How to remove <!--InstanceBeginEditable name="docTitle"--> from title

May 5, 2009 5:29 PM

I just migrated an Adobe GoLive CS2 site with templates to Adobe Dreamweave CS4.  The conversion looks fine, except every page's title bar in a browser (IE or Firefox) shows <!--InstanceBeginEditable name="docTitle"--> preceding the title.  I appear to not be the only one since a google search turns up many websites with this same issue.  Following another thread, I was able to remove it by Modify>Templates>Export without Markup, but this appears to get rid of the connection to the template.

I recognize this is a comment to delimit where edits can be made on a non-template page, but there must be a way to not have it appear in a browser.


Here are a few of random websites that show the issue I'm facing in their title bar -


Thanks for help with this perplexing issue...

    This is a problem caused by someone running before they have learned to walk.  One of the pages you linked has this -


    <title><!-- InstanceBeginEditable name="DocTitle" -->Letter of Intent<!-- InstanceEndEditable --></title>

    The proper syntax for that *would* be this -


    <!-- InstanceBeginEditable name="DocTitle" --><title>Letter of Intent</title>
    <!-- InstanceEndEditable -->

    In other words, the <title> tag SHOULD be inside the Template markup, not the other way around.  DW doesn't do this.  Inexperienced operators do.


    If you are having the same problem, make this change in the TEMPLATE page -


    <!-- TemplateBeginEditable name="DocTitle" --><title>Letter of Intent</title>
    <!-- TemplateEndEditable -->


    and when you save the page, all of your child pages will be healed.

    This problem is a result of the conversion using the AbobeGoLive extension...


    Really?  Can you verify that?  If so, the team should know about it....
