    Template

    jccs3 Level 1
      Hello everyone,

      I converted a site from GL6 to DWCS3 which contained templates that I built. For some reason DW won't let me edit the titles on new pages tied to the templates.

      I've tried using Make Attribute Editable under Modify/Templates following the instructions in the help, but it still doesn't let me do it.

      This is the code it came up with...

      <head>
      <meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=iso-8859-1">
      <title title="@@(title)@@"></title>
      <meta http-equiv="imagetoolbar" content="no">
      <link href="../view_table_font.css" rel="stylesheet" media="screen">
      <link href="../view_table_font.css" rel="stylesheet" media="screen">
      <!-- TemplateParam name="title" type="text" value="" -->
      </head>

      Would any one know a way around this?

      Thanks in advance.

          You don't want an editable attribute, you want to surround the title tags
          with an editable region.

          <!DOCTYPE HTML PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD HTML 4.01
          Transitional//EN">
          <html>
          <head>
          <!-- TemplateBeginEditable name="doctitle"
          -->
          <title>Untitled Document</title>
          <!-- TemplateEndEditable --><meta
          http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=iso-8859-1">
          <!--
          TemplateBeginEditable name="head" --><!-- TemplateEndEditable -->
          </head>

            Wrong method. The right way is to make the template properly in the first
            place - converting from GL is most likely the cause.

            Try this -

            1. Create a new, blank page
            2. Use FILE | Save as Template, and save it
            3. Look at the code around the title tag
            4. Edit your template page's title tag so that it looks the same
