nav bar not functioning in IE8 RRS feed

  • Question

  • I created a test nav bar at but have noticed it works fine in IE9, firefox, chrome, safari but in IE8 all the sublinks attached to academics do not display.  Any help would be appreciated in figuring out the problem.

  • You'd have better luck asking at, where the menu was developed. I haven't looked at the style sheet, but there are probably fall-back kludges for browsers that don't fully support CSS3 (for which IE8 and earlier browsers (from all sources) have spotty support).

    Anything that uses an evolving standard that is far from completion (like CSS3) is always going to require more work. I'd not use a CSS3 menu at the present time.

    This isn't an Expression Web question; it's a question for the menu developers.

  • Heh, heh... what did you expect? CSS3 (and HTML5) is far from being a standard yet, and even the browsers which support it have different implementations, which is why you have "moz-", "webkit-", and so-called "standard" CSS3 directives.

    Like it or not, it is a fact that millions of PCs out there are still using IE6, IE7, and IE8, none of which support either HTML5 or CSS3. That means that creating critical functionality for your site, such as basic site navigation, using unsupported technology is an exercise in futility.
