3) Describe problem:

I am using a drop down menu, the only issue I have is that when I click on one of the items in the menu it loads my picture in a new window and not in a frame in the same window as it is supposed to. Here is the relevant coding:

1) Script Title:

2) Script URL (on DD):

Warning: Please include a link to the DD script in question in your post. See this thread (http://www.dynamicdrive.com/forums/showthread.php?t=6) for the proper posting format when asking a question.

Please post a link to the page on your site that contains the problematic code so we can check it out.

Your page/code is in violation of Dynamic Drive's usage terms (http://www.dynamicdrive.com/notice.htm), which, among other things, state that the script credit must appear in the source code of the page(s) using the script. Please reinstate the notice first.

Without the resources (scripts and images) for the code you give, it is hard to diagnose this. That's why I ask for a link to your page and a link to the scripts on DD.

To avoid a DD usage terms violation, you need to include the script credit for the thumbnail script. I know that perhaps your actual page may have it, but I don't see it in your code from your post.

Just in general, the thumbnail script needs to initialize the content from the menu script, but the menu script only adds the content to the page on demand, not as the page is loading as is expected by the thumbnail script.
