Dreamweaver template not updating files
Hi, I have not been able to find info to understand how this works with Expression. Then there is the whole metadata (hidden) linking thing? The page is NOT linked on purpose to the rest of the files for what reasons? Although I believe this is the very best way to go in creating ecommerce sites I don't understand why this needs to be so convoluted and difficult? Hi Normally the file is used to make global changes to all frontend store files although the home page is sometimes separate due to its different design.
I see a file under Templates but I'm not sure what its purpose is? So, I am not understanding the purpose of thought for this template or function as I have searched for explainiation only to find this is done but no epxlaination for the whys or purpose. Can you let us know which design you are working from and we can advise better. The template I am using is the Virtual CSS OUR STUFF Template.
But if the rest of the design elements vary from what the template contains, Dreamweaver will preserve those tags alongside what the template will introduce which usually creates a ton of duplicated tags and broken layouts.
Dreamweaver allows you to make changes to all template-based web pages site-wide.
Is it possible I broke a link when I put up the under construction page?
If it is global, then changing anything on the dwt home page does not reflect anywhere on any of the other pages including the identical It looks to be that all the pages are connected to the pages and NOT the dwt homepage.Margaret Corry The template tag looks fine Can you try setting up the site again in Expression Web, following the steps here https:// then if the changes to don't take, with EW still open drag the dwt file out of the Templates folder and into the web root where you have the rest of the store files, check for a prompt to update all pages with the new path. A box popped up when I went to save and all 14 files were updated. Andy Please feel free to review / rate our software Hi I opened up the original files that were downloaded. Moved the dwt file out of templates but did not ask if I agree to update paths. Expression would ask if I wanted to update 14 files.... Then when I saved, I got the message that 0 of 14 files were updated. It is not updating the other pages in the new site.
