    Spry Menu Problem - IE

    Hi,

    My Spry menu works perfectly fine in Firefox & Safari, however, getting a problem in Internet Explorer on my other laptop.

    Its a horizontal menu, and the drop down menu is not aligning right under the horizontal bar, it is falling a little over to the right hand side.

    The copyright date on the code caught my eye. It seems to be very old code, and a preliminary version at that. Have you looked for an updated version? What version of IE is running on your laptop?

    In any case, you might be better off simply choosing a different menu system that's more up-to-date. Don't put undue effort to support old versions of IE. If it works on IE8 and up, you're covering the overwhelming majority.

    Iv'e got IE8.

    I'm aso using dreamweaver, so it puts the coding in for me? There seems to be so many problems regarding SpryMenus in IE, yet working fine in other browsers. No other solutions are working.

    If you need any more questions from me to help, please let me know!.

    Iv'e sorted the problem.

    For anyone having the same problem, it was caused by me aligning the text CENTRE under ul.MenuBarHorizontal li.

    Align it LEFT, then centre each Menu Bar Title yourself.

    Worked for me.
    Thanks.
