1) Script Title:
Chrome CSS Drop Down Menu (v2.5)

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

3) Describe problem:
I have copied the code and everything, edited the theme up but whenever I preview the page the drop downs are not working. I need the drop down menu to work inside a bunch of tables. Whenever I preview and highlight over the menu items, the rollover effect works fine, however the drop down doesnt come up NOR does the little down arrow .gif file appear next to the drop down menu items. I have had issues before with dreamweaver when I attached as JS file to the .html file. Is this a normal DW issue? I use ADW CS4.

Here is my page code:


<html>
<head>
<title>Template</title>
<meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=iso-8859-1">
<script language="javascript" type="text/javascript" src="source/chrome.js" ></script>

<style type="text/css">

What do you mean by preview? Do you mean in a browser or in the design mode of DW? If in a browser and your working locally is the js file in a folder called source from where the file is saved or if working from ftp/ a live site is the js in a folder called source from there the file is being called? If it is live please post a link.

When I say preview I mean whenever I preview it in browser not DW. The site is not live so there is no link. Would it help if I made it live for you?

Did you upload the "source/chrome.js" file? I made that mistake sometime ago so I thought I'd bring it up. Also, you must have the source files in the exact same folder as they are in your hard drive. Sometimes, people change the folder names and locations after they upload files to the server.

I'm no expert in programming so I can't help you too much but sometimes we do make stupid mistakes...
