Navigation not working

Navigation not working

I know this is not a problem with site sculptor and it is probably something I did wrong.

In dreamweaver the links are set up as relative to document and the site name is Parti Yorkies.

The host has the website folder as elvis-parti-yorkies.com so all my navigation contains
Parti Yorkies/filename.php. Since I don't have any folder parti yorkies on the remote site one can't find the file.

What did I do wrong and how should I correct it?

The url that is used by Site Sculptor is in your site definition in the testing server portion. You would want to change the URL Prefix for the testing server. Try that and see if the value is getting set correctly.

What did you change the site definition settings from and what did you change them to?

Could you elaborate on how the sites are not working?

If it is necessary, we'll get into a phone call, but as of now, its not at that stage yet.

changing the site definition is not the solution. Even if it worked it would still give and extra level in the address which is unacceptable. You will also have all the files that the original site description. I have two other sites and the site description has never been the same as the remote folder.

The server testing folder C:\program_files\wamp\www\Parti Yorkies\

The URL prefix is Parti Yorkies/

I changed them to

C:\program_files\wamp\www\elvis-parti-yorkies.com\ and

elvis-parti-yorkies.com/

Once I did this nothing worked because there are a number of files such menu.php
which still has rwmote route as Parti Yorkies

Bugs In Menu writer and site sculptor

Here are three threads with the same problem.

showthread.php?t=13609 6/7/10
showthread.php?t=12437 4/24/10
showthread.php?t=11850 4/6/10

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 doc...efinitions.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)
<?php
mysql_free_result($menuwriter_products);
?>

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?
