Where are the cool templates? Where is the flash?

  After getting blindsided by a client who showed me some awesome templates for Wordpress I started looking around more and wondering where are all of the great templates for a Dreamweaver applications? Why is there no Flash in any of the templates provided by WebAssist? In addition, how do I achieve some of the features shown on the WebAssist web site itself? The menu system doesn't look like anything I could make easily with CSS Menu Writer. What about the "accordion" type items that appear in each FAQ section??? How do I make something like that.




Have you ever checked into either JQuery or Moo Tools? Both are pretty awesome javascript / ajax frameworks. With those, many developers have written scripts which is under the GPU license that you can use in conjunction with those frameworks to achieve all the things you're talking about. What's even cooler is that most of the scripts give excellent step by step instructions for how to integrate into your site. Just do a search for anything you may want like "JQuery Photo Gallery"... or "JQuery Accordian" and see what pops up. You'll be pleasantly surprised with all the options. As a guy who has also developed themes for WordPress, Joomla, and RapidWeaver; I can tell you that most of the templates you see do include the very same scripts that ride on JQuery or Moo Tools.

As far as the menu on the Web Assist site, it is possible to do that with CSS Menu Writer... but you will need to get the basic part of the menu done first and then customized the html in the various lists. In fact, I am working on a site for a radio station that was inspired by the WebAssist site and I have been able to make the menu do exactly the same thing and look nearly identical just with WebAssist tools.
