How to test a website locally

If you are testing the page locally you may receive a Flash Player security warning or you won’t see the submenus. This is normal and it happens because the Creative Menu uses both Flash and JavaScript and Flash Player is trying to communicate with the web page it resides on (which is not permitted by the default Flash Player security settings if the page is a local one).

This warning will not appear if the website is on a web server.

In order to test locally you have to configure your security settings to trust the content that resides in your web site's folder.\

1. As you start creating your menu, click the “Preview” tab and right-click on the menu displayed; follow the “Settings” option.

Open the Flash player settings

3. Now, depending on your Flash version, the location where you will be redirected may vary; the idea is that you have to look for the option that says “Global Security Settings panel”.

4. Now we have almost finished; in the panel that appeared last, you have to introduce the location(s) where you will work, as trusted locations.

5. The last thing you have to do is either manually type the path or browse for it; the idea is that it should appear as a trusted location.
