[Pro] fwCurrent

Hello FW experts. I am wondering if this is possible:

I’m using the css menu action, on a vertical menu, with highlight current page activated. I want to use a background image to highlight the current page…

But…

The image I want to use is taller than the padding above and below the items. Of course, the image is showing partly, but being cropped top and bottom because of the padding set in the css menu action. But I don’t want to increase the padding.

Here is the example: tresell.com

Is it at all possible?

Sly.

Your image is only going to fill the available space - so no I dont think so without increasing that space.

Can you not use an image that is not so tall?

Hi,

Dave you are right, it’s not possible with the CSS Menus Action.

I wanted the image to be that tall (mainly because of the shadow, but also because, well, i designed it that way), so I hand coded it in the end, inserted it as a mark-up item with Crowbar, created an external css file to style the nav, then used the Use External Style Sheet Action to include it in the page.

I guess it shows that even when a FW action doesn’t fit the bill, FW is flexible enough to include extra code and css to get the job done.

It looks like its not working on the ‘thinking’ page - but great job anyway.
