FWP7 CSS menu - with google fonts

Hi everybody! been using this place for a couple of years now, and i find its resources awesome, that i have never had to post until now; I’m just trying out the new freeway, and its responsive design… and i’ve stumbled across this problem…

and i’ve recreated it in a clean document to find that it is the google fonts in the html markup is creating an issue with sub menus appearing…

I think your menu has problems which are nothing to do with fonts.

I would be suspicious of the method used to create the menu - either it’s
broken or was implemented incorrectly. In either case, I think that you
should directly enlist the help of Softpress support.

Best of luck,

Thanks for the reply, I cut and paste the CSS menu into a clean page and it worked fine, but then adding
The google font html markup that throws it, as soon as I delete it it works again

Uch appears some of my original message was missing,

I have created a CSS menu and the sub menus do not work when I have google fonts page markup applied. As soon as I delete this they appear and work normally

I think your observation must be coincidence. The google font code is a
very small bit of code - 1 line. I can easily delete it from your example
page WHICH DOES NOTHING to affect the menu dropdowns. In contrast, the CSS
Menu generates a MOUNTAIN of code, which also has to work within Freeway’s
own messy auto code generation (e.g., style217, etc.).

Maybe you should post your “clean” page instead?

This is the same set up with markup removed

How are you inserting the Google Font code?

In the current version, you have the Google code here:

<link href='http://fonts.googleapis.com/css?family=Play%7COpen+Sans'
rel='stylesheet' type='text/css'>
<!DOCTYPE HTML>
<html>
<head>
<meta charset="UTF-8">
<title>Untitled</title>
<meta name="viewport" content="width = device-width, minimum-scale = 0.25,
maximum-scale = 1.60">
<meta name="GENERATOR" content="Freeway Pro 7.0">
<style type="text/css">

If you are pasting it into the Page Markup, it should come AFTER the
starting head tag, not before.
