Drop Down Menu / Posts /

Selected option for one of the ddmenus so that it is already open upon page load?

Is there a quick change that I can make to the script that would enable the first menu to be open when the page first loads and then operate normally thereafter?

Good question. 
Yes it is possible with the following code added to your page (either in the head section of at the end of your page):
<script type="text/javascript"> function eventFire(el, etype) { if (el.fireEvent) { (el.fireEvent('on' + etype)); } else { var evObj = document.createEvent('Events'); evObj.initEvent(etype, true, false); el.dispatchEvent(evObj); } } function openTheFirstMenuItem() { var item1 = document.getElementById("ddmenu"); if (item1 && ddmenu) { item1 = item1.getElementsByTagName("li")[0]; eventFire(item1, "mouseover"); } else setTimeout(arguments.callee, 50); } openTheFirstMenuItem(); </script>

Just in case it depends upon the template that I'm using,  it was #3 of the drop down menus.  I would like for the first sub menu to be open upon page load but operate normally thereafter.
