  • HV Menu Problem - Disappearing sublevels?

    Hi everyone,

    I was hoping someone might be able to help me out. I just installed the following menu system:

    and I'm having a bit of trouble. I have installed the version of the script that works on pages that include frames, and everything is working fine except that when a new webpage is loaded into the frame that is supposed to display content, the menu stops working. In fact, it seems to "freeze" and stay highlighted on whichever menu item I last picked. The drop-down functionality also stops (submenu items fail to appear, as though they are "blocked" by the newly-loaded content page). Do you have any idea what I might be doing wrong?

    The URL of my site is:

    and the .js file reads as follows:

    doesn't look like a problem at all, just looks like all the menus are opening up underneathe the frame.

    you could either use an iframe instead, or...
    this is for a different script i think but it's about the same kinda problem.

      very simple problem you have

      you mustn't have been reading the installation for frameset completely I guess, you missing a line in the body

      <body onload="javascript:{if(parent.frames[0]&&parent.frames['leftFrame'].Go)parent.frames['leftFrame'].Go()}>

      you must have that in every pages that opens in the content, I tried it without that line after I saw your thread and thats the problem

      hope this works for you, let me know!
