The menu bar for the site is about 14 inches tall and almost fully expanded with every sub-menu in it.
Please change it back.

Someone go live by accident, again? :roll:

I believe they are trying new things with some of the scripting and have changed it back after they saw what it did. Don't worry, everythings cool now....just reload.

The opposite, probably. The site was taken down briefly to roll out some tweaks, and your browser probably failed to load the style sheet while the site was down. Without the style indication that the tables should be hidden, you'd get a big, gnarly, fully-expanded menu. An entertaining consequence, to be sure! :)

On a side note I wish the drop down menus would have a half-second delay built in. If you accidently move off a target you gotta bring up the menu again, frustrating for me when I'm twitching from 6 cups of coffee. :lol:

In Firefox the sub menus still open up in the parent DIV and also the about and help menus appear underneath the advertising. All in all it's a great addition, just a few minor bugs.

anson, thank you for adding the What's New forum to the drop-down menu. :D

As someone stated it a few months ago, would it be possible to homogeneize (sp???) the menus : YOUR photos, MY friends... :wink:

thanks again for the always good stuff.

And people, please go vote for my USA climbing pictures (a good hijacking is always a classical) here on rc.com :twisted:

just press +

the forced refresh will pull down the new stylesheet, fixing your problem

Yep. FireFox continues to hate every potential fix I throw at it. The sad part is that the menus work fine for FireFox on the site I stole^H^H^H^H^Hborrowed them from. :(

Well, it doesn't like RC.com's menus, for some reason. They're run using the same code as several other sites that work great, but FireFox is much much tetchier about the menus here.

I just pushed live a change that makes the menus lay out better on FireFox, at the cost of having to be fairly crafty when mousing over to a sub-menu. It works on FireFox 1.0.4 on Windows 2000. How's it working for you?

Insert standard disclaimer about being careful what you wish for here...

The problem is that when you start changing el.style.left and el.style.top in javascript, FireFox will sometimes change or forget other style attributes (like width and background color), and will sometimes simply refuse to move the element. It also sizes hidden, absolutely positioned tables within the encapsulating constraints, which--while not expressly forbidden in HTML--combines with the I-refuse-to-move-this-table behavior to create headaches. However, it turns out that if you give the table a width of 50 (10 didn't work), then FireFox overcomes its reluctance to size the table correctly. The background color had to be applied to the table as well as the div to make the submenu background carry past the edge of the parent menu.

Anyway, the next push will eliminate the need to mouse over and then down, so I think we're down to just the interference from the ads now.

HTML:


Code


Javascript:


Code
function menu_show(id, parentid, alignid) { 
var iHtWin=0;
var iPos=0;
el=document.getElementById(id);

if (parentid!='none') {
elIt=document.getElementById(alignid);
iPos+=elIt.offsetTop;
elIt=elIt.parentNode;
iPos+=elIt.offsetTop;
el.style.top = iPos;

el.style.left = document.getElementById(parentid).offsetWidth-5;
}

el.style.visibility = 'visible';
}
function menu_hide(id) {
document.getElementById(id).style.visibility = 'hidden';
}


Style sheet:


Code
.top_links { 
color:#ACF;
font-weight: bold;
vertical-align: baseline;
text-decoration: none;
font-size: 12px;
padding: 2px;

FWIW, we are running the site with an XHTML Transitional datatype definition so we may have to work on some of those tags a little bit.. ;)

From my experienc Ctrl+F5 only forces Internet Explorer to reload a page from the server (including stylesheets, javascript files, etc). It doesn't seem to force Firefox to reload anything :!:
The only way I have found effective in forcing FF to reload a page (if it doesn't do it on its own....which it is generally okay at), is by emptying the cache.Tools -> Options... -> Advanced -> Clear (Cache). Then when you reload the page, it should pull all of the content from the server.
btw, I am using Firefox V1.0.4, and am experiencing no problems :lol:
