    Drop-down menus

    Denyf359
      Is there a solution to this problem? In Fireworks 4 - 8 the drop-down menu wizard does well, and it works on the local computer, however, when uploaded, using Frontpage, to the website the drop-down does not work. In fact it gives an error message.

      I called support and they just said it would take time for the engineers to look into it.

      Would someone let me know.. Thanks

            This file is not present - http://www.yourbodyguard.com/mm_menu.js

            It needs to be there. You didn't upload it.

                I knew that. You have not uploaded the mm_menu.js file.

                    Wait until you discover how truly awful these menus are. Then you'll be

                      I just wonder: do you dislike all the drop-down menus completely? I
                      personally find some of them convenient. What exactly you don't like, may
                      I ask you?

                        Murray's reference is very specifically to the FW-created menus, which
                        rely (or at least used to) on javascript, are rather heavy relative to
                        other drop-down menu products, and are difficult to update. I've seen
                        Murray recommend other menu products (specifically Project Seven's:
                        http://projectseven.com/) on a number of occasions.

                          ...not to mention that they were completely un-accessible. The new FW8
                          menus are only marginally better as, at least, the menu markup is no
                          longer written to the page through JavaScript but the JS bloat has been
                          replaced by CSS bloat and the menus are almost as unwieldy as they've
                          ever been.

                          Personally, aside from complete Web design beginners who don't know
                          better yet, I don't understand why anyone would use a graphic app to
                          create menu functionality and even less when it's well known how bad and
                          inefficient they are. Any of the PVII menu products are far more
                          flexible and easier to deal with and there are several other
                          alternatives that create much better quality menus than the FW/DW canned
                          ones. All of those will create much lighter and completely accessible
                          code and you'll be using the right tool for the job to create them:
                          Dreamweaver or another HTML/CSS/JS editing app or complete Web authoring
                          app, not a graphic app that is ill suited for the task.
