View Full Version : mouseover coding problems

01-10-2010, 06:23 PM
I have been building my photography website using Yahoo sitebuilder...I realize this is probably extremely lame to those who are experts at web design but I know very, very little. I've been able to do everything I want to do so far except for how the photos are displayed. What I want are thumbnails where you mouseover and the larger picture pops up. I found some code that allows me to do that but I cannot integrate in properly to work with the existing code. See below link:


What I want is for the thumbnail picture in the white space at the bottom to be on top of the actual background image. It seems like this is just a matter of positioning it correctly on the page but I am stumped. Any help on this is greatly appreciated as it is the last thing holding me up. Thanks.

Hello tiafn2,

Maybe you can use this (http://nopeople.com/CSS/disjointed_rollover/index.html) as an example to follow. View the source to see how it's done.

What you're trying to build is called a disjointed rollover. If you google that term there are a lot more examples out there.

I think SiteBuilder is not doing a very good job for you. If you run your code through the validator, see the links about validating in my sig below, you can see there are a few errors.

Also look at the link in my sig about DocTypes.
