function initMenu(){
  var menus, menu, text, a, i, CurrentID;
  menus = getChildrenByElement(document.getElementById("menu"));
  CurrentID = document.getElementById("auto");
  for(i = 0; i < menus.length; i++){
    menu = menus[i];
    text = getFirstChildByText(menu);
    a = document.createElement("a");
    menu.replaceChild(a, text);
    a.href = "#";
    a.onclick = showMenu;
    a.onfocus = function(){this.blur()};

  //CurrentID.showMenu; thought this would work but it doesn.t
I am modifying a website for a company I am interning at. I have no javascript experience and was just thrown in. I need the menu to open when page is clicked so that it looks like the menu stayed open when you made a selection and the new page loads. I have a id in the html of the pages called "auto" to designate the menu item in the page to be opened. If anyone could help I would be very grateful. I will be keeping a lookout for posts
