note: i didn't search for the right terms before i posted this thread, and just found another thread where people are talking about my issue. i left my message up in this thread in case anyone cares, but the thread with the main convo is here:

in my web folder directory, i'd like to have folders to separate different areas of the web site, such as "products", "services", "support", etc. in my menu_data.js file, i have submenu aIs that look similar to this:


my problem is that when i click on a link such as this, then click on another, i'm sent to "products/products/proxim.asp" instead of only one "products". i'd rather not have to put in absolute links in my aIs, but does anyone have a solution?

thanks all. hopefully i explained that well enough, but if not, i'm sure you'll tell me. ;)

You need a leading / in the URL; e.g., /products/proxim.asp, etc.

yes, once i found the other thread, i saw this suggestion, and it works. :) thanks. however, i do still have a problem, if you want to lend your brain to it.

on the test site ( ), click on "products". (yes it's a link, even though it doesn't look like it. *sigh*) i have the milonic code set so the menu item corresponding to the page you're on is colored differently (pagebgcolor="#ffe699"). however, when you're on the products page, "home" is also highlighted in the darker brown color. any idea why that would be?

also note that if i have my milonic code to say:
then "products" isn't highlighted brown. if i put a / at the end, this is when both "home" and "products" are highlighted.

my menu_data file can be found here:
