Openstyle=up with mouseover does not work

I am trying to create a menu on the footer of the page that goes up from a image mouseover event. I have set the openstyle=up and even set the offset in the popup funtion to negative the height of the menu to make it appear above.

Here is a link to a page working ok:

But if the page gets to long(grows) or is viewed a computer with res 800x600 the menu does not apper above anymore. But appear over top of the image. I think it has something to do with how the menu is drawn when the page first loads.

Here is a link with the footer menu not working right: ... ration.php
You can see the problem if you put your mouse over the bottom menu(footer menu)

I was looking at the spos and DBMenu funtions as a possible work around but do not know how to find the x/y of the image location.

I need to find a solution to this problem as I hope the purchase the menu this week but cannot until I fix the problem.

Thanks for your help,

Try putting ignoreCollisions = true; at the top of the menu data file

ignoreCollisions = true;

Sorry it took so long for me to find that option. It seems to work.

THANKS RUTH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

You have not idea how long I have sent trying to figure out why the pop-up menu would not work right and how to get around it.

Thanks again, you have saved me one big headache.

Yes, I do!!! I've been trying things for awhile and I only found the solution by accident when I was looking up an explanation on Boolean retainClickValue and happened to see the ignoreCollisions there.

You might take a look at the menu quick reference guides. There are reference guides for Global variables, Methods and Functions, Global properties, and the style, menu and item properties. You'll find the link on the main site menu under the DHTML Menu section. I've got some links below also.

Glad it worked.
