Design Extender 1.0.1 -MenuWriter Bug

:eek:Just installed Design Extender 1.0.1 and have the following problem.

First selection of a menu option works fine. All subsequent selections fail with same symptom.

Example. if i select Services or any other top level menu option, I go to the correct page, but after going to a submenu option and then try to return to home from Services/ Service 1 I get a 404 error because the menu tree points to /services/index.php instead of /index.php

Menu tree as follows

Home - Index.php-->
Services /Services.php-->
Services/Services 1

return to home should point to: /index.php however the menutree points to: /services/index.php

same for ALL subsequent menu tree choices. the 2nd level of the tree is not being cleared.

These are the generated lines in menu.php

<li class="parent"><a href="<?php echo($assumedRoot); ?>gallery.php">Gallery</a>
<ul class="level-1">
<li class="parent"><a href="<?php echo($assumedRoot); ?>gallery/category1.php">Category 1</a>
<ul class="level-2">
<li><a href="<?php echo($assumedRoot); ?>gallery/category1/portfolio1a.php">Portfolio 1a</a></li>
<li><a href="<?php echo($assumedRoot); ?>gallery/category1/portfolio1b.php">Portfolio 1b</a></li>
<li><a href="<?php echo($assumedRoot); ?>gallery/category1/portfolio1c.php">Portfolio 1c</a></li>
<li><a href="<?php echo($assumedRoot); ?>gallery/category1/portfolio1d.php">Portfolio 1d</a></li>
<li><a href="<?php echo($assumedRoot); ?>gallery/category1/portfolio1e.php">Portfolio 1e</a></li>
<li class="parent"><a href="<?php echo($assumedRoot); ?>gallery/category2.php">Category 2 </a>
<ul class="level-2">
<li><a href="<?php echo($assumedRoot); ?>gallery/category2/faq.php">FAQ</a></li>
<li><a href="<?php echo($assumedRoot); ?>gallery/category2/privacypolicy.php">Privacy Policy</a></li>
<li><a href="<?php echo($assumedRoot); ?>gallery/category2/termsconditions.php">Terms & Conditions</a></li>
<li><a href="<?php echo($assumedRoot); ?>gallery/category2/portfolio2d.php">Portfolio 2d</a></li>
<li><a href="<?php echo($assumedRoot); ?>gallery/category2/portfolio2e.php">Portfolio 2e</a></li>
<li class="parent"><a href="<?php echo($assumedRoot); ?>services.php">Services</a>
<ul class="level-1">
<li><a href="<?php echo($assumedRoot); ?>services/service1.php">Service 1</a></li>
<li><a href="<?php echo($assumedRoot); ?>services/service2.php">Service 2</a></li>
<li><a href="<?php echo($assumedRoot); ?>services/service3.php">Service 3</a></li>
<li><a href="<?php echo($assumedRoot); ?>services/service4.php">Service 4</a></li>
<li><a href="<?php echo($assumedRoot); ?>services/service5.php">Service 5</a></li>
<li><a href="<?php echo($assumedRoot); ?>services/feeschedule.php">Fee Schedule</a></li>

Note that the "services/" is correct, but the menu system is adding /services/ to make it /services/services/*.php

This sounds like an issue we tried to fix from 1.0.... 1.01 shouldn't use $assumedRoot at all any more.

Are you sure you edited the menu with 1.0.1 and uploaded the menu.php file?

I'll open a support incident so we can look into this for you, but this code doesn't look like the most recent version should.

note changes to initial error explaination

Hi Ray.

Please disregard this topic. I confused the "csmu_home" menu.php with the "csmw_content" menu.php.

At least that is what I think I did.

I have it working OK now.

Forgive the bonehead error please...

By the way, this release is MUCH better than others that I have seen come out, and even though it is all previously released tools, the integration is a great help. THANK YOU.
