Can't find how to edit CSS menu in Dreamweaver CC

Can't find how to edit CSS menu in Dreamweaver CC

After inserting a CSS menu in Dreamweaver, the size of the menu is too much and I need to bring it down so it will fit correctly. But, I can't find how to edit the menu in CC. I've enabled Invisible Elements and in Preferences, I've enabled script elements but nothing's showing up. How can I do this?

And also, a little side from this. My webpage is 961px wide, and my menu is only 320px yet it's large enough that it squeezes down onto two rows. What's the difference here?

is it a php page or a static html page?

if it is a php page, you just need to select the menu to trigger the edit option in the property inspector.

as for the size difference, i would need to see the issue in the browser to tell the problem.

Hey Jason, thanks for your reply.

This page in particular is a static HTML 5 page with other PHP pages being added later.

I've uploaded the page to a testing server for you to see and can be found here: http://abrasives.whowantsfun.com/index.html

I just had a thought, when I told the CSS builder it to be 320px wide, could that have meant individual buttons or the whole bar?

Thanks.

your page is misising the menu script tag.


add the following just after the closing </ul> tag of the menu:

<script type="text/javascript">if(window.attachEvent) { window.attachEvent("onload", function() { cssmw.intializeMenu('cssmw1',{select_current: 0, orientation: 1}); }); } else if(window.addEventListener) { window.addEventListener("load", function() { cssmw.intializeMenu('cssmw1',{select_current: 0, orientation: 1}); }, true); }</script>




yes, on setting the width of 320px that would apply to each button. not the entire width of the menu.

Thanks a lot for that. It started showing the script tag but any form of clicking it doesn't bring up any menu and if I click edit at the bottom, it just opens a script properties box.

Ahh well that explains it then, at least I now know what happened.

Im not able to reproduce this.

what OS are you on? maybe it is an OS dependent problem.

I'm running Windows 7. I've never had this problem before I upgraded to Dreamweaver CC so perhaps it's that

Hey, thanks for this but it seems to have fixed now. I deleted the menu and started again and it worked fine. I guess the data-writing just got corrupted somehow.

Thanks again for your help.
