View Full Version : IE 7 & 8 drop down navigation issue

07-27-2012, 10:35 AM
Hello everyone - this is my first post.

I'm still learning CSS and HTML and this problem has me stumped.
I noticed a tutorial over on webdesign tuts about a HTML5 responsive skeleton layout for widescreen devices. It's really good and the only problem I can find is that in IE 7 & 8 the navigation does not work properly. When you hover over 'ENTERTAINMENT' menu the drop down items are taking on the width of the top level element and not the width of the actual item and also the hover is not activating when hovering over item number two and onwards?

Here is a link to my test area dh1298.dreamhosters.com (http://dh1298.dreamhosters.com)

I would really like to use this skeleton layout for an upcoming project I am working on so any help will be greatly appreciated.

Thanks you

I've managed to sort out the width issue with width:auto; however the hover is still not working - has anyone any ideas why this is so in IE7 & 8 please?

Thank you.
