    Help with Drop Menus

    Chester_22 Level 1
      I am designing a site that has multiple pages of images. (Photographer website) I added a drop menu to keep the site organized but I am now running into problems. Because of the multiple pages, whenever she wants to upload pictures I have to adjust the drop menu on like 15 pages. So I did the site over using frames thinking this would help. But no. Now the frame cuts the drop menu off.

      So my question is. Is there a way to create a link or javascript that I can link to on each page and then only edit that one item. So when I go to that link/script and edit it, it will just link to all other pages that contain that link/script. I don't know if this is an easy fix, but I have just been pulling what little hair out I have.

      Thanks in advance.

          Investigate using DW's Library items, or Templates, or ordinary Server-side
          includes. It's the only way to do it.

            Thanks for your reply.

            Could I use a layer on top of the button I want to script in the frame, and then add the drop menu to it? My client just likes the design and I want to try and keep it as close as possible. I don't know much about coding and all the technical stuff. Thats why I use dreamweaver.
