    Question Something's gone wonky with my menu. Suckerfish

    Hi there,
    I'm nearly done with this site, and I've modified the heck out of the template the client chose. But suddenly I've got an issue with my menus that wasn't there earlier. I'm sure I screwed something up in the CSS, but I've been staring at it for so long now I know it's at the point where I need a fresh pair of eyes. I originally posted in the CSS forum, but I'm told that this is actually a javascript menu and that I should post here instead.

    This is the development site: http://dev.yourbusybee.com/kaleco2/galleries/

    The issue is this:
    If you mouseover the menu item "Galleries" or "Color Bar", you get a nice drop-down. This is lovely. And you can mouseover and click on the first of these drop-downs. But if you try to mouse down any further, the menu disappears. AGHHHHHH

    But the menu works mostly ok on the homepage (there seem to be some slight spacing issues, but otherwise the dropdowns are clickable. Grrrrrr

    Is this a z-index thing? I don't know. I'm just frustrated.

    Any help will be greatly appreciated.

    Note: I don't pretend to be an expert at ALL. I fiddle around and figure stuff out.

    Maybe you could just post the relevant code for the menu here?

    I can just post the suckerfish javascript file in it's entirety, but other than that I'd have no idea what to post. I would think it would be something you need to see in action to trouble shoot. Is that not the case with javascript?

    This is a css, not a js issue. See my response to your post in that forum.
    Just for info, this is a css menu (try turning of js and you'll see the menu still works) with some js enhancements.
    Use the W3C HTML Validator and CSS Validator to check your code and Firebug to see what css is applied to an element

    Thank you again, SB65. I *thought* it was a CSS issue and was surprised when it was suggested that I post over here instead.
