  1. falkencreative, that way I would have only 1 file for all the various "slideshows" and include just the 1 file per page. Good idea, thanks!
  2. I have various "slideshows", sometimes multiple per page, but each type is standardized for all the effects, speeds, etc.
  3. Virtual, thanks...that makes sense, and it works now. I was just trying to cut down on some time/text. I was hoping to put the script functions for fade speed, type, etc in the CSS for a global way to change everything, but it looks like I'll have to do that per page.
  4. Kind of a generic question...I have a plugin that falkencreative recommended (and works great, btw) to cycle images on a website. Right now, I have the "coding" on each individual html file. I should be able to put this into my CSS sheet, right? I can't seem to get it to work/load properly when I put it into the CSS sheet. This is what I'm using on each individual html file and what I'd like to just put into my master CSS: When I remove the "style" portions of the code, it starts to stack the images but the script never runs properly. I'm still a noob at this, so g
  5. It has some issues loading in IE...it gives me these errors: Line: 47 Error: Expected identifier, string or number Line: 75 Error: Expected identifier, string or number Has anyone had this same issue in IE?
  6. Ahhh, I figured it out...it did have to do with positioning. Now to try and align them in a row.
  7. That's a very nifty plugin. It took me a while to figure out most of it, but I'm still stuck on a few parts. I think it has more to do with web design than the plugin itself, so here goes. How do I get the image/slideshow up in the top box (eventually spacing it so its kind of in line with the logo...a matter of fiddling, I realize) and how do I get three of these slideshows side by side with now spaces between them? I can only seem to get them to stack vertically and with spacing...the website is here and yes, I realize the images aren't attached so it just shows boxes for now and I'm
  8. Thanks again, falken. Is this a plugin that viewers would need to download/install before viewing those items on the page?
  9. falken, thank you for the advice and the fix, it worked perfectly. Slowly, slowly I am learning
  10. Hey there, I'm finalizing some web design here and I can't seem to figure out how to add some images that will rotate to the top portion of the page. Is there a way to put an image box up there that would cycle through a set of images (without using flash)? What would be the best way to go about doing this? Here is a link to the page I have at the moment. http://staticelectricityman.com/caa/cgi-bin/Main.html
  11. Well, I almost have the menus working properly. It seems like the new menu overrides part of the horizontal menu (the home button) while also pushing the body down below itself. Here is the link again, I've updated the work: http://staticelectricityman.com/caa/cgi-bin/Main.html The link takes you to the main page so you can see the horizontal bar as it should be but if you click Project List and then Residential, you can see the new vertical side navigation bar and how it obliterates the HOME button and pushes everything down. How do I make the body not bump down and how do I fix the n
  12. Susie, I agree and I've convinced "the committee" to abandon the previous idea. Thank you for the excellent suggestion and I also hadn't noticed that if my mouse strayed too far from the field that it would default back to the top "page" of the navbar. I think I'm going to try to implement a toolbar on the side similar in style to the top bar and make a separate css for it to use in the appropriate pages.
  13. virtual, thanks! I already am running into browser troubles. I will take a look at that link; I'm just trying to hammer down one bird at a time
  14. Susie, that's kind of what I was originally thinking...and I'm open to suggestions. The way the page is set up seemed to favor the hoverpage style. For example, the Residential page would take you to a generic page with that crazy hovernavbar but the Residential projects we do has far too much information to contain on one page. For example, under Residential we would have Remodels, Additions, Historic Preservation, Standard Plans, etc...each of those subsections would contain images and projects we've worked on. I do agree it seems a little over the top.
  15. This is what I have so far (don't bother clicking the links). http://staticelectricityman.com/caa/cgi-bin/Main.html The navigation bar/menu works the way I'd like it to work, but I'd like to add a second navigation bar for a few pages (like the Residential page, for example) like this one right here: http://www.cssplay.co.uk/menus/page_menu2.html Obviously, I need to change up the images and all that but I can't seem to get it to align on the left with a straight cut and paste. It sticks to the end of the current navigation bar. I'm thinking if I use a separate css for this menu,
  16. Wickham, yes, I'm being careful with the two. I'm just wondering why the tutorial had me use a div...what was the purpose of using the div and what is the difference between the ways you've suggested and using a div? Susie, I will try to put something up. I'm using a few different navigation bars and doing some research...sounds like I can use a separate css for just navigation bars and plop them in on the necessary pages?
  17. Hmmm, I changed/goofed something up with this. Now its not displaying properly across the top at all. I used this navigation bar following a tutorial, so I'm not sure why they did what they did. In the html, they are using a instead of . What is the difference between the two? Would it be helpful if I posted the complete code for the css and html? Its not too crazy as yet.
  18. Well, I thought so...not sure why this is written two different ways...does it matter? ul#menu { width: 103%; background: #A6C7E3; float: left; } #menu ul { list-style: none; margin: 0; padding: 0; width: 12em; float: left; } Basically, I would be changing the #menu to #menu-horizontal (and then making the appropriate changes in the html file) but does it matter where the ul is located or if there is a space or not?
  19. Ahhh, yes...it does. The way you have shown I can put that in a main css so I don't have to do two different css (one for the pages with only horizontal bar and one for pages with both). I will give this a whirl, thanks!
  20. I'm not sure if this is possible. Is it possible to have two different navigation menus? One covered by the css script (which I have working at the moment) and another in the html file? What I have is a navigation bar running horizontally across the (near) top of my page and I would like to add a vertical navigation bar on the left side for some of my pages while keeping the main navigation bar at the top. Is this possible?
  21. Well, I got it to work the way you suggested. I just started it all over again and did it in notepad and it seems to work just fine in Firefox, but the top portion is missing in IE. I have no idea why it didn't before, I must have been missing something. Thanks for your help! Now, its on to the navigation buttons / dropdown menus.
  22. Yeah, for some reason using the images for both makes it so FF only shows the top image while IE only shows the bottom image. I'm updating my browser to see if that's the reason why its all wonky. However, if someone else is running an older version of FF or IE, I wouldn't want that to be an issue. I may just have to simplify if I can't get this to work I guess. Is there a way to insert 2 images in the "top bar" while making the bottom portion a background color? The reason for that is that I'd like to have a continuous bar (thus the repeat-x) of one color for whatever browser display
  23. Yes, I've removed the two backgrounds...I was trying to find a way to put an image up there with the background (kind of like the nice frog on this site with the green bar...except I would want the green bar to be about 300px high and run from left to right and not centered at all). I've been fiddling with some DOCTYPEs at the top of the code to try to get it to show up equally in firefox and IE, but the only way I can get both colors to work is to not put up any DOCTYPE and then it only works in IE for some reason. I also had to just use a default background-color for the body: html
  24. OK...so, interestingly enough...I can get the top color to show up in Firefox, but not the bottom color. When I switch rendering engines over to IE, I get the bottom color but not the top color. I also can't seem to add another image to the top layer, there seems to be some kind of overriding rule thing going on. html { background: url('backgroundtop.jpg') 0 0 repeat-x; background: url('CAAlogo.jpg') 0 0 no-repeat; } body { background: url('backgroundbottom.jpg') 0 300px repeat-x; margin: 0; font-family: "Arial Narrow"; font-size: 14px; color: #333333; }
