Serious problem with my CSS code

Hi there,

I am new to this forum and I am grateful to have been accepted as a new member.

I have a serious problem.

I have recently purchased a css/html/javascript menu creator which I intend to use to create a nice looking horizontal dropdown style menu for my blogger blog.

I have the menu created within the software and it gave me the html code which I then proceeded to paste into my blogs html file

Then this is what happened:


I would be eternally grateful if somebody here could help me out as I am at my wits end.



SOrry forgoyt to add the preview of what the menu should have looked like

Here it is:

Also, I can provide the html code if necessary

Go head and post your html and css codes

Sorry shimphillip but this website won’t allow me to paste code that contains links nor can I attach the code as a text document. Could I perhaps send you an email with an attachment?

You can copy and paste your code inside the editor. Make sure it’s preformatted.

<!-- Menus will work without this javascript file. It is used only for extra

<script type="text/javascript" src="mbjsmbrdjz.js"></script>

To add to this, there maybe isn’t anything wrong with the code as there is a “Preview” option button within the software which when clicked opens up a browser tab which includes a fully interactive menu, just to show you that it works. Which it does.

Do you have the CSS code? Is the file linked correctly to the HTML?

All the software gives me is the html code. The template I used when designing the menu said that it was a CSS template. I have been to websites where you can convert the html to css but it didnt work out.

Also, I did not manually paste the code into the blogs html file. In the blogger . com control panel they allow you to “Add a gadget” whereby you can just give them the code and they put it into the appropriate place in your blogs html automatically.

Shown in the image below is what I mean. I clicked the “Add a gadget” in the Cross-Column box and pasted the code in.

I don’t have experience using that tool but what I can tell is that it seems as if your html file is not linking to your css correctly. On top of the code you pasted you have your css link; is that the correct route mbcsmbrdjz.css? Try inspecting the html in your brower to see if the right classes are there.

I just noticed in your mbcsmbrdjz.css file that that is not css at all; that’s pure html! Again I don’t really know how the tool you are using works but if you were creating that from scratch you wouldn’t have a css file like that. You are missing the clases that give style to your menu.

<link rel="stylesheet" href="mbcsmbrdjz.css" type="text/css" />

This link should be bringing the css file. According to what you have the file is mbcsmbrdjz.css. Can you check that file and see what’s in it? href="mbcsmbrdjz.css" Is this the right route for that file?

Make sure to give a relative path as well when you are targeting your css file with href.
