How to Shorten/Expand Nav Strip Button Widths

WebAssist - SiteSculptor Techical Forum Notes

[posted February 15, 2011]

Dear Sirs:

Background: Working on Dell with/CS3/DW 9.0, Windows XP Pro system. Built with WebAssist/Site Assist. Purchased Site Sculptor {SS} last fall. Finding it frustrating and not user-friendly. Would like to master SS for many reasons.

2.15.11 Update

New Background: For website client of the moment, working with SS's "Simple, Consultant Professional" Template.

Jason, based on your last reply, I'm going into "Site Type > Define" first. I'm renaming, as appropriate, all the horizontal navigational buttons. {See SnagIt screen captures; very important; if you cannot see these PNG files, email me ASAP, and I'll send them directly to you.}

The first time I did all the renaming of the nav buttons, your software caused my system to lock up. I had to override CS3/DW 9, close it down, and unfortunately, lost all my work.

I came back again, using several unkind phrases in reference to your software. As you instructed Jason, I saved my "Site Type > Define" work as "PorcoSiteType1," reference this particular website client. And being scared that your software was going to lock up again, I did the "Site Type > Define" work in stages, continuing to hit "Finish."

But now your software has given me a new challenge.

Q. Where in your Wizard do I shorten/expand the WIDTHS of the main horizontal nav button images? {See my SnagIt images.}

Jason, please understand, that based on your previous snippets, I'm doing "Site Type > Define" {"PorcoSiteType1"} FIRST. I haven't gotten to "Theme-It" yet.

individual widths cannot be set for the menu buttons in the wizard

you will need to modify the menu code after the pages are created to add an inline style to the individual menu items to assign different widths.

for example, when the menu is created, the code for the menu item will look like:
<li><a href="index.php">Home Page</a></li>

you would need to add an inline style to a element to give it a unique width:
<li><a href="index.php" style="width: 80px;">Home Page</a></li>
