Menu alignment across frames

I have successfully been able to make the submenus appear in another frame (that took a lot of work), but their alignment is not correct. If there are 5 top-level horizontal elements and element 1 is Home, the submenu for element 2 appears under element 1, all the way down the line. I have tried lots of different settings, but can't get it going. Do you know what value I should be setting? Thanks. Scott.

You guys have to help me. I am going nuts here trying to figure this out.

If I use the sample frames_header_array.js and rename submenu targets to use mine from the ..body..js, it still does it.

If I use the my ..header..js and the sample ..body..js, renaming the body's submenu names to mine, it still does it.

If I take everything out of the main frame's html file except for the calling of the js files, it still does it.

I have tried to tweak this in so many ways I can't remember all the different settings I have tried...offsets, top, width, borders, blahm blah, blah.

I cannot!!!!! figure this out. I am begging for mercy here. What the heck am I missing?

Well, I could not make it work. It was driving me crazy. I figured out that I could get the submenu to line up ONLY IF I also created a side frame the same width as the sample. If I adjusted the width of the side frame at all the submenu would move with it. But I WAS able to make it work by using someone else's 3.3.18 version that they were using. There is a person who posted a link to his website in the beta forum who got it to work. I am in his debt. If any of you continue to have problems, check his site out...his callsign is One Sick Puppy.

I had the same problem. If the state field of your menu is "#" just replace it by the display name of the item e.g. news. That's it
