Nav bar missing in IE after CSS changes

    Hi guys,

    I only now just realised that my navigation bar is missing for anyone viewing in IE. I’ve made some CSS changes to my site to make it look more the way I want, but truth is I know nothing about CSS. I’ve basically found what I needed around the net and copied and pasted it into the editor. I believe I may have done something wrong along the way.

    Any help you have would be wonderful.
    I’ve noticed my page views are not as consistent, and this is probably why.

    I don’t have IE, so I can’t see the issue, but try adding this to the #menu rule you have in your custom CSS. Hopefully my guess is correct.

    z-index: 1000;


    Hi thesacredpath,

    Thanks so much for your suggestion. I added it to my #Menu rule, which looked like the following:

    #menu {
    position: absolute;
    width: 960px;
    top: 225px;
    text-align: center;
    z-index: 1000;

    Unfortunately I wasn’t successful, but I appreciate your help.


    If I had one of my Windoze laptops I could check it, but both of them are 1200 miles from where I am at this time. :(


    It’s ok! Please don’t stress, I appreciate your help. Ive checked the problem on my laptop which has the latest version of IE and there seems to be no issue, but my older laptop (Visa – ancient!) has an older IE and the nav bar is still missing.

    Fingers crossed a solution is discovered x


    Ah, yes on older versions of IE such as 8, 7 or 6, there would be problems. 6 and 7 are no longer supported on the web really because it they are so old. They don’t even show up in browser statistics anymore, and IE8 is disappearing quickly as well.


    I tested in IE8 and IE9 and I could see the main menu. I would encourage anyone using a browser older than IE8 to upgrade if at all possible because browsers that are that outdated are not supported.
