Here's my new site,

People tell menus just don't show at all... in IE for Mac, escept on the home page, but interior pages, nada. I only use one DrawMenus() function.

Anyone know if the V5 let's you use 2 or more (if you have 2 or more menus, ie vertical and horiz)?

Maz, any clues? And thank you for all your prior input on my posts!

I use IE6 on Win2K. Version 5.11 - Built: Monday April 5 2004 - 12:52

You're in an area that confuses me, I have trouble following it when it goes beyond the basics. But this is out of place

maybe it should be:

left="offset=?"; thats the only one I know

even if it does something I don't know about then it should have quotes


Done properly I don't see why there is a need to isolate ie and the filters only work in ie.

Why not copy it, put it back together clean without all the // and add in appropriately.

Seems to me you are making it more complicated than it really is.

Maybe... too complicated.

I am centering the site on the page... and of course when you do that, you must center you menus which mean, you must:

--center the menus dynamically, or
--make them table cell bound, which I wanted to avoid, if possible.

Also, what if someone resizes the page... you must reset the menus if they're dynamically drawn, that is, if they're dependent on the screen width.

Do you know of a better way to center two menu and them offset them? any one?

Should be simple, seems like there are 2 of you here trying to do the same thing, maybe you'll spot each others errors ;)

one or both, slightly different:

left="offset=100px"; (?px)

That will center the menu 100px to the right.

top=100; (?px)

those all go above your main menu items.

How about an inside page?

Does it resize properly?

Funny sometimes the main menu in IE 6.0.2800.1106IS appears way off too the right of center. Upon reload it's perfect... but the first load seems erratic. See here:

Would a better order to menus potentially clear that up?

I wonder if anyone else experiences that here?

Pertinent code:

Code: Select all

with(milonic=new menuname("main_menu")){

I added:

Code: Select all


to /menu/menu_data.js and it seemed to fix it after a clearing cache etc.

However, I am concern because I have 2 lines reading: drawMenus();

In this site, technically I have 3 menus: the banner, the top nav, and the left nav. Banner is last so it has drawMenus(); as the last line. On one site I got into trouble because I had multiple drawMenus(); lines.

Anyone familiar with this problem?
