    Problem with dreamweaver cc template when applying to existing pages

    Kermit1221

      I am trying to apply a newly-made dreamweaver template to a newly-created page. The problem is, when I try to do so, my document body and document head show up in the dialogue box as editable regions, even though I only have one tag (the h2 tag for the "Page Name") set to be editable. Did I do something wrong when creating my template, or am I missing something else. Here is the code of my template page (very simple at this point):

       

       

         

       

      Home

       

                

             

      Thanks for any help!

          I can see you don't know how to paste a code here right?

           

          We can't see a thing to what you have posted so you won't get any help here.  We don'

          t like telling you "what you should do and what you shouldn't do" without seeing your code.  However, there is always somebody who will venture into this without the code. What you will get under this circumstances is copy and paste of their canned answer which you won't  understand.

           

          Good luck.

            A properly created DW template should have at least TWO editable regions, both in the head of the page:

             

            1. A region called "doctitle" around the <title> tag

            2. A region called "head" located just above the </head> tag

             

            In addition it will have any number of other editable regions defined by you as you build out the body of the page.

             

            So - that's the story on properly created templates. Now, I don't understand your issue - what do you mean by "my document body and document head show up in the dialogue box as editable regions"?

              I am trying to apply a newly-made dreamweaver template to a newly-created page.

               

              The procedure is:

              1. File > New > Page from Template. 
              2. Select the Template you want to use. 
              3. Hit Create button. 
              4. This  is a child page -- SaveAs filename.html.
              5. Repeat for additional site pages.
