View Full Version : Resolved Accordion menu flicker in IE

06-26-2008, 05:52 PM
1) Script Title: Bullet List Accordion Menu

2) Script URL (on DD): http://www.dynamicdrive.com/dynamicindex17/ddaccordionmenu-bullet.htm

3) Describe problem: When using IE, clicking on the main headers to close a category causes a flicker. Annoying! Please help?

ps.....I am not remotely JavaScript savvy, by any stretch of the imagination. Please feel free to talk to me like I'm an idiot.

In IE, this can occur if your page doesn't contain a valid doctype at the very top, such as:

<!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD XHTML 1.0 Transitional//EN"
<html xmlns="http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml" lang="en" xml:lang="en">

That did the trick.

I hope this thread is not too old, but I tried the advice above to use a valid XHTML Doctype.

Result: The Menu dosen`t flicker any longer in IE. But after changin the DOCTYPE the whole page looks horrible to me. I see lots of useless scrollbar all over the page.
Since I am not able to code I would like to ask you if there is a way to fix this problem with keeping my DOCTYPE? Sorry for this stupid Question...

I am using <!DOCTYPE HTML PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD HTML 4.01 Transitional//EN">

Script: Urban Gray Accordion Menu (Link: http://www.dynamicdrive.com/dynamicindex17/ddaccordionmenu-urban.htm)

Hope someone can help on this matter.

Thank you

My link to the site is http://www.stemtechbiz.com/

I also experience a small jump when we close the header in only IE. I am using EXIGO CMS so it doesnt have the 3 lines which is mentioned. Can i still insert these lines to solve the problem or there is something else that needs to change.
