ROLLOVER - How is this done on softpress.com

At the top of the page when you rollover the DOWNLAOD /BUY NOW BTNS a neat information box appears. Is this an action? Or an extension of the item, extended option with some CSS styling? I think its jquery ‘fancybox’.

Is this easy to impliment and does anyone have an example download?

Many thanks in advance

A rollover is applied to the button, with a layered object. The layered object appears to he an HTML box with graphic effects applied i.e. a transparent background, rounded corners and outer glow.

In Actionwords spoken:

A combination of the rollover (applied on the button) and show/hide target-layer (the ready steady built element with all infos in) could and should do the game.

Much more interesting:

How does Softpress the remove of the inline styles. I actually do this using Max’s action “Advanced Inline Style Mover” that is pretty cool but a lot of work to do. Do they have other weapons and could this be expected as something inbuilt (a checkbox eg. for those who want this in general?). This would be so cooooool.

Not FancyBox (that is used for the lightbox effects on the reviews and sample sites sections). The tooltip effect was created by our talented Mr Chris Sowley in jQuery and animates specific layered items on the page. These are initially set to hidden and are slid into view when the user triggers the rollovers on the buttons.

Tim.

Hi Thomas,
The site currently uses the Externalize Action (Externalize).

Hi Tim,

ahh - yes - OK.

I had a look on it and it wasn’t to bring together with Max’s WebYep SEO Action (but you wrote that this might occur already in your notes).

I have to have another deeper look in this cause I like the thought of:

  1. Bringing all styles in the head
  2. Build external sheets
  3. Copy them from head into the single sheets
  4. Finally remove them from head

Am I right if I say, that leaving the two css ticks unchecked it will remove the styles but not write it back in head?

Have you had any progress in “excluding single items” just for the case that single items does not like the action?

Cheers

Thomas

… quick correction. I think it works with WY SEO Action. Better to say nothing than to say something wrong :slight_smile:

Hi Thomas,
The two CSS checkboxes are designed so they can be used in various combinations to give the effect you are after.

For example the possible combinations are;
“Move inline styles…” unchecked + “Externalize head…” unchecked = the CSS is left unaltered in the page (this option is there so you can just run the Action on the scripts in the page and not the CSS)
“Move inline styles…” checked + “Externalize head…” unchecked = Any inline styles are moved to the document head and are combined with any existing CSS head styles
“Move inline styles…” unchecked + “Externalize head…” checked = Any existing head styles are externalized BUT inline styles are left intact in the html
“Move inline styles…” checked + “Externalize head…” checked = Both inline styles AND head styles are removed from the page are are externalized to a new css file

I’m hoping to make this clearer in the interface as you aren’t the first person to question what exactly happens with these checkboxes.

The action currently steps over certain Scriptaculous inline styles as I found that externalizing them caused the effects to fail when the page loaded. I suspect the scripts were loading before the styles which caused them to break. I could create a companion Action that when applied to an object will keep the styles intact in the document if you think that would help? What problems are you seeing exactly?
Thanks,
Tim.

Hi Tim,

I wrote you a personal note cause I think I’m after some “Plus Options” in removing inline styles.

Furthermore I think (… not sure) that it would break the mold of this actual list and I usually tend to create a “New Topic” to keep actual requests and answers all together and clean and not mixing it up with totally new ones.

I’m just trying to avoid rumors where there shouldn’t be any.

What do you think?

Cheers

Thomas

I replied with a similar email to the one I posted here. Sorry I don’t think I understand what extra options you are after. The action can currently move inline styles to the head, externalise current head styles and externalize all styles. Did you want to do this on an item by item basis rather than on the page as a whole?

Furthermore I think (… not sure) that it would break the mold of this actual list and I usually tend to create a “New Topic” to keep actual requests and answers all together and clean and not mixing it up with totally new ones.
I would normally agree although I’m keen to get a clear understanding of what you need. Feel free to start a new thread if that helps.

That, I understand! :slight_smile:
Thanks,
Tim.

Hi Richard,

sorry - missed your post.

With version 3.1 (as far as I remember) Max added a great tool called WebYep SEO.

This is a page action allowing you:

  1. Enter a pagetitle
  2. Define keywords
  3. Input a description
  4. Input scripts (just for testing purposes - but works)

This is a major step if it comes to create new page-instances and works so cool. This “bar” appears when you’re logged in in the head of the page, see

Cheers

Thomas
