Hi all, I'm new here and to web design...I tried out Dreamweaver CS3 to make a website...here's my problem.

Everything seems to work fine on my local PC but when I upload to my customers server and to my ISP's server I get javascript:; errors relating to my Fireworks CS3 created navbar on both servers and my Flash clip doesn't show up at all on my customers server although it does work fine on my ISP's server. Can anyone help, I'm going crazy trying to figure this out!

Hi snablap and welcome to WebmasterWorld.

I had to edit your message because our tos doesn't allow links to specific websites. What we try and do is try and be as general as possible when describing our issue, then hopefuly others will be able to offer some help.

Im sure you will have checked, but is it possibly a file paths issue?

Hi Mack and thanks...like I say I'm really new and learning at this stuff...I think I know what you mean by paths but not sure...is it OK to include the source code like this:

<!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD XHTML 1.0 Transitional//EN" "http://www.w3.org/TR/xhtml1/DTD/xhtml1-transitional.dtd">
<html xmlns="http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml">

<style type="text/css">
@import url("navbar6/navbar6.css");

body {
font: 100% Verdana, Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif;
margin: 0; /* it's good practice to zero the margin and padding of the body element to account for differing browser defaults */
padding: 0;
text-align: center; /* this centers the container in IE 5* browsers. The text is then set to the left aligned default in the #container selector */
color: #000000;
background-color: #FFFFFF;

/* Tips for Elastic layouts
1. Since the elastic layouts overall sizing is based on the user's default fonts size, they are more unpredictable. Used correctly, they are also more accessible for those that need larger fonts size since the line length remains proportionate.
2. Sizing of divs in this layout are based on the 100% font size in the body element. If you decrease the text size overall by using a font-size: 80% on the body element or the #container, remember that the entire layout will downsize proportionately. You may want to increase the widths of the various divs to compensate for this.
3. If font sizing is changed in differing amounts on each div instead of on the overall design (ie: #sidebar1 is given a 70% font size and #mainContent is given an 85% font size), this will proportionately change each of the divs overall size. You may want to adjust based on your final font sizing.

Welcome aboard snablap.

Are the two files here uploaded with the project?

<script language="JavaScript1.2" type="text/javascript" src="navbar5/mm_css_menu.js"></script>
<script src="Scripts/AC_RunActiveContent.js" type="text/javascript"></script>

Check for case sensitivity of the directory and file names too, AC_RunActiveContent.js is NOT the same as ac_runactivecontent.js on most systems; Scripts and scripts are also not the same thing.

If they ARE uploaded with the project, make sure any path references in them are correct. When we say path, we mean the system path, the indication of directories, to files. So in the above example,


the "path" is: start at domain root, descend into the directory/folder "navbar5" and locate the file mm_css_menu.js. That is the relative path to that file.

[rant]Good grief I detest what DW does to code. Good luck with your project.[/rant]
