    Template inside a template

    AirParker
      I'm building this site, the site has many pages inside, so i've decided
      wisely(i think) to create a templates which will create the pages in
      order to save alot of time in creating new pages and updating main
      things like design and general changes.
      There is a main template which contains the the basic page, + the
      constant upper navbar.
      In that template there are a few editable areas.
      Now I want to create another template which will be created from the
      main template, so every change i'll want to do in the main design will
      be done only once in the main template, but I don't want the editable
      areas in the main template to be editable in the sub template.

      To make it a bit more clrear :

      -The main template has the navbar and the main layout of the entire
      web-site ( every page in the site will have that look).
      -The editable areas on main tempalte are the sub navbar, page name
      layer, page body layer and the right navbar layer - the only reason
      those areas are editable is so i'll be able to edit them in the pages i
      created from the sub template.

      -The sub template will be created from the main template, here i want
      to have diffrent areas editable inside the pagebody, and the main part
      is that i want the rest of the editable areas not to be editable
      anymore - cuz if they are editable, after i make a change inside an
      editable area in the sub menu it won't update the rest of the pages
      since those areas are editable.

      So is it possible to create such templates? if so plz let me know how,
      or if u have any other ideas\suggestions.

      P.S
      I know i can use a library but I preffer it all to happen in the
      template - if its possible.

          Yes, in DW6+ it is. But nested templates get very complex very quickly.
          What you describe can be done with a single template. I see no reason to
          consider nesting them....

            I'm pretty sure it can't be done with 1 template, there are so many diffrent pages, and i dont want to repeat myself codeing the exact same thing each and every time.

            Btw libraries are not a good idea now that i think of that, cuz i want be able to insert a editable area there, and i need one

                AirParker Level 1
                Its in hebrew but just look at the main content:

                http://38.113.149.34/teams/maccabi_tel_aviv.html

                and other exmple is:

                http://38.113.149.34/news.html

                this page has pics and very specific format, if u'd load the page into DW8 u'll see, right now the page is empty (and i'm in a really short on time) but see it full with data, u'll understand my point.

                and there are many many other pages...

                Btw there is a way to create a neasted template? is that a specific template class? or just createing a template from a template makes it neasted?

                  Ahh - the dreaded HALO. Try this - slide your page UP until the top of the
                  navbar is just at the top of the browser viewport. Now mouse over the menus.
                  Do you see the subglobals? I didn't think so....

                  I don't see any compelling reason to use nested templates here. You can
                  easily handle these different layouts with some ordinary CSS manipulation
                  and server-side includes.

                      Not easily using that method. But you can read about the details of that
                      menu here -
                      http://www.macromedia.com/devnet/mx/dreamweaver/articles/dissecting_halo.html

                      If it were me, I'd rip that whole menu system out and use something a bit
                      more traditional and functional. Simple show/hide menus would work, but if
                      you want a more contemporary approach with more semantic markup, you could
                      go for TabMenuMagic from PVII ( http://www.projectseven.com/), or for one of
                      the MiniMenus from FourLevel ( http://www.fourlevel.com)
