  • Issues with DWCS3 Spry menu in IE6/7

    Hi there, I hope someone can help me.. I'm a little lost...

    I'm building a new website for my work... I used the DWCS3 Spry menu and what I've built works fine in FFx3 and Safari 4 on the Mac and FFx3 on XP but while structurally sound in IE6 and 7 the states are all garbled and don't view anything like they should on the other browsers... here's the link

    How do I do the IE code only?

    Many thanks.

    Regards

    :/ for one, code by hand instead of relying on what DW spits...that is your first mistake - which will lead to code that doesn't work in every browser. Often with IE you need to either find a way to make it work in your main css file because it treats divs differently than every other browser basically. Another solution is to create a separate css file for IE fixes (the quick and dirty way). But you need to understand how each browser deals with measurements.

      Use this, it's easier:
      http://htmldog.com/articles/suckerfish/dropdowns/

      All the javascript really does is add a class to the link that's hovered over, because IE6 will only use the :hover function on an <a> element.

      The rest is pretty simple: normally the <ul> that's a child of an <li> will be positioned off the screen (left: -999em). When a link is hovered over, that ul shows up where it normall does (left: auto)

      edit: scratch all that. set a width on navbar and shove a clearing div in there
      also try setting float: none on ul li li

        While I personally prefer Suckerfish because of its simplicity, there are very good reasons to use a Javascript menu system instead. And if you're going to do that, you're going to be much better off using a well-supported framework like Spry than re-inventing the wheel.

        I don't have IE to try it on at the moment, but looking at the code, you're using an old, pre-release version of Spry. In fact, it's so old, it was released before Internet Explorer 7 was. I don't know for sure if that's the problem, but it seems a likely culprit (there are IE6 hacks in the code that won't work with IE7).

        So I'd recommend going to the Adobe website and getting the latest version of Spry, and see if that fixes it.

          hello Troep, do you search it in google font? If you are not searched search still now, then do it. I don't tell you that you find that font but I hope you should find a similar one.

          I've always had a side business doing work for various clients, but I've never bitten the bullet and taken the chance of doing it full-time. Honestly, I'm a little envious of you. Good luck!
