Hi Stu. Great work as usual with both of these sliding door drop line menus.

Just an fyi: In FF, Opera, and IE6, the last tab clicked on stays highlighted even while hovering on the other tabs; I just wasn't sure if that was your intent or not.

I'm glad I grabbed your feed last time!

BillyG, a click on a tab would normally take you to another page where the highlight would be removed. I will get round to a PHP answer to this in a similar manner to my previous menu. This may take a few days to produce though.

Gotcha. Thanks again.

yes, I noticed this too.

I was thinking it would take PHP to do that, so cool

Your sliding door navigation is great. I was wondering if there is a simple way to make the sub-nav appear above the main nav, instead of below. I have played around with this idea a bit, but it always blows up in firefox for me.

Hi Stu, cool sliding door menus.

My question has been asked previously but I can't seem to get the menu to display the tab you are currently in. I have created a second dummy page as suggested but it just defaults back to the Joseph Mallord William Turner > The Vale of Ashburnham link. Should my link code to this 2nd dummy page look similar to "2ndtestpage.php?current=two&sub=a". I have tried this and no luck yet.

Any help/suggestions would be appreciated

Aiden, the second dummy page should have the <ul class="current"> moved to current menu in your dummy page and <li class="current_sub"> moved to you current sub level in your dummy page.
You can use the the link you suggest and then use PHP to read this string:

if (isset($_GET['current'])) $current = $_GET['current'];
if (isset($_GET['sub'])) $sub = $_GET['sub'];

Then use $current and $sub to write 'current' and 'current_sub' into the current selected menu.
This does require a knowledge of simple PHP if/else and echo.

Hi Stu

Thanks for the tip, I have been looking at over the wkend and I think I know what I need to do. I really appreciate the help.

Hello Stu,
Thanks a lot for all your great work. Could you explain a bit on the conditional stuff you use in this menu? I am trying to understand what's happening, but I don't get it yet...
