ie7 issues

Hi,
I am having a ie7 issue with 2nd level menu dissapearing before it can be clicked on.
I understand it could be a quirks mode issue.
The site is www.noosasurfclub.com.au/
I have added a class to act as the heading in some menus but other than that I'm sure the code is straight out of menu writer.
Thanks
Craig
PS I'm a mac user and if I test at browserlab I can't see drop down so I am flying blind. It is just feedback from the client..

When I test on IE7 and IE8, I am able to navigate to the menus without any issue. Can you get a little more information on your customer's setup so we can do some more testing on it?

Hi Jimmy,
Firstly thanks for the great support you guys offer.
The client is using windows XP and IE 7.0.5730.13
The issue is the dissapearing menu.
eg. corporate education >> Surf Programs >> CPR (this level is dissapearing when hovered over and is unnavigatable <-- if that is such a word)
Thanks again
Craig Jones

Hi Jimmy and Surfbouy,

Hi

The way the page is at the moment, IE7 is subject to the conditional statement stylesheet 'menu_ie8.css' in which the level-2 menu has a width of auto, which is good for IE8 - but no good for IE7 which requires a declared width (in px or em):

<!--[if IE ]>
<style type="text/css" media="all">
@import url("http://www.noosasurfclub.com.au/CSSMenuWriter/cssmw/menu_ie8.css");
</style>
<![endif]-->



So you could either:

Adjust the menu_ie8.css to account for IE7's shortcomings and change the rule at or near line 135 for ul#cssmw ul.level-2 > li > a { by changing the width from 'auto' to 200px (to take into account the longest menu item - 'Advanced Resuscitation Techniques) - but this widens all level-2 menus in IE8 as well as IE7,

or:

You make use of the menu_ie.css by changing the <!--[if lte IE 6]> conditional statement to include IE7, - <!--[if lte IE 7]> between the head tags on each of your pages (can be done by adding it to your template, and updating pages based on that template). Then change the ul#cssmw ul.level-2 > li > a { on the menu_ie.css to a width 200px, instead of auto.

You might also have to correct the path for the menu_ie.css in the the <!--[if lte IE 7]>.
