Bored? You want a challenge? I have a site that drives me nuts that you could have a look at . . .

Ha ha. Apparently what my students do for free isn't really good enough :thumbsup:

So should I go ahead and trash this thread now since it is pretty much worthless, or would someone care to share with the rest of us, being as how this is a forum for people to find information. :thumbsup:

I've asked for some guidance as to the development of one of our sites. Let's see what KamakaZ has to say. All of the sites that my students do are truly for educational and community purposes. We're trying to get better. If he's looking for a project, and maybe others have something to add, we'll take on the advice.

Maybe others are in the same boat as me -- their sites just need some tweeking and they're looking for another set of eyes to guide us down a different path that will make us better.

It seems a bit boring, i'd maybe go for a side navigation bar, i've never been a fan of a menu that extends over 1 line.

also for the background, maybe something like the one on this site would help? http://202.45.110.174/renee

it seems to dark, i think it should be bright, maybe a colour scheme change?


I'm still looking for a coding challenge, any ideas groovicus?

Oh. I thought maybe you were holding out on a good reference. :thumbsup:

Good idea... might just do that...
Have you had much to do with it? what languages does it involve?

Okay, here's a coding challenge. This is what I was talking about with the floating toolbar that we used to have on the site.

Original site built in FrontPage 2000 and 2003. Floating script navigation bar on the left. Links don't work now because all of the FP files are .htms and we rewrote the file to be in Dreamweaver (which saves as .html files):

Klein Baseball Website Old Home Page

This is the only file left over that's still on our server that's a FrontPage file.

When we redid the file into Dreamweaver, we literally copied the code from FP into Dreamweaver for the nav bar. But it would never float, or it would end up positioned at the very bottom of the page. We tried and tried, but as I've told KamakaZ, with only 47 minutes in the class period and other students and sites to tend to, I put it on the back burner and told the kids to build another navigation bar.

I'd love to get the floater back. Ideas?

I've entered the script on a current Dreamweaver page and uploaded it:

Klein Baseball Alternate Home Page

Notice the nav bar doesn't float as it does in the link provided above. Also, when the page is manually resized, the nav bar superimposes over the body section (it does not do this in the FP file). It's the exact same code. The only edit I have done is to change the .htm to .html on the links so that the navigation is active.

Edit: just noticed that in FF (since we only have IE at school where I did the edits on the page) that the nav bar is at the very bottom of the page, too.

I think i've found the problem:

at the end of the part where you can edit your menu, you have:

</tr>
</table>
<!--END OF EDIT-->

i copied your source code and put this in:

</td>
</tr>
</table>
<!--END OF EDIT-->

I don't think you ended the cell with the </td> i have tested this and it worked, let me know how it goes.

EDIT: sorry still trying, it seems to work every now and then - will keep you posted!

Just uploaded the changes you suggested. No help. FF looks horrible.

Edit: Thanks! Anyone else who wants to take a look at this code and try to figure it out, have a good time with it. We tried for about a month to figure it out but got nowhere. It appears stationary in IE (any version) on the left section of the window, but in FF (any version), it is positioned at the absolute bottom of the page. It's been over a year since this nav bar was functional, so anything you can do to help is appreciated. I'm pretty clueless when it comes to scripts, and most of my students muddle their way through them. This site was originally written by a girl who graduated several years ago who was a real wizard at coding. :thumbsup: I've got the file on a portable hard drive so I can work at home with it now, too.

the code that you got from here is not much different to the code on your site. maybe try change the frombottom to fromtop? i think that was the only other difference i could see.

when i ran the code from the link i provided it works fine, sub in that code into your code (replace the menu) it doesn't work. the javascript isn't conflicting anywhere is it?
