Everything worked perfect until IE11. Now the Pull Down menu doesn't work anymore. Firefox, Safari, Chrome work fine, IE11 in compatibility mode, too.

Any idea to get it work again?

It's a Joomla 1.0.5 Website.

Thank you in advance

That should fix any opera 11 and IE9 issues.

If you want to upgrade then you probably need to do a manual upgrade in your case.

Download the latest swMenuFree file for your version of Joomla.  Unzip it and upload all the contents from the admin folder to your sites /administrator/components/com_swmenufree folder.  Overwrite the existinf files.  Then make sure the root joomla /modules folder is writable and go to the swMenuFree "upgrade/repair page" in the admin.

swMenuFree should then automatically update its module and database without losing any style settings.

running Joomla 1.5.23 and having problems with drop down menu not showing up in IE9 (menu is visible but no hover drop down). Using actually swmenu free 4.6 and tried to upgrade to 6.1, hope it will solve the problem.... but going to swmenu upgrade/repair and trying to upload the zip archive does nothing.
Direct update isn't possible? How else to update without losing data? And someone can confirm the IE9 bug is solved?

I made an Horizontal menue that slides up, it's on the Footer position (i created that position because my template didn't have it)
When using Trans Menu the submenue positions are
not ok, they show up in diferent positions of the screen. Also, under my menu I do get the same menue again.

I read another post and they said that i have to unpublish the second menue module, but i just have 1 module published in that position  :-\ , so that solution doesn't work for me.
What else can i do?
I'll aprecite any help!!

I'm having the same issue. It works fine on FF but it does not in IE and some versions of Opera. This has worked for months but now that I changed the menu position from left to right, the submenus are showing way too far to the top.

I've tried changind the CSS Position atribute to relative, static, absolute, but it is not working. It works fine in the preview from the administrator panel but not in the web page with the template.

Has anyone found a solution?

It tells me the install is complete but then tells me: Module Status: Could Not Install swMenuFree Module.

So, then I go to the upgrade/repair and get this message: Warning: file_get_contents(/var/www/vhosts/ [function.file-get-contents]: failed to open stream: No such file or directory in /var/www/vhosts/ on line 1082

Fatal error: Cannot break/continue 1 level in /var/www/vhosts/ on line 1193

Any advice? I'm not terribly technical so have tried a few things but not getting anywhere. Thanks.

Without any clear reason the position of all submenu's has changed to exactly the top of the window instead of right of the item in the main menu.
It worked fine for months. I don't now what happened. Looked at the configuration. No offset setings or something.
Anyone an idea what's wrong?
