I need some help on how to get this menu working on my web site. I created a test page to try it out. I also downloaded and expanded the dropdowntabs.zip file so I have everything I need.

I just need step by step instructions on how to configure this for my Yola site. I read the instructions that are on the Dynamic Drive site but am not quite sure what I am doing.

Thanks for the help!!

Hello Randy

A couple of things first.

1. Do you have a Yola Pro account? The script code from DD requires .js, .htm and .css files to be uploaded to your account. This is not possible with a free account but certainly is with a Yola Pro account. If you have a free account, please let me know because I do have an alternative for you.

2. Depending on which DD Tab menu style you are using, you may need to download the images to go with them.

If you could get back to me with what you have done and what account you are using, then we can go on from there. :)

Hello Randy

Since you have a free account, you are not able to upload the .js, .css and .htm files as needed to make this script work.

So, here's the alternative.

1. Go to http://yolatestsite.yolasite.com and in the chat box, type in "log in" (as long as there is no one else logged in).
2. Then go to http://yola.com and log in with this information:
email: yolatestsite@gmail.com password: yolatestsite
3. Go the the site titled "Navigation Menus".
4. Go to the page called "DD Tab Menu". This page will have all the information needed to set up this code on your site. Please read through the instructions provided.
5. Copy all the HTML and in your site, paste all the codes as explained on the instruction page.
6. Go to http://yolatestsite.yolasite.com and in the chat box, type "log off".

Please let me know if you get stuck along the way. I'll be glad to help you get this set up.

I'm finding it hard to get into the site. Is there another way I can access the code and instructions.

Unfortunately not. Can you please tell me what difficulties you are having? What happens when you try to enter the email and password? You may want to try clearing the cache and the cookies in your browser first.

Alternatively, you could use the "View Page Source" when you right-click your mouse button on the Yola Code site. Navigate to the DD Tab Menu and then view the page source. You can copy the codes from there.

I hope that helps! If this is not going to work, then I can write out the instructions here for you as well.

Have you ever heard of Yuuguu? I use it all the time along with SKYPE. It allows you to share your screen with another person. When I am teaching Mac users, I use this tool all the time. It's free and it works. I also use the Firefox add on called Firebug. This is a must have for any web deeloper because it allows you to take any page and make non destructive changes to it. You can quickly see where and what the HTML and CSS look like on a given page.

I am not familiar with Yuuguu but it does sound intriguing! However, I am familiar with Firebug and agree that it's a must have tool :) Thanks for sharing those suggestions and I'm sure that others will find them useful as well.
