Can anyone tell me which css I should add to, and what it should be to add another sublevel to the suckerfish menu here: www.bethanyann.com/bluewater ? Right now, it is not functioning the way the first sublevel is...with hover events. It just automatically appears when you hover over the first sublevel.

Thanks,
Bethany

Uck, sorry. First, it's

Uck, sorry. First, it's always easier to see what's going on when you indent (and maybe you did and when you get it ready for setting on the server it moves everything to one line, but I can't get a good look at it without copying it and re-indenting).

Second, you have some small css errors (nothing really serious but they are affecting stuff) check the W3C css validator. Just stupid stuff like font-color (doesn't exist, it's just "color"), commas between padding listings, etc.

Third, this must be the Old Suckerfish, cause you has a ton of Javascript! HTMLdog has an updated Suckerfish with just 12 lines of Javascript, and it works for each level, so you don't need to keep adding classes and id's to every single ul. In fact, you can even get rid of the wrapping div. All you need a name on are the subs and of course the main menu itself. Sons of Suckerfish @ HTMLdog

Fourth, which browser does it not look right on? Checking in FF1.5 on Linux it seems to be working fine (although I have a wide screen and eventually, on a smaller resolution, I can imagine the right side getting chopped off as you go to the furthest menu layer).

I only get a submenu when hovering over the second menu item, and then no new layers until hovering over one of the subs, etc. I am not getting everyone showing up at once or anything. Is this happening in IE?

I'm no expert, but I fake one on teh Internets

Thanks

HI there,

Thanks very much for your response. I managed to get the menu working before your response. I am still having an issue though. I really want a parent level indicator to show up when there is a child. Is there any specific code that will make this happen?

Thanks,
Bethany

You mean like a little arrow

You mean like a little arrow gif or something? Like, a down-pointing triangle on the one main menu item that has children? You'd give everything which should have an arrow a class, like, I dunno... class="arrow" or something...

Or am I completely misunderstanding? (Happens often)
