  Double Menu Item Errors

Double Sets of Top-Navigation Menu Items OR
Double Sets of Sub-Navigation Menu Items


  1. Please try updating the entire site via:

    Modify --> Templates --> Update Pages...

  2. Make sure the Templates checkbox is checked and hit Start button to Update the entire site.
  3. WHY:
    This happens when you make a change the library items but the templates have not been updated to reflect the new library item changes.
  4. TIP:
    Whenever you update a library item and you want to make the changes effective immediately, its good to make sure the Templates checkbox is checked. If there are many changes to say other library items, one can wait until after those changes are made and then Update the Entire site with the above method
    Basically it's a library item to template synchronization step that hasn't been done just yet. All you have to do is an Update Pages.... command as mention in Step 1 above.
  Known Issues
  1. If an existing object (text, html, anchor tags, images) that contains JavaScript rollover code, is dragged into a library item, lbi file, Dreamweaver thinks it's still a regular web pages and will automatically add JavaScript code as well as the onLoad body tag JavaScript.

    If this happens, carefully select all the JavaScript that was created, <script> .....</script> tags and the <body> tag and delete such code.
  2. I only see one image in my LIBRARY ITEM, but I am sure I put more than one image, sort of like 5 or so
    If you made a library item from scratch, via choosing the New Library Item button, Dreamweaver MX automatically put code like the following:

    < meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=iso-8859-1">

    If you are using JavaScript rollovers, Dreamweaver MX automatically puts <script tags> <body> tags and javascript functions to handle the rollover.

    SOLUTION: Just delete this added information and save the file...everything should then work as normal.

  3. Rollovers aren't working on my computer
    Depending upon the how things are setup on your computer there is a line in the swap.js file for calculating the file path of any web pattern using rollovers.

    Near the bottom, past line 88.

    CASE #2
            m_Adjusted_slash_length = slashArray.length - array_Folder_InternalWindows.length - 2;

    This is sometimes a 1 or 2.

    If you don't get the rollovers to work for the specific case of when testing it on your computer with no web server setup or no testing server configured in Dreamweaver, than this is where that's set.

    From now on, I am probably going to recommend to everyone to always have a testing server setup and that means they have to have a personal web server on their system as they, who should be a web savvy, should in the first place.

    CASE #2, file method, is more of a feature of convenience and web sites using javascript shouldn't be tested that way anyway.

  Error Messages
  Error Message: Dreamweaver is unable to rename the template. Access was denied.
You most likely are attempting to rename an item to an item that has the SAME NAME.
Use a different name. Or rename the existing item. and then rename the other item.
WHAT IN THE WORLD is going on???
Where did all that code come from and I can't even see the TopNav bar anymore......The TopNav Bar look likes it been corrupted with gibberish code like the following:
  <!-- function MM_swapImgRestore() { //v3.0 var i,x,a=document.MM_sr; for(i=0;a&&i<a.length&&(x=a[i])&&x.oSrc;i++) x.src=x.oSrc; } function MM_preloadImages() { //v3.0 var d=document; if(d.images){ if(!d.MM_p) d.MM_p=new Array(); var i,j=d.MM_p.length,a=MM_preloadImages.arguments; for(i=0; i<a.length; i++) if (a[i].indexOf("#")!=0){ d.MM_p[j]=new Image; d.MM_p[j++].src=a[i];}} } function MM_findObj(n, d) { //v4.01 var p,i,x; if(!d) d=document; if((p=n.indexOf("?"))>0&&parent.frames.length) { d=parent.frames[n.substring(p+1)].document; n=n.substring(0,p);} if(!(x=d[n])&&d.all) x=d.all[n]; for (i=0;!x&&i<d.forms.length;i++) x=d.forms[i][n]; for(i=0;!x&&d.layers&&i<d.layers.length;i++) x=MM_findObj(n,d.layers[i].document); if(!x && d.getElementById) x=d.getElementById(n); return x; } //-->
Dreamweaver MX sometimes during updates to files, namely library items with JavaScript rollover, will automatically add the JavaScript code to make the rollover function. Because the code is usually in a table cell that has "nowrap" on, you will have an usually wide web page. Thus, you will not be able to see anything since the navbar is so far to the right and you will have to scroll horizontally to the right just to see it.
If you used a single Library item for the TopNav Bar, then open the _TOPNAV template, go into the NavbarTOP area and delete the above code and just leaving the original library item. Because of this problem, it is recommended that you use a single library item for the TopNav Bar until this problem is fixed by Macromedia. This will make deleting the offended giberish code very easy as you can easily tell what is still the library item and what is the gibberish garbage code.
swap image behavior error
(note: this should almost never happen anymore as the rollover behavior has been totally replaced to avoid Dreamweaver implementation of it as it was too slow and poorly done.)
  You get this error when UPDATING the Web Site, via changes to the template or library items.
Error: Cannot copy the "Swap Image" behavior. Use the Behavior Inspector to remove it and apply it again.
The code for onMouseOver and onMouseOut need to be PERFECT.
The functions called by them, MM_swapImage(), has to be PERFECTLY coded....In other
words, all of the parameters MUST BE CORRECT, it cannot call adjacent images and the image names must be correct.

You probably have some of the code in the TOPNAV library item switched around
