Dreamweaver template not updating other pages
You may wonder why the instructions above tell you to click Don’t update in step 4.
The reason is that the left_file is contained in the template and in all templates and pages.
Remember, you don’t want to make everything editable, just the areas you’ll change; for example, the list of navigation links at the top of this template should not be editable regions, because then you’ll be able to update those areas on all of the pages that use this template at a later time by simply updating the template (see Step 9).6 NAME EDITABLE REGION Each time you insert an editable region into your page, you need to name it.
You can name editable regions anything you like, just don’t use spaces or special characters.
So if you clicked Update in step 4, you create a process stream that updates those files. All format*templates were created from the template. If you clicked Update in step 4, a second process stream would be created when the template was updated with the change to the left_file in order to update all the file that use this template.
I went to my site, refreshed my file and the template portion is still wrong (I’ve changed a link in my table of contents because I moved a file from a sub-directory up to the root level — not sure I’m using the correct language there). I read the article about finding all the pages that use the same template in order to ensure that my file was using that correct template. After you update your pages, any page that has changed will have to be uploaded.The Templates folder is saved at the top level of your site folder and you shouldn’t move or rename this folder.If you want to view your templates, choose Window Files and then open the Templates folder in the File panel.4 SELECT AREA TO MAKE EDITABLE Before you can use a template, you need to designate editable regions—areas that you’ll change on individual pages created from the template.Templates come in many shapes and styles on the Web.You can find templates for Adobe Flash, Photoshop, Dreamweaver, Word Press blogs, and more, but not all templates work in all programs.
