    Sorry to keep bugging you, but you have been a tremendous help!

    I have uploaded my new problem with trying to get the drop down menu to load - can you help me with why the drop down portion isn't working? Thanks!!!!

    What script are you using?

    From the markup, the JavaScript initialisation doesn't look right - its referencing a menu id of "colortabs" but I don't see a menu with that id - just a "nav" id

    I was trying to get this to work without referencing a separate CSS sheet. I am very bad with CSS - so I didn't know how else to handle it since I was referencing the sheet that was created for the menu, and referencing your nav css code that you created for me.

    Thanks again for your help!

    Yes, you'll still need to change the JavaScript initialisation from "colortabs" to "nav" - that may be all that's needed but I can't check anything in detail as I'm on iPhone for a while now.

    I still think that one of the other 2 scripts will be easier for you to add-on though - did you try this one: http://www.dynamicdrive.com/dynamici...anylinkcss.htm (any particular reason why you went for the tabs instead?)

    It might help to use the standalone menu page that I made for you while you implement and style these drop-downs and then gradually build up the rest of your page around it again.

    Afterthought: make sure you use a valid DOCTYPE on you web page - not having one can cause scripts and some CSS to fail (or do unexpected things). Again, you can reference the page I provided for one.

    Also, I'm having a hard time with your page on iPhone - its taking a really long time to load so I imagine that your images will need optimising. You're using .png, but for photographs, .jpeg is standard, optimised to about 60-70% quality. Head over to the DD image optimisation tool to convert and optimise your pics. You might be surprised with how fast the page loads afterwards once the lightweight pics are being used: http://tools.dynamicdrive.com/imageoptimizer/
