    Problems with "Pop-Up" Menu

    eouskov
      I am new to Dreamweaver and site building, but my father has asked me to make a site for his company, UP Development, an aircraft leasing/ broker company.

      Here's a link for constructive criticism: www.updevelopment.ca

      The problem I am having is with the "Pop-Up" Menus.

      Basically the site has 2 versions, English and Russian, the english menus work fine, but the russian ones will not pop up.

      I think the problem is, that the russian menus never created a "mm_menu.js" file, but the english ones did. I have proof because when I open the page up in a browser it says "an object is expected"

      Does anyone know how I can "create" or force a creation of another "mm_menu.js"?

      Please and thank you, and by the way, I'm using Dreamweaver 8.

          Add a DOCTYPE to your Russian page as your English version does.
          There are other issues but see if this helps for a start.

            Sorry if this sounds dumb, but what exactly is a DOCTYPE and how do I add it?

                It's this and should be at the very top line.
                <!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD XHTML 1.0 Transitional//EN"
                " http://www.w3.org/TR/xhtml1/DTD/xhtml1-transitional.dtd">


                you have them on both English and Russian pages

                Dw puts them in automatically on new pages - and can put them into
                old pages if you

                  eouskov Level 1
                  I tried inserting the DOCTYPE into my Russian pages.

                  The message still says "Error: object expected" I'm asuming it means the "mm_menu.js" file, but I don't know how to provide one as one was never created for the Russian pages.

                  So what do you suggest I do now to solve the problem?

                      Oh! Sorry about that, when I said "Russian pages" I meant the ones you reach by clicking the button that says "pyc" right beside "eng", not www.updevelopment.ru.

                        I noticed that on the main English section that the style sheets are
                        still in the header, whereas the Russian one is in a separate eternal
                        style sheet.
                        Wouldn't it be easier to manage and maintain if the kept most if not
                        all css styles in a common external file or files.

                        I don't know much about Russian - but maybe you need a few differences
                        in some CSS styles - for fonts perhaps - but that would be easy to
                        accommodate by giving the different pages separate ID's and then:

                        #russian p
                        #english p

                        etc etc
