Lesson 5. Adding User Interactivity > Creating a Pop-Up Menu

Creating a Pop-Up Menu

You can integrate JavaScript Pop-Up menus with your navigation in order to give your visitors a list of choices. Dreamweaver's Pop-Up Menu script works in both Netscape (versions 4 and up) and Explorer (versions 4 and up).

NOTE

This script does not work in Opera, an alternative browser that displays these pop-up menus with no background color. When creating a Web site, you should test your pages in the browsers your visitors are most likely to use. It is a good idea to provide alternatives for visitors who use browsers that may not properly display your site. Remember that there are a lot of different browsers available, but it is very difficult—if not impossible—to create a site that works perfectly in each and every one. Try instead to create sites that will work best in the target browsers (those which your audience is most likely to use) and provide alternative ways to access content. A good and commonly used alternative for the example used in this exercise is to provide text links to the main navigational items at the bottom of your pages. You will learn more about testing your site in Lesson 7.
