CSS Menu Writer 2.0.3

Here is the problem that I am having. I am trying to apply the same CSS Menu to the same website. The majority of the pages of the site are located NOT in the webroot. They are located in the directory called Business. Only Contact Us form is located in the webroot.

On the main Home Page I pointed to the Contact Us form by using the complete hosting server path e.g href="http://..."> and

On the main Contact Us page I pointed to the Home Page by using the complete hosting server path e.g href="http://...">

They both load -- but when the Home Page is loaded it indicated Contact Us page as "current" by the color that I have assigned for current. When the Contact Us Form is loaded both the Home Page and the Contact Us page are showing as current. I know that if I have put all the files in the webroot -- everything will work fine or if I did not need any server side -- everything also will work well.

Q1: How do I make sure that only one page is shown as current?

Q2: How do I apply the same CSS Menu Write in a diferent environment?


I just find out now that the Contact Us page is not loading properly, it is like it is not even seeing the menu.css. When I tested yesterday it loaded fine -- why would it load correctly yesterday and loaded different today??? Or could it just be my work place network that is not allowing server side to load correctly???

The current page selection should be based on the name of the page you are on and the value of the link in the menu, if they match it should show as the same page. When I look at your contact page it seems that the links to the resources are not matching up. This might be because relative links are used. You will need to ensure that all of the css and js that are linked to on the page are accessible in the location they are referenced.

It is best to apply Menu Writer on the end page that it will be used on, the paths that are created at that time should match the location of the pages in question.
