My spry horizontal menu bar is now displaying vertical. How do I fix it?

Jul 4, 2012 1:51 PM

My horizontal spry menu bar displays correctly at http://www.matthewvandyke.com/ar/photos/ but displays vertical at http://www.matthewvandyke.com/ar/about.html.  It started doing this a few days ago and I am not sure why.

 

Can anyone take a look at this code and tell me why this would be happening?

 

Here is the code:

SpryMenuBar.js
This file handles the JavaScript for Spry Menu Bar.  You should have no need
to edit this file.  Some highlights of the MenuBar object is that timers are
used to keep submenus from showing up until the user has hovered over the parent
menu item for some time, as well as a timer for when they leave a submenu to keep
showing that submenu until the timer fires.

    Dear, dear, dear me.

     

    Thanks for the code, but you must not give us code this way, it is like giving us a fish dinner and asking us how the fish swims...

     

    I see that you have given us links.

     

    Okay, the page looks fine to me...did you fix it? (I stand by my comment about not giving us code this way.) Best of luck...

     

    B

    I am using primarily Chrome. I will check in other browsers and spend more time on the code. Thanks for your reply.

    I have not seen your error in either my IE or my chrome. I do note that you are using a "strict" Document Type Declaration.

     

    You might try a transitional DTD, which should be more forgiving than the strict:

     

    <!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD XHTML 1.0 Transitional//EN" "http://www.w3.org/TR/xhtml1/DTD/xhtml1-transitional.dtd">

    <html xmlns="http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml">

     

    Other than that, I don't see anything particular (because I don't see the error, either) that would cause the menu to drop vertically instead of horizontally.

    Just to add strength to Zabeth69's comment, I have had a look at the page in IE6+ and event IE in quirks mode and cannot replicate the problem.

     

    Also glanced over the CSS and cannot find anything that could cause the menu bar to misbehave.

     

    The DOCTYPE declaration is a mismatch, but that should not influence the menu bar.

     

    @Zabeth69:

    Great to see that you are back!

    Good work. You can see that sometimes it takes many eyes and unexpected solutions, no matter how basic they end up being.

     

    @Gramps: thanks! It's good to be back!
