    Hi,

    I have a problem with the Smartmenus 1.0-beta on IE8, when you run on this mode or even you open it with a IE8, the menu appears like a tree menu and not like a horizontal menu.

    This is the way you can test it:

    Download IEtester or change on IE10 or IE11 the document mode on the developer tools to IE8.

    Browse your smartmenus code and open the index file.

    This is the result:

    Ietester

    IE 11 (with ie8 mode)

    ¿There is any way to fix this problem? I have severals computers with IE8 and i can’t upgrade their ie to a newer version due a restriction of the javascript app/code that im using.

    Thanks.

    Hi,

    This happens because Respond.js does not work when a page is loaded directly from the hard drive and not from a web server. And without Respond.js IE8 can’t load the desktop styles and that’s why it displays the mobile-first collapsible version of the menu.

    If you install the demo on a web server and load it via http/https it should work just fine in IE8.

    Cheers!

    Hi Admin,

    It’s is strange but with the version 0.97 this problem not occurs.

    I tested with an apache server but still same results.

    Regards.

    Sorry for this delay! Just got back from my summer vacation.

    v0.9.7 isn’t mobile first and doesn’t need Respond.js to render the desktop styles in IE7/8. Not sure why it didn’t work when you accessed the demo via a web server. If you install the default demo on a web server and load it via http://…, it should work just fine – it’s practically the same as loading:

    in IE8.
