    Nagging "There are no destinations for Code Navigator..."

    janericster Community Member

      I recently purchased a stock template to put together a site rather quickly for a friend. Whenever I open a page and click anywhere in the Code view, regardless of whetehr I have Live Code or Live View enabled, Dreamweaver keeps popping up the following dialog box:

       

      "There are no destinations for Code Navigator to show for this selection."

       

      It just has the OK button which I have to press to then start typing in code view.

       

      This happens every time and obviously slows down my work speed.

       

      Also, if I click anywhere in the Design view, I get a different popup showing the page filename, with a link to the source code and a message to optionally disable the navigator (icon) indicator. But if I click the checkbox it doesn't do anything and the popup comes up every time I click.

       

      So I'm obviously assuming something is not compatible with Dreamweaver the way the template is set up, but I have no idea where to start looking to turn these darn prompts off.

       

      The file uses standard HTML code (no PHP) and the page has a link to an external CSS stylesheet which looks standard to me (I'm not a coder but a designer at heart).

       

      Any ideas would be greatly appreciated!

          Some things to check:

           

          1) Your local DW site is properly defined  -- Site > Manage Sites?

          2) You're working with valid code?

           

               Code Validation Tools
               ------------------------------------
               CSS - http://jigsaw.w3.org/css-validator/
               HTML - http://validator.w3.org/

           

          Where did you obtain the template?

            Don't know if it will make any difference to you, but I suggest taking a look at this thread: http://forums.adobe.com/message/3320666#3320666.

              Hi Nancy:

               

              Thanks for the reply. I ran the HTML file through the W3C check and it passed as HTML5.

               

              I purchased the template from here:

              http://themeforest.net/item/prosto-business-portfolio-html-css-theme/139220

               

              The popups happen when I open the template's sample HTML files without doing anything, so I know it isn't anything I added or edited to the page.

               

              Next I checked the style.css file with the other link you supplied and it DID show 21 errors (this is the original one from the template). 


              I'm pasting the results here in case anything looks like the culprit to you as I wouldn't know what to do to fix anything (again, I'm a designer more than a coder):

                HTML5 and CSS level 3 support hasn't caught up to all the major browsers and code validators yet.  Proprietary rules for  Mozilla and WebKit browsers isn't invalid, it just doesn't validate in the W3C's checkers.  So don't worry about those CSS errors.

                 

                I'm not sure if David's link is helpful to your situation.  I'm not a Mac user...

                 

                Does your installation of DW include the HTML5 support Pack?

                  Thanks David and Nancy.

                   

                  Yes, I followed the instructions on that other message and it fixed it (for now).  I do have a Mac and this seemed to have broke after the last Leopard update...but not 100% sure.

                   

                  Applying the patch did not fix it until after I rebooted.

                   

                  Keeping my fingers crossed that the problem doesn't resurface like it has for others. What a joy it will be to work again with having to click OK every 5 seconds!

                   

                  Thanks again.

                    I encountered the same problem as soon as I installed "moveAddict" daemon (http://kapeli.com/). Apparently this has something to do with assistive devices in OS X. By force quitting moveAddict, Dreamweaver worked as before.

                          The code navigator does not find css files that are linked in php includes.

                          If the css is explicitly linked to the file such as ...

                          <link rel="stylesheet" href="../css/mystylesheet.css" type="text/css" />

                          code navigator works.  But if you have a php include such as ....

                          <?php include("../assets/MyListOfStyleSheetsINeedToLink.php");  ?>

                          where 'MyListOfStyleSheetsINeedToLink.php' is something like ...

                          <link rel="stylesheet" href="../css/StyleSheet1.css" type="text/css" />

                          <link rel="stylesheet" href="../css/StyleSheet2.css" type="text/css" />

                          <style type="text/css"></style>

                          The Code Navigator cannot find the style sheet and gives the error  "There are no destinations for Code Navigator..." or simply disables the Code Navigator option in the context menu.

                          Too bad for Dreamweaver.
