    Disjointed, clickable text rollover

    I have text-based navigation. Rolling over "contact" displays the address (layer) over all the other menu buttons. I would like the email address and the phone number to be rollovers (changing color from grey to red) and as well clickable links. Problem: roll-out makes the address disappear, which is intended but it's impossible to click address/phone links. Would it work if the roll-out effect (disappearing) would be delayed? Is there a CSS only solution?

    Here's the page: http://http://raphaelzwyer.com/testRapha/rollover_test.html

    Code:

    It looks like your working on the site.
    Your dorpdown code looks like this:
    Code:
    <li id="contactrollover">
    	<div class="menubuttons">
    		<a href="mailto:info@raphaelzwyer.com">contact
    			<span id="addressbox">
    				<p><span>917-650-9534</span>, info@raphaelzwyer.com<br />
    				143 leonard street, apartment 5, brooklyn ny 11206</p>
    			</span>
    		</a>
    	</div>
    </li>
    You have a hover rule for contactrollover, menubuttons, and addressbox. Can't work with that.

    Son of sucker fish is down or gone so I'm sending you here to see how a css horizontal menu with a drop down is made and styled. http://www.devinrolsen.com/pure-css-horizontal-menu/

    Thanks, sunfighter!

    I added padding to the right of the popup. Works fine now. Thanks, guys! Check: raphaelzwyer.com/testRapha/portfolio.html

    The only drawback: I can't figure out how to make the phone link work independently from the email link.

    (hope I didn't post the reply twice, doesn't appear on my account)

    You have everything wrapped with an <a> tag that links to "mailto."

    Code:
    <div class="menubuttons">
        <a href="mailto:info@raphaelzwyer.com" target="_new">contact
            <span id="addressbox">
                <p id="email">info@raphaelzwyer.com</p>
                <p id="phone">917-650-9534</p>
                <p id="address">143 leonard street, apartment 5, brooklyn ny 11206</p>
            </span>
        </a>
    </div>
    You would need to move the <a> inside to only work on "info@raphaelzwyer.com":

    Code:
    <div class="menubuttons">
        <span class="rollspan">contact
            <span id="addressbox">
                <p id="email"><a href="mailto:info@raphaelzwyer.com" target="_new">info@raphaelzwyer.com</a></p>
                <p id="phone">917-650-9534</p>
                <p id="address">143 leonard street, apartment 5, brooklyn ny 11206</p>
            </span>
        </span>
    </div>
    I replaced the original <a> with <span>, therefore we have to make it act like it was an <a>:
    Code:
    .rollspan:hover {
        color: #BE1F2D;
    }
    .rollspan {
        display: block;
        cursor: pointer;
        color: darkGray;
    }
    You can copy and replace the html in your file and add the CSS somewhere and it should be good to go.
