problem with Movable Type archives?

Poster: KatWalsh
Dated: Monday June 16 2003 - 2:11:49 BST


I've licensed the menu for use on 2 of my personal sites, and have noticed the same problem with both. I used Movable Type (a blog) for my main page/update log on both and it seems to have a problem with the menu when viewing it's archives.

The menu has no problem working on the main index page (created through Movable Type) as seen <a href="" >here</a>, but MT automatically creates archives out of the posts made, and that's where the problem comes in. An example is <a href="" >here</a>. The menu itself loads, but none of the menus will drop down. This happens on both sites in the same spot, (but the menus work perfectly throughout the rest of the sites) so I am assuming the problem is specifc to these archive sections, but I am not sure what it is as I have just copied & pasted the code (changing one spot to account for the archives being in a different directory), so the archive code is the same as the code on every other page.

The error it reports says:
Line: 69
Char: 11
Error: Object doesn't support this property or method
Code: 0

Can anyone help me out here?

P.S. If you see some weird html like <br/> - that's part of the MT default templates, I don't know why they do it (the extra slashes don't seem to affect the functioning of the code), and I change it if I remember, but I doubt that has relation here as the main index (which works) would have some of the same extra slashes.

I'm not very code savy, but I played around with this. Finally, I took a page of mine, copied everything starting with the body tag of my page to the closing body tag and pasted it into your page which I had downloaded. Everything worked fine, then I went back to your page and copied the section in the div tags and tried again. The error code was back. I compared the enter page of your site to the archive page and though they both have div sections the archive page has one which says

Code: Select all

div id= container
which is NOT on the first page...I change that code just to check to div id=content one which appears on your first page, and there was no more error message, so...I don't know anything about divs but it seems the problem is somewhere between the menu and that particular code div id=container, sorry I have no idea how to fix it
