DHTML menu working fine in Firefox not IE6

Posted on 2008-11-13

Using Ultramenu I made a DHTML menu. The submenus fly out to the right correctly in Firefox, but in IE6.0 they fly out to the left and are obscured, creating problems with users not being able to click stuff.

The menus work the same in the Ultramenu program preview, but not so in browser real-time.

    ultramenu is probably using advanced calls that IE6 does not recognize, and you probably will not get IE6 to work as you want with fly-out menus -- it is just too old a browser to support advanced CSS and JS code.  You could google for ultramenu fixes for IE6, but I suspect in the end, it simply will not work right in IE6.

    UM states it is because if the complex CSS layout. Are there any other work arounds? Different type of menu or system?

    UM wrote a new beta fixing the bug. Excellent of them!
