View Full Version : Conflict between 2 scripts, but only in Internet Explorer. Help?

1) Script Title:
a. Dynamic AJAX Content
b. Drill Down Menu (v1.6)

2) Script URL (on DD):
a. http://www.dynamicdrive.com/dynamicindex17/ajaxcontent.htm
b. http://www.dynamicdrive.com/dynamicindex1/drilldownmenu.htm

3) Describe problem:
I am having a conflict problem with two scripts from DD, the strange thing is it is only conflicting in Internet Explorer.

Basically what happens is if I load this page from my website (http://wbs.dj-vk.com/yanmar/spareparts.php) (an engine parts catalogue using a combination of MySQL, PHP and the two above scripts to deliver the content) in Internet Explorer the Drill Down Menu breaks the Dynamic AJAX Content and causes Internet Explorer to report the error ''document.getElementById(...)' is null or not an object'. However in firefox the two work side by side without a problem.

I have looked through the 2 scripts and tried to find any conflicting variables or resources and have had no success. I have to be missing something, I know Internet Explorer is horrible when it comes to web standards and I'm thinking maybe there is a part of one of the scripts that does something different when the browser = IE and that is what causes the conflict. But I haven't been able to find anything like that.

Would really appreciate some insight to this problem, thanks guys
