Hi Guys

I am also having a similar problem, but mine is in all browsers.

I am using dropdowntabs.js and css ddcolortabs.

You can find my code here www.devonmusiccollective.com/home2b.php & www.devonmusiccollective.com/refurb.php. The link from 1st to 2nd is via the lighthouse link on the dropdown menu.

I have the following code on each page in the HEAD
<script type="text/javascript" src="js/dropdowntabs.js"></script>
The css in in my main css file
<link href="css/dmcstyle2.css" rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" />
The main menu code in in an include which is menu.php

<table width="100%" border="0">
<td><div id="colortab" class="ddcolortabs">
<li><a href="home2b.php" title="Home"><span>Home</span></a></li>
<li><a href="refurb.php" title="About Us"><span>About Us</span></a></li>
<li><a href="refurb.php" title="lighthouse"><span>The Lighthouse</span></a></li>
<li><a href="http://www.dynamicdrive.com/style/" title="fog" rel="dropmenu1_a"><span>Fog Media</span></a></li>
<li><a href="http://www.dynamicdrive.com/resources/" title="Partners" rel="dropmenu2_a"><span>Outreach Work</span></a></li>
<li><a href="http://tools.dynamicdrive.com" title="Useful Tools"><span>Weekly Activities</span></a></li>
<li><a href="http://tools.dynamicdrive.com" title="Gigs & Events"><span>Gigs & Events</span></a></li>

<div class="ddcolortabsline">&nbsp;</div>

<!--1st drop down menu -->

<script type="text/javascript">
//SYNTAX: tabdropdown.init("menu_id", [integer OR "auto"])
tabdropdown.init("colortab", 3)

As you can see I have not yet changed all the menu links.

My problem is that the sub menus show on the HOME page but not on the REFURB page.

Any help would be appreciated.

in your
is missing the
<script type="text/javascript" src="http://www.devonmusiccollective.com/js/dropdowntabs.js"></script>

try putting the link in ---- http://www.devonmusiccollective.com/
in all <script
and <link
<link href="http://www.devonmusiccollective.com/css/dmcstyle2.css" rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" />

How did I miss that? I thought I'd checked everything.

Thank you for your quick reply.
