Dreamweaver: Pop-Up Menu & Library

By DSlife ·
I am trying to create a navigation bar that has a pop-up menu for some of it's links. I can get that to work fine, but when I try to make the whole navigation bar a library item, the links that are created to be the pop-up menu don't work in the library but those button that don't have the menu do.

Does anyone know how to get this navigation bar to work as a library item in Dreamweaver?

Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance.

stop using dreamweaver

if you just learn to code, you could make yourself an open source code library that would program that for you each time. thats what i did. then you don't even have to rely on whatever the **** a dreamweaver library item is

Use an Include

by owensm In reply to Dreamweaver: Pop-Up Menu ...

I use Dreamweaver extensively and have never seen a need to use the library at all. I use it in Flash but not in Dreamweaver.

If your reasoning behind wanting to create a library item out of a dropdown menu is to simplify editing across a site...just use an include file instead. Create your dropdown menu, save all the parameters and references to your external files into a single file...such as dropdownMenu.inc. Then in your file where you want the menu, you would refrnce it by using:

<!--#include virtual="yourFilePath/dropdownMenu.inc" -->
