How to use Dreamweaver Menu extension

    To install the menu into your html page you should do the following things:

    Create and save your buttons in any temp folder using Vista Buttons application. It will be better to export all menu code to external .js file. Go to "Tools/Export options...". Check "Save all menu params to js file" option.

    Export options

    You can use "Save as HTML" function.

    Save Dreamweaver navigation

    You can enter any name you like, for example enter "menu":

    Save Dreamweaver menu name

    So you'll have menu.html file and "menu-files" folder with all menu files.

    Generated files

    - Start Dreamweaver and open your website. When the website opens, it should look like this:

    - To create the library item you should do the following things:
    Create a new folder in the root of your website, for example "library". In this folder create a "New File" and name it menu.lbi.

    Create Library in Dreamweaver

    - Now you can add a javascript menu in your library. Open menu.lbi page (double-click menu.lbi in Files list window) and switch to the HTML View. Delete all code from this page. Open the generated in Vista Buttons menu.htmlpage in any text editor. Copy all code within the following tags:
          <!-- Begin Vista-Buttons.com -->
            ...
          <!-- End Vista-Buttons.com -->

    - Go back to Dreamweaver. Go to the "Edit Menu" with Dreamweaver and select the "Paste" option to paste the menu code that we copied to the clipboard earlier. To display images correctly you should change vbImgPath parameter. Find the following code
    var vbImgPath="menu-files/"
    and change it to
    var vbImgPath="library/menu-files/"
