You will need this update for all "non-chrome" drop menu "Deluxe" models as well.

Does my menu need this update?
Any Allwebco template listed above purchased before June 3rd 2007 will need this update. To check your menu version: Open your menu.js and find this note at the top of this file "MENU VER 2.0 IE 7.0 COMPATIBLE". If you have this note you will need this update for IE 9.0. If your template includes a "menu.css" or a folder named "css" you will NOT need this update. This update is not required for any "chrome" or CSS drop menu template.

Update Step #1:
Make a backup copy of your menu.js. Open your menu.js in Notepad or any plain text editor. Copy and paste the following code near the top of your menu.js.

Step #2:
Find the following 3 lines in your menu.js about half way down and delete these 3 lines and ALL lines after this code all the way to the end of your menu.js

// ----------------------------------------------------------------
// YOU DO NOT NEED TO EDIT BELOW THIS LINE 2003 (or 2006) Allwebco Design
// ----------------------------------------------------------------

Be sure you remove the above lines and everything after these lines in your menu.js.

Step #3:
Select all the code below by clicking in the box below and right clicking and choosing "select all". Right click in the box again and choose "copy". All text should still be highlighted when you do this. In your menu.js choose "paste" to paste this code at the bottom of your menu.js.

Note: If you have an OSnine model do NOT use this code. Instead click here for OSnine menu code.

Step #4:
Test your template in as many browsers as you have available. You can download Firefox for testing as well.
