Horizontal Menu just posting as vertical bullet points

Horizontal Menu just posting as vertical bullet points

I bought Menu Writer last night and spent hours trying to create my first menu several different ways, in different templates and blank pages, and they all just display as long bullet lists, which push down the whole page until below the long list. (My menu has several sub-levels).

I have tried in IE8 and Firefox. Within Dreamweaver, it looks fine. (I see the top level buttons, in Midnight, which I selected. The lower-level buttons don't show up there.)


I also created several simple pages to test it. Here is an example, where I just used the basic HTML sample from Dreamweaver, and added a very simple menu with three items and simple format. Same issue. It's here:


I read the FAQ on Doctype needing to be 4.01 Transitional and fixed that, but no change.

Please help. Thanks.

I am new to CSS Menu Writer (last night) and almost as new to Dreamweaver (a week), though I have coded in html for years.

OK, after about six hours at the machine, I figured it out.

While reading a different forum, I saw the CSSMenuWriter folder discussed and realized I needed to upload it to my site. That solved it.

Could I suggest adding a line to the getting started guide to tell people this crucial step? I didn't even know there was a CSSMenuWriter folder. I've never written a javascript, and when I've used widgets before (such as in blogger), they were hosted at the app's site, I guess. Or they told me what to do.

Why leave one of the required steps out of the How To guide?
