Have you tried including the cfAjaxImport Tag?

<cfajaximport tags="cfmenu">

there is no access to cfide folder on your server

this needs to be available for cfmenu to work

THANKS!! that wasnt totally it however it led me into the right direction...i copied the CFIDE folder under the default website to the darrneepdersen.com root and it is wokring now...is that what needs to be done.  permissions seemed ok on the default website but copying to this site did it...

does the CFIDE folder need to be under every site root?

"does the CFIDE folder need to be under every site root?"

every site that uses all the fun stuff in CF8 (cfmenu, cfform, cfwindow etc)  needs access to cfide

 what most do is create virtual directories for each site rather than copy it to each site.

just remember to remove access to cfide/administrator on production servers
