expanding menu doesnt quite expand.

peresz / 2010-09-13 15:57:19   

so for some reason my Info menu is expended already, and is not hidden like the rest. why is this?

Vaska A / 2010-09-13 16:04:14   

Make sure you make a link of Indexhibit on the about page...


It works here.

The problem is a logic issue...but there is no problem.

When you arrive to the site you are on the "Main" page. The way that expanding menus work is that it will expand any section that has the 'active' page. Main, is the active page...

What you can do is hide the main page from being displayed in the index - but the page will still function just fine.

peresz / 2010-09-13 17:06:14   

so how do I hide it? and would it fix the "issue"?

peresz / 2010-09-13 23:45:21   

do i do it from the indexhibit online menu or should i edit index.html?

Vaska A / 2010-09-14 10:01:31   

Indexhibit doesn't have an index.html. Edit the main page in Indexhibit...in Additional Settings you can then hide it from showing in the index.

peresz / 2010-09-14 14:54:07   

not sure where is my main page in indexhibit menu...as well as where can i find these Additional settings..I tried editing "info" menu but that didnt help

peresz / 2010-09-14 23:49:05   

any solutions?

rickykappa / 2010-09-14 23:57:57   

not at this time from this side of the ocean!
good night... ;-)

peresz / 2010-09-15 17:16:16   

what about now?

Vaska A / 2010-09-15 17:23:13   

It's all there. You need to figure out which one is your 'main' page because you changed the name of it. Additional Settings are there if you click on them while editing a page.

peresz / 2010-09-16 02:27:29   

sweet. that pulled it off. now if i can only find out why is my background not working in Firefox, but does in IE...

Vaska A / 2010-09-16 02:28:40   

On which page?

swami / 2010-09-16 09:51:06   

hello, i've installed the expandingmenu.js and edited the index.php.
everything work, but when i go on the homepage
the section INFO is already open. i would it start closed as other section!

i've try to reload the js file and rewrite the code but nothing change.

thank you!!

arsondpi / 2010-09-16 12:09:21   

Find this in your js

  1. ¬†¬†¬†¬†/* hide items if not active */
  2. ¬†¬†¬†¬†if (items.is(".active") == false) {
  3.         items.hide();
  4.     }

and change to this:

  1. ¬†¬†¬†¬†/* hide items  */
  2.         items.hide();
swami / 2010-09-16 12:49:44   

yeah, thank you sooo much! :)

peresz / 2010-09-17 01:18:30   

Vaska, the background image on the main page

arsondpi / 2010-09-17 08:59:20   

css errors - start there...

peresz / 2010-09-17 20:52:24   

yea, apparently my css coding has 23 errors according to that site...though i dont understand what i have to change... the site works just fine in IE, but not firefox

arsondpi / 2010-09-17 23:30:55   

...did you move things around? I can only see the holding page of your host... here...

peresz / 2010-09-18 06:04:24   

yea, i changed the whole style.css

arsondpi / 2010-09-18 09:38:04   

well it seems that you just need to refresh the url of your image in the pre-nav area

peresz / 2010-09-18 16:11:42   

but the problem is not just with the image, its also with organization as well. in IE the site looks different. why would that be?

peresz / 2010-09-20 14:58:15   

any advice?

arsondpi / 2010-09-20 17:14:05   

not really. I don't like IE.
Although Indexhibit uses a separate style sheet for IE6 (ie.css) - maybe that's what causing this...

peresz / 2010-09-21 00:14:53   

yea, im using FF as my main browser, but check to see if it works in IE as well. should i just copy and paste text code from ie.css to style.css to fix this...?

peresz / 2010-09-21 04:33:45   

or is there something wrong with index.php, also may the problem lie in one of the 23 errors that W3C CSS Validator detected..?

Edited: No spam please.

rickykappa / 2010-09-21 06:58:45   

@peresz - 23 errors are enough to suppose that something must be corrected, don't you agree?
I also don't like IE, but first try to get rid of them and surely things will improuve...

arsondpi / 2010-09-21 07:15:22   

...oh you still haven't fixed the css errors?
I think the validator points exactly to what needs to be fixed.
Start by fixing your style sheet. It's important.

peresz / 2010-09-21 15:12:25   

ok, so i looked at the errors and got rid of most of the mistakes at style.css. leaving only 12 errors. but now the images dont show up at all...Also i have a feeling that i shouldve fixed errors in: URI : http://seredyak.co.cc, and not in URI : http://seredyak.co.cc/ndxz-studio/site/sample/style.css, which now caused even more problems. what am i missing here..?

blameme / 2010-09-21 15:57:12   

Dude, your images are there but you´re gonna have to scroll to see them, you have a 400 pixel padding and a 400 pixel margin set:

  1. #img-container {
  2. margin: 400px;
  3. padding: 400px;
  4. }

As far as fixing errors goes, you´re best bet would be to try and fix them all.

blameme / 2010-09-21 16:04:25   

oh and for some more info on the many why IE renders differently:

Read it, learn it, embrace the pain.

lantru / 2010-09-21 22:48:30   

I followed Ross Cairns instructions on how to create expanding menus (http://www.rosscairns.com/downloads/), but nothing's happening.

I get this error message when I try to view the expandingmenus.js file:


You don't have permission to access /ndxz-studio/site/js/expandingmenus.js on this server.

Additionally, a 404 Not Found error was encountered while trying to use an ErrorDocument to handle the request.

interestng link, but actually IE makes my page look better, plus the background actually works in there. FF is giving me trouble. so it seems i've fixed most of the problems, a few still remain, and im not sure what they are. here are some:

Property -moz-border-radius-bottomleft doesn't exist : 3px 3px
and where do i find URI : http://seredyak.co.cc that i have to edit which also has problems( see the W3C CSS Validator). Problems for this file include but are not limited to:

Value Error : background attempt to find a semi-colon before the property name. add it
Value Error : background Parse Error null
Parse Error ://seredyak.co.cc/files/backgrounds/Marta - 07_.jpg) repeat

arsondpi / 2010-09-22 10:11:33   

Read and search in your css for errors.

p.nav span#num is missing a } in the end
#position is not a valid property

And last but not least do not leave any spaces in filenames. Use underscrores or dashes instead.
For example, this http://seredyak.co.cc/files/backgrounds/Marta - 07_.jpg is not a valid url address.

You also have a broken image link in your pre-nav area. Fix it.

You need to do some more reading mate... ;-)

peresz / 2010-09-23 03:15:04   

so where do i find URI : http://seredyak.co.cc that i have to edit which has Parse problems?

arsondpi / 2010-09-23 09:57:13   

delete the background and rename the filename with no gaps and reupload.

Mikevb / 2010-09-27 13:04:20   


I also followed Ross Cairns instructions on how to create expanding menus.
However nothing is happening.

Is there anything else I have missed?

Mikevb / 2010-09-27 16:44:15   

I got it working!
