Responsive CSS Menus

Some help needed, please! I’m trying to learn how to make a responsive CSS Menu but the video tutorial makes a huge leap from the easy - choose the breakdown point on the Action window - to the unexplained. You are shown to choose an icon (from Documents in the video) but no explanation of what icon, where it came from, how you make it, what it does.

Can someone fill in the vital information that the video should have had?

Strange, the Using Freeway manual refers to the Reference Manual for more information regarding the new responsive CSS Menus, but there seems noting to be found. The CSS Menus chapter is not updated …

You have to make an icon by yourself (I suppose and I did) or use an other graphic.

There’s one problem though, the positioning of those icons. I hope to hear form Softpress soon.

There is a reference guide update for this called ‘Extended Reference Guide for Freeway 7’ on the SP site.

I have had the same frustration with the responsive portion of this action. I can find all kinds of info on all different aspects, but nothing about the icon! I have tried creating a variety of my own icons, but no matter the size of the icon, they all show up teeny tiny on use.

Andries – any tips or guidelines you discovered in creating your own icon? Dimensions? File size? Etc.?

not really. Made a few icons of my own and placed them in a test enviroment. Can 't remember specific issues. To be honestly…I am using FW almost daily but losing faith in the promise that FW will become my #1 solution for responsive webdesign. The growing amount of issues mentioned in this forum gives me low confidence of a happy workflow, also the lack of tutorials from Softpress after 5 months release of 7.

The size is indeed a problem. I’ve put “Select Page” in a normal HTML box alongside a 3 bar symbol. A bit clumsy but it does the job.

I use a 500x500px png file as „Hamburger menu“ (opening symbol).
As guideline I used the parameter of a file of a softpress template.

Please feel free to download my file from:

More info’s from Softpress about size, file kind, compression, usage, etc. would come in very handy indeed though…

I agree that more tutorials would be great. I find the Softpress documentation to do a good job of telling me what something is, but not necessarily how to use it, or how to use it in conjunction with everything else. More of a glossary of terms rather than a user manual.

I set out to develop a few websites for myself and after avoiding and avoiding and avoiding it, I finally decided to guess my way through creating inline layouts and though have had “bang head on wall” moments, it all seems to come together so much more easily and sensibly than “drag and drop” which actually drives me nuts. Though I know little about web design, I am on my way to creating responsive sites (though simple, even more successful than some professional ones I’ve been privy too lately).

Hanna – thank you for the file! I looks great. Your size seems to have hit the sweet spot.
