Default Pop up menu's in templates

Hi all,

I'm building a site based on a template that I've constructed and in my navigation I had the intension of making sub menu's from my main menu much like chapter 3 pg.94 in Beginning Dreamweaver MX. However this behavior is greyed out when working with the template. I also created a new page based on the template and is still greyed out. So I'm assuming that the pop-up menu behavior is not available in a template or pages that are based on a template.
Can anyone confirm this and if so can I get around it in code view.

Thanks

Hmmm, interesting. I tried this, and indeed the menu option is grayed out.
However, it is still possible to add the menu, AFAIK. Try this:

1. Create a new HTML page
2. Add everything you need to the template, like Editable Regions, and other default stuff
3. Choose File | Save as Template

This way, you add the menu before you convert the page to a template. Dreamweaver seems smart enough to recognize the link to mm_menu.js and will update the links for any pages you create based on this template.

I am not sure why you are not allowed to add the menu to a template. There may be a good reason for this, so the work around I suggested may get you into troubles, although as far as I can see, it should just work.

Cheers,

Imar

Thanks for the quick response Imar,

I did a basic test with your suggestion and indeed it works ;)
I will continue this way and if I encounter any problems I'll let you know.

Thanks
