I'm sorry for the late response, I haven't had chance to work on the website yet as I've been pretty busy these past couple of weeks.

Anyway, thanks a lot for your help, I removed the comments for the non-drop down levels and it worked a treat for pulling all the floating elements together. There's just small a problem with the widths, but I'm sure I'll be able to work it out.

Thanks again =)

Great site, fantastic examples. Thanks for sharing these! I'm trying to use flyoutmenu2 in an iframe. The problem I'm having is that links to the right of the iframe are being rendered inactive, as if the browser is reserving space for the flyouts and giving them highest priority. This happens in all modern browsers, and only when I use iframe (a server-side include is not an option for me). Is this a z-index issue? How can I get those "underlying" links to work with the iframe?

Thanks in advance!

Hi Stu,
Thank you for your site. I have learned so much from it. But it's the first time I am trying one of your menu on my site at . I had to play around with width because in IE6 the last box was coming down under the first one. It's ok now even though it does look as good as in Firefox and IE7.
BUT how can I center it under my header?
And I tried to give it a black background, which shows in IE6 but not in IE7 and Firefox?
Thank you

In Mac Camino, the third layer doesn't work correctly--it displays all the tabs at once in an overlapping way so they can't be seen. Any suggestions?

Hi there Stu
For someone starting off to the webdesign world your site is a great place of inspiration and learning. I'm trying to adopt this version of menu for a design but I'm stuck on adopting the exact width for each menu top level menu element. If you have some spare minutes please have a look here: There's a brief explenation of what i want to achive and I would really appreciate your guidance on the matter.

Hi Stu,
This is great stuff as has been said already - thks. Can I ask you how you manage all content - in particular the menus? It must be a huge task, and being about the launch into designing several sites I desperately need help to chose the right technologies to run the site with.
I know it's not CSS but hey....
Many thanks

Hi there,

As I am implementing this menu, I came across some problems. I cannot really figure out why it goes wrong at my website. Since it is (still) not online, I cannot demo it to you guys.

The problem is as follows:

I have this menu. Below that I have two divs lined next to eachother with an overflow: hidden . This works fine, until I hover the menu in IE6.0. As soon as my mouse goes over the menu, my page shortens down to the lenght of the second div (right colomn).

As I am not sure if it has something to do with the menu, or with my code, I thought I'd post my problem in here. Perhaps some of you can point me into the right direction?

gavin staniforth: @ the mainpage you can read some instructions on how to get the code/css.

I'm using the ultimate dropdown menu v2 on one of my websites. It's a really good CSS dropdown menu. I only have a top level and a second level. All 3rd level CSS code is removed. The menu works fine in IE 7, Firefox, even in IE 5.5. My problem is IE 6 when I open the page and scroll through the menu, one 2nd level width is shorter then in the CSS stylesheet defined. Instead of e.g. 235 px width only 215 px. This very annoying. Please help me with this problem. The stylesheet:

The HTML-code:

The menu is placed in the midsect, naviright div.

I hope you can help. Thanks !
