Hello folks,

I have adapted the infamous 'Suckerfish' drop down menu for this test page http://www.skyrocket.com.au/Concepts/SPA/indexTEST.html. It seems to have a bug in IE and adds space above and below each item on the drop down menus. Doesn't happen in Mozilla. I've tried margin and padding: 0 and all the tricks I know but it won't behave. If anyone has seen this before please alert as to where the problem is.

Yes - tried that. Doesn't do anything on IE5. Will try on another machine running IE6...

Suckerfish drop down - IE bug?

Hi

Uggh. That menu is really jerky as it opens each drop down.

Have you tried the DOM Menu system?

This site has a demo (mine) of it:

[edit: new address]

http://209.216.241.33/ctindex.php

It is shown as a horizontal opening down in the header,
a horizontal opeing up in the footer and a left nav.

It's free, the distribution version has [edit: bugs now fixed!] a few bugs you need to fix by hand (read the author's forum thread), and it works well, and is VERY versatile in appearance.

Suckerfish drop down - IE bug?

I have viewed your page in IE 6 and Opera 7 and the menu looks fine, seems to be working good! What version of IE are you viewing in?
