    Question My Buttons Don't Work

    I dont know anything about web design, but I'm trying.

    I've downloaded a free template, and I am editing it, I have created to pages 'About Us' & ' Contact Us' and I have linked the buttons using the link tool at the bottom of dreamweaver.

    But when I view it in the broswer, I can click one page, e.g. Contact Us, but I cant click another, so it wont go back. So I am limited to clicking one page at the moment, and I cant understand why.

    I am using dreamweaver, in design view.

    Thanks in advance

    Hello Conteo,
    Could be anything and we have no way of guessing.
    It would be best if you uploaded it and gave us a link but if you can't do that then you must copy/paste your code in a message for us.
    Validate often DURING development - Use it like a splelchecker | Debug during Development |Write it for FireFox, ignore IE
    Use the right DocType | Validate your markup | Validate your CSS | Why validating is good | Why tables are bad

    All the buttons are linked to aboutus.html
    Code:
    <h2 class="sidelink menuheader"><a id="sitemenu"></a>Site menu:</h2>
    <a class="sidelink" href="aboutus.html">About Us </a>
    <span class="hide"> | </span>
    <a class="sidelink" href="aboutus.html">Contact Us </a>
    <span class="hide"> | </span>
    <a class="sidelink" href="aboutus.html">Services </a>
    <span class="hide"> | </span>
    <a class="sidelink" href="aboutus.html">Links </a>
    <span class="hide"> | </span>
    <a class="sidelink" href="aboutus.html">Products </a>
    <span class="hide"> | </span>
    <a class="sidelink" href="index.html">Home</a>
    <span class="hide"> | </span>
    <a class="hide" href="#top" accesskey="1">Top of page</a>

    Make it look like this instead:
    Code:
    <div id="sidebar">
    
    <h2 class="sidelink menuheader"><a id="sitemenu"></a>Site menu:</h2>
    <a class="sidelink" href="aboutus.html">About Us </a>
    <span class="hide"> | </span>
    <a class="sidelink" href="contactus.html">Contact Us </a>
    <span class="hide"> | </span>
    <a class="sidelink" href="services.html">Services </a>
    <span class="hide"> | </span>
    <a class="sidelink" href="Links.html">Links </a>
    <span class="hide"> | </span>
    <a class="sidelink" href="Products.html">Products </a>
    <span class="hide"> | </span>
    <a class="sidelink" href="index.html">Home</a>
    <span class="hide"> | </span>
    <a class="hide" href="#top" accesskey="1">Top of page</a>

    Instead of having to goto each of those 6 pages to update your menu you could use a server side include to load your menu. That way you would be able to edit the menu once and it would show globally.
