Juggledad's colored menu cheat sheet
 
Here is my handy little cheat sheet for dealing with the two menu's and the parts. Put this at the end of your css and you can see graphically, what effects what. It should be enough to get you going.
HTML Code:

/* ================================================ */
/* Page menu background                            */
/* ================================================ */
div#menu1 {
        height: 40px; 
        margin-top:0px;
        background: blue;
}
/* ================================================ */
/* Page Menu item's background and border          */
/* ================================================ */
div#menu1 ul.rMenu {
        background: red;
        border: none 0px;
}
/* ================================================ */
/* Page Menu item                                  */
/* ================================================ */
ul.rMenu li a:link,
ul.rMenu li a:visited,
ul.rMenu li a:hover,
ul.rMenu li a:active,
ul.rMenu li {
        background: yellow !important;
        color: #000000 !important;
}
/* ================================================ */
/* Category menu background                        */
/* ================================================ */
div#menu2 {
        height: 40px; 
        margin-top:0px;
        background: green;
}
/* ================================================ */
/* Category Menu item's background and border      */
/* ================================================ */
div#menu2 ul.rMenu {
        background: orange;
        border: none 0px;
}
/* ================================================== */
/* Category Menu item                                */
/* ================================================== */
#menu2 ul.rMenu li a:link,
#menu2 ul.rMenu li a:visited,
#menu2 ul.rMenu li a:hover,
#menu2 ul.rMenu li a:active,
#menu2 ul.rMenu li {
        background: purple !important;
        color: #000000 !important;
}
/* ++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++ */

I added these lines as CSS inserts on the Atahualpa them however the changes are only affecting the results in Chrome - not in IE. Is there an easy fix to this that you can share?

juggledad Jul 1, 2010 10:30 AM

I just fixed it, IE doeswn't like the '#' sign before the NAME of the color, so while all the other browsers will let you have '#red', IE ignores it so you have to code it just 'red'. sigh have I mentioned how I hate IE?

Hey JuggleDad!

First off - thanks so much for posting this - very helpful.

It'd really help if somewhere there were a guide to what the specific CSS markups are for all menu items, including subs. It's easy to get confused about the differences between page items and sub-menu items.

Thanks again.

Hello Juggledad

I have pasted this at the end of my CSS, saved the modified file and nothing happens

/* ================================================ */
/* Page menu background */
/* ================================================ */
div#menu1 {
height: 40px;
margin-top:0px;
background:#8cbb15
}

Here's the website I'm working on : www.enjoy-english-blog.fr

I'd like to have the whole Pages Menu + horizontal line in the same light green color #8cbb15

(and have my Pages Menu fonts in bold)

Thanks for your help

Pierre

When you say you "pasted this at the end of my CSS" where do you mean?

This should be pasted into ATO>Add HTML/CSS Inserts>CSS Inserts

Franco Sep 6, 2010 03:02 PM

Pierre,
i got the same problem
i solved this way:
ATO>Add HTML/CSS Insert
in CSS Inserts look for this line
div#menu1 {
background: #eee;

replace #eee with #8cbb15

and the grey uppr line is now completely green... :)
a bientot

I got problems with this.
Here is my code:
Code:

/* ================================================ */
/* Category Menu item's background and border      */
/* ================================================ */
div#menu2 ul.rMenu {
background:url("http://my_site/wp-content/themes/atahualpa/images/menu-gradient.gif") repeat-x scroll center top #2C79B3;
}
/* ================================================== */
/* Category Menu item                                */
/* ================================================== */
#menu2 ul.rMenu li a:link {
background:url("http://my_site/wp-content/themes/atahualpa/images/menu-gradient.gif") repeat-x scroll center top #2C79B3;
},
#menu2 ul.rMenu li a:hover {background:url("http://my_site/wp-content/themes/atahualpa/images/menu-gradient-visit.gif") repeat-x scroll center top #2C79B3;
},
#menu2 ul.rMenu li a:active {
background:url("http://my_site/wp-content/themes/atahualpa/images/menu-gradient.gif") repeat-x scroll center top #2C79B3;
},
#menu2 ul.rMenu li a:visited {
background:url("http://my_site/wp-content/themes/atahualpa/images/menu-gradient.gif") repeat-x scroll center top #2C79B3;
},
#menu2 ul.rMenu li {
background:url("http://my_site/wp-content/themes/atahualpa/images/menu-gradient.gif") repeat-x scroll center top #2C79B3;
}

/* ++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++ */

First of all I will tell what is wrong in IE.

IE

When I hover on left side (Internetas) it looks like it should be
http://www.ipix.lt/thumbs/10179981.png

But... When I hover on Programavimas or Tinklapiai, just right side, no hover image. Why?
http://www.ipix.lt/thumbs/40090480.png

Firefox

Same code but different problems.

No hover, my gradient image just dissapears where is a text
http://www.ipix.lt/thumbs/47478262.png

And when I hover on text (left or right side), it's just a color, not a green gradient which is in IE
http://www.ipix.lt/thumbs/71111000.png

I really need to fix this, please help me. Thanks

juggledad Nov 14, 2010 04:11 AM

What is the URL?
Are you using the atahualpa or wordpress menus?
Do you have the two menu fixes applied? (see new version and updating forum)

aclime Nov 14, 2010 06:09 AM

URL was sent to your pm. It's still not public, so I don't want to share it.

Wordpress menus

When I was writing last post - no. I added now http://forum.bytesforall.com/showthread.php?t=8756 but it didn't fixed my problem.

juggledad Nov 14, 2010 10:37 AM

Remove the commas after the '}'s that is improper CSS and is causing issues

next re order your statements

Quote:

Note: a:hover MUST come after a:link and a:visited in the CSS definition in order to be effective!!

Note: a:active MUST come after a:hover in the CSS definition in order to be effective!!

Note: Pseudo-class names are not case-sensitive.

aclime Nov 14, 2010 11:55 AM

At last it works. Thank you.

One more small problem

Now my site code is:

Code:

/* ================================================ */
/* Category Menu item's background and border      */
/* ================================================ */
div#menu2 ul.rMenu {
background:url("http://my_site/wp-content/themes/atahualpa/images/menu-gradient.gif") repeat-x scroll center top #2C79B3;
}
/* ================================================== */
/* Category Menu item                                */
/* ================================================== */
#menu2 ul.rMenu li a:link {
background:url("http://my_site/wp-content/themes/atahualpa/images/menu-gradient.gif") repeat-x scroll center top #2C79B3;
}
#menu2 ul.rMenu li a:visited {
background:url("http://my_site/wp-content/themes/atahualpa/images/menu-gradient.gif") repeat-x scroll center top #2C79B3;
}
#menu2 ul.rMenu li a:hover {background:url("http://my_site/wp-content/themes/atahualpa/images/menu-gradient-visit.gif") repeat-x scroll center top #2C79B3;
}
#menu2 ul.rMenu li a:active {
background:url("http://my_site/wp-content/themes/atahualpa/images/menu-gradient-visit.gif") repeat-x scroll center top #2C79B3;
}

#menu2 ul.rMenu li {
background:url("http://my_site/wp-content/themes/atahualpa/images/menu-gradient.gif") repeat-x scroll center top #2C79B3;
}

/* ++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++ */

#menu2 ul.rMenu li a:active don't change gradient image. It should be menu-gradient-visit.gif but it's menu-gradient.gif

I guess that when I'm in page which is in menu, that page link changes to menu-gradient-visit.gif

lmilesw Nov 14, 2010 10:13 PM

I am not sure if this is what is giving you the problem but the syntax for the background should have the color at the beginning like the following.
HTML Code:

#menu2 ul.rMenu li a:active {
background:  #2C79B3 url("http://my_site/wp-content/themes/atahualpa/images/menu-gradient-visit.gif") repeat-x scroll center top;
}

I would change your other background lines as well to make sure they aren't affecting anything.

This is the info from w3schools.com concerning background shorthand syntax...

When using the shorthand property the order of the property values are:

* background-color
* background-image
* background-repeat
* background-attachment
* background-position

It does not matter if one of the property values are missing, as long as the ones that are present are in this order.

aclime Nov 15, 2010 03:23 AM

Code:

/* ================================================ */
/* Category Menu item's background and border      */
/* ================================================ */
div#menu2 ul.rMenu {
background: #2C79B3 url("http://docs.e7.lt/wp-content/themes/atahualpa/images/menu-gradient.gif") repeat-x scroll center top;

/* ================================================== */
/* Category Menu item                                */
/* ================================================== */
#menu2 ul.rMenu li a:link {

}

/* ++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++ */

Changed, nothing happened. :(

lmilesw Nov 15, 2010 06:52 AM

I am kink of at a loss now without seeing the site.

aclime Nov 15, 2010 07:07 AM

You can view my site in this link.

lmilesw Nov 15, 2010 07:31 AM

Shouldn't your active image be menu-gradient-visit.gif?

aclime Nov 15, 2010 07:45 AM

Yes, changed. Not fixed :(

juggledad Nov 15, 2010 07:56 AM

try moving the
HTML Code:

#menu2 ul.rMenu li {
background: #2C79B3 url("http://docs.e7.lt/wp-content/themes/atahualpa/images/menu-gradient.gif") repeat-x scroll center top;
}

to the top so it doesn't overrride the others

aclime Nov 15, 2010 09:08 AM

Code:

/* ================================================ */
/* Category Menu item's background and border      */
/* ================================================ */
div#menu2 ul.rMenu {
background: #2C79B3 url("http://docs.e7.lt/wp-content/themes/atahualpa/images/menu-gradient.gif") repeat-x scroll center top;
}
/* ================================================== */
/* Category Menu item                                */
/* ================================================== */
#menu2 ul.rMenu li {
background: #2C79B3 url("http://docs.e7.lt/wp-content/themes/atahualpa/images/menu-gradient.gif") repeat-x scroll center top;
border-right:1px solid #2B6484;
}
#menu2 ul.rMenu li a:link {
background: #2C79B3 url("http://docs.e7.lt/wp-content/themes/atahualpa/images/menu-gradient.gif") repeat-x scroll center top;
}
#menu2 ul.rMenu li a:visited {
background: #2C79B3 url("http://docs.e7.lt/wp-content/themes/atahualpa/images/menu-gradient.gif") repeat-x scroll center top;
}
#menu2 ul.rMenu li a:hover {background:url("http://docs.e7.lt/wp-content/themes/atahualpa/images/menu-gradient-visit.gif") repeat-x scroll center top;
}
#menu2 ul.rMenu li a:active {
background: #2C79B3 url("http://docs.e7.lt/wp-content/themes/atahualpa/images/menu-gradient-visit.gif") repeat-x scroll center top;
}

/* ++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++ */

Still don't work:(

juggledad Nov 15, 2010 06:34 PM

Which version of Atahualpa are you using? something is not correct in the way your menu's are being built. the atahualpa classes like 'current-menu-item' are not being built.

Do you have any plugins that may be effecting the menus"

aclime Nov 16, 2010 03:23 AM

Atahualpa 3.5.3

No, not plugins problems. I deactivated all plugins 1min ago and menu still don't work.

juggledad Nov 16, 2010 03:57 AM

Something is not right a d I will need to take a look. Please send me a PM with an admin ID and pw
might not be able to look at it for several hours

aclime Nov 16, 2010 04:55 AM
