I have validated the documents and they both receive the thumbs up. I did this before asking you what the problem is. If you would be so kind, would you be able to help me on this last problem relating to this website.
The Menu is not appearing at all in IE7, and the slideshow for some peculiar reason which I am also here to find out starts halfway across the container on the first slide.
Thanks for the reply Ken,
In Quirks mode, the slideshow starts in the correct place and is not misaligned.
The menu still does not work though.
Will have a fiddle.
Does anyone else know what is causing the menu to break down in IE7 and/or how to fix it?
Any help is very much appreciated.
From what I can understand Fleximenu generates the menu using a .js file. It is one of the .js files that the CSS is generated from as well. There is no fallback for stand-alone CSS that is present in your HTML file. This is the .js file that generates CSS at runtime:
The menu itself is not being generated in IE7.
Can you contact ExtendStudio support and report this to them? They may offer you a solution as their website does claim that their menus work on IE7 upwards.
I have sent them a message and am awaiting a response.
Would it help you if I posted the JS file?
It is a small inconvenience that they did not fix this bug in the downloadable product as the website is out for testing now.
However, if there is a fallback that you enable with a boolean to redirect the http request to load a IE7-specific CSS and menu file, that should most certainly bypass the limitation that IE sets and your menu should ideally work.
I already took a look at your .js file and that's when I wrote to you that your menu is being generated at runtime. There is no fallback whatsoever. I know - IE7 can be such a pain in the bottom. But, if you're keen on making it work on IE7, contact them and put your foot down for a fallback to be offered to your code. You've paid for the license from them - and their website claims it works in IE7 - so they better well give you a solution
