View Full Version : CSS image gallery problem in IE

May 21st, 2007, 05:26 AM
First off, my site can be found at www.themultimediasite.com/ron

When you roll over a thumbnail in one of the galleries a larger image is supposed to be displayed beneath it. In firefox it works fine and the larger image shows up, but in version 6 and earlier of internet explorer the large image doesn't appear.

What I did was preload the large image off-screen using the position attribute in CSS. I then have the image shift into view when a certain thumbnail is rolled over. Can anybody explain why it doesn't work in IE? I have supplied the CSS if that helps.

To load it off screen this is the CSS:
#nav li ul {
position: absolute;
left: -5000px;
top: 250px;

To move it when rollover occurs, this is the CSS:
li#slot2:hover ul {
margin-left: -45px;
left: auto;
width: 600px;
height: 280px;

Well, it looks like you may have changed the page. I don't see the elements that you are mentioning.

Your code above depends on the li:hover selector. Keep in mind that in IE6 the :hover pseudo class is only supported for anchor elements with an href attribute. To get it working in IE6, JavaScript may be the right solution for you.

Oh I'm sorry, I did put the wrong link. This is the page with the gallery: http://themultimediasite.com/ron/print.html

I thought I might have to go with javascript to get my galleries working. I'm not too familiar with javascript though. Do you know where I could find some examples or tutorials?
