    xml photo gallery with a category drop down menu

    hi guys,
    i need some help with this script, i am building a photo gallery with a drop down menu that reveals many photo libraries and all are xml generated, the idea is to have a gallery where it is updatable without the use of flash knowledge, just xml. so i reached with this script to have a drop down menu that opens and you can choose between the galleries, each gallery reveals thumbnails, the problem is when you choose a photo from the thumbnail, the drop down menu stops working. so i need help where the menu still function after you choose a photo. (when you chose a photo u have the posibility to see the caption of the photo and then go back to thumbnail or continue see the photos by a "next" button) i am attaching the file in zip formate and im attaching the script also. thanx
