Dynamic Array creates a bad site layout display

Dynamic Array creates a bad site layout display

Hi, I have a little problem when I insert the dynamic array code in my page.
I had a centered layout for my web site and now everything is displayed at the left (???).
Is there a solution for it?

Thanx for your support.

There is an FAQ on the Dynamic Dropdowns Support page for this:
dynamic-dropdowns/

Q) Why is my layout incorrect after applying Dynamic Dropdowns?

A) The code inserted by Dynamic Dropdowns may have been placed outside (above) the <head> tag. Follow these steps to move the necessary code to the appropriate location:

1. In Dreamweaver, choose Code view.
2. From the Server Behaviors panel, select the Dynamic Array option.
3. Press Ctrl (Cmd) + X to cut the highlighted code from Code view.
4. Place your cursor below the <head> tag.
5. Press Ctrl (Cmd) + V to paste the code.

this also affects the working of the dynamic dropdown

I have a page that has this centering problem in IE8 but not in Firefox.

Also in IE8, the dynamic dropdown won't work and it gives a javascript error on a particular line number. I just reported this on a different thread about that error.

Anyway, when I try making the change suggested here for the centering problem (moving the array creation down below the head tag), I get a different javascript error on a different line, with a different behavior. Now, instead of the second menu not showing any items, it shows all items, not filtered by the first list. This behavior happens in both Firefox and IE.

The page after I move the array creation below the head tag can be found at
profile.ddtest.php. You'll have to login to get to it. You can use username and password both equal to newer. The page with the array code higher up is at profile.php. It shows the centering problem and the dynamic dropdown won't work at all.

Any help?

The dynamic array code on the profile.ddtest.php was not moved quite right. view source on the profile.php page and the dynamic array looks like:
