    Thumbs up Nav works in IE6 not in IE7

    I built a horizontal navigation dropdown menu and it works in IE6, but when we were pushed IE7 it stoped working. Is it my javascript or is it my CSS (do I need html hacks for IE7 )

    Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    Thanks in advance!!!!!

    HTML Code:
    [B]Javascript:[/B]
    
    // JavaScript Document
    window.addEvent('domready', function(){
    		$('drop_down_menu').getElements('li.menu').each( function( elem ){
    			var list = elem.getElement('ul.links');	
    			var myFx = new Fx.Slide(list).hide();			
    			elem.addEvents({
    				'mouseenter' : function(){ 					
    					myFx.cancel();
    					myFx.slideIn();	
    					this.set('tween', {
    				duration: 1000,
    				transition: Fx.Transitions.easeOut // This could have been also 'bounce:out' transition: Fx.Transitions.Bounce.easeOut add if you want to bounce
    			}).tween('height', '100%')
    			.morph({
    				opacity: 0.8,
    				backgroundColor: '#0e1f51'
    			});
    				},
    				'mouseleave' : function(){ 
    					myFx.cancel();
    					myFx.slideOut();
    					this.set('tween', {}).tween('height', '20px')
    			.morph({

    You what? It is obvious that you have built nothing, you have used a javascript framework. The question is which framework? JQuery, MooTools, Protototype? Other?

    My apologies

    I apologize for the miss quote, "I built a horizontal navigation dropdown menu"

    It is a combination of MooTools and another JavaScript tutorial, which was so long ago I do not remember.

    Will I not be able to get help until I figure out the other framework?

    Confusing of you. MooTools is a library/framework, not a tutorial. Insufficient information. A link to test page will be required, I think.

    I really need HELP!

    Again I apologize for my wording; I did not mean that MooTools was a tutorial. The other source I used was a tutorial, to get the drop down drop over the background image. I included some code from that tutorial in the MooTools framework. I am not trying to come off like I am a JavaScript expert, I am not....I am a beginner, so my terminology may be wrong, but I really do need help. I can not give a link because of security issues. Also Fang, thanks for the link, but I am using ColdFusion. Is this forum for PHP and JavaScript only?

    I need to know why this is not working in IE7, but it did work in IE6, and has been for a while.

    Thanks guys!

    I can't see how a server language, ColdFusion, would affect the problem.
    The 'tutorial' example works, except for the z-index. Compare that with your code.
