  1. I think it is because you deleted the js file that provided the functionality for the Spry widget.

     

    Does that make sense?

     

    ... I would do the basic JavaScript tutorial included with the Complete Web Designer package ... Spry, Jquery and others are all based on JavaScript, so knowing JavaScript will make it much easier to use them.

    Hi Stefan

     

    Thanks for responding

     

    I do understand what you are saying but even before I studied the codes and realize what was happening I constantly received that error whenever I accessed the site. I only deleted it after I created the the menu bar. If you remember when the rollover image was created we had to copy and paste the js in the script folder, well it did not create the code for the spry menu bar at all. I actually copy and pasted the js. code from the completed stitchintime site in order for my menu bar to work properly.

     

    Thanks for your response. I will try the javascript tutorial. I am enjoying your videos.

  2. I have been learning web design through the Complete Webdesign videos. I am at Dreamweaver Chapter 7 Part 1 - Inserting Flash and rollover image. However, I am encountering a problem which I tried researching myself. When I open the Dreamweaver Template file - stitchintime.dwt, it gives me an error message that says:

     

    The document contains Javascript code for a widget

    that no longer exists. If you don't remove the code, the

    browser might display Javascript errors when loading the page. Would you like Dreamweaver to find all instances of the code for you?

     

    Widget: var MenuBar1 = new

    Spry.Widget.MenuBar("Menubar1",

    {imgDown:"../SpryAssets/SpryMenuBarDownHover.gif",

    imgRight:"../SpryAssets/SpryMenuBarRightHover.gif"})

     

    See attached, screenshot of error message

     

    I have since realized that the stitchintime.dwt that was downloaded, the codes included the above widget (menu bar 1) and had to delete it.

     

    Also, I followed the video to create the spry menu bar but it did not create the javascript code for it, so the SpryMenuBar.js file was empty and my menu bar was not functioning like it should. I copied the codes from the SpryMenuBar.js file in the other stitchintime file (not stitchintime – start) in Chapter 7 practice files to the empty file. My menu bar now works properly.

     

    Ok, with all that said, my question is why was the script not created because without that other file I would not have known what to do. I need to know what I might have done wrong so that I would know what to do to correct it the next time around.

     

    Thanks

  3. Also -- this often happens to beginners when they are first getting started -- check to make sure your files are named properly. Both Windows and Mac by default hide the file extension, so it's possible that your file is actually named filename.html.txt rather than filename.html.

     

    Take a look at this topic and see if it helps: http://www.killersites.com/community/index.php?/topic/3010-cant-open-my-website/page__gopid__16509entry16509

     

     

    To Ben and Andrea

     

    Thanks for your help but I got through. I messed up on my file paths. This is fun, really enjoying this. I am going to now continue with learning CSS.

     

    Thanks alot

    Thanks Ben

     

    I will check out the site and check

  5. Do you actually have a file called "tablesTutorial.html" in the very same folder you main document is in? And take note - file names are case sensitive - so tablesTutorial.html is not the same as Tablestutorial.html.

     

     

    Hi Andrea

     

    Thanks for responding. The file name is tablesTutorial.html. I learnt this format from the video tutorial. I have another file name which is productList.html and it works. I can try the format you suggested to see if it works.

     

    Thanks again will check back.

  6. I have just started the Complete Web Design video tutorials. I was almost successful in completing the code for the first web site but somehow some of my links are not working on some of my pages. I will post the code for the index page below. The tables tutorial link is not working on that page. I have 2 more pages with broken links but I will wait to see what response I get here and try to fix the others if I can. I am pretty new here so I will appreciate any help that can be offered from this forum. Thanks!
