seperate menu page
Thanks for that, would that mean that I have to use .php for all my pages or just the template? What I want to do is create a couple of template designs to suit all the pages in the site but I need to be able to modify the menu in a single location and have that change replicated in every page in the site in the same way that css works, previously this was done by having an include page (via ms frontpage) for the header and footer which worked very well, but I am looking to start using Dreamweaver and css for the rewrite and the learning curve is huge and not helped by the 101 other things which require my attention during each day. I dont want to have to go back to the familiar territory of Frontpage.
I am also using css sculpture and am basing the site on the 3 column rounded corners style with the nautica theme and would ideally like to insert the bubble horizontal menu centrally within the base of the header with the code externally available in such a way that any menu change while editing any page will take immediate effect on every other page which has been created based on that template. Being 100% new to dreamweaver cs4 and to css I am afraid that I am still at the stage where I need step by step instruction for most things even though they may be obvious to those with even a little experience in these packages.
Thanks in advance for your help.
