Try re-implementing the script. It appears none of the dynamic features are working.

I have had the same problem as the person above.

His HTML files and my HTML files both have this line at the beginning of our HTML files:

<!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD XHTML 1.0 Transitional//EN" "http://www.w3.org/TR/xhtml1/DTD/xhtml1-transitional.dtd">

When I comment out this tag the Menu works fine. It moves down and up when you scroll. But when you put back in that tag the menu won't work.

cr3ative can you explain this as to why this DOCType tag is stopping the menu from working. Or anyone else who might know why this is happening. Because all my HTML files has the DOCTYPE tag in them.

Thanks,
sm30

Ah yes, this has happened before.

Strict doc types stop some complex scripts from working. The next revision of the script might include a fix, but that could be years away :(

Is it necessary to have a DOCType in your HTML files?

What are the pro's and con's?

Thanks for your help.

You might try adjusting the Doc type to the following:

<!DOCTYPE HTML PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD HTML 4.01 Transitional//EN"
"http://www.w3.org/TR/html4/loose.dtd">

It should allow the script to function properly, but still indicates what type of HTML/XHTML you are using.

It may not be quite correct, but until more of the "kinks" are worked out, using HTML 4.01 DOC tags may be best. Especially seeing as the DOC tag referenced by sm30 is listing it as a "transistional" document.

Thanks, I will try this. But will any code or tags act or display different beacuse of the Doctype change?

It shouldn't. There was no change in action/reaction on a page I made when I modified that DOC line
