1) Smooth Navigational Menu (v1.4), No drop down menu or arrows showing

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

3) Describe problem: Hi Guys, Great Script but I have a problem thats doing my brain in at the moment.

I have setup a test page for Smooth Navigational Menu (v1.4) here (http://www.trade-host.com/index2.php).

I followed the documentation, checked all the scripts and gone over them many times but try as I might I am unable to get the menu to display the drop down menus or the arrow images. The menu itself displays, but nothing else.

I am calling the menu externally and I have checked all paths.
I have an absolute path set for the arrow images but no matter what I do I cant get it to work properly.

Would someone be so kind as to take a look for me?

The arrows aren't showing because your ajax menu isn't properly loaded actually. The "mainmenuid" option inside your initialization code should point to the ID of your drop down menu (http://www.trade-host.com/lib/menu.htm), which it currently isn't:

<script type="text/javascript">

mainmenuid: "smoothmenu-ajax",
contentsource: ["smoothcontainer", "lib/menu.htm"] //"markup"


Change the part in red above to "smoothmenu1" instead.
