In menu_data.js I have the following line;

aI("text=About Us;url=about_us.htm/;");

which doesn't seem to work. The correct url opens in the browser window but nothin' appears until I hit the refresh button.

If I change this to

aI("text=About Us;url=;");


aI("text=About Us;url=;");

then it works fine. Any reason ? or any fixes ?

Try adding a "/" in front of you "htm" file. Leave off the ending "/"

aI("text=About Us;url=/about_us.htm;");

If you have sub-directories that you want to access then you would use the following format:

aI("text=About Us;url=/sub-dir/about_us.htm;");

Bob is correct.

Rule of Thumb...

When a directory is the last item in a URL, use a closing /.

When a file if the last item in a URL, never use a closing /.
