Drop down menu not working on internet explorer – please help!
Which version of IE? IE6 is not supported, but this should work in IE7-IE9.
If not, try disabling plugins to see if there is a plugin conflict. If disabling plugins makes the problem go away, then there is a plugin which is not compatible with whichever version of IE you are using.
Moved to Support. Please post in the correct section next time.
Just a quick question.
Once I have disabled a plugin are the effects immediately seen on my site (i.e. will i see the menu drop down work right away if it was that plugin causing the problem?) or do i have to clear my cookies / empty cache each time?

Similar issue as seen here: https://forum.graphene-theme.com/graphene-support/ie9-shows-only-shadows-for-nav-subs
You have position:relative on #header-menu-wrap. I think that some plugin inserted it, try disabling each plugin and see. You will see immediately if it’s plugin issue, but clearing cache is always good option 🙂Mod
Thank you Luko and Kenneth.
I have resolved the problem by
1. Going into the style.css of the graphene theme
2. Finding the below code (starting on line 601), deleted the word ‘relative’, saved the file.
/* Top level header menu, default state */
background: url(images/sprite_h.png) left -3px repeat-x #101010;
3. Cleared my cache
4. Dropdown menu visible again on internet explorer 🙂
Thanks for your help.

^ Don’t hack parent theme. Use a child theme instead.
Please help! My drop down menus have suddenly disappeared but it doesn’t matter what browser you are in. It must have to do with something else and I cannot determine the problem. I have cleared out everything and disable all plugins. Any other suggestions? Did I accidentally select something somewhere? I have been building this site for a couple of months now and one of the reason we picked Graphene was because of the menu options.
