    I cannot figure out why my rollovers are not working on this site. Why am I not seeing my new images? I have been over and over it - recoded it several times, both with uploaded images on WP and uploaded with FTP. The only image that is rolling over is one footer image. Can someone please take a look?
    Thanks!

    Hi Elaine,

    I can help you make the rollovers work if you're not opposed to using CSS to make it happen. I'm not familiar with the method you're using right now. Let me know :)

    Hi Shane, and thank you for the offer! I am not opposed to using CSS. I actually am able to do it that way myself. I have to check out the fonts I want to use and see if I am allowed to convert and use @font-face.
    The funny thing is I set up some dummy pages with this exact code on my own website, and the rollovers I created (in Dreamweaver) are working just fine. I don't know why they don't work in WP - I have done this several times before with no problem.

    Hope you don't mind me asking, but if you don't have any objection to using CSS to manage the rollovers, why wouldn't you use it?

    There is no reason, in my view, to use Javascript to create mouseovers unless you wanted to use a library like jQuery or mootools to add some fancy effects to the rollover as well. CSS is far more efficient, and also means that you can use a single image with sprites... instead of retrieving a new image every time you want to do a rollover or having to use more code just to preload images.

    (And that's without mentioning the complete impenetrability of the MM_* functions built into Dreamweaver.)
