    Editing templates

    Princess_Toadstool
      Hi,

      I am editing a website (designed by someone before me) and it has a number of pages (about 25). The top navigational menus are linked to templates when created. I need to edit the part created in the template, as it is in the grey text in the coding screen, but it wont let me, and when I go to Modify>Template, it comes up with an error message. "Error accessing file etc"

      The guy before me saved the templates somewhere seperate, but when I move them back into the correct folder, the sdame happens. Is there anything I can do?
      At the top of the code screen, it says: codeOutsideHTMLIsLocked="false"

          How many templates are there?

          Are they in the Templates folder at the root of the site?

          Are you making your modifications to the menu in the Template file?

            HI, (sorry I tried to email you this earlier)


            I read your posts about templates:


            http://www.adobe.com/cfusion/webforums/forum/messageview.cfm?catid=189&threadid=1135063&hi ghlight_key=y&keyword1=editing%20templates



            That guy was a bot dumb, I can see where you are coming from and how he wasn’t listening to you. I have a similar problem, however I have located the original templates (stored somewhere else by previous designer). I have moved these into the correct place, the original templates are editiable, but the child pages don’t change. Is there some extra code I can add to the grey coding that will update them to be the same as the parent templates again?



            Thanks,
            Simone

            PS, In answeer to your questions,

            There are 4 (all pretty similar) templates for each section of website,

            see http://www.oldfields.com.au/ to know what I mean. Yep, I am trying to make modifications to the template files whic pretty much only contain the menus

              I prefer you keep your discussion on this public forum rather than emailing
              me....

              > the original templates are editiable, but the child pages
              > don?t change.

              Can you spawn a new child page from the templates?

              Are you making changes to editable or non-editable regions of the templates?

                Hi,

                I have the 4 different templates, and they are all editable and I can make spawn ones from them. The changes I need to make are to the top horizontal menu with the blue buttons.

                Because these buttons are on all the pages, I just want to be able to edit the original, and somehow all the pages can update....

                If you go to http://www.oldfields.com.au/holdings/profile.htm you will see that all the grey buttons on the vertical menu link to seperate pages that incluse the same top banner&horizontal buttons.

                  When I go to 'Modify/ and "Templates', it come up with an error message "Error accessing file; Bad file path (error code 3)
                  • 6. Re: Editing templates
                    Princess_Toadstool Level 1
                    And when I click on the template name in design view in top right corner, there is a circle with a line through it. The templates are in the right place though.

                      Yes, I can make a new child from the template, but when I am in the files, I can't modify the template that is within the file. If I edit the image button images, They change, so the links to the images are working, but I need to change more stuff within the templates. So no matter how much I change the actual template files themselves, all the files that have been created already wont update.

                            The person before me kept the original 4 template files in a seperate folder to where we keep the exact copies of the web files that get uploaded onto the server...could this be a problem? Should I be editing the tempate files where they were originally? Its just that he kept them in a strange place in his personal folder, away from all the other files...


                            On the directory of files on the actual server, I can't seem to find the templates files at all. Does this mean all the pages on the live server link to the templates on my computer????

                              Um, I found this in a notepad file within the eact copy of website files. It mentions the template files, does it mean anything? I will copy and paste it here:

                                In DW, choose SITE | Manage Sites. Find the name of your site in the list,
                                select it, and click on Edit.

                                The first page that opens should be the Local site definition. What is in
                                the Local Root folder field? Where is the Templates folder in relation to
                                that local root folder?

                                How do you happen to be the one doing this? Have you recently inherited
                                this responsibility?

                                  Where is that folder relative to the root folder of the site? By "root
                                  folder", I mean the topmost folder that contains *all* the files within the
                                  site.

                                  > Its just that he kept them in a strange place in his

                                  Did you move them out and place them somewhere else?

                                  > On the directory of files on the actual server, I can't seem to find the

                                  Templates only function locally. There is no reason that they be uploaded
                                  to the server.

                                  > Does this mean all the pages on the live server link
                                  > to the templates on my computer????

                                  Yes, but that's immaterial. The link is non-functional on the server - it's
                                  just an HTML comment.

                                    I wouldn't worry about this just now.

                                      Hey there...

                                      "In DW, choose SITE | Manage Sites. Find the name of your site in the list,
                                      select it, and click on Edit." - cool, but in the Manage sites window, there are no files coming up on the list, just the buttons on the side of of it... the only useable ones (not greyed out) are the following 4 buttons: New... Import... help and done.



                                      "How do you happen to be the one doing this? Have you recently inherited
                                      this responsibility?" - Oh yeahhhh! :( the person who made it left this job about 5 months ago... and I have to make updates for the client. No one in the IT departments can help... they've got no idea about dreamweaver

                                        Then this means that you do not have a site defined, and that would explain
                                        why your templates are not working (and why other things will not work,
                                        either). You must define at least a local site to work in DW.

                                        I really recommend that you spend some time to at least go through the
                                        tutorials in DW - especially since you could do irreparable damage to your
                                        site without knowing something about DW. A good book on HTML wouldn't hurt,
                                        either.....

                                          cool thanks

                                          So does that mean it is possible to define them after the site is created, and would the site work then?

                                            Templates consist of fixed code, and editable regions. Generally speaking the
                                            fixed code should define the look and feel of the page, while the editable
                                            regions contain material that changes from page to page. You can't change
                                            anything in the fixed part when you're working on a file derived from a
                                            particular template, but subsequent changes to the fixed part of the template
                                            will affect all the files derived from it.

                                            On the other hand, you can change the material in the editable region of the
                                            page, but once you have defined the page, changes inside the editable region of
                                            the template will have no effect on the page. From what you say, it sounds as
                                            if you may be talking about material inside the editable regions.

                                            You may be interested to have a look at
                                            http://www.corybas.com/Technical/Nested.htm where I talk about using nested
                                            templates.

                                              a comment from someone looking in on this conversation-

                                              you linked your article advocating using dreamweaver nested templates to a
                                              person who hasn't "defined a site" yet.

                                              Nested templates are grenades in your pocket for many users in my opinion.
                                              Suggesting a new user read about them when they haven't yet grasped what a
                                              "site" is in dreamweaver is inviting them to play with matches while filling
                                              the car with gas.

                                                anyways, with the files on the actual server, the template files aren't on the server at all, if you look at http://www.oldfields.com.au/treco/index.htm the template parts are nested in there (at the top of the code, uneditable grey text in DW) but he hasn't kept the template files on the server. hey are on my hard drive.

                                                  Templates shouldn't be on the server. So far as Dreamweaver is concerned,
                                                  templates should be in the subdirectory 'Templates' in your site on the local
                                                  hard disk. Then, if you edit a template, when you save it Dreamweaver should
                                                  ask something to the effect of "template is used in files ..... Do you want to
                                                  update them?" You say "yes" and all the files on your hard disk using that
                                                  template should be updated. Then you have to upload them again. The server
                                                  doesn't know anything about templates; it only gets a "compiled file" from
                                                  Dreamweaver, based on the template.

                                                  For example, the root directory for my site "Corybas" is d:\Websites\Corybas.
                                                  The templates are in d:\Websites\Corybas\Templates. In Dreamweaver, click
                                                  "Site" on the top line (Toolbar?) If your site appears, good, otherwise click
                                                  new site, and go through the rigmarole to define your site.

                                                  Good luck!

                                                    I am afraid that Princess Toadstool is trying to drive without knowing how
                                                    to walk.

                                                    She has been given the task of maintaining this website with no knowledge of
                                                    HTML and with no knowledge of Dreamweaver.

                                                    I forecast a troubling future for this project.

                                                    Princess Toadstool, I am not trying to be mean or harsh, but I am
                                                    dumbfounded at your complete lack of understanding of what you are about.
                                                    We can help you a bit, but you MUST go through some resources on HTML, and
                                                    web development, as well as the tutorials in Dreamweaver before you touch
                                                    this site again.

                                                    Sorry to be so candid....

                                                      > hard drive.

                                                      So, do this:

                                                      1) define a "site" in dreamweaver

                                                      1a) for the Local Site Folder, pick the local folder where the site files
                                                      are. IF you don't have a copy of the site locally, then define the Local
                                                      Site Folder to a new empty folder on your computer.

                                                      1b)enter the ftp information for the remote server. Test and connect to see
                                                      that it works.

                                                      1c) Expand the Files Panel. Connect to the remote site.
                                                      Are the html files showing in the remote side? Or are there some folders
                                                      named similar to httpdocs or public_html or www or similar? Look in those
                                                      folders and find the one with the site files. Then go back to edit this site
                                                      definition, and enter that exact folder name into the "host directory" line
                                                      of the remote server information.

                                                      1d) If you don't have current local copies of the files, select the remote
                                                      files and GET them.

                                                      2) in the root (top) level of this Local Site Folder
                                                      Make a new folder named exactly
                                                      Templates
                                                      Now go to where the .dwt files are on the computer. Copy the files and put
                                                      them into the Templates folder.

                                                      Open the templates one by one and do a link check...
