View Full Version : help with chromemenu

03-08-2008, 01:56 AM
I successfully installed chromemenu and the only problem I have is that the mouseover.gif isn't showing. (it should be a darker metallic). Here's the relevant section of my css file:
.chromestyle ul li a:hover{
background: url(chromebg4-over.gif) center center repeat-x; /*THEME CHANGE HERE*/
Here is the site: www.astdgoldengate.org/indexNewMenu.html

Can anyone tell me what I'm doing wrong?

is the image (chromebg4-over.gif) in the same folder as your css file?

if not, you have to change the image path so that the image path is relative to the css file not the html page.

yes, it's right where it should be! I'm befuddled! Do I need to change anything in the css code to point to it?

hmm... try adding the absolute URL (http://www.astdgoldengate.org/chromemenu/chrometheme/chromebg4-over.gif) and see if that works.

Thanks. I tried that and it still doesn't work. I reloaded the graphic and the css and the html (several times!) Even tried changing the gif to a png for no particular reason:
"...background:url (chromebg4-over.png) center center repeat-x;..."

Still no joy.

Also, now the menu bar is showing a white rectangle at hover. Yesterday it just didn't change to the 'over' gif but didn't change to the white rectangle. This is making me crazy!! Any more ideas???
