[resolved] Menu and Slider don't work on IE9 in High Security Mode (5 posts)

    Hi,

    I'm going crazy here, have spent days already trying to figure this out. I hope someone out there can help me.

    I've got a site that is basically done (http://clubaleman.sei.cl), with a standard WordPress menu with dropdown items (no special plugin here) and a slider done with m-vSlider. It all works wonderfully, except on Internet Explorer 9 when the security level is on "High". In this case, the menu is displayed as a vertical list and the slider displays only the first image.
    When reducing the security level to medium, it works fine.

    What can I do here? Unfortunately, there are people out there who use that security setting and it's not practical putting a message on the site telling them to change this setting (besides, I haven't found a way to detect this on code side).

    Another site with a menubar plugin works, so does a simple test site I made with a simple menu.

    Does anyone know what is it that gets blocked in this high level by IE9? I suppose it's parts of the Javascript, maybe a jQuery issue?

    Any help would be greatly appreciated.
    Thanks,

    Michael.

    This isn't a WordPress issue, your issue is concerned with the behavior or Internet Explorer.

    You could apply the same or similar functionality the JavaScript provides for the menu, with CSS and only to apply when JavaScript fails. I.e load a stylesheet containing your styles if JavaScript fails.
    For the slideshow; users without JavaScript will have to accept that the slideshow won't work, but you could use CSS to display all slideshow images (might break your layout though).

    Ok, right. Javascript is disabled in high level.
    But then, why is the menu on http://www.rrpauditores.cl working? It uses the menubar plugin, but that surely uses Javascript too, doesn't it?

    If you've disabled JavaScript and the menu works; then no, it is not using JavaScript, or has CSS back-up functionality.
