Bugs in Menu Writer
Here are three threads with the same problem.
Menu writer uses the Http address on the local info portion in dreamweaver site definition to populate the variable $WA_remoteRoot in the menu.php file that is created by menu writer.
If you follow webassists directions on defining a site dynamic_site_definitions.php your local route folder might be something like this C:\program_files\wamp\www\Parti-Yorkies\ and your Http address would be something like Parti-Yorkies/.
If you set your site like this then menu writer will assign $WA_remoteRoot = 'Parti Yorkies'
When you go to upload you files to your remote server the menu will no longer work even tho it worked on your local host.
To get the menu to work you must go into the menu.php file and set $WA_remoteRoot= '/'.
It should be noted that THIS FIX WILL NOT WORK IF THE SITE WAS CREATED WITH SITE SCULPTOR.
Another Bug in menu writer is if you have two sub-menus that are dynamic.
The first dynamic menu is correct but the second dynamic menu isn't.
Menu writer frees the second data base before selecting the database.
To correct this one must edit the menu.php file.
the following code (as an example)
must be placed after the </ul>after the fetching of the items on the second menu.
This first bug has been reported on 4/6/10 that I'm aware of. Why hasn't webassist addressed the problem? This takes a customer a lot of time to track down the problem that is not my responsibility.
How long will it take to resolve the bug in menu writer when used with site sculptor?
