Home Forums CSS Trying to position buttons in a footer Re: Trying to position buttons in a footer


Hi, It might be a lot easier for you to just make the on and off states into a sprite and then have the css shift the position for the different states. I don’t think an image map is the way to go. If you simply have a div for your footer with the background image set as the image you have (without the buttons) then use an unordered list with block elements for navigation in which each list item is one of your buttons and then use the sprite to switch states, that might be better.

Here’s the explaination on sprites from css-tricks

and i’m sure you can find the method for building the navigation, i learned it from one of Chris’s videos on building a webpage
