[Pro] keeping heading visibile while bottom scrolls

Greetings.

Is this possible ??

I have a site I am working on that has a banner with some ads that are rotating in a stack.

What I would like to do is to keep the banner with the rotating ads visible at all times with the area under the banner scrolling.

For instance::

XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX

being the banner and copy under it

XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX

copy line one
copy line two etc

THEN IF YOU SCOLL DOWN THE PAGE

XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX
copy line 10
copy line 11

The banner is still visible at all times, but everything else on the page scrolls.

Possible ? Ideas ??

Thanks,

Sam

Select the element that you want to stay still in the window, and
change the Layer picker (in the Inspector) from Absolute to Fixed in
Window. Note that this will not work in IE, that browser doesn’t
understand this layout style. You’ll have to test in that browser to
see if the fallback behavior is acceptable to you.

Walter,

I changed to Fixed in Window. It moved the header over to the extreme left, and it did stay. However, the layer of fading ads did not stay with it. (the header contains a stack of rotating banner ads).

I understand now that this couldn’t be the case, so it must not be possible.

Thanks

You will need to either group all of the banner content together, and
apply the setting to the group, or change the nesting of those
elements so that all of the banners are children of the element that
you are setting to be fixed in window.

It’s easier to see what’s going on in this regard if you click on the
header at the top of the Site pane so it reads Page instead. Then each
element you click on will highlight in the list. If you select an
element in the list and drag it to the right in the list, it will nest
into the element above it (become that element’s child) and you will
see a highlight appear on the parent in both the list and the design
view. When an element is made a child of another element, you will not
be able to drag that child outside of its parent in the design view –
it will seem to be stuck inside it. When you move the parent, all of
its children will move as well. If you drag an element to the left, it
will jump out of its parent, and up the chain until it is a child of
the page – stands alone, in other words.

I understand about opening in page view. The fixed elements of the header are children of the box that holds it all.

The stack of layer ads

www.webandsound2.info

cannot be children of the header box…correct? …because they are layers. But in order for the rotating banner ads to work they have to be layer so they will rotate.

I understand about grouping the items, but if I group the banner ads that are rotating, they stop rotating. It must kill the action somehow.

Thanks,

Sam

Layers cannot be children of non-layered elements, but they can
certainly be children of another layer. Just because something is a
layer doesn’t mean that it must also be a first-order child of the
page – it can be a child of another layer.

Walter,

Why have I never been able to group items together for the purpose of the rotating banner ads like

www.wkvi.net

Every time I try to group them the action stops working.

Am I doing something wrong?

Thanks,

Rich

And, I tried putting the layered ads as child items of the header (also a layer) and it gave me several error messages when trying to publish.

Should I be able to make a layer a child of another layer?

Thanks
