Menu drop--down problem

I have just upgraded to the latest mojoPortal on my sites (www.ropley.com and www.shapinsayschool.org) and found that the drop down menus just no longer work. No drop downs appear in each of the browsers I have tried (Chrome, IE). I've been using the jquery-ui theme because many of the artiseer 31 styles I have installed have two badly positioned overlaid static menus that are hard to read.

Is there some obvious thing I am doing wrong with the site's configuration? I've not customised the menus at all, so they are still in their default form. I searched the mojoPortal site to see if anybody else has this problem, but I have not been able to find any posts on this issue. At present the sites have to be navigated via the site map!

OS = Windows Server 2k3

DB = SQL Srvr 2k5

mojoPortal v 2.3.9.8

.NET 3.5

To produce problem: navigate to either http://www.ropley.com/ or http://www.shapinsayschool.org/ and try using the top menu.

Many thanks - Sean

Re: Menu drop--down problem

One quick thing you can check: In layout.master look at the <portal:StyleSheetCombiner declaration and make sure that JQueryUIThemeName is not set to "base". They eliminated "base" in a recent version, and the new default JQueryUI theme is "smoothness".

I hope that helps,

Jamie

Re: Menu drop--down problem

Hi Sean,

If you use web browser tools and look in the javascript console you will see there are script errors happening on the page. It is because you have some older jquery code that is not compatible with the newer version of jquery linked in the new version of mojoPortal.

You need to enable the jQuery Migrate plugin and apply any other needed changes listed on our Important Skin Changes article based on what version you upgraded from.

Hope that helps,

Joe

Re: Menu drop--down problem

Thanks gents - these were really helpful comments. I had avoided the base theme from JqueryUI, but had not done the migration tag as Joe suggested. Applied that and it now works beautifully again! Thanks again - Sean
