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 drop down menu

    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

    Insert dreamweaver drop down menu to a single page

    - Start Dreamweaver and open the web page that you will be inserting the script into. When the page opens, it should look like this:

    Open website in Dreamweaver

    - 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. In the Design mode decide where you would like the drop down menu to appear in your page. It helps you add the menu code in the correct place. Click in the spot you want the code to appear in and type the phrase: your code here

    Insert menu in Dreamweaver

    - We will now be inserting the JavaScript code into the body section right where we typed the phrase in the previous step. To do this, switch to HTML View.

    Insert drop down menu in 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. Since the phrase we typed was highlighted, it will be replaced when we paste the code in.

    Insert menu in Dreamweaver

    - Now you should copy the "menu-files" folder into the same folder with your index.html page.

    Copy menu files in Dreamweaver

    - Notice that in the Design mode your drop down menu won't display. It is normal. You should view your page in browser.

    Design mode in Dreamweaver

    - That's all. You've added all necessary code to your page, so let's test it. Select "File/Preview in browser/IExplore" to display the page live (in Internet Explorer).
