CSS menu- clicking on plus sign opens link

Hi, please go to: http:// codedivasites dot com slash Hampden

On the navigation menu, which I got from http://www.mycssmenu.com/, if you click on the plus sign it's just supposed to open the submenu, but instead it takes you to the page of the parent category (Click on the plus sign by About us and it starts to open the submenu then abruptly takes you to the about us page).

Can anyone help? Thanks.

If you change the href from about.html to javascript:void(0) it'll work fine.



<a href="javascript:void(0)" class="qmparent"><span style="display: block; position: relative; font-size: 1px; line-height: 0px; z-index: 1; left: 172px; top: 2px;" qmvbefore="1" isibullet="1"><img width="13" height="13" src="img/main_plus.gif" style="border-width: 0px; position: absolute;"></span>About Us</a>

hmm.. but I want to be able to click on the words about us and go to the about us page. Somewhere that anchor tag encompasses the image, and that's what I want to change. Does that make sense?

Right. Gotcha.

It looks like the image is being added by your Javascript file (menu.js) to any anchor with a class of qmparent.

I guess you'll have to edit the menu.js file, but I can't really help you with that. Sorry.

Ok, thanks- hopefully a JS expert will jump in, if not I'll re-enter the question with just js as the catagory. :)

Hello mel200,

It looks like the menu you use, does not permit it that way.  A menu item row can only be used (the image and/or the text)
to 'roll open' the sub menu items. Just like the 'Other features' menu item does in your example.
It seems the mycssmenu site (via customize) does not offer what you want for this menu.
