Possible New Page Creation Solution - Site Sculptor

Jason,

Thanks for the clarification. While you explained it quite well during our conversation, the admin section of the Site Sculptor has the end-user in mind, since all of us designing sites using the extension are using Dreamweaver. As you also stated, the documentation on creating pages in the help section is incorrect. Thanks for forwarding this issue to the documentation team.

I have found what I think is an elegant solution to this. Your answer below was very helpful in giving an understanding of what the extension is doing, and with some very minor code tweaks, we developers can get what we need in terms of non-menu page creation. The steps are simple:

(1). Find the folder "CSSMenuWriter". There are three subfolders that refer to navigation for the Admin, Home and Content pages. Ignore the Admin navigation folders.

(2). In the Home and Content menu folders, find the menu.php file.

(3). Find the files you made the templates editable (indicated by the green plus button).

(4). Add to the end of the file: ?menuHeader=\", where "menuHeader is the page name of your editable page. Using your example below, the PHP code would look like this:

<a href="<?php echo($assumedRoot); ?>directors.php?directors=\"">directors</a>

Since we are directly referencing the original page, it will never be superseded by newer pages. End-users can also link directly to created pages using the text editor. Other than that, end-users will probably have to keep track if they delete pages in the middle of a stack. The numbering system can be thrown out of whack for subsequently created pages.
