I’m sure this is a daft ask but I cant seem to find the answer anywhere.
Instead of using buttons to navigate my site, I want to use text only, simple enough however I would like the text to change colour on mouse over and I’m not sure the best way to do this.
I have tried a rollover action but I dont get many choices as to what colours etc I want, I have tried making buttons with no colours on them but I then need to duplicate and align for it to like right as the button contains two text boxes then with the same word (HOME, CONTACT etc.) in each but coloured differently.
I thought that there must be an easier way of doing this so I am asking you guys.
Im very new to this so I’m not sure I know what you mean about css menu action?
Also, I’m not sure I explained my problem properly.
All I want is to use words instead of buttons to navigate through my site and when a mouse goes over the word, it changes colour and when clicked it goes to the page in question.
Would that be called a rollover? or navigation bar? or am I looking in the wrong direction?
I do have another problem though, I’ll spell it out here but if this wrong and I should re-post a new subject please let me know.
As you can see from the pages on the above site, they change height from one page to another, I have checked that I have all pages set to the same size in Freeway so could you tell me why this would be happening and how to change it so all pages show at the same height, they appear to stretch but stay the same width.
Basically the page will be as tall as the content on it - more content - taller page.
A couple of things to note.
Not everything is appearing in the same place in all pages so I am not sure if you have used a Master or not.
Items that repeat like your Navigation, Logo and Address if placed on the Master will appear in the exact same place on all pages made from that master.
In your contact form you have not named the input boxes for the name and email (select the field and look under the third tab in the inspector) - these should be ‘name’ and ‘email’ - yours are item3 and item5.
If these are used then the action will check that these have been filled in before allowing submission and the email you receive will appear to have come from ‘name’ (whatever was entered)
I have used a master and looking on my computer and scrolling from one page to another, they all match up perfectly in that the logo, address, footer and nav text are all in the same place as they are on my master.
The pages do not have anything hanging off of the bottom of them so I don’t know why the height of the pages change, can you shed any light on this?
I was going to ask the question about not allowing the form to be sent unless all the boxes have been filled out correctly so thanks for answering that before I’d evan asked it LOL. Is the email and name case sensative? and should it have the quote marks included?
Your navigation is placed slightly differently on the Home page but Info and Contact Us are the same
You are working in Table Layout mode rather than CSS Layout which means that the underlying structure of the page is based on tables this means that each item interacts with others - especially if you resize text.
Go back to your Master page and change each item to be Layered and switch on the CSS Layout button so that any future items created will be a layer.
And for good measure apply the RPL action to the Master
