Menu code in a Dreamweaver Template...

Menu code in a Dreamweaver Template...

Hi Gang:

I've been using the CSS MenuWriter code in several websites with great success for some time but today I hit a proverbial wall in a DWT file. the menu is appearing on the pages from the template as an unordered list, indicating that the CSS link which works on the index.php page is not working in the template. Here's the code in question:

<style type="text/css" media="all">
<!--
@import url("CSSMenuWriter/cssmw3/menu.css");
@import url("CSSMenuWriter/cssmw4/menu.css");
-->
</style>

(there are two menus on the page)
What appears to be happening is the css links are not connecting to enable the menu to display properly. I've tried using ../ and / before the CSSMenuWriter... references with no luck. Any ideas what I'm doing wrong here?

Thanks as always!

enthusiastically,
mh

hard to tell what is wrong without seeing it in a browser, can you send a link to your template file so i can investigate the cause.

Hi Jason.

I've got it on one of my internal servers now and I've sent you an email (I hope I remember the format) so you can take a look at it.

Thanks as always!

Mark -- what is the folder structure for your site? Is the Template folder in the main site folder??

The template is in the templates subfolder under the site root.

I went into the editable region in the <head> of each of the files generated from the template and placed the code:

<style type="text/css" media="all">
<!--
@import url("CSSMenuWriter/cssmw3/menu.css");
@import url("CSSMenuWriter/cssmw4/menu.css");
-->
</style>
<!--[if lte IE 6]>
<style type="text/css" media="all">
@import url("CSSMenuWriter/cssmw3/menu_ie.css");
@import url("CSSMenuWriter/cssmw4/menu_ie.css");
</style>
<![endif]-->

Now the menus work - I'm curious as to why Dreamweaver did not include the required code in the <head>...</head> region.

enthusiastically,

Is the template a PHP template, or HTML? I'm just guessing, but there may be a disconnect somewhere along those lines. One thing I like about Menu writer, is that when you apply a menu to. PHP page, the actual list is in the form of a PHP include.
