Spry Menu bar and rollovers not showing in IE.

Tags: #cs5.5 #dreamweaver #javascript #menu

I updated my DW CS5.5 couple days ago. Since then - all my rollovers and spry menus (which is my main menu) stopped working in IE. My version now (after update) is Version 11.5 Build 5366. Can you help me to get to previous version? Everything there worked fine.

 

I tried the same site on DW CS4 and works well in it too. Which makes me think it is update version issue.

 

I am very new to DW and need really detailed instructions ;-).

 

Thanks ahead fot your input

    I assure you if your menus stopped working in IE it's not because your software was updated.  It's because your code is messed up.

    Start by validating your HTML code and fix reported errors.  Invalid code causes 98% of browser rendering problems.

    If that doesn't fix the problem, upload your page & dependant files to your remote server.  Post the URL here so we can take a look at it.

    To diagnose problems we need to see the whole enchilada on a web server.

     

    If you don't have permanent hosting yet (and you should), then get a temporary web space somewhere to use for testing & debugging purposes.

    Many ISPs offer free web hosting as part of their package.

     

    This one is free:

    Sounds like a problem with your Site Definition. 

         Go to Sites > Manage Sites > Edit...   Are your local site definition settings intact?

    Where are your Spry assets being saved?

    Forum members are not accustomed to downloading files from Dropbox (or elsewhere) to study your code.

     

    It's much quicker and easier for everyone if you upload your files to a live website and post a link so we can view it in our browsers.

     

    We can then use browser based tools such as Firebug to quickly diagnose issues.

     

    By making it a simple convenient mouseclick away for everyone, your issue gets maximum exposure and usually gets more responses from other people.

    I looked at your index page and the SpryHorizontal menu across the top works fine for me in Firefox12, IE8 and IE9.
