I want to use this menu: http://www.artviper.eu/mootoolsmenu/

I've placed all the files in my javascript folder and called them via requirements in the page.php file. It works perfectly in Firefox but not IE. Any ideas anyone?

Perhaps you need to ask over on the mootools site. Which IE version you talking about? 6?

IE7. I can get it working normally when i apply the script to a standard HTML page... just can't get it working through Silverstripe.

It seems to be in the code:

window.onload=function()


in one of my javascript files

If i take that away it still doesn't work but there is no error message.

Can anyone help please?

Ok, i've nearly given up. Can someone just confirm that i'm putting all the right files/scripts in the right places... i'm sure this is an easy solution.

1) Requirements::javascript("mysite/javascript/mootools.js"); - js file source as per mootools website code
Requirements::javascript("mysite/javascript/mootools2.js"); - js code that was embedded in HTML page but has been moved into the javascript folder to keep separate from page.ss

Both of these files are being called from page.php

2) Add menu code to page.ss

<div id="container">
<div id="menu">
<% control Menu(1) %>
<ul style="padding: 0;margin: 0">
<li class="$LinkingMode"><a href="$Link" class="toggler" title="$Title.XML">$MenuTitle</a></li>
</ul>
<% end_control %>
</div>
</div>

3) CSS has been added

Is there something else i'm missing? Do i have to put extra code in the actual page.ss file?

Can someone please let me know. It's driving me nuts!

Could it be a doctype issue?

You could test your theory by opening your _config.php file in the mysite/ folder and add this line

ContentNegotiator::disable();

See http://doc.silverstripe.com/doku.php?id=ContentNegotiator

Hi Briohny

Did you try:

window.addEvent('domready', function() {
// your init code here
});

instead of window.onload=function() too?
