2) Script URL (on DD): http://www.dynamicdrive.com/style/csslibrary/item/suckertree-menu-vertical/

3) Describe problem:
I posted this queston the other day and did not get any response, is there a way to get the menu to open to the bottom, I can get it to go left or right, just not to the bottom. pleas help, also I cannot get the background color of the submenu to change color, it just stays white...

Hmm can you clarify what you mean by bottom? Bottom relative to what? Also see: http://www.dynamicdrive.com/style/csslibrary/item/suckertree-menu-horizontal/

hi thank you for responding here is the code I am using- If i change the java variable to be **style.top or bottom** it opens the sub menus to the top or bottom "relative to the button that has the mosuvoer, but the menu gets all jumbled up. I have the buttons stacked vertically in the menu. Here is what it looks like in html, i will also put the javascript, and css im using as well at the bottom. I am thinking it might be something in the css.
