Slide Down Box Menu (free)

Postby Adendum » Sat Sep 24, 2011 6:04 pm

The Slide Down Box Menu is now available from the main extension site - here and also from my extension demo site. The help file is also available online from the same page.

This menu extension is a jQuery and CSS menu based on the original CODROPS code.

This version offers all the same features and benefits as originally coded but also allows you to customise several parts of the menu including a different drop down box size to the main menu, different colours or images for the drop down and/or fly out sections and the option to have more or less menu buttons.

PLEASE READ THE HELP FILE BEFORE REQUESTING SUPPORT.

As far as I am aware that's not possible.

The options available are to:-
[a] Display TEXT only (text specified by the extension builder)
[b] Display IMAGE (an image specified by the extension builder)
[c] Live HTML rendering (not quite sure what this means but that's what I use most of the time)

So as far as I am aware there would need to be a change made to the Extension Builder program that Pablo provides so somehow display the contents in design view. Unless more experienced extension builders know better?

Extension updated today to use WWB supplied jQuery rather than .. ajax.googleapis.com/ajax/libs/jquery/1.4.2/jquery.min.js as used by the original author.

Ed,

I think the easiest way for me to work out what is happening is if you send me your Tips_&_Tricks.html page as a project file (.wbs) together with your menu images. Save the current project with a new name, delete all the other pages, save again and then email me.

Drop me a line first using either my support form or main site contact form and I'll email you back with my email address as there is no PM system on the forum.

Ed,

When using Firefox and Firebug I can clearly see that the images have not been uploaded to the server.

And not that it will make any difference to this problem you should update the extension. Your version uses a link to the Google Ajax library for the jQuery file (my oversight). The updated version uses to WWB supplied jQuery. This wont fix the problem but just wanted to let you know.

@templar1973,

Thanks for the email. Files received. I will look into this tomorrow and email you back and post here.

Been a bit busy finishing off a new menu - viewtopic.php?f=42&t=42635

The good news is [a] that there was nothing you did wrong and [b] there is a 'fix' although maybe not ideal.

The bad news is I can't see where the problem is - but there is a problem. When specifying more than 5 menu items anything wider than 170px wide menu boxes breaks the extension. So the temporary fix is to make yours match the dimensions I have used in my version of your menu. And this requires you to re-size the images too. My version is set up, with re-sized images, to 170 wide and it all worked fine. Make the menu boxes 171 wide and it breaks?!?!? :?

I'll need to dig deeper to find out where and how this is happening but I'll report back if/when I find a solution. In the mean time you will have to work within the 6 times 170px wide constraints.

:cry:

UPDATED : Slide Down Box Menu (free)

Postby Adendum » Thu Oct 27, 2011 12:50 pm

I spoke too soon.

Found the problem, a stray width setting in the CSS file! I have corrected this and updated the extension. Update 1.0.0.2 available via Tools>Extension Manager and/or my demo site.

Phew! :P
