Drop down menu not going through after powerCMS

Drop down menu not going through after powerCMS

I am having a strange drop down menu problem that has me stumped after several deletes and re-installations of the local server, remote server and database.(in order to make sure nothing got screwed up and could start fresh)

The problem is i have a drop down menu that uses javascript i believe, which works just fine in Dreamweaver on live view after i have turned the site over to powerCMS but for life of me cant get the drop down menu's to drop In a live browser. I have tried different browsers and pc's with no luck.

the steps i have taken for this problem to occur was i took a normal, functioning and live html site and turned it into powerCMS, i did however forget to turn the rest of the files aside from the index to php until after it installed.. not sure if that's the issue?

Also I tried putting the main nav links into cms for cms editing the first time around which is when I ran into the initial problem of the drop down menu being locked or stuck.

They are currently not in cms for editing and I deleted the database because I thought that might have been the problem, hope that helps.

I will send picture of exactly what i am talking about and hopefully we can go from there.

Thanks!I

viewing your page in fire fox, the Fire Bug error console shows error messages in the jsmoothmenu js files. see attached scrre shot.

seems to be a probelm in the menu script.

Its strange because it seems to work fine in dreamweaver put not live, it was working fine before i used Power CMS so this is a CMS related problem which is why i am asking because i was hoping this conflict has happened before.

Since it works in dreamweaver i dont really know how to trouble shoot.

I just replaced the ddsmoothmenu with a fresh one and do not see any difference.

i will attach the file itself maybe you can see something that might be conflicting with PowerCMS software?


Anyway you can take over my screen and help solve this one? As id really like to know why this happened for future projects.

Thanks
Erik

Do you have a copy of the page with a working menu on it? I would nee to see the menu working in order to compare and troubleshoot.

Here is a URL to live template that i am using for my site with the links working:
http://www.templatemo.com/templates/templatemo_355_work_center/

Is that what you are talking about? If not can you be very specific, do you need me to copy and paste the Dreamweaver code of a page where the link is working?

the menu code on the page that is not working is not valid markup.

on the page where it is working, the nested li elements are properly closed where it is not working, they are not properly closed.


for example, on the page where the menu is not working, the menu code is:

<ul>
<li><a href="index.php" class="selected">Home</a></li>
<li><a href="about.php">Company</a>
<ul>
<li><span class="top"></span><span class="bottom"></span></li>
<li><a href="about.html">About Us</a></li>
<li><a href="portfolio.html">Portfolio</a></li>
<li><a href="development_team.html">Development Team</a></li>
</ul>
<li><a href="website_packages.php">Services</a>
<ul>
<li><span class="top"></span><span class="bottom"></span></li>
<li><a href="additional_services.html">Additional Services</a></li>
<li><a href="our_proccess.html">Client Process</a></li>
<li><a href="website_packages.html">Web Packages</a></li>
<li><a href="contract_Agreement.html">Contract</a></li>
</ul>
</li>
<li><a href="blog.php">Blog</a></li>
<li><a href="contact.php">Contact</a></li>
</ul>



in the code for the first nested menu for the company link:

<li><a href="about.php">Company</a>
<ul>
<li><span class="top"></span><span class="bottom"></span></li>
<li><a href="about.html">About Us</a></li>
<li><a href="portfolio.html">Portfolio</a></li>
<li><a href="development_team.html">Development Team</a></li>
</ul>
<li><a href="website_packages.php">Services</a>




the company li tag does not get closed, it should be:

<li><a href="about.php">Company</a>
<ul>
<li><span class="top"></span><span class="bottom"></span></li>
<li><a href="about.html">About Us</a></li>
<li><a href="portfolio.html">Portfolio</a></li>
<li><a href="development_team.html">Development Team</a></li>
</ul>
</li>
<li><a href="website_packages.php">Services</a>
