View Full Version : Dynamic Drive Drop Down Menu

01-08-2007, 11:53 AM
Hi There,

I've recently designed a website with one of your scripts. Its a simple java
script drop down menu. The website can be viewed at

The trouble I'm having is that when you use the back button on Internet
Explorer 6 to go back on a page within the site the left menu jumps right
across the screen. I have tried lots of things to fix it but nothing has worked.

This activity only happens after you have gone into a few pages and used the back button a few times. Its makes the webpage look completely jumbled up and out of line when the left bit comes out.

What do you make of this. Can anyone help? Also the DD script in question is here at http://www.dynamicdrive.com/dynamicindex1/dropmenuindex.htm

Kind Regards

Ok, after a few tries, I finally got to see the problem for myself in IE6. Are you sure it's related to the menu though? It looks like one of those layout problems with IE6 when it doesn't like something in the HTML. Try something like this. Locate the <table> tag for the left column:

<table border="0" width="125" id="table3" background="images/left.gif" cellpadding="0" height="367">

and change that to:

<table border="0" width="125px" style="width: 125px" id="table3" background="images/left.gif" cellpadding="0" height="367">

The parts in red are new.

Dear DD Admin,

Thanks for getting back to me. I tried using the code you mentioned in your above post and uploaded the index page again but the problem still happened after switching from index page hiting the back button on explorer.

Is there anything you can suggest to sovle this problem? We are very eager to launch the new website but can't until this annoying bug is fixed.

I look forward to hearing from you soon. DD Script in question is http://www.dynamicdrive.com/dynamicindex1/dropmenuindex.htm
