OK I have the same problem so I deleted the cache file went back to DW made my changes in menu writer and it processed it.

Went back and made other changes and it just hangs again

I just don't have the time to close out of DW and delete the cache file for every change

What is going on ?

Menuwriter hanging workaround

My menu is within a template and I have found a way around the hanging by only making one set of changes and then saving the menu and template and closing the template.

Re-open the template and only make one set of changes each time. If you make a change to the menu, save it and then make another change it hangs.

Does this work for anybody else? Hope this helps someone.

thanks, but ...

this is some good advice for the time but not a solution.
It took me quite some time to create this menu from scratch, with a lot of fine-tuning and at the very last stage the whole thing crashed and each detail was lost entirely.

I have to leave tomorrow, my work is not done and I had to buy a working extension from DMXzone (Universal CSS Navigation Menu for $45), since the support ticket remained un-answered. Maybe it was not enough time to solve the problem.
DMXzones extension is not that flexible though. It only works with some presets which you could like or not and it needs a lot of fiddling in the style sheet itself, so I find WA's menu writer much more professional with a lot of good submenus full of fine-tuning-features - if it worked as expected.

To me this looks similar to crashes of DA's preview problem whenever you use a template. This issue is known for many, many months and is still not repaired. I use verion 2.0.8 now and it still is one of the best extensions I ever used.

oops, I found a ticket message in the junk folder of my ISP, before it was sent to my email account.

I have a site that is doing the same thing. It starts out with Initializing, if I delete the cache, it says Processing, but then it never fully forms the menu. Please see the following URL:

mainMenuID=5
