    Problems with Vertical Spry menu bar in Internet Explora


      Hi I'm new to Dreamweaver,


      I having trouble with a new site I'm making in CS4. A problem with a vertical menu bar, in IE. Can anyone help?


      1. The text is left aligned and should be centered.

      2. The menu bar has moved left

      3. My paragraph text has moved up the page and aligned itself to the to the menu bar.

      I'm finding dreamweaver a bit clunky, reading the 'Missing Manual' but still very frustrating. Any one have any idea's/

          To be honest I'm not sure why you are using a spry menu? You don't have any drop down sub-menus going on, not that I can see anyway. Maybe it was just there and you inserted it for convienience.


          Anyway it looks like your js file is somehow corrupt (IE doesnt like it anyway). Switch to code view and scroll down until you find the line of code below:


          <script src="../SpryAssets/SpryMenuBar.js" type="text/javascript"></script>


          Replace it with the following:


          <!-- <script src="../SpryAssets/SpryMenuBar.js" type="text/javascript"></script> -->


          As you don't have any movement in your spry menu bar you can comment it out which is what the <!--   --> does so the browser does not read it or you can delete the line of code completely.


          See what happens when you comment it out first.

            Sorry, but your CSS is has been mangled beyound recognition.


            The solution is to start with an untouched style sheet. Then add or modify the CSS testing in your browsers as you make the changes.


            Have a look at the following where I have positioned the menu. All that is now required is the styling for font and the hover event.


            <!doctype html>
            <meta charset="utf-8">
            <title>Untitled Document</title>
            <link href="SpryAssets/SpryMenuBarVertical.css" rel="stylesheet">
            body {width: 960px;    margin: auto;}
            .article {clear: both; margin: 20px;}
            /* SPRY MENUBAR */
            ul.MenuBarVertical {width: 29em; margin: auto; border: none;}
            ul.MenuBarVertical li {width: 29em; text-align: center;}
            ul.MenuBarVertical a {background-color: transparent;}

              That sorted it out.


              As I said I am new to dreamweaver, and I don't understand it all yet.


              Will keep on going ...
