View Full Version : Need help with Drop Down Tabs

09-18-2008, 10:45 PM
1) Script Title: Drop Down Tabs (5 styles) (I am using example 1)

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

3) Describe problem: I am unable to get the actual drop-down to work. I have made slight adjustments to the CSS (color and such), but nothing major. Also, the active page tab doesn't stay highlighted, which I believe it's supposed to. Can anyone tell me where I've gone wrong? The URL where I'm using this script is here:


Thanks for any help!! :)

Your page is missing the .js file reference in the HEAD section:

<script type="text/javascript" src="dropdowntabfiles/dropdowntabs.js">

Thanks so much! That was partially successful! I now get the drop-down working properly on the index page, but nowhere else! Also, the index page seems to be the one exhibiting an active tab color change. Any idea why only this page is working?


Thanks again!

Ah, I think I may have discovered the source of the problem myself. Stand by... :-)

Okay, problem solved with the functioning of the drop-down. I still can't get the active tab to appear active (with a lighter color). Is the script designed to do that? It seemed to me that it did, but I'm no expert. If someone could take a look, I'd greatly appreciate it!


Thanks once again. :-)
