I take the horizontal menu created by Menu Builder without any modifications and try it out on my web site in Internet Explorer. The submenu's won't stay open as I move the cursor down from the top menu to the submenu? How can I correct this?

Thanks, Tom

I just tested that menu in IE here and it worked correctly for me. What version of IE and on what OS are you using?

That is your issue unfortunately. You need to have IE 9 / IE10. With XP being discontinued by Microsoft in just a few months, we have decided not to devote too much time to a dead and dying OS. ;)

However I did just try with IE 8 and XP here and it is still working as it should.

This "almost" answers my question... I see XP is not listed as a supported OS for Menu Builder. There are actually two questions to this in my mind. The first is whether I can use/run Menu Builder and create menu systems on an XP sp/3 computer for VSD created websites.

The second, and probably more relevant question is whether the code generated by Menu Builder (saying it was built on Win 7) will operate correctly on websites when visitors machines are still running XP and older browsers?

My concern is (having worked in Corporate IT), that XP on desktops is not going away any time soon, whether Microsoft believes this or not!

The software will work just fine on XP and should for the most part work with IE 8. Just remember IE 8 has many limitations and is extremely old and outdated. It is after all a 12 year old OS. ;)

So in "theory" you should be fine. We just do not make any guarantees for the XP OS.

Okay, understood. I've downloaded the Menu Builder trial and will see what I can do with it tonight.

The menu builder has a huge number of settings.:cool: CC has thought of pretty much everything but the kitchen sink. I think that's being added in the next version.:lol:
