Vertical menu maximum options allowed?

Hi there,
I have the vertical menu installed and running fine across most of the site. Here's an example:

However, I'm adding three new menu options and when I do, the entire menu shifts down on the page. Here's an example of the problem: ... vices.html

The only things that changed are the three new menu options.

I'm stumped about what might be causing this. Is there a maximum number of lines allowed in a vertical main menu?

Thanks for any insight...

Which browser is this? I'm not seeing the menu shift down, I am seeing it get longer.

You have a couple of problems. 1st, since this is relative positioned and you have all the files called in the table, you need to add buildAfterLoad=true; up at the top section of the menu_data file. See the sticky in this forum for the relative positioned table/div info.

Also, you have overflow="scroll"; in the main menu. You need to remove that unless you're going to specify a menu height and item height. The table is not going to 'constrain' the length of the menu, the table will instead just expand to accomodate whatever stuff is in it.

Sweet! That did the trick.
(I'm using IE 6, by the way.)

Thanks much,
