Background Image FF vs IE...

Post by jswidorski » Mon Aug 18, 2008 5:21 pm

I have a menu @ http://cds-shelby.johnswidorski.com and It just does NOT work in IE... I don't know if it menu related or not.

Anybody have any thoughts?

Code: Select all

<table width="800" cellpadding="0" cellspacing="0" border="0">
	<tr valign="bottom">
		<td width="150"><a href="default.asp" ><img src="images/logo_top.png" border="0"></a></td>
		<td width="650" align="right">
			<table width="300" cellpadding="0" cellspacing="0" border="0">
				<tr align="right"><td class="header_small"><a href="storelocator.asp">Store Locator</a></td><td class="header_small"><a href="contact.asp">Computer Configurator</a></td></tr>
				<tr><td><br style="line-height: 5px;" /></td></tr>
				<tr align="right"><td class="header_small"><a href="configurator.asp">Computer Configurator</a></td><td class="header_small"><a href="application.asp">Employment</a></td></tr>
				<tr><td><br style="line-height: 5px;" /></td></tr>
				<tr align="right"><td align="right"><img src="images/tools.gif" border="0" /></td><td bgcolor="#e3e3e3" >&nbsp;</td></tr>
			</table>
		</td>
	</tr>
	<tr height="40">
		<td width="150"><img src="images/logo_bottom.png" border="0"></a></td>
		<td width="650" align="left" height="40">
			<script type="text/javascript">
				with(milonic=new menuname("Main Menu"))
				{
					alwaysvisible=1;
					orientation="horizontal";
					style=menuStyle;
					position="relative";
					aI("text=Home;url=default.asp");
					aI("showmenu=InStoreServices;text=In-Store Services;url=services_instore.asp;");
					aI("showmenu=OnSiteServices;text=On-Site Services;url=services_onsite.asp");
					aI("text=Product Listing;url=/shop;");
					aI("text=Web Design;url=webdesign.asp;");
					aI("text=Classes;url=classes.asp;");
					aI("text=Site Map;url=sitemap.asp;");
				}

				drawMenus();
			</script>
			</td>
		</tr>
	</table>

Code: Select all

fixMozillaZIndex=true; //Fixes Z-Index problem  with Mozilla browsers but causes odd scrolling problem, toggle to see if it helps
_menuCloseDelay=500;
_menuOpenDelay=150;
_subOffsetTop=2;

aI("text=Networking;url=onsite_networking.asp;");
aI("text=Server Maintenance;url=onsite_servermaintenance.asp;");
aI("text=Hardware;url=onsite_hardware.asp;");
}

On a side note, the drop down does not appear to be working. I must be doing something stupid.

Thanks, John

First you need to update your menu code. You're running v5.792, current (required for help here in the forum) is v5.800.

Let us know how that goes.

Alright, I updated the code.

The image problem had to with the doc type, but the drop down is still now working.

Thanks in Advance, John

Hi,

There is an error in your menu_data file.

In the menuStyle it says

Code: Select all

with(menuStyle=new mm_style()){
but in the subMenuStyle it doesn't have =new mm_style, it says

Code: Select all

with(submenuStyle=new menuStyle()){
Correct that new menuStyle to new mm_style and everything works fine :)

Thanks for stepping in, Ruth. Sometimes the J.O.B. gets in the way of the forum... :roll:

Suggestion, js. Given today's modern browsers, you really need to apply a doctype to your pages. Based on how you're coding, I would suggest...

Code: Select all

<!DOCTYPE HTML PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD HTML 4.01 Transitional//EN" "http://www.w3.org/TR/html4/loose.dtd">
