Grouping two layers in Dreamweaver

Hey guys, I'm new to the forum. I'm having a little problem so any of your assistance would be so helpful.

I'm using dreamweaver mx 2004 to make this site




I know working with layers isn't the best way to go in designing a page, but I'm just trying to get the hang of it anyway.


my situation is:


I have a layer within a layer on the right side where "NEWS" is.

In my main layer I have

- The news section

- Jettison (a show/hide link)

- and the grey panel at the bottom (a graphic).


In the 2nd layer nested within the main layer over that bottom panel.

- graphic link buttons, myspace, youtube etc.


I'm trying to group or anchor that 2nd layer with my main layer, so when you click "JETTISON (show) those buttons move down along with the panel.

I've searched google, tryed and experimented dozens of times but can't seem to get this right.

And when I go modify/convert/"Layers to table" it says "The file cannot be compatible with 3.0 browsers because it contains nested layers."


I'm somewhat of a newbie to this. Does anyone have any ideas, suggestions or solutions to this problem? it would be greatly appreciated.

happy new year!

Your page didn't activate the show/hide for JETTISON in either IE7 or Firefox and the page loaded extremely slowly.


All the files from w ww.megainsurance.com were probably the cause. I tried to download https://w ww.megainsurance.com/HM/common/js/hideshow.js

individually as this one controls the show/hide but it timed out.


Check why this is or use a simpler show/hide code like:-

ht tp://javascript.internet.com/miscellaneous/expand-collapse-paragraph.html (click the blue buttons)

as demonstrated on item 8 here:-
