    problems with pop up menus

    tsheridan
      I have a pop up menu that quit working. It's been working fine, I made some changes and now it won't work. When you scroll over the button, you see "javascript:;" in the bottom left corner, but the pop up menu will not appear. It works in both Dreamweaver & Fireworks when I preview in the browser however. I have tried exporting the files to their own folder, which is what I normally do. I have tried exporting them to the main directory where the pages are. I have tried having the mm_css_menu.js file in the pop up menu's directory and in the main directory, and in both! Why will it preview in the browser just fine and not work after I upload it? Funny thing is, this pop up menu has been working fine for years. the URL is www.tsheridanenterprises/Lazy S Morgans/lazy_s_morgans.htm. Thanks.

          I'd say the problem relates to the broken links in the code -

          <script language="JavaScript1.2" type="text/javascript"
          src="file:///C|/Documents and Settings/Theresa/My Documents/Dreamweaver8
          Webs/LazyS/lsm/image_map/mm_css_menu.js"></script>
          <link href="file:///C|/Documents and Settings/Theresa/My
          Documents/Dreamweaver8 Webs/LazyS/CSS/Level1_Verdana.css" rel="stylesheet"
          type="text/css" />
          ...snip...

          <script src="file:///C|/Documents and Settings/Theresa/My
          Documents/Dreamweaver8 Webs/LazyS/Scripts/AC_RunActiveContent.js"
          type="text/javascript"></script>


          Anything that starts with file:/// is broken. Note that there are 9
          consecutive broken links to the same stylesheet in the head of the page, as
          well.

          By the way, it's dangerous to leave spaces in your file/pathnames as you
          have here -
