I am new to the whole html and css however i have been building a website for my football for a while now thanks to this website and forum.

The webisite so far seem to be fine in both firefox and chrome. However when checking internet explorer i have now came across an issue that i cant find a answer for.The website houses a menu system on the left hand side of the screen and when the user hover's their pointer over the required menu option another level should appear to show options for that menu header. (The html code for the menu will be added at the end of the comment along with the css style for the menu.) However with internet explorer the second level menu will not appear and i dont know why.

 

If some could explain why this is happening or give me an idea into fixing the issue.

 

 

HTML menu code

<div class="box"> <img src="../Pictures/Main-Site/Menu.jpg" width="140px" style="margin-left:6px; margin-top:2px; margin-bottom:4px;"/> <br/> <div id="menuwrapper"><!-- Navigation System --> <ul><!-- LEVEL ONE --> <li><a href="index.html">Home</a></li> <li><a href="Squads.html">Squads</a> <ul><!-- LEVEL TWO --> <li><a href="SaturdaySquad.html">Saturday Squad</a></li> <li><a href="SundaySquad.html">Sunday Squad</a></li> </ul> </li> <li><a href="Fixtures.html">Team Fixtures</a> <ul><!-- LEVEL TWO --> <li><a href="SatFixtures.html">Saturday Team</a> <!--<ul> LEVEL THREE <li><a href="SatLeagueCup.html">League Cup</a></li> <li><a href="SatLeagueCup.html">GDSML Cup</a></li> <li><a href="SatFixtures.html#September">September</a></li> <li><a href="SatFixtures.html#October">October</a></li> <li><a href="SatFixtures.html#November">November</a></li> <li><a href="SatFixtures.html#December">December</a></li> <li><a href="SatFixtures.html#January">January</a></li> <li><a href="SatFixtures.html#February">February</a></li> <li><a href="SatFixtures.html#March">March</a></li> <li><a href="SatFixtures.html#April">April</a></li> </ul>--> </li> <li><a href="SunFixtures.html">Sunday Team</a> <!--<ul> LEVEL THREE <li><a href="SunFixtures.html#August">August</a></li> <li><a href="SunFixtures.html#September">September</a></li> <li><a href="SunFixtures.html#October">October</a></li> <li><a href="SunFixtures.html#November">November</a></li> <li><a href="SunFixtures.html#December">December</a></li> <li><a href="SunFixtures.html#January">January</a></li> <li><a href="SunFixtures.html#February">February</a></li> <li><a href="SunFixtures.html#March">March</a></li> <li><a href="SunFixtures.html#April">April</a></li> </ul>--> </li> </ul> </li> <li><a href="#">League Tables</a> <ul><!-- LEVEL TWO --> <li><a href="SatLeagueTable.html">Saturday League</a></li> <li><a href="SunLeagueTable.html">Sunday League</a></li> </ul> </li> <li><a href="Sponsors.html">Sponsors</a> <ul><!-- LEVEL TWO --> <li><a href="http://www.carringtondean.com" target="_blank">Carrington Dean</a></li> <li><a href="http://www.musicmagpie.com" target="_blank">Musicmagpie</a></li> <li><a href="http://www.turnbullmccarron.com" target="_blank">Turnbull and McCarron</a></li> </ul> </li> <li><a href="#">About Us</a> <ul><!-- LEVEL TWO --> <li><a href="ContactUs.html">Contact Us</a></li> <li><a href="http://www.facebook....100003892391812" target="_blank">FACEBOOK</a></li> </ul> </li> <!--<li><a href="Members_Area/index.html">Members</a> <ul> <li><a href="Members_Area/join_form.php">New Members</a></li> <li><a href="Members_Area/login_form.php">Sign In</a></li> <li><a href="lost_pw.php">Lost Password</a></li> <li><a href="password_change.php">Change Password</a></li> </ul> </li>--> </ul> </div> <br/> <img src = "../Pictures/Main-Site/RoyalArmsScotland.png" width = "120" height = "130" style="margin-left:10%;"/> </div>

I've tested your code IE7, 8, 9 & 10 and it works fine for me. It's possible that you have something else in your html/css that you are not sharing that is causing a problem. The first thing I would look for is what do you have showing that is to the right of the left menu? If you have a slideshow or flash using positioning then it's possible that the slideshow (or whatever) is overlaying on top of the left menu's flyout.

 

You can copy the code you have posted on this forum and test it on a separate page so you can see that it does indeed works.

Thanks newseed for the responce it is nice to see that there is someone willing to help in this matter.

 

I will be looking into that but i only have a div next to the menu which houses all the information in relation to what page the user will be on.

 

I would have gave you the website address but i have recently took it off the web the now until i get this issue solved. No point in paying for a website that does not work on the main brower given with pc's and laptops.

 

if there was a way to show you the code files i would happly do so. Is there any possible way of solving this by bring the menu to the front if it is hiding?

 

once again thanks for the help in this matter

Still not enough info. I was looking for something with positioning or javascript or flash. It's hard to knows what it actually happening without a url of your site. Upload the whole thing to a temp site folder and provide a url. I should be able to see what's going on then.

Hi newseed sorry that wasnt what you were looking for. Im new to the whole website building and still learning as i go (best way for it lol)

 

Anyway I have started up an old online account for the website and have uploaded about 90% of the site (not all pictures have been uploaded). Here is the address

http://bellgrovetemp.site11.com/ I have left the default.php in there as well so you can see the file set up i am using aswell i hope this will help.

 

Just click on Main_Site if you wish to view the website running.

You page is going into quirks mode for IE which is why the menu is not working. The correct doctype should be <!DOCTYPE html>

 

Also, you have some css style links that are not inside the head tags:

 

<!DOCTYPE>

<html>

<!-- ************************ STYLE SHEETS *************************** -->

<link rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" href="../Stylesheets/Main_Sheet.css"/>

<link rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" href="../Stylesheets/Menus/Menu_System.css"/>

<link rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" href="../Stylesheets/Pages/index_page.css"/>

<!-- ***************************************************************** -->

<!-- ************************ JAVASCRIPTS *************************** -->

 

<!-- ***************************************************************** -->

<head>

 

Move your <head> tag to be just after the <html> tag.

 

Change those two things and I think you menu will begin to work.
