    I'm still fairly new to web design, so forgive me if this seems stupid, but...

    I've been working on a new site and I inserted a Spry menu bar under the header. After a bit of tweaking, I got it to show up great in FF, IE and chrome.
    The problem is, it's showing up wrong in Dreamweaver now. it's partially covering up another div and it's positioned where I can't click on the blue tab to edit it without selecting the header div....
    Here's what it looks like in the broswer (correct):browser.PNG

    And here's what it looks like in DW (HELP!):
    dw.PNG

    Please help! I have a deadline this weekend.

    I can actually solve this for you without having to do anything. That's how cool your problem is!

    You're using Dreamweaver's WYSIWYG editor, which in almost no way represents the way a browser would behave. You also need to remember that none of your users will ever view your site using Dreamweaver unless they're fellow web geeks trying to pick apart what you did. And since your menu looks fine in IE, FF and Chrome...guess what? You don't have to do a thing to solve your "problem" other than to stop using the WYSIWYG editor.

    Isn't it wicked cool when "do nothing" is the answer?

    Well, the problem is, I can't access the spry settings panel because the blue tab is covered up by the header div. Normally i would't worry if it showed up fine in the browser.

    I've never used Spry menu before, so I don't know if you can do this...but is there a file called config.js or something to that effect with the settings you're after?

    Game is right - the WYSIWYG in DW sucks like a black hole, but I have use Sprys before - maybe I can help you in code view.
    Are you talking about the Spry MenuBar settings? What is it you want to do to them?

    Actually, I have kind of the same problem. I am new with using spry and when I insert what I have created it messes up the whole look of things and I can't figure out what the problem is.. it looks correct to me- does it not mesh well with html/css?

    Please post links - it is almost impossible to pinpoint the problem, let alone give a possible solution, without seeing the page and the code.
