Nav Bar Issue

Recommended Posts

I created my pages in frontpage 2000 and uploaded them via my cpanel. If I needed to tweek my pages I used the html editor in cpanel and corrected what ever was going on. I am VERY new to webdesign and am pretty much learning as I go.

 

Here is what I have happening, and I am not sure how to correct the problem.

 

I redesigned the main page of the site and uploaded, it went active today. BUT the nav buttons at the top of the page aren't working for everyone who visits the site. I set the buttons to have a hover color blue, background white, text black. THe buttons worked fine on the old page (www.gregvaughan.net/main2005.html) for the most part. Because of the java in the hover they didn't always display for everyone but almost everyone so that was close enough. When I went live with the page today, the nav buttons will click for me in netscape but not in IE. Some others can click them in IE but gets a red x instead of a display with words. When I redid the page, I copied the nav bar html from the old page and brought it over, only changing the colors.

 

Any suggestions? I am not sure why I can click them in one browser but not the other.

 

Anyway, here is the website address. www.gregvaughan.net and the new page is: www.gregvaughan.net/main.html

I appreciate any info you guys could share... but remember... I am a newbie. Be gentle. :lol:

From one Transplanted-to-Texan to one Born-in-Texas: Hi ... checked out your site.

 

Hover buttons in FrontPage are specific to FrontPage, and thus you'll get best results if you use FrontPage's publish feature to send your site up to your web server, versus uploading through Cpanel or even FTP. This will ensure that FrontPage moves those pages properly from your local computer to your web server.

 

I actually discontinued using hover buttons in FrontPage completely about four years ago because of browser issues and so forth, and for problems similar to yours.

 

Give this a shot and see if it solves the problem.

Yeah I have used an FTP to upload some parts of the site too. Ok so if I were to remove the hover, would it correct the problem altogther? I mean they are kind of cool, but not necessary. Having them or not, is ok either way for me.

 

Thanks, I am just a fan who did the site for my friend, Texas born Greg V. It has been fun setting up and learning everything but I do get frustrated when I hit a snag like this that I can't figure out on my own.

Yes, think so... if you remove the hover, it should correct the hover issue.
