Editing menus after site created

Editing menus after site created

OK, I admit I occasionally have a bad case of stupid fingers.

I have noticed a couple of typo's in my menus but when I try to edit in SAP I get a bunch of pages that have a "0" appended to the name, and then have to delete them and fix all the links.

I also have CSS Menu Writer, but when I tried it all I got was an additional menu that was added to the top of the page above the existing one.

Where do I really want to edit my menu?

Thanks,

What is the version of SiteAssist Pro you are using and what OS and DW version are you working with?

Please post back with this info and also the specific steps you are taking that give you this result.

When you edit the structure of the site from within the wizard it should create the pages in the site based on what you have entered here including renaming of the pages. You should not need to do any updating after the fact to get the pages linked up correctly.

System Info

I am using SiteAssist Pro 1.0.6. on a Mac OS 10.5.8, Dreamweaver CS4

I started with an existing site and created new new site using SiteAssist Pro. I simply do not remember which site settings I started with, but the layout is Texture and the design is Slate.

After much work I moved the old data to new pages as structured in the SAP control panel. As we all know when you finish a project you start to see a few things to be fixed.

I went to the Modify site and made the edits and made my changes on steps 3 and 4. When I commit to the changes and the screens stop twitching everything is messed up. I have tried it with all three options on step 5 all with the same results. All I want to do is change a couple of typos on the menus and delete two items from the footer of the pages.

Using CSS Menu Writer 2.02 the pages seem OK, but it places a new drop down menu at the top of the page.

What am I doing wrong and how can I manage this little bit of editing without witnessing a train wreck every time I try it?

Thanks,

I have opened a ticket for you already from the other thread you responded to:

showthread.php?t=2750

When we figure out what is going on I will update that thread.

Still having problem editing menu

OK, this is a bit old, but I still can not edit a menu using CSS Menu Writer.

I am using DW CS6, Mac OSX 10.8.5 and Menu Writer 2.0.6.

It continually hangs and the only way I can cancel is to force quit DW.

I have been accessing MW from WA Site tools. Any idea what I am doing wrong?

Thanks,

Menu Writer 2.0.6 is not compatible with DW CS6.

The extensions that we offer that are compatible with DW CS6 are:
eCart5
Design Extender - Includes Menu Writer
Data Bridge
Free Tools

if you continue to use the stand alone version of menu writer, you will need to continue using the previous version of Dreamweaver.

If you wish to use Menu Writer in DW CS6, you will need to upgrade to Design Extender.
