Templates for existing pages

Advertisement
November 30

If I have an index.shtml page, that has some flash, and
dropdown menus, and on the left, a menu created in fireworks that I
exported into DW. The middle portion is the only area that changes
from page to page.
I want to make a template. These are the steps I have taken:
1. Open index.shtml
2. Save as template
3. Make the region in the middle "Editable"
Then apply template to page "Index"
Once I do this I can't edit anything, its locked?
Where am I going wrong. s it the way I have my layout tables
and cells.
I can't figure it out/
Thanks,
Greg

You have the wrong procedure. Never apply a template to a
page with
existing content (well, if you can avoid it, and it sounds
like you can).
Spawn the child page first, and then add your content to the
child page.

Sure editable regions should be editable. If you can't see
your content,
then something is wrong with your method or your code or
both.

We'd need to see the page to comment on this.
