View Full Version : Accordion Menu jumping

02-15-2010, 11:07 PM
1) Script Title: Accordion Menu Script - Arrow Side menu

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

3) Describe problem: My client says the 'technical' link when expanded jumps and does not open smoothly.. as in expanding over-sized before shrinking to where it belongs. It looks great on my end and a few other computers. He says he's using IE8. However, I used the same menu on another site and he says it opens smoothly.

The trouble site:
both are the same site, linked to each other.

the working site: (Still work in progress)

Can I get some assistance on ensuring the menu expands smoothly on his end?

please and thank you!

I hate to bump, but any assistance please? my client just emailed me about it.. again. and I still can't find the issue on my own.

This issue typically arises when a page is missing a valid doctype in IE. Looking at your page, you do have one declared. I'll try and take a closer look later today.

thank you, it would be appreciated. I tried looking earlier, and I'll look again as well later

Ok this one certainly gave me the runaround, but I think I found the issue. There is a missing </a> tag in your menu header, which needs to be there:

<div class="arrowsidemenu">

<div><a href="index.html" title="Home">Home</a></div>
<div class="menuheaders"><a href="toremove/" title="CSS">Technical</a></div>
<ul class="menucontents">
<li><a href="bulbs.html">Bulb Index</a></li>
<li><a href="traction.html">Traction Tire Chart</a></li>

<li><a href="reset.html">Reset Codes</a></li>
<div><a href="http://shop.ebay.com/TheTrainDoctor/m.html?_nkw=&_armrs=1&_from=&_ipg=25 target="_blank">E-Bay Store</a></div>
<div><a href="schedule.html">Schedule</a></div>
<div><a href="dropoff.html">Authorized Drop-offs</a></div>
<div><a href="links.html">Links</a></div>
<div><a href="contactdoctor.html">Contact</a></div>


Without it IE crumbles apparently. :)

Nice to have a challenge once in a while, huh?

Thank you :) I added that bit in the codings.. now to wait for my client to test it for me. I HOPE it works.. if it does, you would be the most awesome person ever!

It works for me now... before it didn't... It should work for your client.
