How can I delete/turn off those yellow boxes that appear over each nav link?
Thanks!

yellow boxes? Gota screenshot? You sure you haven't turned on a plugin in your browser which does this?

Willr, actually it won't let me take a screenshot of it. But you can view it for yourself at www.ransomedweb.com/mudriver/
Just move your mouse over any of the nav tabs and you'll see the little popup box that says "view more info about ..."
It's actually not a yellow box, I guess. More like an off-white color.

Thanks.

Ooh title boxes. These are created by the browser based on the title tag in the link. I think if you remove the title="View more.." html from the template that will remove those boxes.

Hi James,

That is actually the title attribute in your anchor tag. To "turn it off" as you have requested just go into the template file that is rendering your navigation and remove that attribute and value from your code.

It may look like this:

<a href="$Link" title="View More Info about $Title.XML page" class="$LinkingMode"><span>$MenuTitle.XML</span></a>

Just delete -- title="View More Info about $Title.XML page" -- and you will be all set.
