View Full Version : How do I update the links on a linkset across all pages in the webpage???

I did not set this up.

We currently have an intranet and the navigation has a drop down menu, which is a linkset or a popitmenu. When we update the link on the index page it does not update globally. Is there a way to do this? Or would we have to go to each active page and update the linkset manually?

Our experience is minimal in the coding world. We are currently using Dreamweaver. Any help would be much appreciated? Should we have used a different nav coding? A "spry"?... idk...

Generally, there's no magic bullet that will change all pages across a site.

*IF* the site was constructed in a modular fashion, then you might find that your navigation is a separate module. This is especially common on sites created using server-side technologies such as ASP/JSP/ASP.NET/PHP.

And it can be done with JavaScript. If so, you'd expect to find all your navigation (or other modules) created using

<script type="text/javascript" src="navigation.js"></script>
or similar (that actual src= would be up the creator of the menu).

But it sounds like you've probably already discovered that your site was not done in that way, and you may indeed be stuck changing all the pages.

What can we say, except that you get what you pay for?
