Spry Menu Bar Dropdown ADD

Jun 19, 2013 1:11 PM

Tags: #dreamweaver #spry #dropdown_menu

Hello Creative Suit futurists! This is a voice from CS3 past, writing with a recent issue that just developed with our Horizontal Spry Menu. The dropdown functionality has ceased to work, though the rollovers are still in tact.

 

Site A below is the problem child employs the same layout and menu as that found on Site B, yet Site B seems to be a healthy, active child who frequents the playground and kisses girls under the monkey bars.

 

Site A - www.soliusa.com

Site B - www.solistonecommercial.com

 

Both sites are HTML and are edited with Dreamweaver v. CS3. If anyone can assist with a diagnosis and a potential solution, I would be eternally grateful.

 

Thank you for reading this far.

    Your lists & sub-lists are malformed.  With such a big menu, you might want to build a new one with something more stable than Spry. 

     

    Adobe abandoned the Spry framework last year because it has outlived its usefulness.  Among other things, Spry 1.4 doesn't work well in IE10 and Touch Screens.

    For what it's worth, whatever went off track happened on Jun 10th or prior.

    Change the position of the constructor from

    <SCRIPT type="text/javascript">

    __sfga();

    var MenuBar1 = new Spry.Widget.MenuBar("MenuBar1", {imgDown:"SpryAssets/SpryMenuBarDownHover.gif", imgRight:"SpryAssets/SpryMenuBarRightHover.gif"});

    </SCRIPT>

    to

    <SCRIPT type="text/javascript">

    var MenuBar1 = new Spry.Widget.MenuBar("MenuBar1", {imgDown:"SpryAssets/SpryMenuBarDownHover.gif", imgRight:"SpryAssets/SpryMenuBarRightHover.gif"});

    __sfga();

    </SCRIPT>

    Also, be a bit more critical about your markup. In the above you have SCRIPT, in the rest of the document you have script

     

    This may be nitpicking, but it does help to set a standard. I use lowercase everywhere with the exception of defined constants.

    Sure - Search for your site in Google and click the tiny green arrow and select "Cached".
