Menu Issues

Postby mineko_panda » Wed Jan 20, 2010 12:17 am


this is my first post here...and sadly it has to be full of frustrations.
My friend and I are working on a layout together and we found that easy button & menu maker was a great tool.
Made life a little simpler for us along with dreamweaver cs3.

Sadly though, when we went in to combine everything we encountered a small problem and we are at our wits end for fixing it.
So here's to hoping that someone here can guide us as to what to do :(

We would like our layout to look like this:

But its looking like this:

:x we don't know what to do or if we are doing something wrong....

If need be we can change the layout a bit so instead it aligns vertically to the left or right on the black but we dont know if that will work either :(

Thank you!

I just peeked at your site, Its CUTE!
I think your issue is from the menu not "centering" the same as the
Body/content/container, what you are calling (your "layout" on your css

you should be able to fix it on your external style sheet?

Thank you :D I was pretty proud as to how well it was coming along.

Unfortunately that menu not aligning is driving me crazy. I was looking at the css for the menu itself and there doesn't seem to be anything in there that would make it align one way or another. So I'm kind of lost and confused as to how to go about it to make it work. :(

Thanks though~

:( hopefully one of the blumentals staff can help.

#topmenu {
width: auto;
margin-top: -145px;

Place your menu inside of this div.

You can modify the menu output code by adding in a <div align="center"> </div> around the menu code. That should work.

I use php and I "include" the menu code (menu.htm) on my pages by doing something like this:
<div align="center"><?php include("menu.htm"); ?></div>

@ mitch, thank you Ill try that way soon

@ purple edge: I did what you said and I got it aligned up to the top nicely...but its not in place needs to be over to the left more...and not matter how much i increase the margin-left, it does not move :(

Thank you

Edit edit:

@purple edge: after fiddling around with what you gave me and digging around a little more I finally got it aligned right where I want it.

Thank you so much everyone for your help!!!!!! :D
