    broken template

    caedwyne
      what could I be doing that stops a functioning template from updating files created from it after I update the template?
      I have tried updating the page and tried re-applying the template to the page but the file just ignores it and is just what it was before the template was changed. The problem is with a vertical spry menu.

          Level 7
          Here are seven common mistakes that will result in changes not propagating
          from Template to child -

          1. Rename the Templates folder
          2. Move the Templates folder to some other folder level in the site other
          than root level
          3. Move a template out of the Templates folder.
          4. Make changes to an editable region of the template (which will not
          propagate)
          5. Assume that template changes can be uploaded to the server without also
          uploading the changed local files
          6. Corrupt the site cache so that the link between template and child page
          is broken
          7, Improperly create your child pages by simply opening the template,
          adding page specific content, and resaving the template with an *.html
          extension rather that its *.dwt extension. (you can tell if this is the case
          by looking at the code on a child page - if you see anything like <!--
          TemplateBeginEditable... then this is what you have done). If you *have
          done this*, then recreate the child pages (in DWCS3) using FILE | New > Page
          from Template, select the template and click CREATE.

          The 6th problem can be repaired by using SITE | Advanced > Recreate Site
          Cache, and the six others can be fixed by just not doing them. Have you
          done any of those?
