    jQuery lavalamp issue

    Hi guys

    I'm trying out this lavalamp effect on my nav but it doesn't quiet do the trick..

    the effect works, but if I try clicking other links, nothing happens
    here's a live demo:



    those are the 2 pages I have, but i cant get the current page selected in the nav. and I also can't click the items in the nav to go from one page to the other. don't know what to do here...

    using these scripts
    <script type="text/javascript" src="js/jquery-1.7.2.min.js"></script>
    <script type="text/javascript" src="js/jquery.easing.min.js"></script>
    <script type="text/javascript" src="js/jquery.lavalamp.min.js"></script>  
    <script type="text/javascript">
            $(function() {
                    fx: "backout",
                    speed: 700,
                    click: function(event, menuItem) {
                        return false;
    hope anyone understands my problem..

    Element ids cannot begin with a number, so change these first.

    Your code returns false from the click event, telling it not to follow the links. Change it to return true. Added: I believe you can just delete "return false".

    Your code doesn't tell it to highlight the current link (?). Perhaps the lavalamp feature has a setting for this that you haven't set. Added add the class "current" to the current-page li-link. You can style it differently with css.

    thank you AndrewGSW

    I noticed the current class and placed it with the li already, that didn't do it.
    But then I tried changing the "false" into "true" and problem solved!

    didn't know it would be that easy

    thanks alot!
