Hi
I have a menu that is included in all my pages.
When the menu item is clicked it opens a new page and the clicked item changes his color to magenta this, is perfect.
Each Item has a submenu the problem starts when i open one of the submenu pages, the submenu disappear and i can see only the parent menu, this is wrong the submenu items should be visible and the clicked submenu item should be magenta:

the following is the left menu code:

<div id="logo">
<a href="index.php"><img src="images/logo.png" /></a>
</div>
<div id="left">
<?php
// include functions
include_once('includes/functions.php');
// array to hold left menu and submenu items
$left_menu_items = array(
'book.php' => array(
'text' => 'Book Design',
'submenu' => array('book1.php' => array('text' => 'book1'),
'book2.php' => array('text' => 'book2'),
'book3.php' => array('text' => 'book3'),
'book4.php' => array('text' => 'book4')
)
),
'identityDesign.php' => array(
'text' => 'Identity Design',
'submenu' => array('ID_1.php' => array('text' => 'ID_1'),
'ID_2.php' => array('text' => 'ID_2'),
'ID_3.php' => array('text' => 'ID_3'),
'ID_4.php' => array('text' => 'ID_4')
)
),
'logos.php' => array(
'text' => 'Logos'),
'packaging.php' => array(
'text' => 'Package Design',
'submenu' => array('packaging.php#title' => array('text' => 'title'),
'packaging.php#title1' => array('text' => 'title11'),
'packaging.php#title2' => array('text' => 'title2'),
'packaging.php#title3' => array('text' => 'title3'),
'packaging.php#title4' => array('text' => 'title4')
)
),
'index.php' => array('text' => 'Selected Projects'),
);
// call the function that draws the menu
echo '<div id="leftMenu">' . draw_menu($script_name, $left_menu_items) . '</div>',
'<div class="hr"><hr /></div>';
echo '<div id="submenu">' . draw_sub_menu($script_name, $left_menu_items) . '</div>';
?>
</div>

And this is the "function.php" code:

<?php
// function to draw menu (top and left)
function draw_menu($script, $items, $div_id) {
// start the list for the menu
$menu = ' <ul id="list-nav">';
// loop through the array with menus and submenus
foreach($items as $url => $val) {
$text = $val['text'];
if($script == $url) {
// if the item in the array is the current page, highlight it
$menu .= '<li><a style="color:#eb0089" href="#nogo"> '. $text . ' </a></li>';
} else {
// else display it as usual link
$menu .= '<li><a href="' . $url . '">' . $text . '</a></li>';
}
}
// end the list
$menu .= '</ul>';
return $menu;
}
// function to draw submenu below the main menu on left side
function draw_sub_menu($script, $items) {
// find the correct submenu items to draw
foreach($items as $url => $val) {
// if the current page is on the top level (index.php, book.php...)
if($script == $url) {
if(isset($val['submenu']) && !empty($val['submenu'])) {
$submenu = draw_menu($script, $val['submenu']);
return $submenu;
} else {
return '';
}
}
// if the current page is not on the top level, examine each submenu entry
if(isset($val['submenu']) && !empty($val['submenu'])) {
if($script == $val['submenu']['url']) {
$submenu = draw_menu($script, $val['submenu']);
return $submenu;
}
}
}
// if no submenus were drawn return empty string
return '';
}
?>

Thanks in advance for your help

Each Item has a submenu the problem starts when i open one of the submenu pages, the submenu disappear and i can see only the parent menu, this is wrong the submenu items should be visible and the clicked submenu item should be magenta

Is there like DB to fetch those books and title?

Plus why did you post the same thread twice in one day?
