Dreamweaver did it auto but was wondering about rollover links with RLM. Anybody play with these?

What do you want your links to do at rollover?
I can't hear what I'm looking at.
It's easy to overlook something you're not looking for.

Here's my S-Drive site with
examples of what can be accomplished in VSD.
Here's my CoffeeCup SCCP Shop with examples of what can be done.

You can not add Rollover directly within RLM and you have to export your project and then edit it with code editor of your choice.

If you provide project file and with some instruction we could help you here

Rollover in CSS is part of Pseudo-classes ( it's called Hover state )

This is Just an example: {
background-color: #16548a;
color: #e6e8eb;
text-align: center;
font-size: 16px;
background-image: url(../Default.png);
background-repeat: no-repeat;
} {
background-color: #B22222;
font-size: 19px;
background-image: url(../Hover.png);
background-repeat: no-repeat;
The above code just an example, it may not work at your side.

I suggest you have look at in YouTube for some tutorials
Here is one:

I need to do it the old way Im thinking - where there are 2 images and the substitute as in this example.

This is what the client wants - look at the right companies - you roll over and get a description then if you click it goes to the manufacturer. I did this site in Dreamweaver and it was pretty simple but it was within the program and I don't get how to do it in new RLM and editor. The site has been very successful for him and he wants to reproduce this in responsive format.

Thanks in advance,

Take a look at some of the samples on Eric's site.

Check other links he has posted on the main page. I'm not an RLM user yet, but you should be able to do this in RLM. I would think, maybe ...

You could try *Omitted rival software name*

Please do not post suggestions for outside software if it's a software type that is provided by CoffeeCup, thanks! :)

Hello guys

Well the client paid up!!! So I'm back on this project.

The small logos on the right - see how they rollover to another image and then if you click they nav to the page. He wants that again for his new responsive site. Search YouTube and tried some fo the above suggestions but can't get it going. Tried to use the dreamweaver coding and it didn't work either. here is the dreamweaver code example ( I know about size difference just experimenting to try to get this)

Stumped - any thoughts?

Hi Byron thats an easy solution.

All you need to do is use this code:

<a href="URL HERE"><img src="imageOne" onmouseover="this.src='imageOnehover.png'" onmouseout="this.src='imageOne'" /></a>
