Java error in wizard and CSS errors

Java error in wizard and CSS errors

Hi - Hope you can solve this one - I'm tearing my hair out!

(Running: iMac 3.06 GHz Intel Core Duo, OS X 10.5.8, Dreamweaver CS4 10.0.0 Build 4117)

I'm having major issues with Site Assist Extension 3.2.3. When creating a new site with it, I get a Javascript error when I try to rename the pages in the wizard (see java-error.jpg).

Also, when the site is created a lot of the CSS is not carried out. For example, if I specify the font as Arial, Helvetica, Sans serif - it displays a serf font (see finished_site.jpg). Also, the default images are not shown and I think the layout is wrong. The footer info also shows wrongly with 'undefined' after each link.

The path to the site is 'Macintosh HD/web sites/GH2'

I have uninstalled and re-installed the extensions many times, deleted the MacFileCache.dat file and re-installed numerous times and nothing seems to work. I've tried a previous carnation of Site Assist, but that too doesn't work at all. I've also reinstalled Dreamweaver.

For an extension to save time - it's turning into an extension to swallows time.

It definitely seems that there is a problem with your install. Since you have tried the cache file and re-installing doesn't work you should try renaming the configuration folder to see if that helps to resolve the problems. Here is a link to the steps to do this.

If the problem persists please let us know. Also, are you interacting with the interface using your mouse, or the keyboard, or a combination? I have seen some problems occur with the selection not being retained if you use the keyboard and the enter key to confirm selections. Please let us know how this goes for.

Java error and CSS still the same

Hi Eric

I renamed the Configuration file Configuration_back and uninstalled the Site Assist extension. After re-installing a fresh copy from the website all is exactly the same.
The 'gettreenode' java error appeared again - but I guess it is because I tried adding a Links page to the navigation. I think there is a clash because Site Assist automatically allows for a Links page in the footer section and presumably it doesn't like 2 pages with the same name. I had the same problem trying to create a page called Contact. When I then called it Contact Us - it was OK. I use the mouse to select the type to rename it and then hit return to OK it.

Hopefully that may be the reason for the Java error which I can sort of understand.

However the CSS is still all wrong. The fonts requested aren't used, the images don't appear and I still get 'undefined' after all the links in the footer.

Do you get this same result with the css and the footers if you use only the mouse to make your selections? I have opened a ticket for you on this issue, to check the status of your ticket or update it please login to the site and view your support history.

Having similar problem

Running: MacBook Pro 2.33 GHz Intel Core 2 Duo, OS X 10.5.8, Dreamweaver CS4 10.0.0 Build 4117, SiteAssist 3.2.3

Just installed SiteAssist again after upgrading from CS2 to CS4. Now whenever I use SiteAssist it creates the site successfully and uses the right color scheme. All of the specified pages are built. However, the following errors occur:

1. The navigation CSS file is built, but is blank, so the menus are not rendering properly. It does not matter what type of navigation is chosen.

2. The sitemap is undefined.

To troubleshoot I have uninstalled and reinstalled the extension, deleted the cache file and have created a brand new site to run the wizard.

Just for clarification have you also tried renaming the configuration folder to see if this helps get you past the problem? If you have not here is a link to the steps that you will need to take to do this. Please let us know about this and we can move forward from there.

Renamed the config folder as instructed, deleted site assist extension, reinstalled latest version, created new test site and tried running the wizard again. Got the same result. Navigation CSS is blank, font family choice ignored. Doesn't seem to matter what style is chosen. Hopefully someone can help with this soon -- my client is getting impatient.
