Spry menu bar javascript drop down not working.

  • SOLVED

I have a working spry navigation within the html part of the site. I want to match this navigation within the wordpress pages. The drop down menu function does not work as I have set it up in wordpress. I need help to get this working.



The url to an html part of the site is here:
http://thelastcropfilm.com/index-test.html

Here is a url to a wordpress page within the site that has the same nav bar with <strong>drop down functionality NOT WORKING</strong>:

http://thelastcropfilm.com/blog/california-events/



I have placed my html spry nav bar within the header.php and the links to the script and css in the head of the header.php as follows:

I added these links into the head of the header.php

<script src="../../../../SpryAssets/SpryMenuBar.js" type="text/javascript"></script>
<link href="../../../../SpryAssets/SpryMenuBarHorizontal.css" rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" />


Find it here:


<?php
/**
* The Header for our theme.
*
* Displays all of the <head> section and everything up till <div id="main">
*
* @package WordPress
* @subpackage Twenty_Ten
* @since Twenty Ten 1.0
*/
?><!DOCTYPE html>
<html <?php language_attributes(); ?>>
<head>
<meta charset="<?php bloginfo( 'charset' ); ?>" />
<title><?php
/*
* Print the <title> tag based on what is being viewed.
*/
global $page, $paged;

wp_title( '|', true, 'right' );

// Add the blog name.
bloginfo( 'name' );

// Add the blog description for the home/front page.
$site_description = get_bloginfo( 'description', 'display' );
if ( $site_description && ( is_home() || is_front_page() ) )
echo " | $site_description";

// Add a page number if necessary:
if ( $paged >= 2 || $page >= 2 )
echo ' | ' . sprintf( __( 'Page %s', 'twentyten' ), max( $paged, $page ) );

?></title>

<link rel="profile" href="http://gmpg.org/xfn/11" />

<script src="../../../../SpryAssets/SpryMenuBar.js" type="text/javascript"></script>
<link href="../../../../SpryAssets/SpryMenuBarHorizontal.css" rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" />


<link rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" media="all" href="<?php bloginfo( 'stylesheet_url' ); ?>" />
<link rel="pingback" href="<?php bloginfo( 'pingback_url' ); ?>" />
<?php
/* We add some JavaScript to pages with the comment form
* to support sites with threaded comments (when in use).
*/
if ( is_singular() && get_option( 'thread_comments' ) )
wp_enqueue_script( 'comment-reply' );

/* Always have wp_head() just before the closing </head>
* tag of your theme, or you will break many plugins, which
* generally use this hook to add elements to <head> such
* as styles, scripts, and meta tags.
*/
wp_head();
?>



</head>



The rest of my header starting at the body tag, is here and you can see I have replaced wordpress header and divs with my own which includes the drop down menu bar:


<body <?php body_class(); ?>>

Thanks for taking a look.

Kristin Falkner answers:

This is at the bottom of your HTML version and not at the bottom (in the footer.php) of your WordPress version:

<script type="text/javascript">
<!--
var MenuBar1 = new Spry.Widget.MenuBar("MenuBar1", {imgDown:"../SpryAssets/SpryMenuBarDownHover.gif", imgRight:"../SpryAssets/SpryMenuBarRightHover.gif"});
//-->
</script>


It should probably be placed -- with the relative image links adjusted -- before the closing </body> tag of the footer.php file in your theme.

HI, I think your WordPress needs the DOCTYPE identified. You have this on your WordPress site:
<!DOCTYPE html>

try this...
<!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD XHTML 1.0 Transitional//EN" "http://www.w3.org/TR/xhtml1/DTD/xhtml1-transitional.dtd">

This code: <!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD XHTML 1.0 Transitional//EN" "http://www.w3.org/TR/xhtml1/DTD/xhtml1-transitional.dtd">

does not appear in the original header.php
