View Full Version : cs4 dreamweaver live view images not working

02-24-2011, 12:24 AM
Here is my problem. I am designing a website for a class project, and in the design view my background images (in my #nav) and colors are showing up, but in live view they are not. Also my footer link text is not changing in live view on hover. I have no idea what I am doing wrong. I am including the coding for both the page I am working on and the css. If anyone can give me an idea of what I am doing wrong I would greatly appreciate it.

To begin with, fix your css id's for H1 & copywritetext; both are missing the # designator for ID

I fixed those but still have the same problem. Thanks for pointing them out to me.

actually h1 is an html tag so it doesn't need a # in front of it. And the <h1> tag doesn't appear to be used on the page anyway.

copyrighttext as used is a custom html tag which is allowed (although I'm not sure how well supported it is).

Neither appear to be the problem here.

I can't see the problem with your background-image although perhaps it would be easier to find if you uploaded the page and posted a link.

As for the footer links, your rollover colors worked fine when I used your code in a page.

#nav css: is bannerwlogo the correct name of the file? shouldn't matter since you say they work in design but just curious...
