I have just taken delivery of a Dreamweaver website from the
developer. It’s very simple with a dwt template file, a css file
and 7-8 top level HTML pages. I’m very happy with the design, and
Dreamweaver 8 too (which I’ve never used until now). However, I
noticed (too late) that the nav bar is a little different from what
I’m used to (both as a user and webmaster).
Unlike the website as delivered, I would prefer the
navigation bar text link for the current page to be highlighted and
disabled. This is default behaviour in Front Page and pretty much
all websites that I work with or visit. If it can’t be disabled, it
should at least be highlighted (it’s an important visual cue IMHO).
Currently, nav text is highlighted on mouseover, but I don’t really
care about that one way or the other.
Is there a way to make this behaviour the global default for
all pages (existing and new) by changing something in the D8
template? Or in the css? I don’t want to have to adjust this
behaviour page by page, of course.
Any assistance appreciated. I did search for this issue but
didn’t find it; apologies if it has been covered.
The website as delivered can be seen in test mode here:
DW does not have a built-in way to do that. It can be done
methods, but it is far more easily accomplished with my FREE
Extension called divaGPSfree:
It works just fine with template based pages, so I think
perfect for your needs.
