Updating dreamweaver templates

Rated 4.48/5 based on 598 customer reviews

If you look at all the article pages on thesitewizard.com, you will probably have noticed that every page bears basically the same design.

There is a logo on the top left corner, a navigation menu spanning the left column, and the article itself occupying the right column.

You will probably not want to mark the "Header" portion as editable, since your site name will be the same no matter which page on your site your visitor happens to be on.

Likewise, the navigation menu bar in your side panel should probably also be the same throughout your website.

Whenever you modify the design of your template, whether to add new things, remove elements or modify the page in other ways, the web editor will automatically, with your permission, update all the pages on your site to that new design.

Every time we need a new page for the site, we can just base our new page on that template, and only modify the parts that are different for that new page.

This is where Dreamweaver's template tools come into play.

There are only 3 sections left on your web page that are currently not marked as editable.

The "Header", which should contain your website's name and logo, the side navigation menu bar and your "Footer", which probably currently contain your copyright notice.
