[Pro] Webyep menu scrolling

Hi,

I’m creating a page for a client and they will be inputting between 50 and 100 entries in the menu using WebYep.
Is there a way to use the Menu CSS Styler action and create a page that will expand with the menu (rather than scrolling which is a bit ugly)?

Or is there another way?

Thanks,

Graeme

Hi Graeme,

one possibility I could think of is, to seek for a reasonable subdividing of the entries and than do it as a drop-down.
This is looking something like this:

Thanks Thomas.

I’ll try to get them to do that.
So, is it not possible due to the element being a layer, or is is still possible in another way?

Hi Graeme
as long as the menu has been inserted as an inline item then it will expand the document.
So for example you draw a big box the click inside it and insert another box call it: MyMenu
Whilst the box is highlighted apply the webyep menu to this item.
then remove the hight attributes to the menu item fill the container with other content and remove the height attributes from that as well

the final result is a something that will expand or collapse depending on its content this is really the basis to all inline layouts although you could also use the RPL action as well to allow for expansion.

kind regards Max

Honestly I haven’t understood what he is after cause I do nothing else than inline constructions.

Layers aren’t really suitable within a CMS whatever color they are.

And the above example is probably not long enough to show the “inline” character of this template.

The RPL need a simple but important note:

Never ever overlapping - regardless what you do. Otherwise it could be disastrous - open spoken.

I probably don’t really understand all the terms and the differences between inline and layers. I just thought that you could only use the WebYep Menu CSS Styler action on a layer, and this makes me think that I can’t use it as an inline graphic.

If I’m wrong that’s good and I’ll try it using the guidelines above.

Thanks,

Graeme

Sorry to return to this one.

I don’t know if I’m being misunderstood here or am just not understanding.

The WebYep CSS Styler action states that it can only be used on a layer so it can’t be used as an in-line object. Is this correct?

As a layer it works great apart from not expanding the page. This I understand.
When I change it to an in-line object it loses all styling but does expand with the page.

So is there a way to get both things working?

Thanks,

Graeme

Hi Graeme
The quick way would be to insert a normal html item as an inline, adjust its width to the correct width.
Then name it MyMenu within the inspector palette
Apply the item/action/webyepmenu action to this normal div and now disable the hight attribute off this div.
Publish

What should happen is this div will have the webyep code added within it but but this way it will be contained in an inline div which is named correctly and has no height so it will expand or contract

all the best max
