View Full Version : Rollover problems in navigator
12-21-2000, 03:05 AM
has any one had any problems with rollovers created in dreamweaver 3 not being visible in Netscape?[nbsp][nbsp]they are fine in IE 4.5.
Any help will be much appreciated

well.. I'm not sure this is strictly true. Yes, Netscape lower than v6 doesn't support the a:hover text style attribute but netscape from version 3 upwards does support onmouseover and onmouseout (iirc) although the use is very resticted, since Netscape will not change the content of a page after it has loaded without refreshing, with the exception of image rollovers in v4 provided they are coded so that Netscape recognises them.
After a lot of fiddling, I've got this code working so that it roll-overs in IE and NN and doesn't cause JS errors in lower versions of NN.
<a href="" onMouseOver="over('image')" onMouseOut="out('image')"><img src="images/imageoff.jpg" name="image" border=0></a>
However, since Dreamweaver seem to have quite a Netscape bias, since it supports layers which even Netscape seems to have given up on in v6, I don't see why code it generates doesn't work. Could you provide an example URL?

Thank you Keiichi and thank you Tibbits,
My url is[nbsp][nbsp]http://www.clannzu.com
The first splash page has a cricket that has a rollover of a music note above the crickets head.
The other rollovers are the menu items on each page.
Once again thank you for your help,

The image on the splash page doesn't load at all, it's trying to load the image from your hard disk rather than the website. I assume internet explorer is actually loading the image from your disk (which doesn't work for me since I don't have a copy) but netscape is saying 'eh?'
Not being familiar with either Dreamweaver of Macs I can't really comment on how to fix it unfortunately, unless you want to edit the code by hand and change the image urls to relative links eg 'Images/image.gif'.
As for the code itself.. haven't a clue whether it works, and it is way to late for me to try and decode it.

I think if you just edit the code inside the script manually and put all the right links like tibbits said. I think dreamweaver is putting in the codes right except for your image links.

'onmouseover' and 'onmouseout' doesn't work on netscape, neither does link hovers with ccs.
