1) Script Title: Anylink Drop Down Menu

2) Script URL (on DD): http://www.dynamicdrive.com/dynamicindex1/dropmenuindex.htm

3) Describe problem: I've just tried setting up several drop down menus on a website I'm just starting up - http://kingslynnstars.sitesled.com. I've got two menus working, but when I try adding more, none of them show, not even the ones that were working before!

Here's the CSS and script that actually work with the current two menus I have:


<style type="text/css">

#dropmenudiv{
position:absolute;
border:1px solid #0000C0;
border-bottom-width:0;
font-family:tahoma;
font-size:12px;
z-index:100;
font-weight:bold;
}

#dropmenudiv a{
width:100%;
display:block;
text-indent:3px;
border-bottom:1px solid #0000C0;
padding:1px 0;
text-decoration:none;
font-weight:bold;
font-size:12px;
font-family:tahoma;
}

#dropmenudiv a:hover{ /*hover background color*/
background-color:#FFFFC0;
}

</style>

<script type="text/javascript">

Here's the other menu codes that I want added into the previous script, that don't actually end up working I might add:


//Contents for menu 3
var menu3=new Array()
menu3[0]='<a href="http://smg.photobucket.com/albums/v257/em1500uk/Kings%20Lynn%20Stars%20Speedway">Emma's (Unofficial)</a>'
menu3[1]='<a href="http://community.webshots.com/user/klstars">Steve's (Official)</a>'

//Contents for menu 4
var menu4=new Array()
menu4[0]='<a href="http://starsrus.proboards3.com/index.cgi">Unofficial Fan Forum</a>'
menu4[1]='<a href="http://speedwayupdates.proboards60.com/index.cgi">Speedway Updates</a>'


Here's the code where the menu actually is on my page:


<tr>
<td colspan="3" id="menu" align="center">
<a href="http://kingslynnstars.sitesled.com/index.shtml"><b>Home</b></a>&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;<a href="default.htm" onClick="return clickreturnvalue()" onMouseover="dropdownmenu(this, event, menu1, '150px')" onMouseout="delayhidemenu()"><b>Rider Profiles</b></a>&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;<a href="default.htm" onClick="return clickreturnvalue()" onMouseover="dropdownmenu(this, event, menu2, '150px')" onMouseout="delayhidemenu()"><b>News/Archives</b></a>&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;<a href="default.htm" onClick="return clickreturnvalue()" onMouseover="dropdownmenu(this, event, menu3, '150px')" onMouseout="delayhidemenu()"><b>Pictures</b></a>&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;<a href="default.htm" onClick="return clickreturnvalue()" onMouseover="dropdownmenu(this, event, menu4, '150px')" onMouseout="delayhidemenu()"><b>Forums</b></a>
</td>
</tr>


Why are the new menus not showing up, along with the previously working ones when I add the news ones in?!

An element can only have ONE id. Having more than one menu with the id "menu" is invalid.

So how do I solve my problem exactly? I'm sorry I'm somewhat of a novice at this stuff lol.

Actually no maybe not :confused: I had it working a little while ago with four menus and now I've added two more on, it's not working again...
