Moving a menu

hello...

what is the best way to move a menu from one html page to another within the same site. I keep only getting bits and pieces of it when i try and file it folder by folder.

thanks

The best practice would be to add the menu to a Dreamweaver template, then create the pages from the template.

This way, if you change the menu on the template, the change will be made to all of the pages based on the template.

See the following for more information on using Dreamweaver templates:

template

Hi Jason,

Actually, that is where I'm trying to move it. I was making a test menu, I like it, but now I need to move it to the already existing template.

thanks,
esther

Send a copy of your page and I will tell what code needs to be copied to the template.

From t he head of the document, you need to copy the following:

html:
<script type="text/javascript" src="CSSMenuWriter/cssmw0/menu.js"></script>

<style type="text/css" media="all">

<!--[if lte IE 6]>
<style type="text/css" media="all">
@import url("CSSMenuWriter/cssm0/menu_ie.css");
</style>

<![endif]>
<!--[if lte IE 6]>
<style type="text/css" media="all">
@import url("CSSMenuWriter/cssm0/menu_ie.css");
</style>

<![endif]-->




since it is going into a template, you will need to adjust the paths:

html:
<script type="text/javascript" src="../CSSMenuWriter/cssmw0/menu.js"></script>

<style type="text/css" media="all">

<!--[if lte IE 6]>
<style type="text/css" media="all">
@import url("../CSSMenuWriter/cssm0/menu_ie.css");
</style>

<![endif]>
<!--[if lte IE 6]>
<style type="text/css" media="all">
@import url("../CSSMenuWriter/cssm0/menu_ie.css");
</style>

<![endif]-->



The copy the menu itself:

html:
<ul class="level-0" id="cssmw0">
<li><a href="index.html">Homepage</a></li>
<li><a href="bio.html">Biography</a></li>
<li><a href="#">Mission Statement</a></li>
<li><a href="services.html">Specialty Services</a></li>
<li><a href="contact.html">Contact Information</a></li>

</ul>
<script type="text/javascript">if(window.attachEvent) { window.attachEvent("onload", function() { cssmw0.intializeMenu('cssmw0',{select_current: 0, orientation: 2}); }); } else if(window.addEventListener) { window.addEventListener("load", function() { cssmw0.intializeMenu('cssmw0',{select_current: 0, orientation: 2}); }, true); }</script>
