Hey Dom I've been looking at adding the states as a sub menu under my home inspector website link.  I've done it the way you say to do it, but the sub menu shows up on the main page (as a sub menu) but I don't want people to see the list of states until they enter the 'home inspector website' menu.  How can I get it to do that?

I'll have to add in an option to show it on the home page or not. I have a few other options I need to finish up first and then I'll come back to this. Go ahead and create your states for now and once the option is up it'll move them (you won't have to redo).
