Show-menu on top of Image. Not Working!!!

What I have now is a navigation menu of all images in a vertical column. When you mouseover the an image link it calls the "show-menu" command and displays the submenu over the moused-over image, it covers it completely. I got all this to work fine except for the fact that you have to put your mouse over the very lefthand corner of the link to get the submenu to show over the image. If you mouseover the center or even the rightside of the link, the submenu will flicker and not do anything......any suggestions?

Only thing that comes immediately to mind is that your values for suboffset_top and suboffset_left might need to be adjusted. These determine where the submenu will open relative to the main menu item that opens it. Maybe increase the left offset, to move the opening position of the submenu further away from the main menu. Just a guess. If that doesn't work, perhaps you could post a url that we could visit to get a better idea of the problem?

Thanks for the reply Kevin.....I understand what you mean about changing the values of suboffset_top and suboffset_left. But I dont want to have the submenu away from the menu, I want the submenu to rollover and cover the main menu. Think of it as having a link(image) and when you mouse over the image, the rollover effect(show_menu) does a gradient filter from left to right and covers that image. I'm using this rollover to display more info about the link thay are about to click.

All of this works fine, except for the fact that you have to mouseover the very lefthand corner of the link to get it to work. It flickers and stops if you mouseover any other part of the image, almost like it's calling the mouseon & mouseoff at the same time because the rollover is going over the main image.

Any other suggestions?
