Navigation

We don’t like navigation, that scrolls away with the page. Frames, a good solution for navigation that stays, are not handy because of spyder and crawler problems. So we are looking for alternatives and found a possibility where the navigation seems to be a transparent layer above a scrollable page. Have a look at the following link:

Is this possible to do in freeway? We now use fw 4.5 but could update if necessary to meet certain demands.
Thank you for help.

To do the same in Freeway, just make sure the navigation menu is a layer and set it to “Fixed in Window”. This will work fine in all common Mac browsers, and on PC in Firefox and IE7. It will not work in IE6: if you open the site you linked to (http://www.fassadenverkleidung.com/) in IE6 on a PC you’ll see that the element containing the links scrolls with the rest of the page.

In fact IE6 puts any element with position “fixed” in the top left-hand corner of the window. This isn’t too much of a problem if the element containing your navigation menu is already located in the top left-hand corner: it just means that IE6 users won’t benefit from the fixed navigation menu.

I’ve used this technique in a site made with Freeway: http://www.compositrices19.net/

Thank you, Michael, also for the note about browser behaviour. What you did in “compositrices” we made with frames and I’m glad for being offered this new way. That’s what we were looking for.
