Hello all,

I am very new to JQuery and thought I'd go about teaching myself. I took three different codes I found online and combined them for my site.


I used:

accordion menu (http://www.i-marco.nl/weblog/jquery-accordion-3/)
a sliding menu and
coda-slider2.0 (http://www.ndoherty.biz/demos/coda-slider/2.0/#1)

The combined menu works great for my main navigation but the slider doesn't quite work. After doing a lot of problem solving, I discovered that the slider does not like my ul "menu" class in my navigation. If I remove the .menu from the ul... the slider works, but of course, my navigation no longer works.

Here is a snippet of code to help give a better idea of what i mean...

<div id="sidenav">
        <div id="navigation-block">
            <ul class="menu">
                <li>
                    <a href="#">Web</a>
                    <ul id="sliding-navigation" class="acitem">
                        <li class="sliding-element"><a class="xtrig" href="#1" rel="coda-slider-1">site 1</a></li>
                        <li class="sliding-element"><a class="xtrig" href="#2" rel="coda-slider-1">site 2</a></li>
                        <li class="sliding-element"><a class="xtrig" href="#3" rel="coda-slider-1">site 3</a></li>
                        <li class="sliding-element"><a class="xtrig" href="#4" rel="coda-slider-1">site 4</a></li>
                        <li class="sliding-element"><a class="xtrig" href="#5" rel="coda-slider-1">site 5</a></li>
                        <li class="sliding-element"><a class="xtrig" href="#6" rel="coda-slider-1">site 6</a></li>
                    </ul>
                </li>

So I tried everything and it is definitely not liking my "menu" class. I tried making it an id instead, no dice. I think it might have something to do with the fact that I needed to use the "xtring" class but I need it in order to call the slider externally.

So I don't clog this thread with code... here is the link to my site if it helps any more.

Any ideas anyone would have would be great!

Thank you so much in advance.

I'm wondering. I can't see a javascript reference to menu. Is class="menu" only used for css? If so, you could work around it i think.

The only place it is referenced in the js is in one of the files titled sidemenu.js

Here is the code:

$(document).ready(function() {$('.menu').initMenu();});

Thanks for the reply!!!

If you remove the class="menu" from the ul and use this line instead, does it make a difference ?

$(document).ready(function() { $('#navigation-block ul').initMenu(); });

Nope, no change. In messing around with the code some more I realize that the slider definitely does not like the accordion code. So somewhere in sidemenu.js it is conflicting with my slider javascript. When ever I disable the accordion effect, the slider works. So confusing :(
