Problem Displaying in IE

Problem Displaying in IE

I've built a horizontal menu with several drop down items and it displays perfectly in all browsers with the exception of IE. I am testing it in the current versions of Firefox, Safari, Chrome and IE 8. In IE 8 all I am getting is basic default text links of the main menu items only. I am simply following the instructions - am I missing a step? Do I need to do anything with the items in the header? Or with the files in the cssmw folder? Thanks.

I've not installed IE8 yet, so no idea what issues you might run into with the Menu Writer menus. However, if you were to post a link to a page that is having this issue, someone would be able to take a look at the page to see what issues their might be with the menu.

If everything is working in the other browsers and not in IE8 then generally speaking all of the files are in place, so it may be an IE8 issue or potentially some scripting issue.

problem with ie8 and css menu

hello,

I just bought your css menu assist and i am having the same issue with it not working properly. The client only uses ie8 and all the employees as well so this is a big problem. How to fix?

IE8 is still in BETA, so we don't officially support it yet. If you have a url that experiences the problem I will make sure we do some testing against it for when IE8 support is added.

Display problems in IE 6

Mine display correctly in IE 7 but customers using IE 6 have problems.

Please post the url and browser you have issues with and we can look into it further.

Sometimes if ie6 has issues, the problem is that the path to the ie6 conditional css is not correct on the page and you just have to update the path.

<!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">

Thanks for the assistance. I have just put the site (a mess at the moment) up on another server for you to view. It can be viewed at: index.php

Works great in everything but IE... Thanks again for your help.

Thanks for the tip - I did try it with the different doctype and it works, however, I was using: <!doctype html public "-//w3c//dtd html 4.0 transitional//en">

I was hoping to be able to resolve the problem without switching doctypes... Thanks.
