adding dynamic menu inside existing static menu

adding dynamic menu inside existing static menu

I currently have a static, multi-level menu, meaning the submenu selections are hard coded. I am trying to use the existing css in a menu. But I want the submenu to be a list from a database, thus making it dynamic. I have been trying to follow the steps in the help document "Getting Started With Dynamic Dropdowns". I have mySQLi and I am using dreamweaver 2014. I ran into a couple problems.

The instructions say to place my cursor where I want the dynamic menu to display and to go to insert/form/list-menu. When I place the cursor after the <ul> tag that is just before the <li> hard coded list, I tried to do the insert/form/list-menu insert, but the options inside the "form" part are all grayed out and I also do not see the "list/menu" selection.

What am I doing wrong? The site I am working on is and I am trying to make the sublist under inductees/category and inductees/year dynamic based on the data in the table for category and the data in the table for year.
