Thanks for responding neo. Here are some feedback from me:
1. This is not a problem isolated to the few users that have written on this forum. It is a challenge for everyone who has made sites with these templates (that are excellent in all other ways).
When a percentage of us experience these problems, will also a percentage of the readers/customers experience this problems regardless if the developer experience problems on his own pc .
2. The challenge is: For some users, using ie8 and ie7, the submenu will be impossible to reach because it always shows up to the left at the page and not under the parent menu item in the horizontal menu.
(When you have a parent menu item to the right in the horizontal menu it is impossible to reach the submenu because when you move the cursor in that direction the submenu will disappear when the cursor leaves the parent menu item ...)
3. For me and the other people who have commented this, this can be solved by using Google Chrome or upgrade to IE9. That's peace of cake.
But it still remains that for all of us (also Youjoomla) will a percentage of the readers and customers not be able to navigate on our sites. This The percentage is maybe very low, but it is hard to know.
4. The technical part:
a) The problems occurs regardless of Joomlaversion (1.5-1.7 etc) and regardless of Youjoomlatemplate and regardless if it is me who have established the site or if it is others, like Youjoomlas own demos. (Even on the demo of your newest one – You Fact - the promlem occurs when i visit http://joomla1.5.youjoomla.info/youfact/
b) I meet the problem on a pc using IE8.
Windows Vista Home Premium with service pack 2
RAM 4 GB
And again: It's no point fixing my computers setting. I am normally not using IE8. I use Google Chrome for everything, and there are everything working just fine. The question and challenge is, how many of our users experience this problem?
