    Default smoothmenu problem in IE9

    I have created a website for my kids school and use smoothmenu for the navigation. In Chrome the menus look fine but in IE9 it displays all of the menu items and dropdowns without hovering/clicking on any links...

    Can anyone please help?

    Thanks in advance

    Yes, in the future, please include a link to the demo page of the DD script you are using.

    In this particular case I took the trouble of looking at your page and saw what script you were using and fortunately I'm familiar with it. There is some problem with the HTML markup for the menu (two extra closing </li> tags). Other browsers are error correcting it for you. Make a backup copy of the page first, just in case, and then replace the menu's HTML markup with this:

    HTML Code:
    			<div id="smoothmenu1" class="ddsmoothmenu">
    				<ul>
    					<li><a href="index.asp">Home</a></li>

    The browser cache may need to be cleared and/or the page refreshed to see changes.

    BTW, you are using an older version of the script and css for this menu. Once you've fixed things, you might want to look into updating:

    Oh, and you're using 2 versions of jQuery on the page. I'd change the first one to 1.8 and get rid of the second.
