TOPIC: No submenu dropdowns if menu item is not active
No submenu dropdowns if menu item is not active

thanks for the wonderful JF Taman template.
I have the following issue/question:
When hovering the mouse cursor over root menu items in the menu bar, the sub-menu items will not automatically drop down. They will only drop down upon hovering when the page of that particular root menu item already is open.
In other words e.g. like this:
a) Have homepage open = Root menu item #1. Now hover over menu bar on root menu item #2: the menu item background color will change from grey to black. But no dropdown of the submenu item list of menu item #2!
b) Now click once on root menu item #2 to open its page. Now hover hover menu bar on root menu item #2 again: yes, now the submenu items open as a dropdown list as they should.
I assume JF Tamans menu bar was designed as in all other templates, ie. all submenu items automatically drop down as a list whenever you hover over the menu bar. So what am I doing wrong...?
This effect happens in Firefox and IExplorer, most recent versions.

Alright, never mind...
I have figured out the solution to this one myself. Simple, actually: Module settings.
Goto Module Manager, open your menu module for editing, choose the "module" tab and set "Show sub-menu items" to yes. That will always display all submenu items when you hover the mouse cursor above the root menu item.
My menu still does not look nice though, the sub-sub-menu items completely overlap the sub-menu-items, so nothing is legible...
