Set the state of a drop down menu in a cookie
I would like to know if anyone can help me. I have created a javasript/CSS drop down menu that, when you click a menu header, a submenu appears. Click again and it dissapears. This is done using the CSS display attribute. The menu is shown on all pages in the site using a <!-- #file include.
When you click on a submenu item, the link takes you to the relevant page. The problem is that when the new page loads, the menu refreshes and all open sub menus close.
I would like to be able to save the state of the menu (i.e. what sub menus are showing), possibly as a session cookie, so that the user can navigate the site without having to open the menus on every page.
Is this possible?
And more importantly - can anyone give me a pointer on how to do it.
Unfortunately the site is on a restricted Intranet so I cannot give you a link. However, I can send the code to anyone who may be interested in helping.
Thanks in advance.
