While converting my vertical menu library item to a Spry Vertical Menu, my <div.content> element dropped down on the page. Pages 244-45 offer a "fix" for this issue (deleting the second ul.MenuBarVertical rule) and I did this, but <div.content> still isn't returning to its origional position (i.e. it's still dropping to the bottom right of the vertical Spry Menu Bar Menu Bar 1 (side_content) and directly to the right of the div .sidebar1).
I'm running DW CS5.5 on my machine, will this make a difference?
do you want to have your Spry Vertical Menu closed, when it starts? If yes please have a look at Gramps answer (paragraph 3) in this thread:
Thanks for the suggestion, Hans. Unfortunately, I'm using a different type of Spry Menu than what Gramps was referring to. Attached is a screenshot that might help provide a visual of what's going on. Main_content should float to the right of side_content. I've tried resizing the width of the Spry Menu in side_content, but that doesn't seem to work. Instead, main_content will either float further to the right, or it will slightly overlap the sidebar image placeholder. Any suggestions? I can provide code if needed.
for me a link would be better and I've found a website, is that the one in question? http://www.nrccstudents.org/lamannal/itd210/greenstart/events.html
Thanks for the link, Hans. This is indeed the same page I'm working on, but for some reason I'm still having issues. I compared the CSS files of the published site to what I currently have and everything looks the same to me. I even copied and pasted their CSS over what I've written and tried running the page in Live View. When I did that, nothing changed: main_content is still dropped down on the screen and I also noticed that the published site has alternating shaded rows of white and green in their tables. Even with their CSS in my files, my tables are still all white. I'm setting up a free server now and will share the link shortly.
Here's a link to the page in question: http://porcelina.netau.net/events.html . Please note that I'm only on Chapter 13 of the book, so there are still a few broken links and several image placeholders/ text. By the way, I've re-inserted my original CSS, since I didn't want to get too far ahead of where I'm at in the book.
