Hi there,
I was wondering if anyone can tell me what I am doing wrong! I designed a pop up menu in fireworks, exported it to a flash drive as 'html and images' and then copied the folder over to my website directory on a diferent computer. When I double clicked the .html file from the file list (in the pop-up menu folder), it displays correctly in its own window as a PNG file (works when previewed in browser), but when I try to 'insert fireworks html' into a table on my already designed index page, it is f*&ked (pardon my french). What am I doing wrong? I've also tried using a dreamweaver nav bar with the pop up beaviours in dreamweaver and that didn't work, then tried to just link the dreamweaver pop up menu to an image, and that worked for the first image in the vertical list but not the second item, I'm at my wits' end! I really like the look of the fireworks one so if anyone knows how I can get it to work in dreamweaver, I would be forever grateful. ;-)
cheers

Trying to export html from Fireworks for starters. Also designing with tables. Sorry to say it but you need to go back to the basics and learn a bit about HTML and CSS before you try to get too fancy.

Thanks. It might be more helpful though if you described how to make a pop up menu with html and css.Fireworks has 'export html' and dreamweaver has 'insert fireworks html' so I have a feeling someone must know how to make that work!

There are a lot of tutorials out there. Current versions of Dreamweaver have Spry Menubars built in. There will help you get started:

The Ten Commandments for Editing Dreamweaver’s Spry Menubars (http://www.dwcourse.com/dreamweaver/ten-commandments-spry-menubars.php)

the export html and insert fireworks html are for prototyping models only - they are not for production sites.
