template changes killing Open Browser Window - Macromedia Dreamweaver

Hi, I have a page that has the "Open Browser Window" behavior applied to a link. Does anyone know why changing a template and reapplying it to the page is killing this script? It is driving me crazy trying to get this to work. Ithink it is removing the following lines of code before the page head. <!-- function MM_openBrWindow(theURL,winName,features) { //v2.0 window.open(theURL,winName,features); } Does anyone know how to stop this from happening??? I am using ASP Javascript pages. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!...

    Default template changes killing Open Browser Window

    Hi,

    I have a page that has the "Open Browser Window" behavior applied to a link.

    Does anyone know why changing a template and reapplying it to the page is killing this script? It is driving me crazy trying to get this to work.

    Ithink it is removing the following lines of code before the page head.

    <!--
    function MM_openBrWindow(theURL,winName,features) { //v2.0
    window.open(theURL,winName,features);
    }

    Does anyone know how to stop this from happening???

    I am using ASP Javascript pages.

    Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    Thanks!

    -> It depends which version of Dreamweaver you're using. MX should permit you to apply a behaviour and it should store the function in an editable region in the head of the child page. DW4 won't do that.

    I am using DW MX.

    -> You can either apply the behaviour to a dummy link in the template so the function is written to the head of the template (and will then be available in all child pages), or you can put any JavaScript functions you need in an external file, and link it to the main template (again making those functions available to all child pages).

    I will try to apply the behaviour to a dummy link in the template, but can understand the benefit of putting it in an external file.

    -> Putting your functions in an external file is probably the best solution for any version of DW.

    Sorry, I'm a little new at this. Can you tell me how this is done?

    Thanks,
    Steve
