    DW8; Layer window not showing layers

    Jim4573910
      I'm working on a website that uses a lot of layers, but none of the
      layers show up in the Layer window. In another website I'm working on,
      only one of the layers shows up in the Layer window.

      I've been playing around with this and when I insert a new layer by going Insert>Layout objects>Layer a new layer appears which shows up in the Layers window. I originally created my layers "by hand" by punching in the div tags, and these layers are not showing up in the Layers window.

      Any ideas as to how I can fix this? Thanks!

          If the page is a child page of a template, then none of the layers that are
          not in editable regions will appear in the Layers panel. Might that be the
          problem?

          Also, if your 'layers' are not absolutely positioned elements, then they
          also will not appear in the Layers panel.

          However, without seeing your specific page and looking at its code, it's
          hard to say precisely what could be the problem. Can you post a link to the
          page for us?

            Dreamweaver will only display Layers or AP elements if they have an ID. The
            ID is the name displayed. If the AP element simply has a class, then it is a
            perfectly valid AP element, but DW has no idea what to name it, so it names
            it "unnamed".
