Thanks mate, I guess I just dont design the way they like it here (!). Never mind; it’s another freebie on my website.

I’m using this code to make an accordeon on http://www.robbydesigns/temp

function initMenus() { $(‘ul.menu ul’).hide(); $.each($(‘ul.menu’), function(){ $(’#’ + this.id + ’.expandfirst ul:first’).show(); }); $(‘ul.menu li a’).click( function() { var checkElement = $(this).next(); var parent = this.parentNode.parentNode.id; } $(document).ready(function() {initMenus();});

if($('#' + parent).hasClass('noaccordion')) {
            $(this).next().slideToggle('normal');
            return false;
        }
        if((checkElement.is('ul')) && (checkElement.is(':visible'))) {
            if($('#' + parent).hasClass('collapsible')) {
                $('#' + parent + ' ul:visible').slideUp('normal');
            }
            return false;
        }
        if((checkElement.is('ul')) && (!checkElement.is(':visible'))) {
            $('#' + parent + ' ul:visible').slideUp('normal');
            checkElement.slideDown('normal');
            return false;
        }
    }
);

My client wants the accordeon to stay open unless clicked to close like it does at http://plycomp.co.uk/ How do I achieve that using the code above?

Thanks everyone, I’ll take a look around TF but to be honest I do visit here a lot and I’ve not seen anything suitable yet (maybe I’ve missed something?).

To clarify the project (why I am stuck):

the original design includes the photo of the shop as it’s header (take a look at the photo in my first post and then the header here: http://www.livingarttattoo.co.uk), the thing is, it all goes wrong after that; I hate it (even though I was the main designer – not coder- of the original). I’m looking to bring it up to date, make it funky and ‘cool’; they’re a cool bunch of guys, the shop is mind-blowing and I feel the site should follow that ‘brand’.

Any tips/inspiration appreciated.

Hi, I’m a Freelancer as you all know. I recently took over some sites from a defunct web design company and am looking to redesign the website: http://www.livingarttattoo.co.uk

the guys want their shop image involved and I have to admit it’s got me stumped – is anybody out there designing a theme I could use..if not, then how much in ¬£Sterling to design one for me?

You’ll have trouble finding a theme that is so targetted mainly because it would be hard to sell plus the copyright issues of using an image of Oasis or whoever. I’ve seen Joomla template providers do stuff like it.

A bit off-topic but personally I’d make the heading tag margins larger in order to give a bit of space between each section. The sidebar I’d make wider or reduce the font so that each label fits in nice and neat.

Hmm, I’ve seen stuff like that on 123RF but he may well have drawn them himself, they are pretty simple.

We deffo need the forum to be a true forum – ie we get emailed when a thread we’re following gets a reply.

Thanks to everybody for their input here, appreciate it.

I think this thread has run it’s course so I’ll round it up for others that might visit this thread in the future:

I feel there is a gap in the market for photos that are sensibly priced and come with the rights for designers to use in themes so there’s no waiting around for permission to arrive (if ever) and no having to use 15credits+ on sites like 123RF to get a decent photo to use.

Whilst I understand no theme should really be based around a photo I would argue that sites including TemplateMonster do just that and make a lot of $$ plus open the gates for their designers to be far more creative. I don’t want to anger anybody here, you are all very talented but I think the ‘ThemeForest’ default theme of ‘text+scrolling image’ has ran it’s course and there needs to be more creativity to keep us all going.
