  • 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.

    I use suckerfish almost exclusively. The technique works with CSS in current browsers and requires javascript for IE6. Check it out:

      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.

        Your wisdom and experience are showing again. It's true there are all types of work situations to be found, and very few of them qualify as a "dream job." Whether you can tolerate a situation,...

        Yup. That's largely my take on things too. Maybe I'm jaded by the constant parade of newbies, wannabes, amateurs and kids on the forum making artsy, fartsy whatevers in Photoshop and proposing to go into...

        So did they ask you to adjust their logo or not? If not, you'll just have to live with it. If they have, then it's your job as the designer to understand what typeface to use to communicate something....
