View Full Version : Omni Slide Menu IE 7 Problem

05-05-2007, 08:13 PM
1) Script Title: Omni Slide Menu

2) Script URL (on DD): http://www.dynamicdrive.com/dynamicindex1/omnislide/index.htm

3) Describe problem: The version that shows the slide menu at the top works fine with every browser (IE up to 6 Service Pack 2, Maxthon, Netscape, etc) EXCEPT for IE 7. With IE 7 instead of beint centerred at the top of the page, it appears at the left and even at that, only the right most half of the menu can be read.

For reference, go to www.healey6.com using IE7.

Is there a fix for this???

Use a DOCTYPE for your page (index_m.htm):

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


<!DOCTYPE HTML PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD HTML 4.01 Transitional//EN" "http://www.w3.org/TR/1999/REC-html401-19991224/loose.dtd">

Using a more proper header and style actually selected for your menu would be a good idea as well, ex:

<!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD HTML 4.01//EN" "http://www.w3.org/TR/html4/strict.dtd">
<META HTTP-EQUIV="Content-Type" CONTENT="text/html; charset=iso-8859-1">
<META name="description" content="Home">
<META http-equiv="GENERATOR" CONTENT="Created with CuteSITE Builder, HTML Exporter 5.0.150">
<style type="text/css">

#menu2 a:link {color:black;text-decoration:none;}
#menu2 a:hover {color:black;text-decoration:none;}
#menu2 a:active {color:black;text-decoration:none;}
#menu2 a:visited {color:black;text-decoration:none;}


<script src="mmenu.js" type="text/javascript"></script>
<script src="menuItems.js" type="text/javascript">

This still isn't exactly to standards, but much better than the way you had it.

This did not fix the problem. I have worked through with a dozen or so regular viewers of this particular site and have discovered two things:

1. Some IE7 users with a IE7 XP combination have a problem with the menu appearing cut off on the side (my second computer does this with that ombination. Some do not.

2. So far ALL using Vista have the problem regardless of the IE version.

I am stumped.
