Can I highlight a button to indicate which page is opened

Postby lrfowler » Thu May 28, 2009 4:52 pm

IS EBMM capable of having the button be a different color to indicate which page is opened?

thanks very much!

Currently this is possible in two ways:
1) By creating separate menu for each page with separate buttons selected / highlighted
2) By manually adjusting the menu code to replace one of the button images with a different one

Sometimes there is nothing wrong with adjusting your HTML code rather than spending days to figure out how to do this via CSS-only. :)

Sorry, but are you able to explain it step by step, your answer may not to be used for beginners. Why is it not possible to creat a higlighted button during programming buttons with the software - I think this is a bad mistake in your programming and this bug must be fixed in future.

Because it is not possible for menu to know in which page it is curently located, so it can not automatically preselect a button.

You can do this by editing the code of menu:
1) Locate the Image tag for which you want to change the button design.

e.g. for the first button it would be
<img id="cbi_cbindex_1" src="index_files/ebbtcbindex1_0.gif" name="ebbcbindex_1" width="70" height="33" style="vertical-align: bottom;" ....

2) Replace the current image filename with the one that represents "down", "up" or "over" state according to your preference.
