Hi All,
Got some odd behavior I haven't encountered before. Some menus working fine, but others not showing up at all.
View it in fire fox and it looks fine to me.
But the home link and the new 'test' link don't show up at all in IE6 and Opera. Not even in the source code?
I've done some ?flush=1 for the sake of it.

Also both IE6 and Opera showed a tendency to want to redirect me to security/login.

The home page is the page that Uncle Cheese has helped me with. It's an extension of page but with many attachments. So nothing too unusual. And the test page is like the rest of the menus that work, an instance of 'Page'.

Has any one experienced issues with Opera and IE6, apart form the obvious layout issues.

In Firefox, IE and Opera, it all looks exactly the same to me including what menu options are listed. In none of them does the homepage work, it redirects to the security/login page. Have you set some permissions for this page by chance?

Oh wow you're right. I've never set page permissions for any site I've set up with silver stripe. And I definitely didn't change it manually, must have happen in one of the many builds. Actually my ImagePage must have been defaulting to that, because the other page I couldn't see was first created as imagepage then switched to a normal page.

AND (blush) must be why the menu items were showing up in fire fox, because I WAS LOGGED IN! man I'm a retard, no offensive to retards.

Thanks for unveiling the mysteries for me.
