No Script Tag to Edit Menu

No Script Tag to Edit Menu

Maybe it is just me but after installing Menu Writer and trying to follow the instructions in the accompanying pdf something is wrong. I created a menu and it obviously had issues, so i tried to "reenter the wizard". I followed directions: "Click once to select your navigation menu on your page. HTML users will need to select the script icon beside the menu." There is no icon beside the menu. No wizard box opens.

So going into the css I can find no way to vary the widths of the top level, parent, menu items nor the second level items, level-1.

Exactly how is this suppose to work properly?

To get the script tag to show up, you will have to go to Dreamweaver Preferences and click on the invisible elements section. Make sure the checkbox next to scripts is checked. Then you will have to see the menu in either split or design view and the yellow script tag should be next to the menu. Then you should click on that script tag and in the properties inspector there should be buttons to allow you to edit.

What were the issues that the menu was having when you applied it the first time?

responding to question about menu problems

I turned on the invisible elements item you suggested. This revealed the icon.

As far as the main issues. I can see now way to vary the widths of a level of the menus. Right now each menu is set to 100px width for every item on that level. I need them to vary because they are not balanced and some are spilling over. menus_wa_1.html

I know I can have the size menu that I want by controlling the elements within, but is there a way to establish a overall size that will be maintained?

Thank you.

no, the menu writer wizard does not allow to set a specific width for each menu item.

this need to be done outside of the menu writer wizard by adding an inline width style to the menu items to override the menu writer css.


for example, to change the width of the home element. change:
<li><a href="index.htm">HOME</a></li>


to:
<li><a href="index.htm" style="width:50px;">HOME</a></li>
