menu

I have created a site that uses menu writer www.cnccovky.com. the main menu items do not go to the correct pages. example: about us is pathed to aboutus.php. but when I click on the page this is not the about us page. I have checked the css and the menu writer wizard. Is there another location that controls path of the main menu items. All of the secondary menus work. Also the contact link and site links in the footer are doing the same thing.

Thanks Ronald

Hey Ron

In the site structure you should have a folder named CSSMenuWriter. In that folder you *should* have 3 folders:

Two of the folders are named as below, but you are looking to open the other one (its *probably* named cssmw).
1.cssmw_cms
2.cssmw_cms_images

In the other folder there will be a file named menu.php - its in this file that you will find the navigation points so that you can change what you need to do and then upload.

Hope that this helps

menu writer

I checked the menu.php file and ajusted the links, no effects to the pages. I also ran into another issue after making those change

Looks like you have edited the wrong menu.php - by the looks of it the one in the cssmw_cms which relates to the cms navigation rather than your front end website navigation.

What are the folder names In the folder CSSMenuWriter?

Ok, you would need to change menu.php in either cssmw_content or cssmw_home - I wouldn't be able to tell and just make the change, upload, test and check the live site.

To tell exactly which it is, you could look at one of the pages that you find the menu on and see which menu is referenced on it.

To get the cms menu system back you will need to revert the menu.php file you changed found in cssmw_cms

Well you could replace it with the below which is the code I have from a site I did some time ago. It *should* be fine.

<html>
<head>
<script type="text/javascript" src="../../CSSMenuWriter/cssmw/menu.js"></script>
<style type="text/css" media="all">
<!--
@import url("../../CSSMenuWriter/cssmw/menu.css");
-->
</style>
</head>
<body>
<ul class="level-0" id="cssmw">
<li><span><a href="../../admin_cms/index.php"><img src="../../images/menu-home.png" align="absmiddle" />Home</a></span></li>
<li><span><a href="../../admin_cms/activity.php"><img src="../../images/menu-activity.png" align="absmiddle" />Activity</a></span></li>
<?php if(WA_Auth_RulePasses("Super Administrator")){ // Begin Show Region ?>
<li><span><a href="../../admin_cms/settings.php"><img src="../../images/menu-settings.png" align="absmiddle" />Settings</a></span></li>
<?php } // End Show Region ?>
<li><span><a href="../../admin_cms/help.php"><img src="../../images/menu-help.png" align="absmiddle" />Help</a></span></li>
</ul>
<script type="text/javascript">if(window.attachEvent) { window.attachEvent("onload", function() { cssmw.intializeMenu('cssmw',{select_current: 1, orientation: 1}); }); } else if(window.addEventListener) { window.addEventListener("load", function() { cssmw.intializeMenu('cssmw',{select_current: 1, orientation: 1}); }, true); }</script>
</body>
</html>
