    Efficient use of Fireworks??


    Sorry for the FW thread, but I'm not sure??

    Does anyone know how to use fireworks menus in other web pages efficiently?

    I understand how to include the .html export from fw.
    BUT... Is there a way to use fw anywhere within a web page without
    having to exactly locate the menu so it appears where you need it on
    other pages.

    A specific example: I am trying to centralize a source menu that could
    be used for several pages. On these several pages the location is
    different, so the way I'm doing it now is useless??

    The problem or lack of knowledge I have is that the menu pops-up in the exact same place no matter even if I want the menu to
    locate differently. Can someone please help

    Thanks...

    I've never used fireworks, but can you post a little of the code that it's giving you? Don't post the whole thing if it's long, just the parts that you think have something to do with the positioning of the menu.

    they use absolute positioning:

    They only work around I can think of is to insert the navigation on your other page. Then copy the JavaScript file (.js) that fireworks creates for you. If you look at that code of the .js file you should see a couple lines that say something like position:absolute;left:0;top:0; change those to where you want your drop downs. Then change the line in your html that calls the .js file:
    this line...
    <script language="JavaScript1.2" src="fw_menu.js"></script>
    change to
    <script language="JavaScript1.2" src="fw_menu2.js"></script>

    repeat as neccessary
