    I am developing a Thematic child theme and have set my site to have a static homepage using a custom page template, and now the dropdown menus are working on all pages except the home page. The menus on that page DO work just fine when I reset the blog index to just be the default setting, displaying recent posts (ie, when the customized page is not set as the home page, the menus on it work fine).

    This suggests to me that the custom page template is set up OK, and there's something about it being set as the home page which is messing things up.

    Any ideas about how to fix this?

    Here is the custom page template code:

    Template Name: Splash (home page)

    <?php get_header(); ?>

    <?php thematic_abovecontainer(); ?>

    <div id="container">

    <?php thematic_abovecontent(); ?>

    <div id="content">


    // create the navigation above the content

    // calling the widget area 'index-top'

    // action hook for placing content above the index loop

    // action hook creating the index loop

    // action hook for placing content below the index loop

    // calling the widget area 'index-bottom'

    // create the navigation below the content


    <div id="fadeshow1"></div>

    <div id="bottom">
    <div id="left"><p>Text goes here</p></div>

    <div id="right">
    <image src="pics/callout-sample1.jpg" />

    <!--closing bottom div-->
    <!--closing content-->

    <?php thematic_belowcontent(); ?>

    <!--closing container-->

    <?php // get_sidebar(); ?>


    // action hook for placing content below #container

    // calling the standard sidebar

    // calling footer.php


    Thanks so much!

    Solved! The fadeshow div (a slideshow) was simply covering up the (working) menu. Ha!
    I assigned it a z-index of 0 and now it's all set.
