View Full Version : Help needed for Drop Down Tabs

02-18-2008, 12:56 PM
1) Script Title: Drop Down Tabs (5 styles)

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

3) Describe problem: I am new and not really a coder but like this functionality. I understood most (well nearly all needed) to set up the tabs. Only question I have is how do I use the downloadtabs.zip files. Do I upload them somewhere to use for my blog? Thanks.

ThinkI sort of understand the codes a bit more more.Can someone please help.
I am referring to here:http://www.dynamicdrive.com/dynamicindex1/droptabmenu_dev.htm

The first few lines are:
<script type="text/javascript" src="dropdowntabfiles/dropdowntabs.js">

* Drop Down Tabs Menu- (c) Dynamic Drive DHTML code library (www.dynamicdrive.com)
* This notice MUST stay intact for legal use
* Visit Dynamic Drive at http://www.dynamicdrive.com/ for full source code


<!-- CSS for Drop Down Tabs Menu #1 -->
<link rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" href="dropdowntabfiles/ddcolortabs.css" />

Please help me understand:

1) am I supposed to upload these codes (dropdowntabs.js)to somewhere? I uploaded to a googlepages account but could not get a url link to it at all.

2) am I supposed to upload these codes (dropdowntabfiles/ddcolortabs.css) as well? I managed to upload these to a googlepages account and can get a url link

After many trials, I still could not get this working. I would appreciate assistance from anyone to push this forward.

I am testing the codes in my testing blog which is structured the same as my running one- I just want to make sure I know all the pitfalls before putting them to my "live" one.

With the blog coding appended below, this is how the blog looks like:

As is obvious I cannot get any dropdown menu at all.:mad:
