Collapsible menu and IE 11

Posted on 2014-01-30
Last Modified: 2014-01-30
I was using an outline java script for expanding / collapsing menus. My code is working perfectly in IE 9 and IE 10. In IE 11, the page displays with all menus expanded. Is there a solution for expanding / collapsing menus that will work in all browsers?

if you're ok with changing your code and using jQuery, then I would recommend jQuery's accordian plug-in:

It's pretty simple to use and set up, and it works in all major browsers

Where did you get that code - it is ancient!

Code also does not work in Chrome or Firefox, reason it doesn't work in IE11 is because IE11 does not report itself in the same way as earlier versions of IE (MSIE).
Since the code is defunct as far as the 21st century is concerned you would be better off taking Monty's advice or search for more updated code that is not over 10 years old.

Here's a jQuery version

jQuery is a javascript framework used in over 50% of all websites to make cross browser js coding really simple.

Cathal: this is exactly what I want to do, but I am not sure how to implement the jQuery. Never used before!

I'll use the fiddle example, I'm sure you can take this then and just add your own menu
This is a full working example, just pop into an html file and load in the browser
<!doctype html>
    border:1px solid red;  
ul ul{
ul li:hover>ul{
    /*display:block;   */
        level 2
        level 2
                level 3

<script src="//"></script>
$(function() {
$('li').click(function(ev) {

Open in new window
