designer seeking help with javascript menu

I'm a graphic designer with very little HTML knowledge who has inherited the maintenance of non-profit agency's website. They have javascript drop-down menus as the part of their main navigation. Up until now, I've only had to change the text or change the size of the menus. But now, they've asked me to add a new menu to one of the buttons. I was hoping it would be simple "copy & paste" of the following code to create a new menu but I've tried it and it is isn't working. My guess is that it has something to do with the 'mm_menu_0623105927_3' but I really have no idea. Can someone shed some light window.mm_menu_0623105927_3 = new Menu("root",140,24,"Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif",10,"#ffffff","#ffffff","#ff9900","#ffc700","left","middle",5,0,1000,1,-1,true,false,true,0,false,true); mm_menu_0623105927_3.addMenuItem("FORMS & APPLICATIONS","'downloads/forms.htm', '_self');"); mm_menu_0623105927_3.addMenuItem("MEDIA","'downloads/media.htm', '_self');"); mm_menu_0623105927_3.hideOnMouseOut=true; mm_menu_0623105927_3.menuBorder=0; mm_menu_0623105927_3.menuLiteBgColor='#ffffff'; mm_menu_0623105927_3.menuBorderBgColor='#ffffff'; mm_menu_0623105927_3.bgColor='#ffffff';
The live site is at .
(They want me to add a menu to the 'Contact Us' button) Thank you in advance., I assume that u have ur if statement and return function to where ever site ur editing, What I suggest u do for now is to change the last digit of ur submenu\MenuItem.... That is (eg.) in ur case if the last digit of downloads is 3 then for contact us u changed it to 4 U can try this and see if its gona work window.mm_menu_0623105927_4 = new Menu("root",140,24,"Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif",10,"#ffffff","#ffffff","#ff9900","#ffc700","left","middle",5,0,1000,1,-1,true,false,true,0,false,true); mm_menu_0623105927_4.addMenuItem("The menu u want to add","'Contact Us/forms.htm', '_self');"); mm_menu_0623105927_4.hideOnMouseOut=true; mm_menu_0623105927_4.menuBorder=0; mm_menu_0623105927_4.menuLiteBgColor='#ffffff'; mm_menu_0623105927_4.menuBorderBgColor='#ffffff'; mm_menu_0623105927_4.bgColor='#ffffff';

I've been looking for a client-side form validation script which will check each field before submitting the form. Can anyone point me to a good one that looks professional. I want it to make a nice presentation of any errors as well, perhaps, as showing a 'tick' sign when the field is correctly filled in . bazz
Javascript project seeking competent scripter/coder   (58 Views)
PLEASE DO NOT REPLY TO THE LIST. SEND REPLIES DIRECTLY TO ME. I'll apologize in advance since I'm guessing this is slightly off- topic. I'm not a coder, but I need some help, and my limited knowledge leads me to believe that javascript will be just sufficient for my needs. I'm also under a very tight budget, which is why I'm posting here. In short, I'm looking for someone to do some javascript coding, and specifically, I'm seeking quotes for the following effort: I have a storefront page I would like to update. Each item in the store is represented by a thumbnail picture. Below the picture are the words "Order [item name]." The thumbnail pictures follow a set naming pattern: xxx_t.jpg where xxx is a number. TASK 1) When a thumbnail picture is clicked, it should open a window with a larger version of the picture. These files have a parallel naming pattern: xxx.jpg where xxx is the number identical to the thumbnail of the graphic. If the larger window uses a lightbox effect, that's great, but not necessary. TASK 2) When the "Order Item" link is clicked, it should open an order form. Based on the item, some of the criteria on the order form should be predetermined/precustomized. These customizations are very tightly constrained -- there are only three possible order form options. TASK 3) Submit all the form data to a third party site called Mal's E- commerce. You may need to assist with the correct configuration of our Mal's E-commerce account. I could do tasks 1 and 2 myself in a very tedious fashion, manually, with HTML, multiple order forms, and so forth. It's painful, slow, redundant, and really, I know better. I could do tasks 1 and 2 in a very complex fashion, using a full blown shopping cart system and ready-made CMS along with a MySQL database. It's overkill, and I know better. Neither option is appealing. I believe this can all be handled with a simple bit of Javascript code. While PHP would be a workable alternative, I prefer not to use an external database. An array contained in a separate file would be tolerable. Regardless, I don't code, which is why I'm farming this out. If you feel you can write this Javascript code (or if you have a better suggestion) send me a quote, along with a resume with portfolio that calls out your work. DO NOT REPLY TO THE LIST. This project may be performed entirely remotely. I'd prefer to meet in person at least once, but even that isn't necessary if you have sufficient references and documented credentials. Based on the amount and quality of responses, it may take some time to evaluate quotes and portfolios. I will respond personally to submissions as soon as I can. Thank you!
seeking advise on what I should learn next?   (51 Views)
I have taught myself the basics of PHP (with the help of this awesome forum) I have all the basic (most common stuff on the web) stuff down fairly well. Now I am trying to figure out the best thing to learn next for web design and development. I was thinking javascript, so i can progress into ajax. Then i have noticed alot of mention of xml in my reading on ajax. So, should I first learn xml, then get js basics, and then focus on ajax
help altering mootools rating system to update database   (189 Views)
im trying to add a star rating system to a website. id like to do something elegant graphically instead of just using a drop down... the javascript framework im using is mootools and i found a great rating system here , but have no idea how to adjust it so that it updates the database with the new rating vote from the user and it calculates the new average rating. the way i have the database set up for this is with the following fields: id (the rating's unique id) listingid (the listing that the rating corresponds to) userid (the user that entered the rating) rating (the rating itself) i use php to communicate with a mysql database. the file im going to write will check to see if there is already a rating entered in from the logged in user. if there is, it will update it. if not, it will insert it, then it will calculate the average of all votes for that listing (rounded up) and return the new rating to the page and set the stars to reflect that rating... ive tweaked the code a bit to represent a 5 star system instead of a 10 star system and also so it can be used multiple times on a page. heres what ive been playing with: Mootools Simple Star Rating 1 2 3 4 5 1 2 3 4 5 $$('.rate').each(function(element,i){ element.addEvent('mouseup', function(){ var myStyles = ['nostar', 'onestar', 'twostar', 'threestar', 'fourstar', 'fivestar']; myStyles.each(function(myStyle){ if(element.getParent().hasClass(myStyle)){ element.getParent().removeClass(myStyle) } }); myStyles.each(function(myStyle, index){ if(index == element.title){ element.getParent().toggleClass(myStyle); alert(index); } }); }); }); and the css: /* star rating code - use lists because its more semantic */ /* No javascript required */ /* all the stars are contained in one matrix to solve rollover problems with delay */ /* the background position is just shifted to reveal the correct image. */ /* the images are 16px by 16px and the background position will be shifted in negative 16px increments */ /* key: B=Blank : O=Orange : G = Green * / /*..... The Matrix ....... */ /* colours ....Background position */ /* B B B B B - (0 0)*/ /* G B B B B - (0 -16px)*/ /* G G B B B - (0 -32px)*/ /* G G G B B - (0 -48px)*/ /* G G G G B - (0 -64px)*/ /* G G G G G - (0 -80px)*/ /* O B B B B - (0 -96px)*/ /* O O B B B - (0 -112px)*/ /* O O O B B - (0 -128px)*/ /* O O O O B - (0 -144px)*/ /* O O O O O - (0 -160px)*/ /* the default rating is placed as a background image in the ul */ /* use the background position according to the table above to display the required images*/ .rating{ width:80px; height:16px; margin:0 0 20px 0; padding:0; list-style:none; clear:both; position:relative; } .normal{background: url(star-bluebk.gif) no-repeat 0 0;} .featured{background: url(star-goldbk.gif) no-repeat 0 0;} /* add these classes to the ul to effect the change to the correct number of stars */ .nostar {background-position:0 0} .onestar {background-position:0 -16px} .twostar {background-position:0 -32px} .threestar {background-position:0 -48px} .fourstar {background-position:0 -64px} .fivestar {background-position:0 -80px} ul.rating li { cursor: pointer; /*ie5 mac doesn't like it if the list is floated\*/ float:left; /* end hide*/ text-indent:-999em; } ul.rating li a { position:absolute; left:0; top:0; width:16px; height:16px; text-decoration:none; z-index: 200; } ul.rating a {left:0} ul.rating li.two a {left:16px;} ul.rating li.three a {left:32px;} ul.rating li.four a {left:48px;} ul.rating li.five a {left:64px;} ul.rating li a:hover { z-index:2; width:80px; height:16px; overflow:hidden; left:0; } ul.normal li a:hover { background: url(star-bluebk.gif) no-repeat 0 0} ul.featured li a:hover { background: url(star-goldbk.gif) no-repeat 0 0} ul.rating a:hover {background-position:0 -176px;} ul.rating li.two a:hover {background-position:0 -192px;} ul.rating li.three a:hover {background-position:0 -208px} ul.rating li.four a:hover {background-position:0 -224px} ul.rating li.five a:hover {background-position:0 -240px} i havent even been able to get the system to average the current rating and the new rating...

Need help with form submission   (120 Views)
, I am designing my website and I want people visiting my site to be able to submit a form. However, if they submit a form, I would like to require certain information to be submitted. I got a script from Dynamic Drive that is supposed to do that but here is the problem.

So can someone tell me what I will need to do to cause this script, if form validation occurs, to send me the info from form in an E-Mail. Thank you.

help!   (119 Views)
, Here's what I'm interested in doing but can't get working. In my webpage, the user can visualize some information from the database and eventually choose to edit it. ( this is done with AJAX). When the user clicks on "edit" the appropriate section is refreshed such that the aforementioned information appears in a text input and can now be modified by the user. What I would like to do next, is to take this modified information, associate it with a new variable and send it to the database to replace the old information - this is done after clicking a "save" button. (Again done with AJAX). However I'm having difficulties with this as I do not know how to associate the new information from the text input to a new variable. Perhaps there is a more intelligent way Any ideas are welcome! Best from Brussels, TMT000
