'Current Page Only' doesn't work any more

'Current Page Only' doesn't work any more

In MenuWriter, I am unable to get the 'current page only' option to work. It worked the first time I ever used it but no more. I must have gone thru' the MW process so many times now I'm sure I could almost complete it with my eyes shut. Nothing I'm doing helps. What am I doing wrong - I can't figure it out. PLEASE give me some tips to put me back on the right path. I'd be extremely grateful believe me!

What happens when you set the property and then view the pages in a browser? Does anything get highlighted?

Do you have links set up for each of the menu items and are they exactly matching what the page is showing up in the browser when you click on the menu item?

Hi Jimmy

I believe I have done everything correctly in Menu Writer. When I view the page in a browser the hover state works but not current ie no page is highlighted.

Since posting I have discovered that I can make it work by manually inserting 2 classes in the html like this:-

<ul class="level-0" id="cssmw1">
<li class="current"><a href="index.html"class="current">home</a></li>

Why should I have to do this? The current state DID work the first time I tried it.

Also, please can you tell me - why does my css not validate just after I insert the menu using MenuWriter? I get this from the W3C Validator -

@import are not allowed after any valid statement other than @charset and @import. @import url("CSSMenuWriter/cssmw1/menu.css");

PLEASE HELP - in anticipation, Thanks!

Could you post up the page in question that is giving this validation error?

Also, as a test, could you try creating a new blank site and testing the current page only option on that site to see if that works? Are any of the other options for the highlight working as they are supposed to?

I'm having the exact same problem. I also have to manually enter the following

<ul class="level-0" id="cssmw1">
<li class="current"><a href="index.html" class="current">Home</a></li>

in order for the current state to be displayed when I load index.html.

The current state functionality is done with the javascript. It may be a bad javascript page reference causing the issue. Do you have a sample url?

Ray, this is only on my local PC for the time being. Should I send the javascript file to you?

I think it would be better to just wait until you have a url I can look at. Could you post it up temporarily somewhere so I can look?

Here it is - temporarily. It's very much a work in progress and only the first two links are valid at this point. It takes awhile to load because (temporarily) I'm using a huge PNG file for the background - so be patient, please :)

The code is as if you hadn't checked that option... I see:

<script type="text/javascript">if(window.attachEvent) { window.attachEvent("onload", function() { cssmw1.intializeMenu('cssmw1',{select_current: 0, orientation: 1}); }); } else if(window.addEventListener) { window.addEventListener("load", function() { cssmw1.intializeMenu('cssmw1',{select_current: 0, orientation: 1}); }, true); }</script>




I think you need to replace: select_current: 0 with select_current: 1

so it should be:

<script type="text/javascript">if(window.attachEvent) { window.attachEvent("onload", function() { cssmw1.intializeMenu('cssmw1',{select_current: 1, orientation: 1}); }); } else if(window.addEventListener) { window.addEventListener("load", function() { cssmw1.intializeMenu('cssmw1',{select_current: 1, orientation: 1}); }, true); }</script>
