Drop down? or do you mean flyout from the menu items?
And by Vista, do you mean Internet Explorer? and if so, which version are you using?
Yes, I guess you call them flyouts...and I believe they are using Vista 7
Vista is probably the operating system... so do you mean Internet Explorer browser?
From the browser main menu, click "Help" and then "About" to find the version of Internet Explorer.
Sorry, yes Internet explorer-used by a community oon differerent versions I woud think.
I know it is at least version 6 up
Well it works fine in IE8... so we need to narrow this down a little.
First, validate your page code here:
There are 2 major error related to the menu.
Fix those and then test in Adobe Browser Lab to zero in on the exact version of IE that is the problem.
Best of luck!
Thanks...doing it now.
The Adobe browserlab only shows a screenshot of the page...not the active fly outs.
Well the flyouts look fine in IE8 and 9.... so that leaves possible issues with much older version...6 and/or 7. Their market share is pretty small now a days...
I don't have either of those old browsers so I really can't test... sorry..
That menu looks like it was build around a rather old, convoluted method... may be rather hard to fix. If you really want to target those old IE browsers, then you might want to just redo the menu with straight css.
Tons of free examples on the internet:
Best of luck!
Well, there a couple of things wrong.
Problem #1: Missing document type. Without a valid doc type, the page runs in Quirks Mode which confuses many browsers - especially IE.
- Go to Modify > Page properties > Title/Encoding > Doc Type >
- Select a doc type that matches your code: (XHTML 1.0 Transitional).
- Hit Apply, OK. Save.
- Repeat with other site pages.
Problem #2: MM Rollover Menus. Possibly the worst menu system ever created, it's not too surprising that they don't work well in all browsers. You can read the sordid story about them below:
Get rid of the awful MM Rollovers and replace them with a CSS menu system.
- Pop-Menu Magic2 by PVII (commercial DW extension)
- Spry Menu 2.0 from the Adobe Widget Exchange
When you say this -
That menu looks like it was build around a rather old, convoluted method
You are being too kind. That menu approach (legacy code from Macromedia days) has been thoroughly debunked even by the author of the code (read this to see - http://losingfight.com/blog/2006/08/page/3/).
And when you say -
may be rather hard to fix.
You have understated the case! Get rid of those nasty menus! They have NO redeeming value - really....
Thanks for the comments Murray! LOL!!
@Nancy - I had to look around on Andy's blog to find the right link. It has changed to the one I just posted.
Thanks everyone for the responses..this has been a nightmare project from day one..I will most definitely look into Menu Magic...Nothing like inheriting someone elses old files and having to make them work. You all have at least made me realizewhat I have to do.
I appreciate the feedback...took me hours to get to this information. There is not much about it anywhere.
