I just built a site using Dreamweaver CS4. I uploaded it today and the sidebar (sitemap) isn't working. When you click on one of the links, the whole sidebar moves down and reveals more of the header. The page doesn't change either. I have checked for bad links, but it shows that there aren't any. I am lost. Please help! If it helps to see the problem for yourself, the address is www.stonepizzarockhill.com . Thank you!
FRAMES! Yikes. Don't use Frames/framesets. They cause more problems than you know.
HTML5 no longer supports Frames.
Better Choice: look at F1 Help on the use of Dreamweaver Templates (.dwt) or Server-side Includes.
What would be the best style and layout for redoing this site? I would like to still have the header with the stone background image. I need all the help I can get. Thank you for so much for your replies. I feel less alone in this.
No need to panic here, you do not have to scrap any of the content you built;
you can use it all except the frames structure
I suggest you use SSI (server side includes) for the repetitive elements on your pages like headers, menus and footers.
