Dreamweaver template update not updating pages
Often these sites have outdated code or are badly in need of an upgrade.For years, Dreamweaver has used templates to allow an entire site to be updated at once simply by making changes to a master page.
Using a template makes the job of adding new pages to much easier than it would otherwise have been: any time I want to add a new article, all I need to do is to use that custom template and insert my article content into the right column.On most websites, the site logo and left column (containing your navigation menu) are usually considered part of the fixed design for the website.(If you're not sure what I mean, take a look at the part of thesitewizard.com's left column containing my site logo, search field and navigation menu.You will also learn how to use Dreamweaver CS5's template system to create new pages based on the custom design and layout that you've been working on in the previous chapters as well as to automate the updating of all the pages of your site when you make a design change.Finally, you will also learn how to get Dreamweaver to automatically figure out which pages of your site to upload without your having to manually open and upload every one of them.Since this is chapter 7 of the Dreamweaver CS5 Tutorial series, you will probably need to start with chapter 1 if you aren't already very familiar with Dreamweaver CS5.
I will assume knowledge of all the things I've mentioned in the previous chapters.
In addition, for those who are completely new to making a website, I strongly recommend that you read How to Make / Create Your Own Website: The Beginner's A-Z Guide first.
By the end of this chapter, you will have created nearly all the pages of your website.
If you look at all the pages on using a desktop browser, you will probably have noticed that practically every page shares the same basic layout.
There is a logo and a navigation menu in the left column, and the content specific to each page is housed in the right column.
It's exactly the same on every page of the site.) It's usually only the right column that contains variable content.
