I have been using Kaosweavers pop up behavior for years, inlcuding in CS6 but now CS6 refuses to show any behaviors. As far as I know I have not changed anything other tahn apply the last update and when I open the extension manager it sees the pop up behavior and says it is installed. What happened?
behaviors (in the right colum) are grayed out. I was always able to select the behaviors list which dropped open and I selected the kaos I wanted. now, that list is just grayed out like there are no behaviors
why would this be a problem int he behavior when it worked fine all along. It;s not a new version of the behavior or anything. dreamweaver just stopped seeing behaviors or something. If I open the extension manager in dreamweaver it sees the extension and says it is enabled. but in dreamweaver there is nothing, that list is grayed out
You have to have a page element selected to which the given extension can be applied before that extension name will be enabled in the Behaviors panel. Are you sure you have done that? If you see the name in the Behaviors panel, even though it's not enabled, then DW recognizes that the extension is installed and is likely functional.
I place a small photo, then click that photo apply the behavior for the pop up. That has always worked until this morning. In dreamweaver itself while editing the site the bahaviors is grayed out, you cant select it to get to the list. close the site and open the extension manager and it shows the extension as enabled. Open the page to edit it again, select the photo and the behaviors is still grayed out
Not sure what a template child is but I have tried oler pages that have nopt been changed in months, older sites, everything I can find and nothing allow the behaviors to become active again. this is very strange and very frustrating. I have been cruising along with ddreamweaver for years with no issues until cs 6, the ftp thing, did that update and the ftp seems fine but now the behaviors thing.
I tired deleting the behavior in the manager and then reinstalling it but no joy. the behaviors section is still grayed out.
Did you use a DW template to create this page? Can you show us the code on the page?
What happens if you create a new, blank HTML page (FILE | New... > Blank HTML), drop an image on it and select that image. Can you now apply the behavior?
I used the same DW template that I used on a couple hundred other pages that worked fine.
I am going to have to leave this for later. I am already late in leaving for the airport. thanks for your help.
The blank HTML approach is the best thing to try first. If you can make the extension work on the fresh page containing only an image, then you know it must be something about your other page. Then we can look at the code.
