CSS Menu Writer not displaying "current" state

CSS Menu Writer not displaying "current" state

My menu is not displaying a "current" state, even though I have edited the CSS to make the "current" menu stand out. I am using a combination of static and database driven menus, so I'm not sure how to make this happen.

It's not live anywhere. Give me a bit and I'll find somewhere to put it. I'll also have to create the DB on the server, so it's going to take a little while...

Ok, once you have it uploaded, I will be able to take a look to see why the currant highlighting is not working.

I've uploaded the pages to the server, but I'm getting a strange error message.

main.php

It's giving me the following error:

Warning: require_once(../Connections/dynamo.php) [function.require-once]: failed to open stream: No such file or directory in /home/content/69/6124769/html/dynamenus/CSSMenuWriter/cssmw0/menu.php on line 24

Fatal error: require_once() [function.require]: Failed opening required '../Connections/dynamo.php' (include_path='.:/usr/local/php5/lib/php') in /home/content/69/6124769/html/dynamenus/CSSMenuWriter/cssmw0/menu.php on line 24

What's being refrenced in this line of code is the connection string. It should be okay, but I'll double-check.

Jason, I found a post that is documenting exactly what I'm experiencing: showthread.php?t=14307&highlight=connection

I'm not able to fix this. Can you help? Sheesh ... one issue leads to another!

in the menu.php file, the require_once line for the connection needs to be edited.

It looks like line 24 is:
require_once("../Connections/dynamo.php")

and should be changed to:
require_once("../../../Connections/dynamo.php")

That worked, but now I'm getting a parse error online 27.

Here's the whole block of code:

<?php
// MenuWriter connection includes
require_once("../../../Connections/dynamo.php")
// end connection includes
// MenuWriter ignore connection includes
if (1 == 0) {
?>

Jason, I forgot the semi-colon, but that didn't solve the problem. It still can't find the connection string.

sorry, looks like it only needs to go down 2 levels,:
require_once("../../Connections/dynamo.php");
