Which version of the menu are you using? The V5 menu does not use frames.

Please post a URL so we can see what problems you are having.

I think you will find that cat is using IFRAMES as I too have the problem that the sub menu's drop down behind any IFRAME already on display.

If anyone can come up with a solution I'm listening.

Andy, just to let you know I have now completed the move from frames to IFRAMES and apart from the problem here everything looks OK.

Version 5 should display over top of iframes without any intervention right out of the box. Interesting how you are having problems. Do you have a URL or code we could look at (of both the page and the menu_data)? Make sure you have an id and name set inside the iframe. Also try putting the iframes ID in the menus hidediv declaration (hidediv=iframeID;) but I doubt it will do anything since the menu should do it automatically.

If you look at sample 11 "Opening Windows and Frames" this shows the problem perfectly?

I have tried putting the "hidediv" in to the menu but as you thought this has no effect.

If you want to look at my site "" try the product catalogue sub menu, this shows the problem perfectly as I have only semi hidden the sub menu.

Its your browser. Both pages work perfectly over on my side. What browser are you using? (type, version, hotfixes, etc)

Yes, I was worried that this would be the answer, I am currently using MSIE5, I have been attempting to upgrade to either 5.5 or even 6 for the last few weeks but without success as the install keeps falling over. I am afraid it is looking like a full re-install of windows, ah well I need to upgrade from 98 anyway.

Thanks for the confirmation.

Now I feel kinda bad. But then again, this will be good for you. Go out and get yourself a fresh copy of IE and Windows, it will be well worth it. :D
