menu headings disappear

I'm having trouble figuring out how to keep the menu headings and subheadings remain visable when you are on their current page. I've tried complete urls and that doesn't seem to work. Please see the code below.

fixMozillaZIndex=true; //Fixes Z-Index problem with Mozilla browsers but causes odd scrolling problem, toggle to see if it helps
_menuCloseDelay=500;
_menuOpenDelay=150;
_subOffsetTop=2;
_subOffsetLeft=-2;




with(menuStyle=new mm_style()){
bordercolor="#000000";
borderstyle="solid";
borderwidth=1;
fontfamily="Verdana, Tahoma, Arial";
fontsize="100%";
fontstyle="normal";
headerbgcolor="#a53118";
headercolor="#ffffff";
offbgcolor="#000000";
offcolor="a53118";
onbgcolor="#a53118";
oncolor="#ffffff";
outfilter="randomdissolve(duration=0.3)";
overfilter="Fade(duration=0.2);Alpha(opacity=90);Shadow(color=#777777', Direction=135, Strength=3)";
padding=4;
pagebgcolor="#000000";
pagecolor="black";
separatorcolor="#999999";
separatorsize=1;
subimage="images/white arrow.gif";
subimagepadding=2;
}

Hi,

If you're talking about the submenus remaining open when on a matched page then you need the openmenusbyurl.js module from here

http://www.milonic.com/menumodules.php

It's toward the bottom.

If I've misunderstood, could you tell me a little more about what you want?

Menu items blacked out

Hi Ruth,

Go to http://www.cchso.com and click on Meet The Orchestra - Chamber. Then notice the words Meet the Orchestra and Chamber now no longer show up. I tried adding the module openmenusbyurl.js along with the correct syntax but that didn't help.

Thanks,
Susan

Hi,

Actually, that module is to keep the submenu open when you are on a page that matches any item in it.

The reason your text is disappearing is because you have the offbgcolor as black [#000000] and the pagebgcolor as black [#000000] and the pagecolor as 'black'. So, when you get a page that matches the item the background color remains black and the text becomes black.

All the 'page' properties have to do with the 'you are here' highlighting type thing. So, either change your pagebgcolor to a different one, or change your pagecolor. Just as a suggestion, I think I might make the pagebgcolor the offcolor #a53118 and leave the pagecolor as black.
