Dreamweaver 8 template not updating pages
Unfortunately, novice users often fail to implement templates correctly causing themselves a lot of frustration and extra work rather than saving time and effort.
Not sure if you’re still monitoring this for questions, but just in case…I went to my site, refreshed my file and the template portion is still wrong (I’ve changed a link in my table of contents because I moved a file from a sub-directory up to the root level — not sure I’m using the correct language there). I read the article about finding all the pages that use the same template in order to ensure that my file was using that correct template. After you update your pages, any page that has changed will have to be uploaded.So after changing the link in my template, the link is not changed in my index file. Remember only those elements from the template that are not in editable regions will be updated.My site uses a template which holds a banner image at the top and a Table Of Contents down the left side of every page.
I updated the template file “mmuuf generic template.dwt” (and uploaded that file to the server — even though after reading your article I now realize I didn’t need to).
A way to do this is copy the site over to another drive that is accessible to others in the company I'm working in.
