Fancy menubar

| Web Design | 5 Comments

Decided to do something really productive today, so I added a fancy menubar to my Cyber-Gish Homepage. If you look carefully you will see just under the header at the top of the page, a thin horizontal menu bar which is gray and extends across the width of the window. Run your cursor over the items and the "«" character will appear to the right of the selection. As if that were not fancy enough, if you scroll the page down, this horizontal bar floats along so that it stays at the top of the viewport. Pretty productive day, huh?

This was done using Javascript, thanks to the generic CBE API which I got at the Cross-Browser site. Thanks alot Mike.

Check it out for your late evening entertainment and (optionally) tell me what you think about it. Does it actually work on your browser or is something going terribly wrong? Is the page refreshing as fast as it used to or do things seem like they have gotten slower? Can you read the text or is it too small? I would be curious to hear.

It works! You are so smart Kiffin!

Very slick Kiffin, some company soon will have an asset with you! That's a good thing!!

If this so-called company (wherever it may be) is indeed looking for junior upstart programmer geek-like folks, that is.

Hmm, it doesn't work for me. Internet Explorer 6.0.2600.0000. It might be a weird thing with the incremental updates of the browser, as my IE 6.0 at home will not display a tiny javascript hit counter that can be seen in every other browser I've tried. Weird, however. I really wanted to see that!

That's pretty strange. I have the very same version of Internet Explorer (actually 6.0.28, but that's close enough) and everything works fine. Could it be that you have Javascript (partially) turned off? The Javascript hit counter not working sounds like your setup is not quite right.
