[Pro] Navifgation: Slide Down Then Pop Up

Is it possible to have nav items slide down, then you hover over the sub item and they pop up (or out) as in the CSS menu Action?

Or, is this just not a good idea? We’re going to work on site that might have lots of sub pages and I don’t want to continually have the person go out further and further wile trying to get to the last option on the menu.

Thanks.

Try the According action. You could put your CSS menu inside of an according div.

I have the According working fine. Then I insert a div, put a list in it, then apply the CSS menu action to that, but nothing happens.

I have the Accordion Action set to div, too.

Why not do it the other way ie CSS Menu with accordions inside http://www.deltadesign.co/accmenu.html

What I may need is for those sub menus to also break down further into more sub menus. Like popping out to another level.

That feature is built in to CSS Menus, no need for any further
Actions. Just add the sub-sub-options, and indent that part of the
list using the Inspector.

Do you mean like another accordion? Or something else.

Are you saying that the standard CSS menu flyouts would require too many levels and take it too far out.

Can you give us an idea of your page/folder structure.

Yes, too many flyouts would go too far across the page.

We are restructuring the site to avoid too many pages. Right now they have dozens of pages with just links to go to other pages with more links!

But, they were wondering if it was possible to have the slide downs with flyouts if we need to do that.

Actually, Dave, in your example file shouldn’t the Scripty Accordion be set to div? If it is, then you see the sub menus that would need the flyouts on.

That example pre-existed your question so wasn’t planned with any further ‘flyouts’

Yeah, actually it does what I thought it did. I didn’t realize at first you had it set to click, so I thought it didn’t work!

I assume this set up only works with layered CSS html boxes.

Thanks.

Thats what a Div is

Sorry that statement was misleading.

The accordion part within the CSS menu has to be inline (a Div) but the CSS menu item itself doesn’t

That, I know. Just wondering if it works with html boxes. Not that it matters, because even if I used html boxes, I can always use divs for navigation.

CSS html boxes are divisions no matter what they are used for or contain. And yes the accordion effect only works with CSS boxes.

To clarify – the Accordion effect can only be applied to an HTML
layered box, but that box can contain any type of content, as long as
there’s a definite difference between the header elements and the body
elements. You could stack them up like this:

image
paragraph
image
paragraph

or

header
paragraph
header
paragraph

or

header
div
header
div

…whatever alternating structure makes the most sense for your
content. It’s the difference between header and body that matters, not
the specific tags you choose. What you can’t do is have image image,
or paragraph paragraph – that just won’t allow the Action to figure
out what you mean to do.
