Hi Tom,

There's something in Milonic's menu, you have to declare a _certain_ line only once, otherwise you break the code. In the menu array files you should have something that reads:

//The following line is critical for menu operation, and MUST APPEAR ONLY ONCE. If you have more than one menu_array.js file rem out this line in subsequent files
menunum=0;menus=new Array();_d=document;function addmenu(){menunum++;menus[menunum]=menu;}function dumpmenus(){mt="<script language=javascript>";for(a=1;a<menus.length;a++){mt+=" menu"+a+"=menus["+a+"];"}mt+="<\/script>";_d.write(mt)}
//Please leave the above line intact. The above also needs to be enabled if it not already enabled unless this file is part of a multi pack.

Be _very_ careful if you server-side-generate your content, just in case you'd be including this line several times. We all do that at times, and then it doesn't work and we wonder why. Is it solving your problem?
