CSS drop down menus and SSIs

1 New Member
Is it possible to create a pure CSS (no JS) horizontal drop-down navigation menu using only css AND use includes for that navigation item? Most of the examples I see do not put their navigation in an include file.

My problem is that my navigation is in an SSI. Since the include file only includes the body portion, I'm not sure how to proceed in creating a pure CSS horizontal drop-dowm menu compatible in most browsers. Most of the tutorials rely on code (to fix the IE hover problem) being placed in the head portion of the .html (or .shtml, .aso, whatever) file. So since my navigation is in an include file, I don't know how to make it work. Even if JS must be used, is it necessary to include some code (such as IE hover fixes) on every page of the site?

CSS is only concerned with styling HTML elements and their content on the browser/client side. Since a SSI just includes other elements and content placed on the server side, there shouldn't be any issues doing that.

I have an old web application I did where browsers with dynamic capabilities received a drop down menu on the top of the page and a fold out on the left hand side of the page and non-dynamic browsers received two static menus. This was done via server side detection of browser capabilities and branching the application. Over time needless to say the capabilities between the dynamic and static sides got seriously out of whack. Now the...

Hi everybody, I have a little problem with drop down menus. I have a PHP page in which I extract some categories (from a database). I put those categories in a drop down menu without problems. I would like that when a category is chosen, the entire page should be reloaded without the pression of any "submit" button, and should appear a new drop down menu. The main problem is the reloading of the page as it appears not to work if, after...
