Well, here in cold California (-6C at the moment)* it is 1900 on 29 December, which I believe is 0400 30 December in Norway -- I have another new site that uses this technique you might want to check out:

My page, wptest.frodem.no is just as you can see of url, a test page ;) But, how to move the header a little more to the right? picture size I guess is just to resize them a little?


I want it too look like this, only a little bigger, look attachment. How to do this? So that the sliding images and the rest of the blog.

The imagemenu header formatting is controlled by ...imagemenu/imageMenu.css where you can change the height and some other details of how it is formatted. For the raceskitrader.com site, I use this for #imageMenu...

#imageMenu {
height: 120px;
overflow: hidden;
padding: 10px 0px 5px 60px;
border-style: none;
margin: 0px auto;
width: 880px;

The padding line sets padding to: top=10px, right=0px, bottom=5px, and left=60px. The value for left will move the header to the right, but only a fixed amount.

Unfortunately, I haven't found a good way to actually center the header, which is what I really want in a floating page format. Any Atahualpa/CSS experts out there with any good ideas?


MrStark Dec 30, 2009 12:45 PM

I updated my last post. people, please take a look att my pic


jack96161 Dec 30, 2009 01:07 PM

Those adjustments are Atahualpa specific -- the top area is the logo and the width, fixed or floating are both adjusted with the Atahualpha Options. Look under Style & configure LAYOUT, Header Area, etc. The beauty of Flynn's wonderful template is the number of things you can configure using his options admin page.

[I notice you are using Firefox (good!!), you might want to look at a Firefox addon that is a wonderful tool for developing web sites - https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/60

It makes analyzing web pages to see what each component of the page is, what it is labeled, and what CSS statements are controlling its format.]

I close to satisfaction.. :)

check out my test page is gone for the moment
There's a little too much of air on the right side, but I'm closing in :) Happy new year (tomorrow) people, if I'm not here tomorrow

Thank you for your code !

And sorry for my bad english...

I'd like this menu (for my 3 categories) in my sidebar. I use a widget that permit to insert php code in my sidebar and your code takes well effect. The problem is the little grey line due to the balise <ul>. But if i delete this balise, there are no image.

Should you help me ?

Thank you in advance !

jack96161 Jan 9, 2010 12:04 PM

Your English is fine but my French is terrible - I think 'balise' is 'tag' in English, right?

I'm not sure what grey line you mean, could you give me a link to the page or describe what you have in your <ul> .... </ul> tags>?

I'm interested in how you did this in a sidebar!


krystyna Feb 18, 2010 12:09 PM

This was a useful thread, and I made a fabulous header using the instructions. Thanks!

What I'd like to know is how to leave the active page image open in the slider. For example, if you're on the "Services" page, how can I change the script or CSS to keep that slider image open when visitors are on that page?

ortixia Jan 14, 2011 01:18 PM

I have just upgraded to Atahualpa 3.6.1 and my 'sliding door images have stopped sliding. I am in the midst of troubleshooting this right now. (i have the latest wordpress install)

If anyone is having the same problem and can offer some guidance, it would be sincerely appreciated. It is pretty urgent that i fix this. As our organization site is down on maintenance mode until I fix it. Will update info here as i get it.

took maintenance mode off.. website address is www.terralingua.org/bcdconservation

lmilesw Jan 14, 2011 01:36 PM

Have you applied the bug fixes as listed in the new versions and updating thread?

ortixia Jan 14, 2011 01:41 PM

No I haven't, i admit i just glanced quickly over them. Will attend to this now!

lmilesw Jan 14, 2011 01:56 PM

I am not certain if that will fix the issue but let us know.

ortixia Jan 14, 2011 02:03 PM

No it did not fix the error! Mind you for this site, because it was public, this I did not upgrade it since, 3.4 something, whatever the latest automatic update was. So maybe there could be a conflict with the new menu system. or i have something odd with mootools or the js file.

ortixia Jan 14, 2011 02:14 PM

Just discovered it is a conflict with Plug-in GoogleMap Shortcode.

I checked js errors through safari, and saw some conflicts, and then disabled the plug-in.
Because this happened with the update of Atahualpa (the google map shortcode has not been updated in over a year...), there is probably a three way conflict.

None the less, i will attend to a proper replacement of the other plug-in. thanks for all your help, lmiles.

lmilesw Jan 14, 2011 02:17 PM

And thank you for taking the time to test some other possibilities ortixia. Glad you are working.

From doing all what's in this post, I thought I could do it. But I'm stuck at some point.

From Firebug, I can tell the divs are here, but the pics don't appear.

Here's the website url : www.chantez-marmites.com

Seems to me I couldn't find how to properly link my images to the function.

Here's my code in Configure Header Area :

PHP Code:

%logo <div id="imageMenu">
change the href to look like this: <a href="yourlink.com"> -->
li class="bk1"><a href="http://www.chantez-marmites.com/presentation">Presentation.jpg</a></li>
li class="bk2"><a href="http://www.chantez-marmites.com/cours-de-cuisine">Cours-de-cuisine.jpg</a></li>
li class="bk3"><a href="http://www.chantez-marmites.com/qui-etes-vous">Qui-etes-vous.jpg</a></li>
li class="bk4"><a href="http://www.chantez-marmites.com/temoignages">Temoignages.jpg</a></li>
li class="bk5"><a href="http://www.chantez-marmites.com/tarifs">Tarifs.jpg</a></li>
li class="bk6"><a href="http://www.chantez-marmites.com/contact">Contact.jpg</a></li>


script type="text/javascript">
window.addEvent('domready', function(){
myMenu = new ImageMenu($$('#imageMenu a'),{openWidth:275border:2onOpen:function(e,i){location=(e);}});

And here's my HTML insert / Header

HTML Code:

<link rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" media="screen" href="http://www.chantez-marmites.com/

<script type="text/javascript" src="http://www.chantez-marmites.com/
<script type="text/javascript" src="http://www.chantez-marmites.com//

Could you pls give me a hint ?



ortixia Feb 23, 2011 11:49 AM

did you edit the css file to include the file paths of your new images?

Pierre Feb 23, 2011 11:50 AM

I've just found out, my bad, but this is key :

Edit imagemenu.css and replace image names by your own image names.

Thanks a lot Firebug ;o)

Pierre Feb 23, 2011 11:52 AM

thanks a lot ortixia, I just did.

And it now works fine.

Have a nice day (here it's 7 PM, I'm about to call it a day, a nice and sunny one, in my office)


Pierre Feb 23, 2011 11:58 AM

Would you have any idea on how to have my logo (the marmite) aligned horizontally with the sliding doors please ?

Would make me a nice day ending on that one !


ortixia Feb 23, 2011 12:04 PM

my apologies... where do you want the logo? beside the sliding doors? i have your site up.. if its beside i would be tempted to sneak it into the div, in my site that runs the sliding door www.terralingua.org/bcdconservation, i put the logo in bar1

Pierre Feb 24, 2011 04:16 AM

hello Ortixia

Great website that you have, plus I'm really keen on the subject, as I'm also working for an fundation that tries to help farmers protect the earth micro-biology (ie all the life that's inside the ground) and promote local food.

What I meant was (sorry about my English), I'd like to have my site logo and the sliding-doors beside each other (logo left and sliding doors centered on the right hand side of the logo).

I couldn't make it happen in Firebug, using margins or paddings...

I'll try again this morning.

Thanks again (if you can think of something to help me out, even better)

lmilesw Feb 24, 2011 08:03 AM

Play around with these settings. You may also have to do something about the search and RSS stuff
HTML Code:

#imageMenu {
    position: relative;
    left: 200px;

#logoarea .logo {
    position: relative;
    top: 200px;

Pierre Feb 24, 2011 10:19 AM

Hi Larry

You're making me get better at Atahualpa every day (starting from scratch) ; thanks to all of you guys on the forum.
