Nagging "There are no destinations for Code Navigator..."

Dec 5, 2010 5:18 PM

I recently purchased a stock template to put together a site rather quickly for a friend. Whenever I open a page and click anywhere in the Code view, regardless of whetehr I have Live Code or Live View enabled, Dreamweaver keeps popping up the following dialog box:

 

"There are no destinations for Code Navigator to show for this selection."

 

It just has the OK button which I have to press to then start typing in code view.

 

This happens every time and obviously slows down my work speed.

 

Also, if I click anywhere in the Design view, I get a different popup showing the page filename, with a link to the source code and a message to optionally disable the navigator (icon) indicator. But if I click the checkbox it doesn't do anything and the popup comes up every time I click.

 

So I'm obviously assuming something is not compatible with Dreamweaver the way the template is set up, but I have no idea where to start looking to turn these darn prompts off.

 

The file uses standard HTML code (no PHP) and the page has a link to an external CSS stylesheet which looks standard to me (I'm not a coder but a designer at heart).

 

Any ideas would be greatly appreciated!

    Some things to check:

     

    1) Your local DW site is properly defined  -- Site > Manage Sites?

    2) You're working with valid code?

     

         Code Validation Tools
         ------------------------------------
         CSS - http://jigsaw.w3.org/css-validator/
         HTML - http://validator.w3.org/

     

    Where did you obtain the template?

    Don't know if it will make any difference to you, but I suggest taking a look at this thread: http://forums.adobe.com/message/3320666#3320666.

    HTML5 and CSS level 3 support hasn't caught up to all the major browsers and code validators yet.  Proprietary rules for  Mozilla and WebKit browsers isn't invalid, it just doesn't validate in the W3C's checkers.  So don't worry about those CSS errors.

     

    I'm not sure if David's link is helpful to your situation.  I'm not a Mac user...

     

    Does your installation of DW include the HTML5 support Pack?

    I encountered the same problem as soon as I installed "moveAddict" daemon (http://kapeli.com/). Apparently this has something to do with assistive devices in OS X. By force quitting moveAddict, Dreamweaver worked as before.
