popup menu link code syntax

I created a popup menu, but the links don't work.  What is the proper syntax for:


mm_menu_0908124917_1.addMenuItem("WI Aging","window.open('www.gwaar.org', '_top');");

I want the user to click on a child menu link - WI Aging -and have the browser open a new window to navigate to a new site - www.gwaar.org.  Right now it looks for a link in my site that doesn't exist.

Thank you.

RE: popup menu link code syntax

you need make the links full urls, that meas include the http:// part in your links.  http://www.gwaar.com

Otherwsie, it will attempt to look for a file called www.gwaar.com in your site.

Go ahead try it out create a simple text file and name it www.gwaar.com  .com is going to be the extension. Try your link it will open up that file.

RE: popup menu link code syntax

Prior to posting the question I tried that and it just didn't do anything.  Now it works... maybe I typoed.

Thanks for your prompt answer!
