    Adopted a Website! DW says head is locked. Detach from template not available!

    afrank89 Community Member

      I recently started remodeleing a website for a local business and I am trying to update some images and use slideshows. When I try to insert widget I get the "Required links could not be added to this file because the <head> tag is in a locked region." error.  I have recently started using DW again after quite some time. Am I missing something here. I could not find a template file on the server and when I go to detatch from template the option is not available like it is not using a template. Please help. I am trying to add widget to this page:

       

      http://www.bigbearhideaway.com/blackbear.php

       

      It seems the pages get all of their attributes from here:

       

      http://www.bigbearhideaway.com/header.html

       

       

      ANY help is much appreciated!

          In your document remove all reference to templates and save the document.

           

          Instead of using DWT, use PHP's include file instead.

            I removed anything about a template in the header.html but it did nothing from what I see the pages are already using <?php include("header.html"); ?>. Any input?

                This is the exact error I am receiving:

                 

                While executing onLoad, the following JavaScript error(s) occurred:

                 

                At line 252 of file “C:\Program Files (x86)\Adobe\Adobe Dreamweaver CS6\Configuration\Commands\InsertOAWidget.html”: Required links could not be added to this file because the <head> tag is in a locked region. To insert this content, open the template file” and either unlock the <head> tag or add this content to the template.

                 

                I am trying to add FlexSlider.

                 

                Thanks

                  Open Template.dwt file in Code View.

                  Scroll down to just above the </head> tag.

                  Go to Insert > Template > Editable Region.

                  Name it "head'

                   

                  Code should resemble this:

                       <head>

                            <!-- TemplateBeginEditable name="head" -->

                            <!-- TemplateEndEditable -->

                       </head>

                   

                  Save Template.

                    Here is my issue I have no .dwt file. From what I can tell it is pulling everything from the header.html using <?php include("header.html"); ?>.

                     

                    Now the <head> header.html code is as follows:

                     

                    <head>

                    <meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=iso-8859-1">

                      I apologize -

                      We have all been asssuming that your site was built on a DW template.- it is NOT

                       

                      As you indicated a while back, the site is already using a server side include.

                       

                      All I can see wrong now, is that the header.html include file does have.a scrap of template code at lines 315-316. Remove them both and you should be fine.

                       

                      <!-- TemplateBeginEditable name="head" -->

                      <!-- TemplateEndEditable -->

                      </head>

                        I see.  It looks like a disected Template because your header include contains this:

                         

                        <!-- TemplateBeginEditable name="head" -->

                        <!-- TemplateEndEditable -->

                        </head>

                         

                        So at some point, this site was built with Templates.

                          I put this in because I was instructed to by Nancy O.

                          <!-- TemplateBeginEditable name="head" -->

                          <!-- TemplateEndEditable -->

                           

                          It was not working before I put that in and it still isn't allowing me to put in a widget now that I took it out. It still says that the region is locked.

                            What's the link to the site?

                              Nevermind.  I see the link in your original post.

                               

                              Best suggestion I can come up with is to view source in browser, copy & paste entire code into a new, blank HTML document.  Repeat with other site pages.

                              You should have no trouble editing that.
