          Hi,
          You can use the spry menu bar... go up to the main menu on Dreamweaver>Insert>Spry>Spry Menu Bar. The "Help" will assist you in formatting it. You can make it Horizontal or Vertical. After I am done I copy it into the Library Assets so if I have a change, I only have to change it in one place. When I hit save, it updates all the pages I have used that particular menu.
          Cheers,
          Janell

            That page is totally done in flash. Plus your saying <it doesn't work to
            link my buttons to my internal dream weaver pages> This only means that
            you didnt code your flash the right way. To do this you need to use action
            script either on a button or a movie clip like and apply this
            on (press) {
            getURL("index.html", "_blank");
            }
            But for more info on flash go to the flash forum

            But if you want to use half flash and half HTML. Then you will need to have
            a flash with button that point to another html file in all the page. Still
            you will need to use action acript to code your button.

            If you have DW CS3 or CS4 just use the spry menu fonction. It will create a
            drop down menu. Plus I think DW8 had something similar but can't remember
            how it was done.

                I have just added a spry menu. It confused a novice like me at first, but with a bit of tweaking I can now create very nice drop downs and modify their look and feel.

                I tend to ignore a lot of the spry CSS, although width, border colour, background colour and text colour modifications seem to produce something that is nice and professional in no time at all.
