No menu displaying in IE6

Hi

My menu will not display in IE6, you just get the text links and nothing else.
I have read through all the threads and tried all the suggestions but nothing seems to resolve it, could you help?

The link is navbar.php

Many thanks

Paul

It looks as though the path to your menu_ie.css file is wrong.

change:

@import url("../.../CSSMenuWriter/cssmw/menu_ie.css");

to:

@import url("CSSMenuWriter/cssmw/menu_ie.css");

You also seem to be missing the IE style condition

<!--[if IE ]>
etc


from your pages which would check your browser and then refer IE to your ie.css and thereon to the iepngfix.htc

Still no menu

Thanks for your suggestions.

I had already tried different paths but have done as you suggested but still no menus?

WA Help needed here!

Hiya pework,

Am at a loss to know what to suggest. One of the pros needs to take a look when they return from the holiday weekend.

One question though, - does the error duplicate when you try a new menu - just a basic test menu with a couple of headings would do, using just the default settings of the menu builder? - are the results the same?

Pework,

A couple of things... I noticed the page you provide is just the menu. So, are you including that page on another page?

If not, I know that IE (especially IE6) will have some real problems displaying anything correctly without page declarations such as

html:
<!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD XHTML 1.0 Transitional//EN" "http://www.w3.org/TR/xhtml1/DTD/xhtml1-transitional.dtd">
<html xmlns="http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml">



If you don't make a doctype declaration and define the flavor of html, you will probably have some real issues with IE6.

Best regards,

Brian

IE6 Issues

Thanks for your ideas guy's.

Yes Brian I am using the 'include' command to pull the menu bar into other pages.

The doctype declaration was a good suggestion but doesn't seem to make any difference.

I'll play around a bit with the css code when I get time and see if I can solve it.

Do you have a url with the menu on a page with the doctype? I'd like to take a look at it in context to see if I can spot the problem.

Hi Ray, my home page is www.smeoutsourcing.co.uk this page includes the menu bar.

Add a:

<head>
</head>

tag to the top of your page and add all of the <script> <title> <link>, and <meta> tags to it.

Then put the rest of the content in a <body> tag and add your </html> tag.

that may fix your problem. If not, send a link to the updated page and I'll take another look at what else might be wrong.
