Bugs?

I created a custom theme and ran into a couple of issues.

If you don't allow the delay for the fly-out menu to disappear to be adjusted, you may as well not allow the "space" around the menu to be adjusted. I wanted a gap between the menu item and the fly-out menu, but even a 2px gap requires the user to move from the main menu item to the fly-out really fast or the sub-menu disappears (IE8).

When my template was shorter than my vertical menu, the vertical menu behaves as overflow:hidden instead of ensuring that the container is the same height at the menu. Even adding a P tag below the menu does not cause the div to display properly. To do this, create a 3 column centered and fixed width CSS Sculptor 3 page, add a vertical menu of say 10 items to the left column, and delete the last pigeon-latin paragraph in the right column so it is shorter. The workaround is to fix the height of the left column, but that will not help if the menu is dynamic.

Lastly, when I selected in the theme Design => Current => Entire Navigation Route, all my menu options were displayed in their hover configuration on the home page.

Thanx for any feedback on these. Sorry I don't have a development example up yet. I'll try to get one up if you need it. I am using version 2.03 of CSSMW

In regard to the first issue, you are correct, it is an IE issue but sometimes we could over come this issue by adding a zoom property or a position relative to the menu.


In regard to the second issue, i was not able to reproduce it. I attached a screen shot of the left menu being expanded all the way.


Once you have a live page up and running, please send me a link to further look into these issue.

Since javascript is used to display and hide the flyout menu, why not provide a setting to set the number of miliseconds (or seconds) before the change (e.g. onMouseOut do a function that waits x miliseconds before hiding).

I have not delved into the extension that much, so I am making some assumptions here.

UPDATE: I just tested and padding the sub-menu instead of providing a margin still creates the space, but as far as the browser is concerned, the mouse is still over the element so the fly-out menu stays open.

Well I might be able to provide you a zip of the files. Here is a screen shot:



Did you examine the third question?

(Note: I reset the left column to a fixed height.)

The menu sets the items that are selected based on the url. If the menu items have the same url, they will all be highlighted. Is this the case with your menu?

It would be great if you could send the files for the second issue or provide a live link to the page so I can take a look at it.

I'll try to get something up this weekend. I didn't have the substance in the web site to test what I believe your question is. I assumed that if I chose "Entire Navigation Route" it would highlight every level on the menu through to the current page and if I chose current item, it would only highlight the current item (and not the top level of the menu which held that link.

This could be from testing/previewing the menu when there were no links included. I have seen that in my other menu software, but then it should recognize that the current page is not "#" and none should be highlighted rather than all.

Am I correct about what the choices mean, because that is what I am after?

Yes, the way you are thinking about it is correct. If you click the help button when on the page for choosing that option, there is an explanation of each of the options.
