View Full Version : Problem with menu on IE7

02-06-2010, 08:44 PM
1) Script Title: Smooth Navigational Menu (v 1.4)

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

3) Describe problem:

I'd like to you it on my website. The problem only appears when using IE7. Basically whenever I try to open a submenu it hides behind the page content and every time I try to move my mouse over any position of the submenu it disappears.

Is the page content a Flash or Java object?

The content consists of layered divs.


I also realized it sometimes appears in front of some layers but still hides behind rest of them (on one page it is hidden behind text placed in span but can be seen through the text)

Sounds like a z-index issue. If it's not Flash or Java, you should be able to give Smooth Menu, and if necessary, all of its sub ULs, a very high z-index value to get the menu to overlay the content in question. Please post a link to the page on your site that contains the problematic script so we can check it out.

I'm having another issue on the same website so if you could have a look on this too I would appreciate it, here's the link to my thread with this problem:


Kind Regards,


The another problem is fixed, just the menu seems to be messed up. I've tried to add high z-index (90) but nothing changes.

Any ideas?

On your page I see menu5 and menu6 with a sub menu, though since there is no text in the vicinity, when they drop down, I can't see them being overshadowed by any content...

Let me show you what I mean :)


It's a specific IE7 related problem. The submenus appears below any content.
