Please help with dreamweaver cs3 question

Jan 23, 2014 4:48 PM

Can someone please tell me why my dreamweaver freezes up for literally 10 mins or more whever I try to incorporate a icon rollover button into my website pages. Because having a rollover button on my website pages, whenever I click on any part of my page, my screen freezes up saying not responding and when i wait like 5 to 10 mins, the tasks will finally be done. Is this a adobe dreamweaver glitch or considered normal? If this keeps on going on it will take literally days just to do what is suppose to be a simple tasks of incorporating a rollover icon button. thanks

    Are you working in Split view, Design view, or Live view?

    If yes to any of those, I'd recommend working in Code view only and previewing in a Browser as you update things.

    Sometimes if a script calls an external source, it can really bog down Live or Design view.

    Me? I wouldn't copy & paste it into all those pages.

    I'd go to the spot where it is in the code. Copy it along with the line before and after, and then fo a "Find & Replace"... of the line before & after... and replace it with... the line, rollover, and line after... and do it "sitewide".

    I'm not a big fan of rollover images. Too much extra junk with the javascript and preloading.

    Much easier to use CSS and a background change. If you need a link for the rollover, use a transparent PNG and add the link to it. Even with an image map it's much less work, and much less to copy & paste.
