    Navigation Widget "Edit Together" Problems

    kylenorthway

      Admittedly, I am just now learning Muse so I do not know what I am doing. Here is my practice site:

      http://burkeauto.businesscatalyst.com

       

      Issue:

       

      I created a MENU / HORIZONTAL widget, but the Edit Together feature stops working.

       

      The menu horizontal widgets have three components that you click through to edit each level:

      1. The whole nav bar
      2. The cell the text cell is in
      3. The text cell — and of course editing the text at this level.

       

      It is that second click that I am talking about. To that cell I want to give a color. When I designate a color the color is not applied to the other cells in the nav menu at the same level. Edit Together is checked. So I ended up manually assigned a fill color for each link.

       

      Now if I create a fresh horizontal widget the fill of the above mentioned level works. Why the original one does not fill I cannot figure out.

      __________________________________________________________

      This has now happened a second time on new widget I just created:

       

      The widget is designed using the "Manual" feature for the ABOUT sub pages ( http://burkeauto.businesscatalyst.com/about.html ). I am using "Manual" instead of the "All Pages" feature since I cannot get the look I want.

       

      Two things are going on that I don't understand:

       

      1. When you go to any sub page BUT HISTORY the active state is not correct. It should be black. This is the color I dictated through the HISTORY link using "Edit Together" feature. The other states worked fine, but not the active state.
      2. Now go to the HISTORY link. All the other menus on this level take on the active state color (black) even though you are on the HISTORY page.

          Hi,

           

          As for the first widget, it sounds like maybe the menu item's state was in Active, and so editing the fill color didn't appear to have any effect on the rest of the menu items. When clicking into a menu item the state is set to Active, switching to the desired state then making changes should have the effects you want (correct me if this wasn't the case).

           

          As for the site you've linked to, do you mind sending me the .muse file at muse-ts@adobe.com, along with a link to this thread? I think I'll be able to help you better after I examine the current state of the menus from within Muse.

           

          If the file is too large for email you can use something like Adobe SendNow or SendThisFile.

           

          Thanks,

          Colby

            Hi Colby,

             

            Yesterday I emailed you the Muse file with the below response. Did you get it?

             

            You asked:

            As for the first widget, it sounds like maybe the menu item's state was in Active, and so editing the fill color didn't appear to have any effect on the rest of the menu items.

            No, I did work in the desired state (99% sure) and I manually went into each nav link to correct what Edit Together did not do. Edit Together did work on the the states.


            The sub menu has a similar problem with a little twist: the HISTORY active is applied to all the sub menu nav links.


            Thanks for your work on this!

              Hi,

               

              Looks like it didn't get through. Can you try sending it again? Be sure to include a link to this thread as well.


              Thanks!
