    Apply Template without changing the content

    yun_yun
      Hi,

      I am kind of new to using template in Dreamweaver. I have about 10-20 html pages. They all have similar format only the contents are different. Therefore, I created a template page for those pages. I want to apply my template to those 10-20 htmls without changing the content that they already have in the editable region. Is there a way to do that? Because when I do apply template to the html page, it replaces everything of my current html page with the dummy text that I put in editable region in the template.

      Thanks in advance.

          That would not be possible assuming a) you made your template properly, and
          b) you are using the inconsistent regions dialog properly.

          But try this - spawn a new page from the template using FILE | New >
          Templates > site name > template name > Create. Copy and paste content from
          your existing page into the new one, and then save the new page with the old
          page's name. Repeat until you have done all of the pages.
