I was wondering if it was possible to nest Dreamweaver library items? I know DW will LET you do it… but will it cause problems with style or updates?
What I am trying to do is create a simple way to update multilevel menus cross site. I was thinking if I created each menu as library item. and i included the library of the lower level items within the higher levels it might make the logistics of site maintenance easier.
I tried to help a non-coding friend work with Libraries recently, but heck, it’s a lot easier just to use straight code. It’s much easier to use PHP includes for a menu. You create the menu once with an include, and it appears on all pages, so you only need to update it in one place. Simple and straightforward; no Dw mess.
I agree. I was trying to bid on a contract for which the client wanted to be able to update the website ( and have “versions” … whatever that means) w/o using a CMS, thus no PHP), yeah. Anyway, I thought it would be easy for a layman, as far as updating navigation if I nested the list which made up the menus.
The problem is that DW nested libraries dont block editing correctly. This is no big to me, I understand the code, but I was relying on being able to deliver code that could not be altered by the client by merely using the DW WYSIYG…
