i have another thread for css and js copies
i have another thread started for this issue, but to answer your questions, i think that i am following your advice. once i create a menu with menu writer 2 it attaches css and js to my template. when i go back in to edit theme it is adding two more files. i click on them and my template is unable to access the files - it appears that the path is incorrect. i have been deleting the unnecessary code for now. i have been editing some of the css manually to save time.
