Multiple Menu Items are Highlighted

Multiple Menu Items are Highlighted

Hi all,
When my web page first loads, there are two menu (Products and Services) items that are highlighted (as if you were on one of those pages). Once you click on any menu item the problem goes away. This seems to reproduce itself on multiple platforms and browsers. Any ideas?

I'd also like to have the main menu item highlight when the sub item page is selected. When in the Design portion of CSS Menu Writer, I have Level 1 selected and under the Current tab I have "Top level of current page" selected. Which, I think, means highlight the top level menu item when a sub item page is selected.

You can see it here: www.westsidebeautysupply.com.

Thanks for any help anyone can provide!

the multiple menu items that are being highlighted is because those menu items do not have a link.



the highlighted menu item is determined by the URL

if you visit the home page by:
index.html

then only the home link is highlighted, but using the address:
www.westsidebeautysupply.com/

will highlight the products and services items because they do not have a page linked.


to hightlight the top level of the current menu selection, change:

<script type="text/javascript">if(window.attachEvent) { window.attachEvent("onload", function() { cssmw1.intializeMenu('cssmw1',{select_current: 2, orientation: 1}); }); } else if(window.addEventListener) { window.addEventListener("load", function() { cssmw1.intializeMenu('cssmw1',{select_current: 2, orientation: 1}); }, true); }</script>




to:

<script type="text/javascript">if(window.attachEvent) { window.attachEvent("onload", function() { cssmw1.intializeMenu('cssmw1',{select_current: 1, orientation: 1}); }); } else if(window.addEventListener) { window.addEventListener("load", function() { cssmw1.intializeMenu('cssmw1',{select_current: 1, orientation: 1}); }, true); }</script>
