As always, it looks good in firefox, opera, safari, and ie7 but not in ie6. This is what my menu is suppose to look like:

As you can see it’s your standard horizontal dropdown menu and I followed the suckerfish menu tutorial found on alistapart.com. It was working fine until I tried styling the child uls on my own. This is the result in IE6:

Here’s my HTML:

   </ul>
 
 
 
 
 </li>
</ul>
</div>

and the CSS:

/*Main Menu, made using Suckerfish technique*/
#mainnav{
width:832px;
height:30px;
background:#000;
color:#fff; 
margin:0 auto;
background-image:url(../images/navx.png);
background-position:top left;
background-repeat:repeat-x;    
}


#mainnav ul {
  
padding0;
  
margin0;
  list-
stylenone;
  
background:#122742;
  
color:#fff;
  
text-align:left;
 
  
}


#mainnav ul li {
  
floatleft;
  
positionrelative;
  
padding-left:2em;
  
padding-top:.4em;
 
  
}


#mainnav ul li ul li{
width:25em;
padding:0;
padding:.5em;
border-bottom:1px #18314F solid;
}



#mainnav li ul {
  
displaynone;
  
positionabsolute
  
top1em;
  
left0;
  
}


#mainnav li > ul {
    
topauto;
    
leftauto;
    
}



#mainnav li:hover ul, #mainnav li.over ul{ display: block; }


#mainnav li a:link, #mainnav li a:visited{
color:#fff;
text-decoration:none;
width:15em;
padding:10px;

}

#mainnav li a:hover{
color:#ccc;
text-decoration:underline;
}

#mainnav ul#nav li ul {
position:absolute;
left:20px;
top:20px;

}

#mainnav ul#nav li ul li a:hover{
width:15em;

}

I can post the rest of the CSS if you like, I didn’t have enough characters left in this post. I don’t know, something could be overriding my css rules of the menu? the positioning was off in IE7 until I set a absolute position to the ul tags. Also, where can I find more resources / tutorials on suckerfish and is there a generator for it. I can never get horizontal drop down menus working right. I don’t want to resort to obtrusive javascript and conditional statements or complicate the html structure by adding td tags as I’ve seen in other tutorials on the net.

I noticed some threads are getting replies while mine is not. Is mine too hard to follow? Sorry, I can’t provide an actually link because of security reasons.

Can you posts the other codes? Just asking why are you using html not using dreamweaver? Codes are there already and designs are there?

Suckerfish tutorials are hard to find.

So is the issue that the dropdown menu has two columns. This might be cause by the CSS “#mainnav li > ul”.

Suckerfish menu will display as a list of links in browsers such as Netscape 4 that don’t properly support CSS

You obviously need to hide the lists that we want to ‘drop down’ but to make things as accessible as possible we need to avoid using display

The ‘position: relative;’ on the divs below the dropdown menu’s were causing the problems (I dont know why though?). I removed them from the divs below and added them to other elements of the site (eg the right div form now has a position of relative rather than the div itself). It all seems to be working ok now.şiir Thanks

Another option is to use jQuery. I use it a lot and find that it works well across browsers.

In Internet Explorer with Javascript disabled it will just display the main menu bar which should be set up with links to pages where the sub-menus can be easily accessed
