Menu not working in IE8
I have a the same problem;
My client can not view the menu at in iIE8 at all.
Finally I read in "designing with web standards"; Jeffrey Zeldman that I must have a DOCTYPE at the top of every page;
<!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD XHTML 1.0 Transitional//EN"
I added it to the template.
now my client can see the top level menu top nav bar (at last)! but no drop downs just top level links work, no links.
I just found this forum and I see I was on the right track to add the DOCTYPE but, your code is a little different, what one should I use?
And should I add it to every page rather tan the template? for some reason it is not on my index page? my index is very close to the inside pages so I can attach the template to that or just add the code to each page.
Also on anther note;
I had to modify the css myself I don't like the menu writer it added another row of navigation every time I edited it in css and did not maintain or (it would over write the css edits) I made if I went back into the wizard.
I think your page will be sorted for IE8 once you have proper a DOCTYPE declaration at the top of your html section of your page.
The DOCTYPE lines should look something like:
<!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD XHTML 1.0 Transitional//EN" "http://www.w3.org/TR/xhtml1/DTD/xhtml1-transitional.dtd">
Do you have the DOCTYPE declaration lines there already? There may be a problem with them (maybe unclosed tags). If in Doubt add new (or replace existing) lines with the above two.
Firefox/mozilla seems to manage without them, but IE needs to know what's expected of it.
