Menu still not appearing in IE7+

Menu still not appearing in IE7+

I followed the FAQ instructions about coding for HTML 4.01 Transitional for all pages where the CSS menu has been inserted. This worked on only one page. The rest still show only text.

Here's an example of code from a page based on the template where I added that coding - and it does NOT work:

<!-- InstanceBegin template="/Templates/siteassistpro_template.dwt.cfm" codeOutsideHTMLIsLocked="false" --><!DOCTYPE HTML PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD HTML 4.01 Transitional//EN" "http://www.w3.org/TR/html4/loose.dtd"><head>

The page that works fine now shows this code:

<!DOCTYPE HTML PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD HTML 4.01 Transitional//EN" "http://www.w3.org/TR/html4/loose.dtd"><head>
<meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=utf-8">

Any idea of what to do now?

One the works: http://www.richardsssccc.com/index.cfm
One that does not: documents.cfm

the comment before the doc type tag:
<!-- InstanceBegin template="/Templates/siteassistpro_template.dwt.cfm" codeOutsideHTMLIsLocked="false" -->


causes IE to use quirks moe.


for ie to function properly, the very first tag must be the doctype tag,

<!-- InstanceBegin template="/Templates/siteassistpro_template.dwt.cfm" codeOutsideHTMLIsLocked="false" --><!DOCTYPE HTML PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD HTML 4.01 Transitional//EN" "http://www.w3.org/TR/html4/loose.dtd"><head>
<meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=utf-8">



should be changed to:

<!DOCTYPE HTML PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD HTML 4.01 Transitional//EN" "http://www.w3.org/TR/html4/loose.dtd"><head>
<meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=utf-8"><!-- InstanceBegin template="/Templates/siteassistpro_template.dwt.cfm" codeOutsideHTMLIsLocked="false" -->



you probably need to change this in the template as well.

I already changed it in the template. And in the template, that line appears at the very top of the file. Yet, when it updates the files based on it, it puts it below the other code, as I show in my initial post.

How do I get all 230+ of these pages to update properly? This site was created using SiteAssist Pro.. and we're basing virtually all pages off the template in DW.

I am not able to reproduce the issue.


make sure that all of your site files are closed in Dreamweaver, then open the template file.

With the template file open, go to Modify -> Templates -> Update pages


make sure Entire Site is selected for Look In. and Templates is checked in the update section.


Check Show Log to see a log of all the pages that are updated.

Did everything you suggested. It shows no files modified out of all that were checked.

So I removed the coding.. redid the update to all template-based files. It removed the coding. Then I re-applied the coding and updated all files (all were in fact updated per the log) and still the same issue. It inserts that code immediately after it's own tag in all the files based on the template.
