CSS Menu Writer 1.0.4 links don not work

This has probably been covered before, but here goes:

I have linked all of my links in the nav bar to go to separate pages inside the folder locally. For example, my index.html page is located in C:\Business\drBible\index.html

Menu writer adds a / in front which makes the Home page points to /index.html.


When I tried to preview the pages -- It previewed ONLY on the current page. When "Home" was clicked or other Nav Button were clicked it lost the preview and gave an error massage indicating that the page does not exist. The page exits, I know because I see it there. The links were made to the pages by clicking the "Folder" inside the CSS Menu Writer and then selecting the appropriate page to link to.

CSS Menu Writer is 1.0.4

This occured on both DW 8.0.2 and DW CS4 and I am running Vista OS on My Laptop.

This is what I found out:

When the menu button is clicked -- it seems to be looking for the pages on the C:\ instead of the full path where the pages are located. This is why it gives the error messa "can not find 'File:///C:/doctorBible.html'" This leads me to believe that it is looking for the page in the wrong path. The correct path is: C:\Business\drBible\index.html

I think that there is a bug in this Menu Writer. This is the reason why. When I went to the code: I changed
<a href="/doctorBible.html">Doctor's Profile</a> to <a href="./doctorBible.html">Doctor's Profile</a> and it worked. I could make it work correctly from the code, but doing it like that will defeat the purpose of buying Menu Writer.

I will like to know if others have had similar issues?


Many thanks,

Michael
