Problem in IE and OPERA with drop down dynamic menu

Problem in IE and OPERA with drop down dynamic menu

Hi there,

I wonder if someone can tell me what the problem is.

I have built a dynamic menu but the second drop down shows huge gaps between the menu items in the drop down itself. I tried deleting the menu item but the second menu item exhibits the same problem. The funny thing is that it works perfectly in Firefox but is not working correctly in IE or Opera

The two examples can be viewed at:

index.php
and
index1.php

Any assistance to fix this problem would be greatly appreciated

Hi
just to add to your problem :) it works perfectly in IE9 beta

I am guessing there is something set in the 2nd dropdown slightly different? is it a repeat image setting? Try setting it not to repeat.

Check the code on your menu.php file. It looks (from the source code) that you may have some extraneous 'mysql free result' lines at the bottom of your page:

Your source code shows repeatedly:

Try removing the duplicated 'mysql_free_result()' chunks of code and see if that solves the problem.

There is no repeats of the mysql_free_result() that I can see.

This is what is on page:

<?php
mysql_free_result($rsProdCat);

mysql_free_result($rsProd);

mysql_free_result($rsSupportcat);

mysql_free_result($rsSupportprod);

mysql_free_result($rsNewscat);

mysql_free_result($rsNewsprod);

mysql_free_result($rsLinkscat);

mysql_free_result($rsLinksprod);

mysql_free_result($rsContactcat);

mysql_free_result($rsContactprod);

?>

The menu without the products just omits the top two above

Both menus were made independently. The image is a background on the top level only with no repeat.
The second level drop down is set exactly the same for every dropdown

Strange indeed but thanks for the input Mike. I don't have IE9 Beta yet

can you send a copy of your page and the CSSMenuWriter/cssmw/menu.php file in a zip archive so we can examine the code.


neilo is on the right track, it is being caused by MySQL Link resource errors, but we will need to see the code to track down the source of them.

delete the code from line 104- 120:

php:
<?php

mysql_free_result
($menuwriter_newscat);
?>
        <?php
mysql_free_result
($menuwriter_newsprod);
?>
        <?php
mysql_free_result
($menuwriter_linkscat);
?>
        <?php
mysql_free_result
($menuwriter_linksprod);

        <?php
mysql_free_result

Neilo was on the right track. I deleted all the free mysqls and the menu seems to be working just fine. MANY Thanks for your help! I have no idea how they got there in the first place but at least it is now working.
