How to re-enter the wizard to change the menu?

How to re-enter the wizard to change the menu?

I created my first menu last night, and need to modify it.

The Getting Started Guide says, "You can reenter the CSS Menu Writer wizard easily after you have created your menu."

Am I missing something? It says that it's easy, but doesn't say how. There is a picture after it, but I can't find how to get to that picture.

I tried changing the "invisible" options, and that got the little script icon to show up in the display. But all clicking it does is highlight the javascript in the code section.

When I go back to the Insert menu--which is how I got it there to begin with--it inserts a second menu.

Thanks in advance.

On a page with a menu, select the menu includes code,

eg <?php require_once("CSSMenuWriter/cssmw0/menu.php"); ?>

the CSSMW options should appear in the properties window, as shown in the image.

This is interesting - I am in the process of inserting a menu into a page I created with CSS Sculptor, but it's an HTML page and doesn't use the PHP include.

I saved the page as PHP and it allows me to choose the menu in the site, and inserts the include code - but there is no menu.php file - so therefore, no menu.

Do I have to create a new pre-set now? And will menu writer know to create menu.php since I am now working within a PHP page?

Also, does the editing function shown in the screen-shot shown above also allow you to re-save the preset after editing?

From what I can recall, if you create a CSSMW menu in an html page, the menu is written directly into the page code in a <ul></ul> block, along with some javascript and css.

If you add a CSSMW to a php page, it writes the menu into a separate php file and puts an includes statement in your php page

If you re-renter the wizard, you can (and should) save the category and theme as a new preset.

Yep, that's exactly what happens - been doing some experimenting. Thanks for the confirmation.
