    Hi, I have inserted the menu in to my website with a php include http://www.weddingqld.com. All works well on my computer using IE10 and other browsers, but on another computer running IE8 the drop menu’s don’t appear. I can get the vanilla install of smart menus working in IE8, but not as a php include. Is this possible? Or, is there another way to do it. I’d like just 1 header file that all pages reference. That way if I make a change to the navigation, I don’t have to republish the whole site.

    Also, I seem to have downloaded smartmenus-0.9.3 and smartmenus-master. Which should I be using?

    thank you for your help 🙂

    Hi,

    The problem seems to be that your page does not have any doctype set and IE renders it in quirks mode. And in order to work correctly the script requires a proper doctype that will force standards-compliant rendering mode. So to fix the issue just add the HTML5 doctype at the beginning of your pages – e.g.:

    <!DOCTYPE html>
    <html>
    ...

    Cheers!
