CSS Vertical Menu not pop out in IE, Chrome and Firefox

CSS Vertical Menu not pop out in IE, Chrome and Firefox

Hi all,

We've got the lastest version of CCS menu writer and have created a vertical menu. Originally the menu was fine in older versions of IE, firefox etc.

Now with IE 8 (8.0.6001.18783), Google Chrome (2.0.172.33) and Firefox (3.0.11) the menu does not pop out. The menu also displays all parent and sub categories when the sub categories are meant to show/hide during hover/pop-out.

IE 8 has a meta tag to specifically allow the IE7 engine to run, the code is below -

<meta http-equiv="X-UA-Compatible" content="IE=7" />

We've successfully added this meta tag and the menu is back to working with IE 8 in IE 7 mode though.

As for Chrome & Firefox no fix has been succssful as yet.

An example of this in action is www.willisjococoffee.com.au on the left hand side.

Any help much appreciated as we have a number of sites with this issue.

Please export the menu in the layout manager so that we can reproduce the problem. This will allow us to debug the issue properly. I am not sure what would cause this.

Export of CSS Menu

Hi Ray,

The only option for export I saw in the GUI was to save a preset, which once saved I cannot located in the CSS Menu Writer folder/sub-folders.

Anyhow I have attached a ZIP file of the live menu and images folders so you may view any of the files.

As I mentioned in my original post we have a number of sites using this and all display the same issue with Firefox & Chrome.

Go to the webassist layout manager. It will allow you to import and export presets.

Ok, I will try to reproduce the problem with these files. Does this happen when placing the menu on a new blank page, or do I need to place it somewhere else specifically to experience the issue?
