Thanks - will havbe a look round these and come back to ask questions if necessary and to access the smileys and settle up!
Have used the CSS menus site to experiment with a simple menu and, you're right, it seems very simple to use.
However, have a couiple of questions to ask them - whether I can have a menu that goes for 7 or 8 cells across rather than 4 cells and then dropping to another row below with the other 3 below as seems to be prescribed on their site - and then I shall try installing in the DW pages.
After this happens (tomorrow?) I will return here and settle up and do the smiley/rating thing!!
Hope thios all right,
Have yet to receive an answer. perhaps you may know:
My question was whether (when I load to DW possibly? Or before?) I can make a menu that runs horizontally for all 7 cells AND, if possible, is centred, AND is suitable for use with ipads and the like.
Hope this isn't a duplicate but I got interrupted in mid flow.
Don't think I explained myself very well.
The problem is with the construction of the menu. I used their template and made a drop down horizontal menu (dead simple, which is all I require) I aimed to make a menu with 7 or 8 horizontal cells in ONE ROW but the template as far as I can see, only allows me to type FOUR cells in (with text at 10px) beofre it dropped down to form another row for the remaining cells. I can't see any way to keep all cells in one row. Unless it is done when you transfer it to DW.
I had a look at the link you supplied, but had difficulty finding the demo to see how it works. I downloaded a cbdb menu which had 3 files in but wasn't very successful after that.
Found the css3 menu link that you sent earlier VERY easy to use but for this point about having one row. Also, their answers are VERY slow, am still waiting on them.
Don't know whether this screen shot will be clear enough, but you may be able to pick out the cells, 'News' Festival' 'Drama' etc
Don't know whether you got the email sent a few hours ago and whether you have any ideas based on it.
I await answer from CSS but think that they will be able to shed some light on the matter.
Have had another look at the lionk you sent but still finding problems with finding/viewing a demo
thanks for help.
I have now got all 7 cells in a horizontal line and the option of adding more.
You say 'drop' it into DW, but that is proving a problem.My aim is to replace the spry menu bar wih the CSS3 version. I tried copy and paste but that didn't work. I tried inserting the code in the code rather than the Design area, but not sure where to insert. Nor whether I had identified the right bit of code.
Can you tell me what I do after clicking the PUBLISH button in the css3 template. What happened earlier was a file appeared on my desktop called menu 01 to be opened in firefox. On doing that I see a page with the operational menu at the top. So what next please? Should I put any of the files that have come from CSS into the DW site?
Hope I have explained it sufficiently.
Wondered whether youhave had any ideas on the answer I sent yesterday evening. I am at a loss as to how to place the menu created into the DW site I have made and where it will replace the spry menu which started all this!
Sorry, don't know how to use pastebin, would dropbox be all right. Not that I've ever used that to send, only to pick up.
I've put the folders in dropbox, what do I do now, send you the pass detail? Many apologies for ignorance.
Sorry. Failed. Clicked yellow folder icon with rted tick placed left of title. Nothing happened. Double clicked and folder opened but can't see any GET LINK option.
Hold everything! Found it. Only hope I've saved the right files???
Think the right stuff now on dropbox. It's a folder of the material from CSS3 ......I hope.
I am VERY sorry, you are being very patient, but I am extremely lost.
You say, look at your html: which html and where do I find? In the DW folder for my site (harburnvillagehall.org.uk)?
There again, which of the files I sent by drop box do I use to replace it? There seem to be a number of folders with css3menu files.
Yes, twice and a page with a menu on it appeared, but I tried to copy and paste it onto a site page withough success. It appeared as an unformatted vertical menu
this is what appeared
Yep, but which of the CSS files. I have a host with roughly the same name (see drop box folder)
I can see :
css3menu full win set up
css 3 menu set up
css 3 menu 1 with arrows un, hsep, main bk and style inside the folder
Ditto the html file. Is that the one I senrt a picture of, or one called simply html?
Don't know whether you got muy reply that I just might be getting someway nearer (???) I had opened the html file in DW and got somthing like the original horizontal menu. I copied it to anothert of the files on the site, but here the horizontal menu became a central vbertical menu in some jind of courier font.
Is there progress???
I have put a word doc with the code in dropbox. I see a lot of <a> around. So I removed </a> and replaced with </> Still the pasted version was centred and vertical.
I tried removing the whole thing (</a>) but still the same result.
By the way, it's only when paste the copy of the horizontal menu that it goes vertical
Just to check, what I am doing is opening the Menu3css dated 01 14 in dreamweaver, I see a fully working horizontal memnu. I copy in the normal way and paste onto an existing page in my local files, but with the effect you can see in the drop box word doc pages.
Again, displaying ignorance. I have the file (At least I think it's the one - its called menu01 14css3prj.html) in a local folder of an unpublished experimental site. I have copied it to drop box, but suspect you want it put somewhere else, or that you are after aniother file.
I am going to want it on virtually all of the pages on the site.
Presumably if it works on (say) the index page, I can then copy and paste into the other pages needing to have it. is there any quick way of doing this?
The site is already live and can be accessed via harburnvillagehall.org.uk/index. Should I put a copy of this page into dropbox, or can you take it from there?
As I have said before, you are very patient!
Wondered whether you have had time to conside the reply sent a few hours back. Thanks,
Thanks a lot, will wait on an answer when convenient.
Have you got all you need now?
Not quite sure what this below, from yiour reply, means:
If the question times it??
Can't remember whether you wanted the </a> in or out. If out, do you want </> left in?
Found that I had put wrong links in so I've had to switch the menu. Hope that doesn't affect your work.
Here you go.https://www.dropbox.com/s/mhmlysojrc3115m/justanswer-customer.htmlIf it doesn't work let me know. You may have to change a directory location.
And don't touch any <a> or </a> tags. You will break your links.
Thanks. received an html file with a menu on.. It is showing as a vertical menu with all the second and third levels showing. A smaller point is that it appears above the photos (my fault, I should have given the location. It can be seen on, say, the NEWS or SWRI pages and is in the lighter area below the photos)
Don't know whether a screen shot will explain better: Screenshot 2014-01-22 15.35.26.png
By the way, the result appeared when I took it into DW and opened. Mind you, it was the same when I opened it by double clicking.
Hoping you may be able to shed some light on the latest proble..
not hassling though, you've had enough to put up with!
Wondered whether you have had any ideas on the horizontal menu.
Would like to get the site up and running fully again.
Haven't heard anything for a day or so. Hope to get some advice very soon. Thanks.
Think I have sent the right one. It's in a folder marked Menu 01 14 CSS3pri_files
Was that the correct file/folder please?
Was that the right file please? Are you any closer to a solution?
Hoping to hear from you but I imagine we're into the week-end. Thanks,
Rather lost track of the state of the enquiry. Are you going to be able to deal with the probklem do you think? It seemed that progress had been made but I may have mis-rtead the situation.
Hoping to hear, one way or another,
Still had no answer. If it's not possible to go any further, please, please, let me know and I'll try to get help elsewhere. Had thought we were nearing a resolution.
Thanks for rapid reply. - I think I see what you are driving at.
Any chance you could give me a step by step. For instance, is a directory the same as a folder. What do you mean by changing the address in the html.
I didn't do this as far as I am aware when sertting up the spry menu that is there at the moment or is that irrelevant? There again, maybe I did???
You say you have sent a page, is this in dropbox or where please?
Looking at a preview of the menu I have cfreated, there are one or two alteations I'd like to make and a possible addition later. Wil;l this be feasible after the menu is in place or will it be a similar problem please?
Also not sure what this means:
The comments are the totally English looking bits and we'll start with .
More problems I'm afraid. Put in that link https://www.dropbox.com/s/mhmlysojrc3115m/justanswer-customer.html
but the folder that came up said latest in dropbox was 6 days ago.
Also can't make much of this (copied from your reply)
I'll put spaces in the tag so you get the idea if what to look for. is the end
