    Just paths and urls etc.
    Once its working make small changes and play around with it til you understand a bit better how it works. This makes things so much easier to work with in the future.
    Once you've done this then set it up for real.

    Unless you hear from the author a yxscripts then that would be my suggestion.

    I did all of that with exception it was left vertical and hen it chnaged to invisible when made to be centered... it must be a small issue with the style .js and I just can't pin it... and their forum gets no use nor answers... I did e-mail their host but no reply as of yet... shame

    Hello filmkr,
    You need to make following corrections :

    1) in .../sampleindex.txt :
    - mandatory in tag <body> you need to cancel ID="index" ;
    - only for design aspect you need to add following break space (<br>):
    <!--header HTML goes hier -->
    <center>
    <br><br><br><br>
    <a href=http://www.wildlifespirts.com"><img ......

    2) in .../CascadeMenu11.css :
    - mandatory for .menubar to change position: relative ; with
    position: absolute ; left: 100px; top: 20px ;
    - also only for design aspect you need to change for .bar and .barover
    the width to value " width: 150px; " .

    I hope that this can help you !
    Thank you for all information which I receive with this thread .
    Micky

    Giving it another look the menuG5.css file does not exist.
    <link rel=stylesheet href="css/menuG5.css" type="text/css">
    i.e http://www.wildlifespirits.com/test/css/menuG5.css
    Its 404
    Did you forget to upload or is it just the wrong path?
