View Full Version : Slashdot not working with onLoad

08-07-2007, 05:02 PM
1) Script Title: slashdot menu

2) Script URL (on DD):http://dynamicdrive.com/dynamicindex1/slashdot.htm

3) Describe problem: The site I am currently working on uses a mouseover image restore for the buttons on the top menu. I am trying to set-up the Slashdot menu as a left menu. The Menus will not collapse/expand if i have in the code:

<body onLoad="MM_preloadImages( IMAGENAMES....

If i take the MM_preloadImages part of the code out, the site will work fine, but I am being required to have the mouseover function for the top menu. Any ideas?

That is probably because MM_preloadImages() is overwriting sdmenu.js events. If so, it would need to be rewritten to addEvent/attachEvent rather than assign events directly, or perhaps a different sort of code for rollovers could be used. One that assigned events to the image tags themselves, rather than to their links might work out.

Thanks for the tip. as it turns out the pics don't need that preload script to rollover... so weird. working fine now. thanks
