Can't install Buttin Styler in CS4

Hi your website says I can install the button styler in Dreamweaver CS4 and CS5, but when I tried to install it, it said I had to have CS5.

I would also like to know whether I can use the styler for non-form buttons, e.g. Specials ?

And how do you change the text from Submit to something else?

are you double clicking the mxp file to start the install?

if so try starting the install manually:

In Dreamweaver, go to Commands -> Manage Extensions to open the extesnion manager.

Once the extesnion manager is open, close Dreamweaver.

In the extesnion manager, click the install New extesnion icon. In the Finder Window, browse to the MXP File you downloaded and select it to begin the installation.


Button styler will only work with Form button elements.

to change the text from submit to something elese, edit the buttons Value attribute, for example the code for a submit button may look like this:

<input type="submit" name="btnSubmit" id="btnSubmit" value="Submit" alt="Submit" />


changing the value:
value="Submit"


will change the text shown in the browser.

I am getting a similar problem
When I try to install via Adobe extension manager I get the error
The extension requires Dreamweaver 10 or greater.

I have DW 9 CS3

Can I install the extension somehow?

Thanks

John

CSS Button Styler is not compatible with Dreamweaver CS3, it is compatible with Dreamweaver CS4 and CS5.x

Thanks Jason
Is there an older version of Button Styler which may be used?

Are there any other WA extensions which are not compatible with cs3?

no, there is not an older version that will work with CS3.

Any new extensions that are released will be compatible with CS4 and CS5.x only.

you can view the system requirements on the product detail page for any of the products to see what OS they are compatible with:

The item description says nothing about this being limited to just form buttons. I bought this thinking I could use it to design regular buttons to be used for anything I wanted to link to. You need to have the description specifically mention that this is a form button builder only, so other do not buy it thinking it is something else.

one work around would be to make your links into buttons, for example:

<a href="index.html"><input type="button" value="Home" /></a>





another work around would be to use the onClick event to make the button go to another page:

<input type="button" value="Home" onclick="location.href='index.html'">
