[SOLVED] How to make Pages dropdown menu go UP :)

I'm trying to figure out how to get the drop down menu goin up instead of down...

I've moved the pages menu to the footer and therefore the submenus are not always visible when dropping down.. how could I make pop up above the main menu buttons?

Cheers

The code that creates the menubar is designed to do 'drop down' menu's, it doesn't have an option to do drop up menu's. This would be a fairly large change. the code is based on the Ruthsarian's rMenu (http://webhost.bridgew.edu/etribou/layouts/) if you'd like to tackle it.

Well reading this juggledad, I went to look into the css.php file..

And I added this in the CSS/insert
Code:
ul.rMenu_footer-hor ul {
bottom: 95%;		
right: auto;
left: auto;		
margin-bottom: -1px;	
}
So I have now a drop-down menu below the header and a drop-up menu at the footer
There are still a feww things to be edited but it works

this can be flagged as solved
I'm a happy man!

Feel like sharing how you put the menu in the footer for others?

Sure!

First I followed your instruction via another post

	}	
	if ($bfa_ata['levels_page_menu_bar'] == "") {
		$bfa_ata['levels_page_menu_bar'] = 0; 
	}	
	$page_menu_bar .= bfa_hor_pages($bfa_ata['sorting_page_menu_bar'], $bfa_ata['levels_page_menu_bar'], 
	$bfa_ata['titles_page_menu_bar'], $bfa_ata['exclude_page_menu_bar']);
	$page_menu_bar .= '</ul></div>' . "\n";
	$footer_content .= $page_menu_bar;
// END of Page Menu Bar 
After that each time in this bit of code I saw in the IDs or CLASSes the word "menu" I changed it to "menu_footer"

ANd once this was done, I had to duplicate the CSS INSERTS I had created to style my menu and change each class/id "menu" to "menu_footer" in the newly inserted attributes...

Globally that did the trick for me... After I think it depends on each of us applies inserts to style the menu. I believe the same could be done to the category menu, but I wont need to experiment with this...
