Hi!

Im designing a website, but the person who hired me, told me that he found some errors while viewing it with internet explorer, specially ie7, and specifically the error was in the drop down menus, because they either dont show up at all or dont show in the right place.

Can you guys visit the website and see if u have problems, also another favor if u can tell me which browser and version did u view it on.

thank you very much, ill appreciate your help a lot.

the url for the website is:

http://www.sachayaku.org/

Works in Firefox 3 Beta 2, does not work in IE7. If you don't have a lot of experience in web design, one general rule is that for things with lots of CSS and/or Javascript, you need to customize it for each major browser due to a lot of incompatibilities and non-standard behavior among browsers. That means you'll have to use Javascript to detect when IE users visit your site and then add some code to handle that special case.

IE sucks. There is a way to get around it but after looking at that table setup you have, I'm not ready to completely redesign it for you. (The tables mixed with hidden nav is a nightmare.)

Sorry.

There are tons of cross-browser compatible ways to do this... although most of them involve cutting and pasting CSS and or javascript spaghetti in quantities sufficient to satisfy an Italian wedding party. I've been messing around with Blueprint CSS for a week or so, and although some people object to it's layout-oriented structure, it does make it very easy to get the overall grid right without using tables. You can then drop in any number of javascript/CSS menu systems and get good compatibility.

Have fun with it :).
