DWT and master links in spry menu

Apr 6, 2013 7:41 AM

I read this great article on setting up DWT
http://helpx.adobe.com/dreamweaver/kb/paths-dreamweaver-templates.html

 

But can't seem to find out how, when new pages are created using DWT,
the spry menu (already existing on the master DWT) can "automatically" be linked to the new pages.

 

Newbie question, isn't it...

    Hi -

     

    When a DW Template spawns a new child page, it lays down all the code in the non-editable areas of the page.  This would include any required links to the SpryAssets folder.

    As I said,

    all the code in the non-editable areas of the page would be inserted into the child pages.  Obviously, your template would have to include links to all the planned pages, whether they have been created yet or not.

    It also "lays down" all the code in the editable areas of the page, too. The child page becomes an exact copy of the template page with the exception of the links and the template markup.

    As you create new pages to be added to the menu, you will have to edit the menu on the template page to propagate those changes to the exisiting child pages.

    EVERYTHING on a template page is editable. The template regions only have any effect on child pages where only the editable regions are editable.
