Aughh! I am almost done with my website, when I go back to
Fireworks and add a couple new tabs on a drop-down menu. I update
the DWT file in Dreamweaver, but one of two things happens: either
the update simply doesn't "take", or all of the <body>
section is mysteriously deleted from the DWT file. If I preview the
Fireworks template in my browser (from Fireworks), everything is as
it should be, but not when I preview in Dreamweaver. Not sure if
this is a Fireworks issue or a Dreamweaver issue but I thought I'd
start here and perhaps post in the Dreamweaver forum next.
Come on... someone has to have an answer for this...
otherwise I'm gonna' have to eliminate the drop-down and navigate
to a menu page.
Please... for all that is holy... HELP!
Fireworks HTML is meant for prototyping, for making mockups
to show people. It is
not meant for building real sites in. Fireworks is a
graphics application, not a Web production environment. The HTML
Fireworks produces is not robust (as you have discovered). You are
better off using Dreamweaver, especially if you don't know enough
There are also some professional menus you can buy that will
be robust, cross-browser, cross-platform , and well-tested. You
will save yourself many hours and headaches buying something that
works rather than spending those hours fighting Fireworks code.
