I recently went through an upgrade process of my company's forum site from version 4.8.4 to 5.4.4.  The upgrade process went smoothly, but for some reason I am getting a strange problem with the menu bar that I am only experiencing on the IE browser (see image).

The other browsers (Chrome and Safari) do not have this problem and they look like they are supposed to (see below).

I've been digging through the inspect element and don't see any major differences between the two browsers.  Can anyone help?  The site is amtweb.amtechsoftware.net if you want to see it for yourself.

Thanks in advance for any help.

Also, if you're upgrading DNN, you really should upgrade all the way to DNN7 or DNN8, not 5.4.

Your skin is likely using a menu that has javascript issues with IE, so you might look at changing out the Menu you're using in the skin, or upgrading the skin as well.

There are currently bad "link" tags in your HTML of that page, likely causing CSS loading issues, that might be impacting only IE and not other browsers perhaps.

Sorry about images not being included, but thanks for the help anyway. I hear you on upgrading all the way to 8.  That was my plan, but the higher the upgrade went, the more issues I had with the website. For instance, the login page didn't display anything after going to 7.x in my sandbox area,  but that's a different issue.

The eventual plan is to migrate to a different site for the forum we currently use it for by starting from scratch, so the idea was to upgrade this site as much as possible now to get it stable, then migrate to the new site late this year.

You mentioned the bad link tags in my HTML of this page.  Where are these bad link tags and where is the html file located that I can edit to fix them?
