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.
It's not the links to spry folder I'm worried about. How do the professionals set up the job so that the new pages are automatically linked in the spry menu? Example:
DWT master with spry menu (note no page links exist on the menu now because the other pages (ABOUT, INFO, PRODUCTS, for example) aren't created yet.
If I spin off 10 pages using the master DWT -- do all 10 pages need to be linked in each page menu separately?
I'm sure I'm missing something in the way professionals set up their jobs.
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.
Thanks --- what a great time saver.
So non-editable is still editable on the master DWT and it flows through all child pages.
One of these days I'm going to "get" it and it'll start making sense...
EVERYTHING on a template page is editable. The template regions only have any effect on child pages where only the editable regions are editable.
