CSS Menu Question

Hi,

I am a FP4 user thinking about upgrading to FP5 because of the advanced CSS functionality. However one thing puzzles me. Using the FP5 trial I created a very simple vertical menu with submenus. However the submenus are not aligned vertically. So the baseline of the submenus is some pixels below the baseline of the main entries. What went wrong?

Kind Regards,

Stefan

Hi Stefan

Just a quick thought on this one

What style have you got on your list items?

See List inspector - I believe that problems can arise if the Default is not used.

There may also be issues with IE6 if there is no background colour to your CSS menus (and submenus) but that may have been fixed in later versions of 5

Hi,

Yes there was an specific linked. I deleted it but the problem remains or it became even more complicated. Although the text should now read in default style (which it does in CSS / Indent view) it does appear in another format I created (however there is no link of the frame or text to this format). It seems there is a mixup and I cannot repair it. I used my FP4 created website which I am now trying to transition and see if it performs better with FP5. Nevertheless I should be able to use styles with CSS menu or am I wrong?

I believe it is just the List style that is the problem - not general text styling which can be independent of the List style.

So no matter what styling you have applied to the text ensure that the List style is set to default. (Dropdown selector at the Bottom of the Text inspector window below the Indent control)

Hhm, better now. I am pretty close, by only using text styles. Now I have another problem. Difficult to describe but easy to see.
The second level of a CSS gets partly covered by the first level (using vertical CSS) with the effect that I can select the first item but the second item following is covered by the first level layer (at least by half). Only if you point your mouse to the “other” half you will be able to select it. I found only out by using a color background. This is really strange.
The only difference of the two text styles is the sublevels are 80% between the lines the main level is 100%. Has this been discussed, is there any workaround?

Hi Stefan,

It would help greatly if you could put these problems on the web
somewhere so we aren’t working blind, as it were.

Cheers,

Joe

Yes, I was thinking about that one too. Here are pictures: iCloud .

The interesting thing is. Some minutes I created a completely virgin HTML/CSS menu entering the items manually. This one works just fine now. It seems that after some adjustments the code gets errors. With another CSS I have similar problems see above. Very frustrating.

Could you put the pages with the menus up too so I can see the code
please. The images help a bit but anything could be causing the
problem from multiple menus to incorrect third party CSS styling.

OK, I will do that as soon as this problem reappears. Right now I have deleted all CSS of my website and rebuild them from scratch. Now they are working fine. Unfortunately I did overwrite the erroneous FP5 file during that process. But your help is very much appreciated. Thank you very much.
