Another IE6 navbar position problem....

25 New Member
Hi, i've been searching for a solution to this problem but haven't had any joy yet. I have a navbar which positions perfectly in Safari, FF and IE7 - but in IE6, it is pushed out to the right of the page. I'm pretty new to CSS and don't know how to resolve this. If anyone could help, that would be great!

i'll just post the navbar html and css for now as i'm pretty sure that's where the problem lies

Expand|Select|Wrap|Line Numbers
  1. ul#nav {position:relative; margin-left:239px; }
  2. ul#nav li { float:left; list-style-type:none }
  3. ul#nav li a {height:30px; display:block; position:absolute; top:0; text-indent:-9999px; outline:none ; margin-top:160px;}
  4.  
  5. li#navWelcome a, li#navWhoweare a, li#navIndependent a, li#navWhereweare a, li#navLinks a { background:url(navBG.jpg)}

i'm using XHTML 1.0 Transitional - could this be the problem? i usually use XHTML Strict, however, i'm helping out a friend with this problem and he has created his site using Dreamweaver. I had to strip out deprecated tags and styling within the HTML.

Probably not but I wanted to make sure you are using one because IE goes into quirks without it.

I just got back from out of town and not really all here yet.

I made a navbar where the buttons light up when the user moves over them. The only problem was in IE the buttons only light up when hovering over the text. This was not a problem in opera! HOWEVER! When I positioned my navbar directly at the top of the page it works fine even in IE! Moving the navbar down about double the height of the font being used and then it stops working only highling the buttons when over the text, weird no?

www.brilley.co.uk/testMenusMac.asp demonstrates the problem. It works in IBM-IE5 but two problems in Mac-IE5 (I've positioned the popup menus on the page to observe the problem). The popup menus corrupt on Macintosh when you mouseover the NavBar buttons. The second problem is that the two NavBar buttons appear as one button on Mac and the popup menus treat them as one button: mouseover "Home" or "Register" moves the pop-menu to the Home...

I have a horizontal navbar between my banner and the page's main content (divided into three columns). Below the navbar, the left and right columns are fixed and the center is liquid. I want to position the navbar "li"s directly above the center column and make them liquid so they stretch and contract in correspondence with the center column. Is there a way to do this? Thanks. The styling I'm working with now is:

Greetings the group! I see from a few previous postings that I am not the only person having a problem with hidden list item bullets. This question applies to both IE 6, current version, and Firefox 0.8 browsers, which I am using for testing. I have a design in progress that uses a relatively positioned, left-floated, 122px wide navbar, with the main content padded to the right by 10px, wrapping under after it exceeds the height of the...

I'm in the process of changing from a framed to non-framed web. My test site is: http://www.writeonwhidbey.org/_private/ssi/ssitestBOB.html The scrolling navbar, that stays fixed at the top of the page when you scroll down, works for all browsers that I've tried except Opera. (I'm using Opera 7.54). This nav bar is included in every file with SSI.

Hi all :) I have created a horizontal navbar using Xara Menumaker. The Menu items have several dropdown menus. Its a javascript. When the mouse cursor is moved over any menu item, a dropdown list/menu appears. When the page is opened in the browser (as it appears by default), the dropdown menu positions are correctly displayed. But when I scroll the page and then move the mouse over any menu item of the navbar, the dropdown menu is not...

Hi-- I am very new at this and trying to teach myself, and I have run into a roadblock that I can't figure out no matter how many times I Google it......my navbar is a vertical column of images, and I want it to go up next to the rest of the page (which consists of a banner image, a h1 image, and some text). It insists on beginning itself below the text on the page. Here is what I've got (I'm sorry if it's confusing---it is probably a...

Hi, I've created a nav bar using a background image for rollover effects. Everything works as I had hoped, however, for some reason it seems that an area of whitespace (the same size of the background image) is hyperlinked underneath the nav bar. I can't see any errors in the coding below. Any ideas what may be causing this? the page is at http://www.maguiresonline.co.uk/wosis/files/nickysnav.html the html.... <body...

This is a long shot, but I have no idea why my navbar is being temperamental in IE6. Everything looks ok on page load, but when you fill out the online form and click Submit, the navbar either disappears or goes about 100px where it should be, then when you hover over each menu item, the navbar goes back to where it should be! I'm using an AJAX form which dynamically inserts a loading bar and success/failure mesage without reloading the...

Hello folks, I am unable to find appropriate documentation on the type promotion of bit-fields when using the generalised comparison operator "<=>". The problem is that using the GNU compilers, it seems that the internal comparison operator "<=>" tries to promote arguments from unsigned to signed. This is as boiled down as I can make it.

Overview: Windows 11 and 10 have less user interface control over operating system update behaviour than previous versions of Windows. In Windows 11 and 10, there is no way to turn off the Windows Update option using the Control Panel or Settings app; it automatically checks for updates and installs any it finds, whether you like it or not. For most users, this new feature is actually very convenient. If you want to control the update process,...
