View Full Version : Two Nav Bars in one page

03-05-2007, 10:11 AM
Is there away of getting dreamweaver to allow me to have two nav bars in one page?

I currently have a nav bar setup which is working fine but when I try to insert the second one a dialogue box appears stating

"Each page can only have one navigation bar, and one already exists on this page. Would you like to modify the existing one"

Is there a way around this?

hand code your requirements and stop relying on dreamweavers toys

Thats fine if you know how but I don't.

How would you tackle this if you were to hand code it, does this need java script? or just html?

I would like to know how if you have the time to give me some idea of the basics.

Or is there away of tricking dreamweaver.

Ricky, I think this is a limitation in the built in tool.

post a link to the page so i can understand what your after

then i can come up with an alternative

its the flash menu (upper left) that I need to replace as I want the site to run from CD and it won't with the flash menu as these refer to the url.

I suppose these could just be simple rollover buttons but I just wanted to know if there was a way around this.


Would still appreciate any other ideas though.

i think i have said this before...

thats a nice site

cant you just keep this as it is and just use relative links in your flash

Not to my knowledge mate I don't think flash can work like that. Unless anyone knows different.

I'll give it a try but I'm fairly sure the getURL needs exactly that a full URL.

I'll let you know how I get on.

Thanks for your comments about the site and yes you have said it before that you like it but thanks anyway.

it is possible to create relative links in flash I've just tested this

using the getURL

b1.onRelease = function() {
getURL("products/beds/bed_selector.html", "_self");

Just thought I'd let you know.
