Question: My spry menu bar is not displaying correctly in Dreamweaver

Sep 1, 2012 10:56 PM

Tags: #menu #dw #class="menubarhorizontal"> #sprymenubars #spryhorizontal

Hello,

 

I am  new to Dreamweaver CS5, so coding isn't my area of expertise. My problem with my spry menu bar is that it does not display the tabs on the menu bar correctly. When I try to apply new changes to the CSS of the horizontal menu bar, half of the tabs will change and the other half will not. Also, I am unable to drag and move the menu bar itself around, a function that I was once able to do before. At times, only one tab of the menu bar will display itself, without any of the other tabs as well.

 

I have a hunch that my problems stem from some coding errors in the SpryMenuBarHorizontal.css, and possibly in the SpryMenuBar.js. On the CSS Styles panel, my SpryMenuBarHorizontal.CSS list reads as follows:

 

Screen Shot 2012-09-01 at 10.40.51 PM.png

I also have a hunch that something about this line-up is also incorrect, but I don't exactly know what the problem is.

 

Here is what my coding for my SpryMenuBarHorizontal.css looks like right now:

And here is what my SpryMenuBar.js coding looks like right now too:

_________________________________

SpryMenuBar.js

This file handles the JavaScript for Spry Menu Bar.  You should have no need

to edit this file.  Some highlights of the MenuBar object is that timers are

used to keep submenus from showing up until the user has hovered over the parent

menu item for some time, as well as a timer for when they leave a submenu to keep

showing that submenu until the timer fires.

______________________________________________________________________ ____

 

If anyone could possibly steer me on the right direction with this, I'd be very grateful! I've been struggling with this for about a month now and I feel like I may have only made the situation worse.

 

I'm not sure if I have to keep making a new spry assets folder in my website or not or if I have to drag and drop the spry assets into the root folder. I have restarted my website over at least a dozen times by now. I have tried changing folders, dragging and dropping various spry assets folders everywhere and I have also uninstalled and reinstalled my copy of Dreamweaver CS5 in the hopes of getting my spry horizontal menu bar to act normal. I am completely new at Dreamweaver and I really, really need some help with this.

 

Thanks!

    Hello,

     

    please send us a link to your website in question (no matter how it looks like), so we can better analyze.

    Welcome to Dreamweaver and the forum. Even though it's a problem in your local version of Dreamweaver, posting hundreds of lines of code in the forum is unlikely to get you much help. The way everyone troubleshoots display problems is to look at the code in context. You need to upload your problem page to a website (as suggested by Hans-Günter), and post the URL for others to take a look at the page.

     

    You should also be warned that the Spry Menu Bar in Dreamweaver was designed before the release of Internet Explorer 8, and is known to cause problems with IE 8 and IE 9. There is a newer version, called Spry Menu Bar 2.0, which is accessed using the Adobe Widget Browser, and there's a tutorial about it here: http://www.adobe.com/devnet/dreamweaver/articles/spry_menu_bar.html.

     

    However, the bottom line is that Adobe announced a few days ago that it is no longer investing development in Spry, so you might be better off trying to find a different solution.

    It's not clear from your post if your display issue is in Dreamweaver Design View, Live View or when Previewing in browsers.  Design View is not 100% reliable and never has been.  All that really matters is how the page displays in major browsers.

     

    As mentioned, a link to your test page is the best / fastest way to get answers here.

     

    In the meantime, have a look at these links:

    Fixing Spry Menus 1.6.1

    http://www.projectseven.com/testing/adobe-bugs/spry-menus/

     

    PS. If you don't want to waste any more time with Spry, Project Seven has commercial menus for Dreamweaver you might like.

    Hello,

     

    • Do you have a "SpryAssets" folder?
    • If yes, please control the links to it. Might be you need these ../ or ../../ so that DW can find it. Like:

              <head>

              <script src="../SpryAssets/SpryMenuBar.js" type="text/javascript"></script>

         <link href="../SpryAssets/SpryMenuBarHorizontal.css" rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" />

    • Let DW copy all the needed files as it want's to do with "Copy dependent files" (see your screenshot).

     

    Thanks for your link, BUT please load up a website with a spry, and don't worry, it doesn't matter how it looks like!

    ... and: David's objection "However, the bottom line is that Adobe announced a few days ago that ..." should be taken seriously for our future web developments, but at the moment you/we/I can use it it for your/our/my own benefit, until we have found a better solution which we can manage independently from Adobe.

     

    And the the browser will continue to present the "good old spry", right?

    Hello Andrea,

     

    "post code before ..." no problem, we all started our own DW career somehow or other.

     

    Now it's just a matter of adjusting your menu. To this end, I recommend to work through this chapter of David's tutorial: http://foundationphp.com/tutorials/sprymenu/customize1.php and there especially this:

     

    ◦Changing the width of the menu items
    ◦Adjusting the colours

     

    Concerning "will stay consistent for all of the subsequent pages": In every website you refer to your "SpryAssets/SpryMenuBarHorizontal.css" there you will find the same contents.

     

    You can naturally use another e.g. "SpryMenuBarHorizontal02.css" aso, but perhaps more on this later.

     

    Good luck!

    Hans-Günter
