    Default AnyLink dropDown Menu

    1) Script Title: AnyLink Drop Down Menu

    2) Script URL (on DD):

    3) Describe problem: I have 4 menus in a horizontal menu that use the script. If I select the second one that path is remembered when I go to the next.
    This is only stored locally at the moment.
    EG if I select file:///C:/Scas_Archive_Zavone/SCAS%20Website%2007/CoCurriculum/sport.htm
    then any menu I go to after this takes the CoCurriculm folder as part of the default path (And then does not find the page)
    Basically it should leave out CoCurriculum and go to the About folder.

    Details: These are my menus in the code
    <li id="first"><a href="index.htm" onClick="return dropdownmenu(this, event, menu1, '200px')" onMouseout="delayhidemenu()">About SCAS</a></li>
    <li><a href="../Curriculum/CurriculumJunior.htm">Junior School</a></li>
    <li><a href="../Curriculum/CurriculumMiddle.htm">Middle School</a></li>
    <li><a href="../Curriculum/CurriculumSecondary.htm">Secondary School</a></li>
    <li><a href="index.htm" onClick="return dropdownmenu(this, event, menu2, '200px')" onMouseout="delayhidemenu()">Co-Curricular</a></li>
    <li><a href="index.htm" onClick="return dropdownmenu(this, event, menu3, '200px')" onMouseout="delayhidemenu()">Parents</a></li>
    <li><a href="../CoCurriculum/pastoralCare.htm">Pastoral Care</a></li>
    <li><a href="../Curriculum/kla.htm">Faculties</a></li>
    <li><a href="index.htm" onClick="return dropdownmenu(this, event, menu4, '200px')" onMouseout="delayhidemenu()">General Information</a></li>

    These are my arrays
    //About SCAS
    var menu1=new Array()
    menu1[0]='<a href="About/Background.htm">Background</a>'
    menu1[1]='<a href="About/Mission.htm">Mission</a>'
    menu1[2]='<a href="About/Prospectus.htm">Prospectus</a>'
    menu1[3]='<a href="About/staff.htm">Staff</a>'
    menu1[4]='<a href="FindUs/Location.htm">Find Us</a>'
    menu1[5]='<a href="FindUs/faq.htm"> FAQ </a>'

    var menu2=new Array()
    menu2[0]='<a href="">Creative Arts</a>'
    menu2[1]='<a href="CoCurriculum/outdoorEd.htm">Duke Of Edinburgh</a>'
    menu2[2]='<a href="CoCurriculum/sport.htm">Sport</a>'
    menu2[3]='<a href="CoCurriculum/pastoralCare.htm">Pastoral Care</a>'
    menu2[4]='<a href="CoCurriculum/library.htm">Library</a>'

    var menu3=new Array()
    menu3[0]='<a href="Parents/ScheduleFees.htm">Schedule of Fees</a>'
    menu3[1]='<a href="Parents/VolunteerDeclaration.htm">Volunteer Declaration</a>'
    menu3[2]='<a href="Parents/termDates.htm">Term Dates</a>'
    menu3[3]='<a href="#">Newsletters</a>'
    menu3[4]='<a href="">Student Permission Notes</a>'
    menu3[5]='<a href="Parents/calendar.htm">Calandar</a>'

    //General Information
    var menu4=new Array()
    menu4[0]='<a href="GeneralInformation/ExpoWeek.htm">Expo Week</a>'
    menu4[1]='<a href="Employment/positions.htm">Positions Vacant</a>'
    menu4[2]='<a href="images/siteImages/TVPromo.mpeg" >TV Promo</a>'
    menu4[3]='<a href="GeneralInformation/SchContacts.htm">School Contacts</a>'
    menu4[4]='<a href="GeneralInformation/Uniforms.htm">Uniforms</a>'
    menu4[5]='<a href="GeneralInformation/Scholarships.htm">Academic Scholarships</a>'
    menu4[6]='<a href="GeneralInformation/canteen.htm">Canteen</a>'
    menu4[7]='<a href="GeneralInformation/pf.htm">P & F Association</a>'

    Any help is much appreciated as after I select the first menu it carries that path to all other menu selections.

    Many thanks

    Use the absolute path in the href attribute for all links and for all instances of the menu. Example absolute path:

    - John
