View Full Version : How to install HoverAccordion jQuery Plugin

03-11-2011, 01:30 AM
Hello Everyone!

I found an excellent menu for my new project and I'm shocked as I have no idea on how to install it. I downloaded both java scripts from the website and I'm still not sure where to put the rest of the code and how?


This is the website, I want to install the 2nd menu which is at the bottom. What code should I put in and where ? in the body or head column?

Thank You

hmmm... seems a little unfinished to me - I couldn't get the first example working at all in IE, FF or Chrome. But I guess the line "This plugin should be considered beta, to say the least" gives fair warning.

Anyway - the one you're interested in seems to do what it's supposed to. There are various parts of code that you have to use - have you tried looking at the source code of the demo page to see what's going on there?

Thank You for the quick reply

Ive tried by coping the whole source, but it didn't do anything. =/

it didn't do anything. =/

bummer. What does the debugger say? can you post a link to your page here?

It doesn't seem like the plugin applies to the page =/

I get an error that Jquery is not defined (which can't be good). Do you have the Jquery file jquery.min.js installed into the same directory that you are trying to install the plugin?

Yes I have, all 3 files, 2 from plugin and index file is sitting in the same folder.

I don't need the exact menu but something like this is needed, if you know script which looks like this, can you post it here, it would be appreciated.

I don't know what that jquery file is that you have installed (it looks to be source code for a free web hosting page), but it is not what you need. I suggest you replace it with the file here (http://docs.jquery.com/Downloading_jQuery#Download_jQuery) and you will probably be fine.

no, I take that back - it looks like you don't have that file installed in the directory at all. Or it is named incorrectly.

but regardless. just download the jquery 1.4.4 minified file from the link I sent you into the same directory with index2. I think you will either have to rename it or the reference to it in your source code so they point to each other, but apart from that you shouldn't have a problem.

sorry for me lack of knowledge? what exactly should i rename them both so that they actually work?
