I use a transparent png for my logo and in IE7 that works just fine but I'm trying to make it compatable with IE6 by using class="blend" and it works but for some reason its not allowing the url link to work for the logo, is there any way to get this to work or am I doing somthing wrong?

Also, for the tree menu bullet images I use transparent pngs is there any way I can make these blend, I know that the images are called in the javascript but I do not know javascript well enough to make this happen.

Thanks in advanced.

Very Respectfully,
Aldun

It's likely that the image-map won't work with a blended image. You'll need to edit the TOP template to make a single hyperlink sit around the image, and remove the usemap attribute.

The tree-menu images are actually done as background images in CSS, and pre-cached with Javascript. Unfortunately the blend technique can't work for these. As the menus are shown over a consistent background colour, you should be able to make the images gif files with a hardcoded blending that assumes that background colour.
So for instance, a 50% opaque pixel would be saved into gif as a pixel that consisted 50% of the background colour and 50% of the menu image's pixel colour. I believe most image editors can do this automatically.

  • If my reply is too Vulcan or expressed too much in business-strategy terms, and not particularly personal, I apologise. As a company & project maintainer, time is very limited to me, so usually when I write a reply I try and make it generic advice to all readers. I'm also naturally a joined-up thinker, so I always express my thoughts in combined business and technical terms. I recognise not everyone likes that, don't let my Vulcan-thinking stop you enjoying ocPortal on fun personal projects.
  • If my response can inspire a community tutorial, that's a great way of giving back to the project as a user.
