  • In replace of a widget... but not flash...

    Ah my web woes continue...
    Okay so I have a site template... (it's a mock up for now for the boss) and no web is not my specialty, print design is so bear with me...

    In the past I have used widgets in Dreamweaver for interactive drop down menus... and they have worked out okay... but I seem to be having trouble with my most recent one... so here is my question, if you were making drop down menus that are stylized what would you use... a widget, your own buttons with rollovers, or something else (please not flash as I cannot code that nor do I have the software)?

    Any suggestions are cool. And if you say widgets are the easiest and best that is okay too.

      Thanks vanish! I went with the widget in the end after my third try made it work.
      I will have to check this out for the future.

        It's really helpful to know you have been on both sides i.e applying as well as hiring, so I will stick to your advice about keeping it plain. Thanks.

        It looks like it's supposed to be a spot glass coating on a matte card. No great way to simulate that in InDesign. Best way to make it happen is call the printer that is printing it and ask them, but...
