Matthew has attended:
Dreamweaver Introduction (2 days) course



One of our websites does not appear to have the original template stored and therefore any updates effecting the standard layout have to be updated individually. Is there an easy solution to this or would it require me to basically rebuild the whole website using a template.


RE: Templates

Hi Matthew, thanks for your query. The .dwt file should have been saved into the templates folder we created, can't think why that hasn't happened! However, you don't need to rebuild the whole website. Simple open one of the pages, delete out the main oage content, resave as a template and insert an editable region. Then, once saved as a .dwt file, reapply the template to your pages. Since the template structure is the same, it should just result in a website with a working template.

Hope this helps,
