Interactive Button question

  Date: May 29    Category: MOSS    Views: 746

I'll probably keep asking these simple questions until someone tells me to stop!

When I add an interactive button to a page, all goes well until I save the page.
At that time the program wants me to save 3 different buttons for each single
button I create. On a page with 8 buttons, this results in a total of 24 buttons
that are created, with 16 of them being bogus. They later show up on the report
as broken hyperlinks.

What am I doing wrong that creates these extra buttons?

I think we need more information here. Where are you putting these buttons,
what are they supposed to do, and what development tool are you using?

Answer #2    Answered On: May 29    

The buttons are simple hyperlinks for navigating to different pages
within the web site, such as "home", "page x", "page y" and so on. They
are on every page within the site, with a total of 7 per page, and about
9 pages within the site.

As to which development tool, not sure what you're asking for. I'm using
SharePoint 2007.

The interactive buttons you're creating generate three images to make them
"interactive," meaning they perform an action when you perform an action. The
three images are: standard (the way it looks on the page when it first loaded),
hover (the way it looks when your mouse is over it), and active (the way it
looks when you click it).

Not sure why you're ending up with broken links, unless you're renaming the
button image file names without changing them in the HTML that's generated for
your buttons.

that does help, at least in knowing why three
buttons are created. The rest is still a puzzle, though, as I haven't
renamed any of the button images.

It's not really that big of an issue - I was just trying to clean
things up on the site and was surprised to see reports of 88 broken
links assigned to buttons. Not 88 separate buttons - one button is
reported 22 times, for example, on multiple pages.
