Subdirectory Woes

First let me congratulate you on having a stable, usable menu! I have spent the last two weeks downloading and trying to configure a number of free versions of menus before choosing the one I will purchase for several websites. Yours is by FAR the leading candidate!

Still, I am having one glitch. While the submenus look good and open fine, when I go to a page called by the submenu which resides in a subdirectory of my website, I cannot leave it. If I go to /links/business.html then want to go from there to services/dsl.html, I find myself with no page being displayed and the address bar reading http://www.povn.com/links/services/dsl.html. Sometimes this will happen within the subdirectory. Suggestions? Help appreciated!

PS I found the suggestion of using the new version and downloaded but the zip file didn't seem to include any installation instructions or familiar looking file names.

What is the URL of your problem site? We really need to see your code to be able to help efficiently.

If I go to /links/business.html then want to go from there to services/dsl.html, I find myself with no page being displayed and the address bar reading http://www.povn.com/links/services/dsl.html.

You're using server-relative addressing, which is great, but - you're missing a / in front of services... . As it is the computer is doing exactly what you asked. Try /services/dsl.html.

As for docs - ain't none (yet). As soon as Andy gets the release of v5 out [he says] the docs come next. :roll: For now, follow the included examples and go from there. That's what we've all done.

Questions always welcome, of course, but try it first. :D
