Menu items mouseover color


ThemeBurn SupportForumsHTML TemplatesShoppica HTML ThemeMenu items mouseover color

This topic has been marked as resolved.

Is there a reason the menu buttons change color on mouse over, but then stay that second color on mouse out? Doesn’t that look strange? Normally you mouseover and get a “highlighted” color, then you mouse out and it returns to the original color. The way it is now, you could open the page, swipe your mouse across the menu and you’ve lost all the original font colors, as if you had ‘visited’ these pages even though you hadn’t. Not that anyone shows ‘visited’ links like they used to with blue to purple years ago. I’m not quite to the point where I can read my jquery like English, so I’d break it if I tried to adjust myself. Doesn’t anyone else find that weird?

Apart from that, this is the coolest menu I’ve ever seen, these sub menus rock, with the dividers and all. I’m a developer, not a designer, so I depend on you guys for that fancy schmancy display of my php and database content.

I appreciate your prompt response. Absolutely I’ve been testing out what elements the main and secondary colors control in all three .js files as well as color.css. I’m really having to do trial and error to see what line affect what part of the page.

Are you suggesting I put the same colors for ‘main_color’ in all 3 files and same color for ‘secondary_color’ in all three files? It doesn’t seem to make any difference to my issue. Menu color is determined by color.css line 15. Great. My menu items all start out that color (call it blue). But if I mouse over, they have a background color box (call it green – is that ‘secondary_color’?) around white text, the fabulous drop down menu appears, everything is fine. But when I slide my mouse to another menu item, instead of returning to the original blue font color, it stays green. The drop down disappears, that’s fine. But if I want blue font for my menu items, why can’t I keep blue font for my menu items even if I happened to have passed the mouse over them.

I double checked the Live Preview on themeforest, to make sure I hadn’t done something stupid, which is always entirely possible. The same thing happens there, only the two colors are so similar it’s less freaky to look at. It goes from darker orange to lighter orange if you mouseover and then back out. The original darker orange gets ‘erased’ to lighter as you swipe the mouse across the menu. Do you not see what I mean? The same thing happens to the arrows in the slider. They start out one color, change when you mouse over, and then don’t return to the original color when you mouse out.

I love the mouseover effect on the product listings. They seem to return to the original display once you move off and onto the next product.

Have a great week.

Hello Julie,

The top level category menu hover effect (the smooth color change) is done with JS. The idea is the following:

1) When you roll over the menu item, js colors the text and the background with respectively white and the color value from the settings we have posted in our previous reply.

2) When you roll out the menu item, js colors the text and the background with respectively the color value from the settings we have posted in our previous reply and white.

The slideshow button effects work the same way.

That is why, you need to change these color values in the .js files we have stated in the documentation. If you intend to use the color schemer in your project, you will need to find a way to pass the color values to the three js files. This is the reason, why the same problem exists on the demo: we can’t pass the variables in the static version.

Best regards,
ThemeBurn team

so basically yeah you know its a problem but you have hidden it with a color overlay pretty well.

and not mentioned it to users.

so we sit here pecking away at code trying to get the menu to stay one color when you know its just not possible.

I am so aggravated with this.
