Dropdown menu not working

Posted on 2012-04-10
Last Modified: 2012-04-10
I am developing in visual studio 6... classic asp.
I have a drop down menu that is working fine on the developing machine only.
It appears to be a css drop down menu (I inherited this)
When I push everything out to GoDaddy or my own internal server the drop down doesn't work.
I haven't provided any code or anything as I don't believe this to be a code issue since it does work on the dev machine.

It may be you're not deploying the CSS (or javascript) required to run the menu.  I'd double check that all the required files are present first.

It seems that your closing your <li> tags before the <ul> drop down part.
I'm not sure if your doing it, or if it's your server that's doing it.  Either way the code below is how it should be.
See below:
<ul class="menu">
     <li class="level1 active"><a class="level1 first active" href="index.asp"><span>Home</span></a></li>
     <li class="level1"><a class="level1 parent current" href="aboutUs.asp"><span>About Us</span></a>

Wow!  Thought that this would never be fixed via EE!
Strange how my dev machine tolerated this....

Thank you so much!
