Listmatic menu problem

P: 6
I'm trying use this code:

Listmatic 2 Blues Clues

to make a horizontal menu with horizonal submenus, using lists. I got the general code up, but I have two problems.

(1) I don't know why the submenu that goes with the sixth menu item is the one that is visible, instead of the submenu that goes with the first

(2) I don't know how to get the "current" function to work--this sets the text to bold for the menu and submenu that are currently being viewed.

Here is my attempt:

Adept Test

I've poured over this code and tried different things, but cannot resolve the issue. Can anyone see what the trouble is?

Always check the validator for your html errors and your css errors.

Thank you. I have now corrected all the errors that appeared.

Now can anyone help me work out the two issues above?

The sub menu items are there but you have used absolute positioning. AP removes those items from the normal flow. What you are seeing is the last item covering up the previous item and so on. To view them, change position:absolute to float:left to show they are there but that doesn't do you much good.

After studying this a little more, I see that absolute positioning is what he intended to use in the original code to cover up the other sub-menus. I'm starting to think this is a goofy way to go about it but it's too late in the evening for me to want to think that hard. I'll look at this again in the morning.

I figured it out.

OK, I didn't. My 19-year-old daughter did. I called her at college and she sent me the code. But at least I understand what she sent me.

Thanks very much for your help.
