    Okay - FireBug is showing me Javascript now - thank you!

    I've uploaded a revised custom.js, but the navbar still does not appear.

    I posted, but nothing happened, so here I try again:

    Thanks for the FireBug help - that's working great now.

    I've uploaded a new custom.js with the semicolon changes, but it still isn't showing up...

    Check line 29 again. No value before the semicolon.

    These basic errors are causing the rest of the js to fail, so the nav won't show. Once you get those fixed, you should be good to go.

    Sidethought1: (The link in your siggy is hilarious! haha )
    Sidethought2: (Just noticed the lame n00b spelling in my subject - sorry 'bout that)

    <hr>

    Absolute left value added. *duh* - must have deleted than when replacing the commas. Thanks.

    <hr>

    FireBug doesn't seem to be showing any errors for me. Is there a setting that has to be turned on to do that?

    Mine shows notices besides the bug icon. Clicking there opens the Firebug console where I get error details... like the one that shows line 111 terminated with a comma instead of semicolon, too.

    That did it for the navbar's disappearing act! Now just one issue - the first navbar link, "Home" appearing at the bottom of the screen, leaving an empty white box where it ought to be. FireBug is directing me to a section of code, but I don't see errors beside the icon as you describe. (Thanks so much for your help - I hope we can get this last error finished so I can move past this error. It's been plaguing me for weeks.)

    That is because at that time I didn’t know ALL of the code.

    And I remember that site now.
    Now, the home link not appearing in the right spot is because that table (a table for one button??) isn’t inside a division as all the other buttons. Just compare the code.

    That’s why I recreated this menu using a list and CSS.

    VIPStephan - as I said, I will be implementing that soon - but I need to get this one working today.

    I don't see table tags around it - could you show me where you found those, please? As I said in the other thread - I didn't design this, I'm just the one who has to clean it up...

    Specifically - what's the fastest, simplest way to drop it into the same table as the other links, so they always act the same?

    Well, the thing is the entire menu seems to be generated through JS as I can only see the menu items in Firebug (or by viewing the generated source through the web developer toolbar). And there I see that all menu items are inside a div with ID “maincell” plus a number except the home link.

    Now, I suppose this is because of some nesting error (unclosed element) but this can only be found out if you fix the other errors one by one because currently it’s just a real mess.

    Apply a transitional HTML doctype (<!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD HTML 4.01 Transitional//EN" "http://www.w3.org/TR/html4/loose.dtd">), run your site through the validator, and fix the errors, then we’ll get closer to it, I promise.

    Okay, thank you - I have to go now, but I'm going to take care of this first thing either Monday or Tuesday. Thanks again for your help! I can't wait to be done with this...

    okay - doctype declared, all errors fixed (but one, "Error Line 105, Column 11: Attribute "COLOR" is not a valid attribute. Did you mean "color"?" which looks fine to me...)

    The navbar is looking perfect on first load, but disappears as black and white boxes when you hover over them. What's our final step to make this puppy work?

    Thanks!
