Q: The menu doesn't show the drop down sub items. If you would look at the script there are two sublinks for Accommodation which however is not visible when we are doing a mouseover. I have attached the revised data.js file with this mail. Please let me know if thre is anything else hat i need to look into.

A: You should set back color for your submenus.

For example you should create style and assign it for the subitems:
  var itemStyles = [

["Accommodation","#", "", "", "", "", "", "", "", ],
 ["|test1 text text","", "", "", "", "", "0", "", "", ], //style0
 ["|test2 text text text text","", "", "", "", "", "0", "", "", ],//style0

You should also set the following parameters:

  var itemAlign="left";
  var subMenuVAlign="bottom";

Q: We purchased the Deluxe Menu a few months ago and are extremely happy with the product. We have been getting great compliments about our new navigation system.

The menu has over 500 links and functions like a dream! One issue I am having, that I just cannot seem to figure out how to fix, is the following:

Our nav menu is displayed approx. 70 pixels from the top of the browser window. On the drop down links that have a number of items (example 1 in the image below), they display underneath the menu, however on the links that have only a few items, they display above the menu bar in java script as in example 2 in the image below.

How can I set it so that no matter how many drop-down items there are, they always display under the menu bar in java script, not on top?

A: Try to set the following parameter:

  var subMenuVAlign="top";
