error msg: In file "wamv_content"';WA not defined

Hello. I have a recurring CSSMenuWriter problem that follows me from original menu (eg. cssmw/menu.php) to recreated menus (eg. cssmw10/menu.php).

when I create a new menu it works. but when I come back and try to edit the same (working) menu and click on "Edit Contents" and then click on one of the buttons, like 'HOME', to change it, I get this error message:

while executing onChange in wamv_content.htm the following JavaScript error(s) occurred:

In file "wamv_content"';
WA not defined

I can't seem to fix this problem except by recreating the menu from scratch. Then at some point the 'WA not defined' error comes back and I can't edit the content of the recreated menu. This recurring problem follows me from pc to pc and browser to browser and prevents me from editing once-working menus.

someone else must have seen this problem before. what's the fix?
thank you for your time. david

ps. once I get the fix, how do you go about cleaning up the non-working or no-longer-used menu folders? If I have 10 or so folders ('cssmw-cssmw10') and 9 of them don't work properly, when I finally get the menu I want to work, can I erase the nine non-working folders?

For example, if I'm finish the day with only 'cssmw10' working, can I erase the 'cssmw-cssmw9' folders from the CSSMenuWriter folder and rename 'cssmw10' to 'cssmw' so I only have one (working) folder left? I don't want to have non-working menu folders lasting forever in the site files.

Try deleting the winfilecache. Here's a thread that explains how to do this:

You can delete the folders for the menus that you are not working to your specification. Renaming the last folder to "cssmw" is not as simple as just renaming it. You will have to change all the links and references to the menu as well. If you just delete the other folders you should be in good shape.
