Updating a Fireworks Interactive HTML Image into Dreamweaver

Posted on 2006-04-05
Last Modified: 2010-04-25
I am using Dreamweaver MX along with Fireworks MX.

I created a menu bar with a dropdown menu in Fireworks and inserted it into my site using Dreamweaver.  Whenever I make updates to the menu I have to manually open each page on my website and delete the old menubar and insert the new one.  Is there an easier way to go about this?  I have 50 pages on my site and this is becoming very cumbersome. is my website.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    Hi missywpitt,

    What you want to do is insert the menu using server-side includes if your site supports it or make the menu a DW Library Item if you cannot use server-side includes.

    In either case, all you would need to do is alter each page once more so that it calls the include or Library item.  After that, every change to the menubar will be reflected automatically throughout your site.
