View Full Version : Dreamweaver Dropdown Menu not working??

07-18-2010, 02:39 PM
I am new to web development and am currently trying my hand at developing a new site for my Dad. So far all is going well except when trying to insert a dropdown menu in the navigation bar. Im using Dreamweaver 8 and have tried creating a 'hotspot' over one of the navigation buttons. The problem is that when i add the 'pop up menu' to the hotpspot and then go to view in a browser, all the buttons to the right off the hotspot are pushed onto a new line. I have trawled the net looking for a solution to this problem and as of yet cannot find anything. If anyone has any ideas on what i may be doing wrong then any information would be much appreciated.
All the best.

Hi Edbr,
below is the html code for my navbar div along with the imagemap that i am trying to insert. I have tried creating a navbar CSS rule and have played about with absolute positioning to no avail. If you have any ideas they would be much appreciated. Ive uploaded the test page i have tried this on and can be found here: http://www.acecoop.ie/home2.html (the drop down menu is not displayed here for some reason either but the navigation buttons are pushed onto a new line for some reason??)

<div id="navbar">
