I made a navigation bar in DW CS3 through the menu.
It works at first site, but when you click another link the former link disapears. When you hover over it it is back again.

Does someone recognizes this problem?
Thanks for the reaction in advance,

Do you have this uploaded to a site so we can see the css and images as well?

It might even be better it you zipped the files and uploaded them here.

I have enclosed the site in zip format.

Later today I will put it in : http://www.kamerorkest.com
The server is not working at this moment, so old stuff is on the site now.....

sorry for the inconvenience,


The zip file was not attached.

The zip file was not attached.

OK, you can look at http://www.kamerorkest.com

My server is online again.
There you can se the problem in IE.
In FF it works fine.....

After all that, I am unable to duplicate the problem in IE 7. I do not see anything disappearing when I click on a link.

OK, I am viewing in IE 6.0
It is possible to put code in it to let know IE 6.0 what to do?

Yes, it is possible...but it will take someone with more knowledge than I have to correct this issue in IE 6.

I am sorry I cannot help you here.

Hi there,

I have tested this page on IE7, IE6, IE5, FireFox, Opera, and Apple Safari, and i haven't seen anything disappearing when I click on a link.

I have tested both online and local copy both was same!

have you rectified the problem Already?
