[Pro] CSS menues

Hello everyone and a happy new year
I am getting crazy with freeway CSS menues.
The submenus appear, but they dont work. I only can see them - they come out of the main menu, but nothing else.
Does anybody know this problem?

Do you have the latest version of FW - there was a problem with earlier versions that didn’t display the submenus properly unless you gave them a background colour.

Thank you for your answer, David. Yes - I have the latest version (5.4.2) and I am working with tiger 10.4.11
When I go with the cursor out of the main menu to the sub menu, it disappears in the same moment.
I have no idea about any reason.

This has happened to me too. But only in certain browsers, mainly IE and Opera.

It has worked if I unclick the ‘Item Dividers’ and ‘Borders’ check boxes in the action pallet under ‘Submenu Settings’.
Basically what I think is happening is when the cursor moves off the main menu item and goes over the divider before getting to the submenu item then IE / Opera thinks it has deselected. Firefox and Safari have always been fine for me.

Give this a try and see if it resolves your issue. If not, post back here - there may be something else to try.

… thank you for your help, David and Nathan
Here comes the link to the page. The Website is published, but this page not (only you can see it):

You see the yellow CSS menu with the two green arrows.
Please have a look !

Hi Bruno

Try changing all your text in the CSS menu container to HTML text rather than graphic text that you have just now.

I am not sure that the CSS menu action is designed to work with graphic text at all.

Dave’s suggestion should work. The menu’s themselves stayed highlighted when the mouse is over them, but when the mouse is moved over the text it goes.

Exactly right, the CSS used to power the menus is designed to edit the appearance of HTML text only, it can’t edit graphics. The text will also look a lot clearer than it does if you use HTML.
