    Object expected error in IE

    romeo_the_3rd
      Hi
      2 issues:

      First is:
      Line 80
      Object expected error in IE

      URL: www.5minuteretreats.com

      I don't know if its the MMpreload images or the PLHFO menu it is referring to.

      Second is:
      Also getting "line 271 column 16: end tag for element "A" which is not open."
      p="</a>";
      I am unsure of the <a> tag. It appears to be part of the Random Image script (kaosweaver - DW extension). Not sure what would happen if I delete it.
      Any assitance would be great.

          The error is referring to line 505. You have hacked the HALO menu system
          incompletely and left some js at the bottom of the page that is causing the
          errors to appear.

          Read this - it will describe the menu's workings enough so that you can
          figure out what needs to be done....

          > I am unsure of the <a> tag

          Change this -

          p="</a>";

          to this -

          p="</" + "a>";

          Paul Davis should know better! 8)

            This onmousemove on the <body> tag is causing the error:

            onmousemove="closesubnav(event);"

              That too. There is detritus all over the page that should be removed.

                    Thanks for the replies. I appreciate it.

                    'This onmousemove on the <body> tag is causing the error:

                    onmousemove="closesubnav(event);"'

                    How do I rectify this?

                    As for detritus (I would have used 'dross'), I know that the template must be full of it.
                    Do you have any suggestions as a starting point that could help a novice IT hack clean up the mess?

                      It doesn't seem to do anything so I would just remove that from the <body> tag.

                        It does do something - fires an error every time the mouse moves, because
                        only half of the HALO menu has been removed.

                        The steps would be -

                        1. Remove the onmousemove event/call from the body tag.
                        2. Remove the (now) extraneous js from the bottom of the page, defining the
                        defunct menu.

                        The link I posted will guide you.
