Hi Justin,
The Action should work if you drop the page level below HTML 5. I’ve updated the Action to remove the warning if you are using HTML 5 in Freeway Pro 6;

Thanks Tim - the Action was not refreshing so I manually removed the old and added the new Cheers!!!
2 things the green BAM is collapsing?

And it needs to be centred so the green BAM sits nicely across the centre like so

Hi Justin,
Another nice looking site. The BAM needs to have a fixed or minimum height to stop it collapsing. Set the height in the inspector palette and it should show up again. You can also use the CSS Sub Menu Position Action (Menus) to align the BAM to the left of the parent menu.
Regards,
Tim.

GREAT - got the hight fixed and now works though that woube be nice to have it grow to fix content :wink:

K - never used the position sub menu - trying to get it to work but not much happening - do I apply to the BAM action or to the CSS menu div?

Tim, could you add overflow:hidden to the parent container to clear floated children? I’ve not used this Action, but i just made a similar menu by hand recently.

Hi Justin,
It should be fine with the master page although if you hit any snags just let me know.
Regards,
Tim.

Hi Walter,
Yes, I was thinking about that before I sent my email to Justin. I’m trying to think if automatically adding this may interfere with an intended design somehow?

Tim.

Well, if the BAM container always wants to be larger than its children, then it shouldn’t cause any heartache. It would just be a problem in a layout like the original CSS Menus, where overflow hidden would cause the parent to clip its neighbors in the main menu bar.

Excellent. The feature is in. Thanks for the suggestion Walter.

The Action makes use of your excellent Style Accessors library for Freeway 6 and I was wondering is there is anything in there (or anywhere else for that matter) that could help with CSS inheritance issues. The problem is that a moved BAM menu will naturally inherit the styles from the new parent which can sometimes corrupt with the intended design and layout. I was thinking about adding a block of reset styles to each BAM in the hope of wiping out the inherited styles but I’m wondering if you can suggest anything?

Thanks in advance.
Tim.

Yes I noticed that - couldn’t figure why I couldn’t style the links in the BAM figured that was the case

That would be great if you could sort that!

Any style you set with setStyle() will be more important than the inherited styles, by virtue of it being set last. As long as you are not trying to override the CSS Menu styles, which are always written into the page head, you should be able to create override styles simply by setting styles with setStyle() in the SA library.

Thanks Walter. It is a bit of a can of worms at the moment as the BAM Action isn’t aware of what styles are in the main menu that could conflict with those in the BAM itself. I’ll take a look at adding a reset into the Action but that could mess up inherited styles that the user wants to action on the BAM.

Tim.
