Layout: Avoid IE Restricted Content for Simple Menustarted by Jgranda on Mar 17, 2005 — RSS Feed
Hello, I am a novice webmaster. I copied the code from the "Drop-down Menus with CSS" using the simple menus (great article)
and placed it into my web pages.
I like the way the menus are displayed and the code was easy for me to understand and modify. However, I want the website to meet the least amount of resistance such as no security warnings. The site is a corporate site geared to senior financial professionals (simple but professional is key).
I have seen other drop down menus on sites on my machine without displaying this active content security message.
Are there ways for me to correct the code to avoid this issue or other similar code you would recommend? I do not have Flash.
Thanks for your assistance,
I'm sorry, I can't replicate the problem. My XP Pro is bang up to date with security patches and the menus work just fine.
Go to the page now and check
If you are getting security warnings on your page, it must be something else that's causing it. I have to admit, I often see security warnings in IE6 even when there is no obvious reason.
Being a corporate site (with viewers being conservative financial types), we will have people who may not change their security settings.
I just noticed when I went back to that site that I don't get that IE content blocking message. I am going to recheck the code but if there is something that likely would cause this message, it would be much appreciated.
I think it's a new feature. I noticed it for the first time yesterday when I used IE to preview a site I was working on. I think I just clicked on the message to enable the script.
