    I'm using IE7 on a box here at home and the menus only appear when you mouse over them.

    I've seen this before and I think it's a scripting error. One of the other edugeekers with better scripting knowledge will probably sort it for you.

    On the menu image that shows - home you have mainlevel_current, but not in the rest of the menus;

    <LI class=mainlevel_current><SPAN class=join></SPAN><SPAN
    class=document_open></SPAN><A class=mainlevel_current id=active_menu
    href="http://www2.chathamsouth.medway.sch.uk/index.php?option=com_frontpage&amp;Itemid=1">Home</A></LI>

    I put _current in another menu line and it shows up.

    Your 'home' menu image is showing ok in ie7, so there must be an extra bit of code missing on the menus not showing.

    So looking at your html, via view source on your website, underscore and the word current are in the coding for the home menu section for not for any other part of the menu section.

    Right this is the home menu part. I've made the word current in bold.

    <ul><li class="mainlevel_current"><span class="join"></span><span class="document_open"></span><a href="http://www2.chathamsouth.medway.sch.uk/index.php?option=com_frontpage&amp;Itemid=1" class="mainlevel_current" id="active_menu">Home</a></li>

    Now here's the news menu part you need to include _ current after mainlevel, I've highlighted it in bold.

    <li class="mainlevel"><span class="join"></span><span class="document"></span><a href="http://www2.chathamsouth.medway.sch.uk/index.php?option=com_content&amp;task=category&amp ;sectionid=2&amp;id=3&amp;Itemid=224" class="mainlevel">News</a></li>

    You don't need it on the sublevel parts of the menu.

    I do my website the old fashioned way with html, also handy to know if you are using software package to design website as sometimes tweaking the code is a way to get it to work!

    Is that a menu component Jody?

    I'm using one that looks exactly the same, it's SWMenuFree. Lots of configuration options in the backend - it is easy to set an option that screws it up in different browsers.

    See it on action on this site
