I have been working on restructuring some of my code. I did this by making an index_test.htm
I am wondering how do i make the index_test.htm into the index.htm
The main problem i am having is how to change my previous template to reflect the changes.
Here is the site:
Any help would be appreciated
There are a couple of ways you could do this. You could:
As long as the editable regions in the new main.dwt are the same as the old ones, the site should have no problem updating but maybe someone with more recent knowledge on template usage would have a better informed solution for you.
Do you know of any way that I could update the whole site rather then having to upload each individual page to display the changes.
For example if you click on contacts or any of the other links the pages don't show the changes.
When you open and save the .dwt file, it should prompt you to update all child pages. If you select yes, it should go through all pages within the site and update. You need to upload every page to the server again. But - make sure you test that the updated .dwt file has worked and that nothing else has changed on any of the pther pages before you upload them to your server. That way, if anything is wrong, you can download the unchanged server examples and try again.
darn thats what I figured :-/
Seems like dreamweaver would have had something that made that process easier. Lukily I only have 5 pages I have to upload but what about sites that have 15-20 pages that use the same template.
A content management system would be used for sites with a large number of pages. HTML pages are relatively low in filesize so uploading 15-20 after a template update would not be an issue but some people use Server Side Includes for things like navigation and the footer so they have less updates to make within the template itself.
