I've used MaxiMenuCK on a couple of j1.6 sites and recently decided to update a j1.5.23 site and include MaxiMenuCK.

What is odd is that the default menu has no effects on hover, nothing looks different if I change any settings in the modules configuration, and for some reason there are 2 default templates and they're identical.

What am I missing? I've looked at the CSS can't for the life of me figure out why I'm not seeing any affects on my basic 4 item menu with no submenus.

Is there something wrong with the latest release?

This is 'hidden' on a live site and all of the actual menu links will take you to the public site with an older template but its enough to see that the hover animation etc isn't working.

sportsfieldspecialties.com/index.php?opt...le&id=236&Itemid=467

Its very odd.

I said, this was a non-public TEST PAGE, that is entirely your menu on the single page I linked to you. All the other pages are using the superfish menu component which I'd like to replace with maximenu, HENCE THE TEST.

What is on that page is 100% fresh default install of MaxiMenuCK, I re-downloaded / installed it yesterday to be sure and there are no effects that work and as I said, for some reason you've included in the package 2 default templates that are IDENTICAL.

That part you can verify just by opening up the zip file.

by looking in this forum you would have seen that the fancy only work if there is an active item in the menu (if not the fancy has no way to work)

Put a link that point to your page and the fancy will be active after enabling the option in the module params

Sorry it never occurred to me that a menu system wouldn't work right if it didn't contain the active item. Since I've NEVER encountered that before in the 7+ years I've used Joomla / Mambo. I had no reason to search for that, the searches I did do returned zip for results so I posted.

I use several menus on any given page, what you've just told me is that their effects won't work right if the menus don't each contain the active page as a menu item. That makes maximenuCK totally useless to any site that requires multiple menus on the same page.

This is good to know, it means I should move on and find a better solution.

only the fancy effect needs an active item as it focus on it
for all other behavior the menu works fine even if there is no active item
if you wan to change colors on active or hovered items you can use css
