Menu does not display on Server, local dreamweaver ok...

I uploaded all the files and even renamed my other CSS file and the menu still displays as a list in IE and Firefox.

Can someone please take a look at my test site:

xxxxxx/

In IE I see the page has this error:

***********************
Webpage error details

User Agent: Mozilla/4.0 (compatible; MSIE 8.0; Windows NT 6.0; Trident/4.0; Mozilla/4.0 (compatible; MSIE 6.0; Windows NT 5.1; SV1) ; SLCC1; .NET CLR 2.0.50727; .NET CLR 3.0.30729; .NET CLR 3.5.30729; .NET4.0C)

Message: Object doesn't support this property or method

Any help would be greatly appreciated!

In the page you have linked to, I don't see a link to your menu.css. Also, you don't appear to have the CSSMenuWriter folder and files on your server (at least, not where I would expect to see them).

When you apply a CSSMenuWriter menu to a page, it will create the CSSMenuWriter folder and its contents in the root directory of your site, and insert the appropriate links (css and and include to the menu.php file) into your page(s). As your page is an .html page, there would be no include (the code is written directly to your html page), but the links would be placed in the head section.

I would remove the existing menu, run the extension again in either your template or the page you wish the menu to be applied to, and then upload the page and all of the folder/files generated by the extension.

The actual fault (I believe) is caused by the javascript (below the menu lines on your page) referring to functions it can't find because the link to CSSMenuWriter javascript:

<script type="text/javascript" src="CSSMenuWriter/cssmw/menu.js"></script>

doesn't exist in the head section of your page. I think.

Neilo, once you told me the Javascript reference was not showing up I took a look at the code in the template and the scripts were being put in the wrong spot. The code was being put within an editable Head region...once I moved it out of there all worked fine.

Thanks!!

Nice one! Glad you got it going.

Dreamweaver is great, but you do still have to keep an eye on what it's doing with your code (I find).
