I'm wanting to add a button on my sites dropdown menu. I was just replacing one of the links with a new one. The change will appear on the homepage where I made the change but will not show on any of the others pages of the site. How can I get this change to appear on every page of the website?

Fireworks menus were horrible 13 years ago and less than useless today.  You're using woefully outdated code and methods that can't possibly work on modern mobile & tablet devices.  CS3 is dead & gone for a reason.   I urge to replace your menus and re-build your site responsively.  Anything less will be unacceptable to modern web users.

From what you are describing you might not be using templates/includes to place your menu on your pages.  Would you be able to share a link to your page or the code for us to confirm?

 

If that is the case, then unfortunately you are going to have to update every single page that has the menu.  In this instance, I would recommend you look into the use of templates or includes.  The exact method will depend on the server technology you are using for your site.

To parse Server-Side Includes, your parent documents must be saved with the appropriate server-side script extension like .php, .aspx, .cf or .shtml.  And your server must support that scripting language.

 

This is an example of a server-side include with PHP script and file type.

This Nav bar was made using Adobe Fireworks CS3. Am I now unable to update it with Fireworks? I know fireworks is outdated but just asking. I just tried to make a change with Fireworks and I can see the change when I open my navigation_bar.htm file but when using Dreamweaver CS3 I go to Insert > Image Objects > Fireworks HTML the change does not show. Help?
