problems with "fade in" of layers - Macromedia Dreamweaver

Hallo, I am a beginner to Dreamweaver and our Teacher couldn't help. I created a menu where layers should "get visible" on click. The uploaded files on the server work well, but the same files opened offline directly on my PC do not show the layers. There opens a new page "page could not be found". In dreamweaver mx with F12 I also get the right result. Can anybody help (my teacher can't!) I learn with w2k and iexpl5 and 6 and dreamweaver mx. thanx in advance student_p...

    Default problems with "fade in" of layers

    Hallo, I am a beginner to Dreamweaver and our Teacher couldn't help.
    I created a menu where layers should "get visible" on click.
    The uploaded files on the server work well, but the same files opened offline directly on my PC do not show the layers. There opens a new page "page could not be found".
    In dreamweaver mx with F12 I also get the right result. Can anybody help (my teacher can't!)

    I learn with w2k and iexpl5 and 6 and dreamweaver mx.

    thanx in advance

    student:

    Your problem is diagnostic for the use of ROOT RELATIVE links to the
    images -

    1. The images are shown fine when the page is previewed
    2. The images are shown fine when the page is uploaded and viewed online
    3. The images do not show when the page is viewed directly on your PC

    Please read this Technote about why this is the case and how to change from
    ROOT RELATIVE to DOENT RELATIVE links.

    P.S., Your instructor should be able to solve this one in a deep sleep.
    The answer is in your code, e.g.,

    this like will not work when viewed directly -

    <img src="/images/foo.gif">

    while this one will -

    <img src="images/foo.gif">

    Hi Murray,
    thanks for your answer but I don't think that relative links are the problem. Because there are no links to external files like pictures. I have this problem with the layers (layers are only tables with text).

    Would like to send you zipped files that you see what I mean. (Your "email" doesn't work.)
    regards

    Ulla:

    Would it be possible for you to either a) paste the code from the page into
    a reply, or b) upload the page somewhere and post a URL, please? That way,
    everyone can participate in the diagnosis rather than just me!

    The email does work if you intuit your way through the impossibly obscure
    hint in my sig about the spam trap lying in the domain name! 8)

    Hi Murray,
    it's solved.
    Danilo told me to use "javascript:;" instead of "#" - that was the only mistake.
    Tomorrow I will tell my instructor ...

    Thanks for your help.
    Bye
    Ulla
