trouble adding links that work on webserver to Menu navigation

I am building my site on and have the CSS Menu Writer on the template page. When I add a link to a menu item...example


The link then works fine when previewing the webpage on my local machine and the url looks like this


...which is what I want. But, when I post to my webserver and try the link it looks like this and does not work:


Why is the Menu Writer adding the site root folder to the url and how do I prevent this?

It gets the base path information from your dreamweaver site settings. It must be set wrong there. You can probably see the local and remote root paths set on the menu.php include page and update them manually to be correct.
