I just checked your page again and made the same change via Firebug and the menu does work!

However the way you have it set up makes the menu far too wide for your page design. At the moment you have 6 menu boxes with images at 200px wide. Therefore 6 x 200px is 1200px wide menu but your page design is only 921px wide.

So you really need to divide 921 by 6 and make your images and menu boxes 153px wide.....but if you had done that in the first place you wouldn't have discovered the thanks!! :)

If you do a local publish you will have a folder called /sdbm/ and another folder called /images/ and the same is true when you publish to the server.

The images for your menu should be manually moved to the /images/ folder.

If you have published to the server let me see a URL.

The Slide Down Box Menu is awesome!

Found a bug (reported also on your sites feedback form).

Here's what I found -

If you have more then 3 of the Fly Out menu items the HREF for the fly out link does not get populated in the generated HTML. This looks like it's a problem on you demos as well (I think demo 2 has menu items with more then 3 fly outs).

I forgot to post that I was trying this with version and then saw a recent update to and seems to have the same problem.

One quick question as well, is their a way to have the images move into the ./images directory so they don't have to be manually moved? I'm somewhat new to WB7 and the extensions, but would make things a bit cleaner for publishing.

Thanks for your excellent extension as well.

Well spotted! No idea why as yet but I can confirm that only the first three flyout links are being written. I'm on it now and will report back here and via your email. Thanks for the email by the way - the link to your site was useful.

As for the moving of images, sadly there is nothing I can do about yet anyway. I've asked Pablo (the WWB author, owner, support guru and all round genius) to see if there is anything that can be done in the next version of the Extension Builder.

Just a simple typo can cause havoc!

The missing HREF codes were not being written in the 4th, 5th and 6th flyout links due to a spelling mistake in each of these. Now corrected and fully tested. My demo 2 has all 6 links in use to external websites.

I also added an extra option to allow you to choose between _self and _blank so that any linked items can open in the current/same window or you can elect to open in a new window.

Update available from both locations.

Paul -

Thanks for the super fast fix. I updated the extension and looks all good. Menu works now with all Six entries.

Keep up the excellent work, and look forward to more extensions coming from you!

Yup, just checked your site again - looking good. Phew! Had me going for a second or two. Don't forget you can further style the menu so you don't have to stick with the default colours. Let me know when your done!

10/11/11 : Having only realised I could do this yesterday (doh!) I have modified this extension (and all my extensions - see list below) so that the live rendering of the extension in design view is greatly improved. In many cases the design view will take on a background colour you set in the extension properties.

Updates available from the WWB extensions site and my own demo site. Remember to check out the extensions listed below.

Anything Slider
Automated ToolTip
Directory Listing
Elastic Thumbnail Menu
Image Information Panels
Image Swap Menu
Orbit Slider
Photo Info
Simple Horizontal Accordion
Stacked Images
tab Slide Out

Can you post a URL?

I've just viewed all three demo pages and the two url's that templar posted in Chrome and they all look fine to me. What exactly is your problem?

22/02/12 : All image content now published to the /sdbm folder.

You may need to re-link any images if you open a project that uses an earlier version of this extension. Earlier versions of this extension required images to be manually moved to the /images folder. Now all images, css and .js files are all automatically published to the /sdbm folder.

The only way to have different versions of the extension in one site is to place the page in a separate folder - as I do with the demo site. Look at the URLs for the demo in your browser and you'll see what I am doing:-


Because when the extension/page is published all the CSS, .JS and images to run the extension go into a folder called /sdbm/ therefore if you publish two extensions in the same folder the second page will put all it's files in the same folder - overwriting the files from the first publish.

Just make a folder in your project, place the second page in that folder and publish. If you have three uses add another different folder - see my example above.

That generally means you have or have had an illegal version of WWB installed. You'll need to contact Pablo in Support to be able to fix that for you - assuming you now have a legal version.

1. In the extension there is an option to use an image as the menu background. Use that and create a suitably sized .png that has transparency.

2. I just updated the extension (available from extension manager only) with a new property in section "4. Drop Down Styling" called "Drop Down Menu Orientation".
Hi mate :) Great extension !!
