CSS Popup Menu / IE7 specific issue

Recommended Posts

The popups from the previous post are now working fine in everything including IE7. Problem in IE7, though. When mousing below the second option, the submenu disappears.

 

Running IE7? check this link:

My best guess is the nested <ul> is not being rendered as part of the parent <li> and mousing outside the height of the parent <li> is making the nested <ul> disappear.

 

the magic part of the CSS that makes it all work:

ul.menu li:hover > ul {
display:block;
}

 

Something like this should do the trick -- but I can't figure out how to code it:

ul.menu li ul:hover {
ul.menu li ul { /* This might explode all the menus, instead of just one, but you get the idea */
	display:block;
}
}

 

 

 

the whole story (If you're interested in all of it):
