I have just started designing with DWCS6 new fluid grid. All seemed to be going well until now...
I need to add a vertical navigation bar to my inside pages which is no problem on a desktop view but in mobile it takes way to much room.
I like the way this dropdown menu works (although horizontal) on templatemonster: http://www.templatemonster.com/demo/42341.html (I originally purchased the template but after trying to make changes to the template it seems easier starting from scratch).
Is there any quick, simple solution to having a vertical menu/navigation using fluid grids that doesn't take up to much room in mobile?
If you go to Nancy's http://alt-web.com/FluidGrid/Fluid.html, right click anywhere on the page and choose 'view source' or similar, you will get the complete markup of the page.
On line 19 you will notice the attached jQuery file.
To make it easier for you, you could change that line to read
That way you do not need a local version of the jQuery file.
Thanks again Nancy. I am totally clueless with Java so I didn't realize at first that I needed to add <script> </script>.
Is it best to download the /jquery-latest.min.js file and save it in my site? Just incase I do a few hundred pages and the url changes.
code.jquery is the CDN for all the jQuery libraries.
If their site goes down, we all need to duck & cover.
If you prefer to manually download & host scripts, that's up to you.
There are some good reasons to use scripts hosted on CDNs. One is that it saves bandwidth for you and your site visitors who probably already have them cached in their browsers from visiting other web sites who use jQuery.
