View Full Version : Problem with nav bar

The problem I'm having is this:

The menu was created (not by me, I'm trying to fix it) to originally have the menu button drop and expose the submenu.

My employer no longer likes that and wants the menu button to stay in the navbar and have the submenu drop out of it instead.

I was able to rearrange the div tags so that the menu button appeared on top of the drop down and the sub-menu rolls out under that....but this only works in IE...not FF/Safari.

Can someone please look at this coding and tell me what to do in order to get it to work the same in all 3 browsers?

Code at the top of the page...



<link href="css/global.css" rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" media="all" />
<script src="js/jquery-1.2.1.pack.js" type="text/javascript"></script>
<script src="js/globalSettings.js" type="text/javascript"></script>
<script src="js/backgroundposition.js" type="text/javascript"></script>
<script type="text/javascript">
$(document).ready(function(){
$("#marketing_container").hover(
function () {
$("#marketing_dropdown").slideDown(slideDownSpeed);
},
function () {
$("#marketing_dropdown").slideUp(slideUpSpeed);
}
);
$("#services_container").hover(
function () {
$("#services_dropdown").slideDown(slideDownSpeed);
},
function () {
$("#services_dropdown").slideUp(slideDownSpeed);
}
);


});


</script>




Coding for nav....

Can anyone help me out with this? I don't' know if hyperlinks are allowed in this forum but I don't want my posting removed because of it, but if you need to see how the menu operates in order to understand what I'm talking about, please contact me and I will send you the link.

Thank you all very much in advance for your help.

I haven't tried changing the nav bar on all the pages yet, I don't want to until I know it's working correctly. But, here is the page that I HAVE made the change on::

http://swdirect.com/jmiller/marketing_student_recruitment.html

When you view this in FF, you can see that the first button in the nav bar (Marketing Solutions) does nothing....the third button (Services) shows what the menu WAS doing...

When you view this same page in IE...the first button (Marketing Solutions) works the way I want it to....the sub menu drops. The third button (Services) is still set up the old way.

But this is a clear example of how it was, how I'd like it, and how it's not working the same in both browsers.

Thank you very much.
