not all pages showing in the admin area

Hi I have a problem with the IE8 and admin section page menu.
When on the Home page of the admin section the links to available site pages stops after 15 items and doesn't display the remaining pages. Thus making it very difficult for my client to get to navigate to those pages for editing.
At first I thought they may have some strange browser settings but I can't see anything wrong with the settings and on my own test machine running IE8 and Vista Business it does the same thing.

Can anyone tell me what is going on here? Is there a bug I don't know about... and probably more importantly how can we fix it.
It's not really good enough to say to a client "use another browser" as most of them use IE even though we all know it is rubbish :)
All help most appreciate!

I should add this is PowerCMS v 1.0.1 with the patch

This is not a problem that I'm having when I view my CMS admin pages. Do you have a screen shot so that we can see the same thing as you. This should give us a better idea of what you are seeing and allow us to try to reproduce the issue the same as you.

I have seen before where having certain content on pages can cause problems with the other pages displaying. When you have tested this out on other machines was it the same CMS setup you were looking at?

screen shot of the issue

See the two screen shots attache one from IE8 on a PC the other from Safari on a mac but basically it appears to work on everything I have tested except IE8.
Notice how on the IE screen shot it stops at "news and local events".... and there is no scroll bar on the page. Compare this to the Safari screen shot and you will see there are a lot more pages in the list and the scroll bar indicating that there is even more content that currently showing.
I have zoomed out on both of these so you could see what I ment.

Yes it was exactly the same CMS - same site in fact, does this help. o

Based on your screen shots it seems to me that their might be a problem with the content on one of these pages that you see in the list that is preventing the others from showing. A good test of this would be to setup a new testing PowerCMS that has only simple text for the content of the various pages. You should add in as many pages as you have in the non working one then test it in IE8. Please post back with the results that you get when you try it like this. If the problem is with some of the content on one of the pages the page will need to be identified and the content updated to account for this.

flash object caused the pages not to display

Well thanks very much you were on the money there were several flash objects on the last page in the menu that was showing... I put the code in directly for these and obviously it didn't agree with the way I have embeded them ...so I removed them and put them back in using the tools in the FCK editor instead... and all is now well the remaining pages now show up in the list.
I though I was using the same method as the editor but I must have had something slightly out in the code.

Thanks heaps for you assistance.

If you are curious about the difference in the way the flash object was embedded you can view the source on one of the pages that you added it to and compare that with the source that FCK produces when using the built in controls.

I'm glad to hear that it is now working out correctly for you.
