1) Script Title: AnyLink Drop Down Menu

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

3) Describe problem:
First i cut and pasted to see how it would work with the text "as is".
Once I updated with my information it wouldn't work.
I'm not sure what I did wrong but would love any suggestions.
I was able to see the menu with the titles...but no mouseover drop down...
PLEASE help!!

Thanks:confused:

It would be better if you post either a link to your page or your source so that we can check the problem.

well, for one, you are missing the array declarations for menus 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, and 9. Add the appropriate missing line, like the one in red, in these 7 places. For example:
//Contents for menu 3,
var menu3=new Array()
Menu3[0]='<a href="http://www.thegiftwhiz.com/smallbakcpack.html">Small Backpack</a>'
Menu3[1]='<a href="http://www.thegiftwhiz.com/mediumbackpack.html">Medium Backpack</a>'and you also may have a spelling error in 'smallbakcpack.html'
