Could you add a 'cancel' button to the Freelancers submenus of the Directory? (Imagine you are looking for a freelancer under the 'Directory' option. You click on 'Freelancers'. Then you realise that you know the person's name, but you are stuck in a menu that you cannot get out of, and the 'search by name' option is obscured by the window you have just opened up. It has happened to me a few times. Or could you add a 'search by name' option under 'Directory, Freelancers' ? Thanks.

Hi Anne Jul 26, 2003

I'm not sure I understood your problem, but you can use the "search" box, on the left side of any page, to search by name. It should work for your needs.

It also happens in other windows Jul 26, 2003

The menu on the upper side of the page remains in the background if there are combo boxes on the page you're looking at. I've noticed that several times, just didn't have time to write about it.
It appears that combo boxes remain on the front layer and menu entries remain in the background.

I noticed it too, with the menu on the right side, above. The menu drops are hidden behind the layer of the box.
