I’m in love with the newly crafted WordPress theme “twentyten.” The code is clean and the included functions are spot-on. So, I’ve decided to start making Child Themes based on twentyten. The one problem I would run into is in Internet Explorer 6. Now, I know that everyone hates it and that we all need to move on into the future.. but.. I have clients that I really need to continue support of that legacy browser. The problem that I encountered was with the drop down menu system. The code is so beautiful and perfect, but it just uses CSS… which IE6 can’t recognize. So I decided to write a plug in (with a bit of helpful advice from some awesome geniuses) that I can install whenever I make a child of twentyten and need it to support drop downs in IE6.

Here is the plugin php file: (if you don’t want to use it as a plugin.. just steal the jQuery)
Feel free to download and use and let me know if you encounter any bugs.
This probably won’t mean anything to you, but I wanted to document this for my reference. Here are some of the sites I visited when initially researching how to make this plug in. There are probably many more that I hit up in my research later on but I just thought I’d throw this in here considering it is on the same subject lines.
