View Full Version : Gloosy Accordian jump in IE

1) Script Title: Glossy Accordian

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

3) Describe problem:
I have set up the script on one of my webpages to test out live.
The script is great, thanks.
The problem I am having is an IE bug I believe. The script works fine in Firefox and Googles new Chrome. But in IE version 6 and 7, the left navbar column jumps up when toggled open to show a submenu. I added the same menu to my right column on the following page and as you can see it only does this in the left column. I have narrowed it down the cause due to an empty 1px spacer cell in the left column for SEO. Does anyone know of a way to stop the jumping from happening while still using a spacer cell?

here is the link to my page:

Not sure if solves the problem, but try adding a valid doctype to the top of your page, 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">

Thanks for taking a look and your time.

I tried your suggestion but it did not work. You can see on the page that I have placed it in the top of the page, no luck.

Is there an easy way to make this expand over the contents of the page below the navbar? I'm just thinking maybe if it did, it would float over the area below and above without causing the jitter.

Thanks again for taking your time. I am going to remove the script from my page until I find out how to fix the IE bug.
