View Full Version : Please help me about the "Smooth Navigational Menu (v1.4)"

06-13-2010, 06:15 PM
Hallo to you all. First of all i would like to say many thanks to all people that contributed with their scripts, in order to make this page the first and last web guide for virtual anything you would like to embed in your web page.

And now my problem, witch i would like you to share with me your knowledge.
I want to put the smooth navigational menu in my web page. so far so good. but i want to alter it a little bit, and instead of menus like "my company", or "communication", i want to put inside the menu, graphics designed in photoshop for example, something like a rollover menu like this:

<li><a href="#" onmouseout="MM_swapImgRestore()" onmouseover="MM_swapImage('eteria','','images/menus_test/eteria_over.png',1)"><img src="images/menus_test/eteria_down.png" name="eteria" width="118" height="32" border="0" id="eteria" /></a></li>

this is only for one menu. my problem is, that when i have a submenu below it, the downarrows appear, and i dont want that. i tried to disable them from the css like this,

position: absolute;
top: 12px;
right: 7px;
display: none;

the arrows dissapear but the black box that was previously containing them remains,

Can anyone tell me how to alter the java script for example a little bit, in order to disable the downarrows class?, in order for my menu pictures to be seen one after the other, without arrows between them.

Many many thanks for your time. I really hope that someone of you will give the answer i need... Looking forward your reply.

my friend i need a little more help form you...


if you see it with firefox it appears everything works correct.
but with safari, or chrome, or explorer, next to the second menu, a "not found image" image appear. i think there should be the down-arrow we previously disabled. can you figure you to disable it completely?

Did you just delete the image from the server or did you delete the code as well?

<img src="images/menus_small/egkatastaseis_down.png" width="119" height="24" border="0" />

If you just deleted the image from the server then remove that from your source code, if not than the JS must be generating the html not sure how to resolve that.

anyway, i made in photoshop i picture 1px x 1px and put it as my "down" image. the next menu image is slightly moved to the right but its ok with me, because we couldn't find any other solution.

thanks a looot bluewalrus for your precious help...!!!!
