[Pro] Paul's CSS Rollover

Hey folks. New to Freeway. Love the program.

I used DW for sometime but I’m no programmer. I like the program in that it lets me do sites that just work.

The Problem I’m having now is getting Paul’s CSS Rollover to work. Been banging my head over this…but the rollover just won’t happen. I don’t know what I’m missing. It just stays in the static state. I’ve been through his walkthrough on his site…so I’m not sure what to do next. Would rather not use the JS method.

Thanks for any help you can give.

P.S. - I can post the code here if it helps.

Good call David. Here it is. It’s in progress…but this is the page I’m working on.

Well I have had a look Jason but I cannot see where it is going wrong.

I suggest that you use a conventional Rollover meantime until Paul is back from his hols - unless anyone else has a suggestion.

Hi folks. Thanks for your help on this. I’m about to dive into doing the rollovers the old fashioned way. Anyone else have an idea as to why I can’t get my CSS rollovers to work?

Thanks in advance.

Hi there, it’s a long time since i logged in here, but anyway…

You need to uncheck the layer, then it will work!

Kind regards,

Thanks cSnijd. Sorry…I’m going to seem like a noob here…but I don’t see where I can check and uncheck layers. In the “rollover” part of the CSS action I’ve checked the appropriate parts I want to show…where else would I uncheck?

Thanks for your help.

Hi again. I think I’m getting close to having this solved. Could someone take a look at this and let me know what I’m doing? I found the layer box and checked that off (even tried it with it on). Is it something in the applescript translation tool (iMagine Photo)

Really hoping I can get this solved today. Thanks

Hi Jason,

You did it allready! It’s working, you only need to download the program:

Ok. As I’ve been thinking…it’s something to do with that program. I download it…start it up…it seems to do “a” conversion…but still nothing. I must be missing a step with the program.

Any ideas as to why iMagine Photo wouldn’t be publishing the rollover correctly? Or am I just missing something?

Geeeez. Got it. I had downloaded the action a couple of times. I thought there was no harm in installing “CSS Rollover 2.fwaction”…but there was. So I installed it without the “2” and now it’s working.

Wow…what a hassle.

Hello again. It seems that that wasn’t the problem. The problem I found out is when you have the CSS rollover in nested DIVs. The sample piece I put up works fine on it’s own…but when the rollover is placed in a series of nested DIV’s it breaks down.

I tried it on the smaller scale sample that I posted above…in sort of a simple nested scenario and it seems that I have to uncheck the “show” box in the inspector.

Does anyone have a work around for this? I mean…this rollover’s going to be about 4 or 5 nests deep. Do I need to have rollovers outside of the nests and create a CSS to tell them to position a certain spot on the page. I kind of had it in the nests so that my absolute position is based on that parent HTML.

Suggestions?
