View Full Version : um.trigger and 'you are here' extension

09-13-2007, 11:53 PM
I can't get the um.trigger to execute the javascript before the entire page loads. You can see the whole thing in action here http://www.sustainability.isc.ucsb.edu/built/green_buildings.php
Note: I added the huge pic, just for testing.

Here are the details.

I have the following code in the expanding-single.js file:
//initialization trigger element ["id"];
um.trigger = "brothercake";

The following code is the php/html that make up the header of every page:
<script type="text/javascript" src="<?=$base_url?>js/styleswitch.js"></script>

<!-- ULTIMATE DROP DOWN MENU Version 4.5 by Brothercake -->
<!-- http://www.udm4.com/ -->
<script type="text/javascript" src="<?=$base_url?>js/domFunction.js" ></script>
<!-- you are here extension -->
<script type="text/javascript" src="<?=$base_url?>js/udm-x-youarehere.js"></script>
<script type="text/javascript" src="<?=$base_url?>js/expanding-single.js"></script>
<script type="text/javascript" src="<?=$base_url?>js/udm-control.js"></script>
<script type="text/javascript" src="<?=$base_url?>js/udm-style.js" ></script>

<body class="<?=$body;?>">
<?php //include("navbar.php");?>
<!-- menu script -->
<script type="text/javascript" src="<?=$base_url?>js/udm-dom.js"></script>
<!-- keyboard navigation module -->
<script type="text/javascript" src="<?=$base_url?>js/udm-mod-keyboard.js"></script>

The following HTML comes after the menu:
<div id="brothercake"></div>

Any help would really be appreciated. Thanks.

The site has gone live, with a new URL: http://sustainability.ucsb.edu/

You probably shouldn't be including the domFunction script - that
functionality is already built into the menu.

<script type="text/javascript" src="<?=$base_url?>js/domFunction.js"></script>

What happens if you remove that?

I removed that script, but it still has the same issue. I setup a test page with a huge picture here...

Thanks for the help!

What browser / OS are you using? Seems to work for me. (although I'm on Linux w/ FF2.0 right now).

I'm using Firefox on Windows XP. I added a few more pictures, to exaggerate the delay. Let me know what you think.


Thanks for the help again!
