slices and menu options

okay, i'm doing the typical menu thing where i have 5 buttons and one gif underneath them that does a disjointed rollover to let the user know where they're going.  The same menu is used in each of the five pages in the site.  the people i'm doing the page for would like each of the buttons to change to a dif. color and stay at that color, to let the user know what areas of the site have been visited.  i thought this would be a breaze, but it doesn;t seem to work at all.  my thought is that each menu slice should have two behaviors, one to change the disjointed rollover, and another to do the change from one color to the next.  Any advice?  So far, i can get the buttons to change colors, but they don't stay changed on the next page.  thanks in advance...

RE: slices and menu options

this is a fairly simple one fortunately for both of us....

the unfortunate part of it is...I am at work and am trying to remember exactly what the little checkbox says.....

anyway, you will see it...

in your behaviours panel just double-click on the word  (swapImage) and when the dialog box opens just unselect the box that says something to the effect..."restore image on mouseOut"

Hope this helps!

RE: slices and menu options

Do you want the buttons to behave like text links with an unvisited state and a visited state, ie they change colour once they have been visited, letting the user know which parts of the site have been viewed?

RE: slices and menu options

Yes, that's exactly what I'd like.  I tried the checkbox that TulsaJeff emntioned, but I couldn't get it to work the way I'd like - since there are actually two actions - an onmouseover to change the disjointed rollover and and a onclick to hypothetically make the image behave the way a text link would.  Maybe I did something wrong, but to get any kind of result I had to take the "restore image..." check box off of both actions, which didn't remember which pages were visited - it just changed the image from white to yellow everytime you did a mouseover.

Here's the URL of a trial I put up if you are feeling really helpful:


Thanks for your input...

RE: slices and menu options

This one I think is out of the realms of Fireworks. Javascript may be the answer. Try posting to the javascript forum and see if you get any life out of them.
