Menu positioning and other problems
mukesh11 - 8/27/2004 at 07:46 PM


I am using Tigra Menu (free version) and tried to make the menu for my website. I was able to make the menu but as you can see in the attached picture, the following problems are noticed:

1) The menu and the content on the HTML page overlap each other. This problem happens in Netscape, Opera and Mozilla. But overlaping doesn't happen in Internet Explorer.

2) When the top menu is selected the selection becomes highlighted for few more pixels on the upper side as can be seen for 'Help & Support' menu item.

3)Two lines instead of one occur between the adjacent menu items and submenu items. For example you can see the two lines between 'Home' and 'Attorneys' menus.

Also, I wanted to know if it is possible to insert an arrow image in a menu item if there are more than one sub items in it's slide out. I am using the free version. You can see the example of Tigra Menu Pro available on the website which inserts arrow image depending upon the need.

Your help will be very much appreciated.

Thanks and regards,

For answer to arrows. I just posted my thought on thread

I am no expert as I have come here for help and have been learning Tigra version 2.

Regarding the positioning problem. I don't know the best solution. Basically I think the problem is that IE and Mozilla render pages slightly differently (I believe Netscape is Mozilla based since Mozilla is open source).

Did you try editing the menu_tpl file? That file contains the characteristics regarding menu and sub menu position as well as the width/heigth of the menus and submenus.

Finally, the cascading style sheet file, menu.css has the characteristics regarding border width and color.

Personally, if it were me, since the free version of Tigra menu does not support inserting the menu into table cells, I would probably lower the html/text where it says Law Firm of Garves & Kumar so there is no more overlap regardless of which browser is used.

Maybe if I have the time I would try to do a menu for you. I like to do that sometimes for practice and to see if I can duplicate another's work or achieve what they wanted.
