Template Problem

Jan 4, 2013 11:20 AM

I am very new to Dreamweaver and have inherited a website from a real web developer. I'm not sure which version of DW she used. I have CS6. I can't seem to get the old templates to update. I can edit the template, but the associated pages are not getting updated. When I try to manually update, I get this error.


I have no idea what is wrong with this template. I don't see any issues at line 26, column 29. I can't find duplicate editable regions.

Can someone please take a look and give me some advice. The code for the template is below.


Thanks, Dawn

    <h1>Overview: </h1>

    <p>iSpecimen, a privately held company, provides laboratories and hospitals a new way to make further, profitable use of their valuable clinical material while offering medical researchers with timely, high-quality and data-rich biospecimens for their research programs. The company does this through their proprietary technology that links electronic medical records (EMRs) and clinical laboratory specimens at partner hospitals and laboratories to provide researchers with a steady supply of customized, annotated specimens. While maintaining full legal and regulatory compliance, the company’s proprietary solution can retrieve desired samples from the millions of specimens flowing through clinical labs each day – samples that otherwise would get discarded and lost to research. </p>

    <h4>Benefits to Customers: </h4>

    <p>iSpecimen’s technology provides medical researchers with high quality, data-rich biospecimens without the high cost and lengthy procurement times necessitated by CROs and biobanks. Customers from a range of research organizations - including academic institutions, government facilities, and biopharmaceutical/diagnostic companies – can significantly advance their translational research in a cost-effective manner with the iSpecimen solution. </p>

    <h4>Benefits to Partners:</h4>

    <p>iSpecimen’s partners – which include hospitals and clinical laboratories – increase their bottom line profitability by receiving a commission on each biospecimen delivered to customers while knowing they are helping to advance medical research. In addition, partner hospitals bolster their competitiveness for outside research and grant funding through their steady supply of annotated biospecimens and their enhanced patient database that are included as part of the iSpecimen system. </p>

    It's not a Dreamweaver template.  That's the first thing I notice.  I can tell because of this line:


    <meta name="MSSmartTagsPreventParsing" content="TRUE">


    That's a Frontpage/Expression Web template.  DWT is actually just a Dynamic Web Template, not a Dreamweaver Web Template although that is sometimes implied.  Also from your post, that appears to be a page based off a template and not the template itself.  Can you please post the file in the Templates folder called two_column.dwt.

    Try fixing the minor coding errors:


    -All meta tags should end with /> instead of just > since it is XHTML.

    -Line 45 there is a </p> that doesn't have a <p> before it so just remove it.

    -Line 72 there is an extra </a> that is not needed.


    Full details - (run your site through this)


    Then resave the document as a template within your site so DW thinks its DW markup instead of the MS markup.  If that doesn't work, you may want to remove that MS line I eluded to earlier as that in the header and could be conflicting with what DW is looking for.
