rMenu Update – IE7

Another update to Ruthsarian Menus. A hack was added a few weeks back to help IE7 which was not triggering mouseover if the cursor entered a menu item in an area not occupied by text. The hack was to trigger hasLayout, but that created a new bug where menu items that had sub-menus would display a small gap below the parent LI of the sub-menu when it had focus. The fix for that was to float all the LI elements in a vertical menu. At the time I didn’t have a way to target IE7 specifically. Now I do, so I’ve updated this hack to target only IE7.

The hack? A take on the star-html hack (* html {}) that I first read about here. The hack takes the form of *:first-child+html {}. IE7 will apply any rules using this selector, but FireFox and other browsers will not. So use this just like you normally would the star-html hack (*:first-child+html ul.rMenu li{}. Also updated the Skidoo Redux download with the updated rmenu.css. Cool? Beans.

  1. Hi!

    The Skidoo Redux layout is fine at your site but there are problems with the one in the updated zip file.

    For example, in the ‘skidoo_redux.css’ file the lines:

    @import “../../utility_css/visual_consistencies.css”;
    @import “../../rMenu/rmenu.css”;

    are wrong. There are only one ‘css’ folder with the css files.

    Thanks for your stuff.

  2. My local Skidoo Redux still looks different than the online one.
    Missing “>>” from menus and some missing text but I think the missing text is intentional.

  3. Open up the rMenu stylesheet and locate references to the expand-*.gif images. Change the URLs to those images to match the location of the image relative to the stylesheet and you’ll be good to go.
