navigation links resolve to wrong ulr

I have created site on Windows Os server at host. Domain www.calaveraspolitics.com. I have been successful in uploading files to hosting company using dw. I can see all files under httpdocs. Index page is visible to public...the problem occurs when using the navigation bar. The url wants to include httpdocs prior to the page name. For example, when clicking on About us nav button the results is aboutus.php. And this page will not load. However, if we take out the httpdocs from the address bar url and have aboutus.php, the correct url does show. What is the problem? Or how do I go about correcting the error. I have used dw to edit the site and create the correct remote servers connections. Help please. Thank you. Steve

In your CSSMenuWriter folder in the site there are two locations where the menu is stored, there is one copy for the index page and another for the content pages.

The menu on the index page is controlled with the cssmw_home > menu.php file and the content menu is controlled with the cssmw_content > menu.php file.

In here at the top of the file you will have your root values like this:

php:
$WA_localRoot = "/sa/";

$WA_remoteRoot = "/";



This is where you need to adjust the paths. You should see one with the httpdocs in it and remove this part of the URL if it is interfering with your menu.

Thank you. I have changed the "httpdocs" within the quotation marks with a "/" forward slash as I believe this is what you meant by "removing it" correct? It works...Thank you very much.

That is exactly rite, you just need to get these paths to match up to your server setup.
