css3menu in dreamweaver

Posted on 2012-09-17

Hi. I have css3menu (paid version) and I'm trying to get this into a dreamweaver 5.5 template. I did a couple tests in the css3menu program and it looks ok. It works in it's own program. Where I'm having a problem is when I paste the code into my dreamweaver template. Here's a link to the test page that isn't working. ""  I also attached a screen shot from the css3menu program of how it should look. This is a help link to how it should go into my code. "". I have the visual elements in the dreamweaver site folder so the code can pull from it. Not sure how I messed this up. I have an email to css3menu but not sure when I'll hear back - time zone issue, not sure. Let me know if you need any more info. Thanks in advance for your help. Scott

    Check your paths.  The sample page you link to has a 404 error for styles.css and everything goes downhill from there.

    Always remember when using DW Templates that the template file is stored in /Templates and the relative path needs to reflect that (typically "../resourcefolder/file.css").  I actually recommend that you use absolute URLs or root paths ("/resourcefolder/file.css") as DW Template path rewriting is a long time buggy feature and can fail.

    The sample page if full of markup errors.  You can test with invalid code.  Though with the not found 404 it is certainly not going to give you much anyway.
