View Full Version : Jim's DHTML Menu does not load

05-05-2005, 06:48 AM
I've given up trying to figure out why the toolbar doesn't load into the webpage. Please help, it's been a frustrating ride. The example.html is coming out correct (the way I like it) but somehow it won't load on our webpage. I've followed everything on the install instruction sheet.


What am I doing wrong????

Please, I hope you guys can make it work. Thanks in advance!!!

You've got at least one other script on that page (messages in the status bar). It probably is in conflict with the menu.

John-->> have loaded the toolbar but the arrows are not showing up. Is that another script conflict?
Please help--thanks!

More likely it is the occurrences of this in your config.js file:


Try using the absolute path for the images. Like:

rollover:http://www.geocities.com/skeetrfan/images/tri-down1.gif:http://www.geocities.com/skeetrfan/images/tri-down2.gifAs it looks like they are there.

Seems to partially work on the rollover part only. The toolbar arrows don't seem to still show.

Any more suggestions? Thanks, John for your help.

It looks like the menu is interpreting the colon in http: as the separator but still finding the image intended for the unhovered state and using it for the rollover state. I'd try rewriting the code as:


I've never come across this one before but, owing to the menu's current behavior, seems like it should work.

You just don't know how much time I've spent just making that work on the example.html. It's the reason the original code didn't start with http, but you're a genius!
Thanks for all the help--it now works perfectly fine!
