    Pop-up menus and frames

    Max Stewart Level 1
      A web page with Fireworks 8 Javascript (not CSS) pop-up menus imported into Dreamweaver 8 works fine on its own. However, if I include the page in a frameset, the menus appear to work OK (e.g. everything pops up and down when expected, all the rollover transitions appear flawless, and the pop-ups are well clear of the frame boundary), but when a popped up menu item is selected, nothing happens - the top-level menu items are the only ones which still navigate to their links.

      (I normally avoid using framesets, but the frameset in this instance has a useful applications function and I would be loth to remove it)

          Hi Max:

          Did you define a target for your pop-up menu links? See:

          http://www.adobe.com/devnet/studio/articles/fwmx_popup03.html

          Also make sure that the paths in the links are valid URLs.

          It would seem strange that nothing is happening. How do the menus work
          when you browse the Fireworks HTML directly outside the frameset? This
          might give us a clue as to what's happening.

          enthusiastically,
