CSS Menu showing as text

CSS Menu showing as text

I have created a first page for a new site in CSS sculptor, based on a SuCasa template (Ideation) which is looking good. When I insert a new horizontal menu from CSS menuwriter it displays vertically as plain text both in Dreamweaver and when I preview the page in Safari 4, Firefox and Opera which is located on my hard drive.

I read about this issue on the FAQ's but I don't have any version of IE installed and all my other browsers are bang up to date.

check path


Do the links still work ?
if so check the style links at the top of your page, they may point to the wrong reference script.

Like this example below see where it points to, it should point to your CSSMenuWriter folder in your DW project then the name of your menu in that page eg cssmw1, 2, 3 and so on. The example below points to cssmw2 menu

Checkout all the paths.

<script type="text/javascript" src="../CSSMenuWriter/cssmw2/menu.js"></script>

CSS Menu as text - links

Russ - thanks for your help. I think it's clear that I lack the necessary understanding and have made a basic mistake in how the extension works.

I have been using CSS sculptor to create a page that will act as both a template and a dummy home page to show a client and I wanted to have a horizontal menu bar in place to demonstrate that single page. Providing he liked the design I would then make the rest of the pages.

From what you say would I be right in thinking that the menu bar will only display if there are active links already in place - ie the site would have to be more or less complete? Doesn't seem terribly wysiwyg.

Please excuse my fundamental ignorance.

Thanks again, Gil

He isn't talking about the paths specified as the links. He is talking about the paths to the .css and .js files. Those paths need to be correct. If you gave a sample URL we could tell you the exact problem.
