Ok, so I'm at school and need help with optimizing their website. I help with codes and such in HTML and Java... so I need help now! :)
We recently added a banner to the school website: DBHS
and it conflicts with the java of the top menu ( drop down menu at top of page)
We haven't uploaded the new and better banner script because it conflicts with this topmenu we have.
Hmmm.. i'm going to upload a prototype page so you can see the problem.
Btw, at school, we use Safari and IE Mac Edition 5.2 and the new IMac G5's towerless with wireless mouse and keyboard :woot:
Ok, I just uploaded the prototype page so you can see the problem in effect.
The banners aren't there on purpose, so just look at the issue.
go to:
Index Prototype
and look at the banner script and java pull down menu...
When the menu rolls over, it hides behind the banners...
I need help with fixing that.
You can view source and see the banner script that we use on the regular home page (DBHS)
and the code that we use on the Index Prototype Page.
See the difference? Way smaller code and better on the index prototype... and if you cant tell what code is for he banner code, here it is...

On the regular Home Page:
		  <td width="704" height="28"> 
			<div align="center">
			<script language="JavaScript">
var imgs1 = new Array("img/1.jpg","img/2.jpg","img/3.jpg","img/4.jpg","img/5.jpg","img/6.jpg","img/7.jpg","img/8.jpg","img/9.jpg","img/10.jpg","img/11.jpg",
var alt1 = new Array()
var currentAd1 = 0
var imgCt1 = 40
function cycle1() {
  if (currentAd1 == imgCt1) {
	currentAd1 = 0
var banner1 = document.getElementById('adBanner1');
var link1 = document.getElementById('adLink1');
  <p><img src="img/1.jpg" id="adBanner1" border="0" width="440" height="85"></p>

and here goes the code on the index prototype:
<applet code="KzmAdvertise" width="440"
   height="85"><param name="scriptfile" value="scriptfile.txt"><param name="copyright"
   value="Alex 'Kazuma' Garbagnati, [email protected]"><param name="imagesdir"
   value="img"><param name="welcome" value="DBHS Partners">KzmAdvertise

Ok, so now that you have that, here's the code for the topmenu... it's saved as a .js file and is linked in that place on every page:

As you see, if we wanted to change the wait time between banner change, we'd have to edit every single page, and thats horrible...
Also.. we can't add links to the partners' website using the first code on the Home Page...

The problem we think we have is that there's a link over a link problem...
Or maybe something to do with java over .png's (as the banners are saved, so that the link can be added to them)

We need your help to make it so all we have to do is change the code in the topmenu.js file... and not have to add something to the <head> tag on every page.. since there's over 2800 pages on the school network... :tazz: :)

If someone has an answer to this, please respond as efficiently as soon as you can because today is friday, and I cant get on the school network from my home computer.
I have Dreamweaver and a copy of the .js file, index, indexprototype pages..., and the banner script's accompanying files... so I can make corrections at my place.. but I won't be able to post it on the school website.. maybe on a different location.. but thats a different story...

So.. if you require more information, or have an answer or something, please respond.. this is a problem that needs to be solved immediately....

Thanks in advance..

P.S. I also have a copy of the style.css.. if that might need to be changed for some bizarre reason...

Major EDIT: Instead of using the index page as the code that is long but works, we'll be using this page:
We are uploading the new banners but we'll skip this file...

I am not sure whether you could do that. But if you want the menus to appear behind the banner, will that not hide your menus. I think this is what it should be when you use DHTML. I am curious to know as well as to how you resolve this. Good Luck
