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 down menu dreamweaver

    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 a down menu dreamweaver to many pages using Dynamic Web Template

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

    Open website in Dreamweaver

    - Lets create the template for the website which we'll use on all pages. Delete all unnecessary code from this page.

    - Now you should add a down menu in your template page. Switch to the Design view mode. Decide where you would like the down menu to appear in your page. Click in the spot you want the code to appear in and type the phrase: your code here

    Dynamic Web Templates add menu

    - 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 -->

    - 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.

    - 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.

    - To display images correctly you should change "menu-files/" to "templtes/menu-files/". Find the following code
    <!-- Begin Vista-Buttons.com -->
    <link href="templates/menu-files/styles_z7r36.css" type="text/css" rel="stylesheet"/>
    <script type="text/javascript"> var vbImgPath="templates/menu-files/"</script>
    <script type="text/javascript" src="templates/menu-files/scz7r36.js"></script>
    <noscript><a href="http://vista-buttons.com">Html Buttons Gif by Vista-Buttons.com v2.73</a></noscript>
    <!-- End Vista-Buttons.com -->

    Change path prefix in Dreamweaver

    - Switch to the Design view mode. Now you should select regions that will be editable. For example lets create three editable regions: two titles and the main content area. Right click the selected area, choose the templates, and make the template become new editable region.

    Dynamic Web Templates create editable region

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

    Editable Region name

    - So, you'll have:

    Dynamic Web Templates create editable region

    - Save this file as a template. So, the file will store in the assets of the files.

    Dynamic Web Templates save as template

    - Your template will be saved in the "templates" folder. Now you should copy the "menu-files" folder into the same folder with your main_template.dwt page ("templates" folder).
