    Corupt Template, Other Problem?..

    PAB1953 Level 1
      Okay, here's the situation:

      Been working happily for several weeks with a DW MX site on a PC under XP. Building a site, currently about 115 pages, all derived from a single template.

      Now get error messages preventing me from working on the pages. One message reads thus:

      <<Making this change would require changing code that is locked by a template or a translator. The change will be discarded.>>

      The part of the page I was working on was an editable region I've been working on with no problems for six weeks.

      Here's another error message:

      <<While executing DWMenu_Edit_Paste command in menus.xml, the following JavaScript error(s) occurred: "TypeError:MM.event has no properities.">>

      I've just tried working on two other sites and I'm getting similar weird behavior to above.

      Oh and one more thing: browser preview doesn't show browsers selected.

      Hmm. Sounds like a corrupt program? I only installed it about two months ago.

      Rebooting didn't help.

      Any ideas?

          A single template is good, but 115 pages is on the edge of suitability for
          template use, in my experience. Have you considered also using server-side
          includes?

          This error message is something of a red herring in that ANY coding error on
          the page will cause DW to throw it, rather than anything specifically in the
          editable region. Can you show me your template page?

          This one troubles me. Which DW are you using? What DW extensions have you
          installed? Is it possible that you have installed a DW4 only extension?

            Hi Murray,

            I ended up reinstalling DW (MX) and the problems disappeared. Of course the question remains about what caused them and if they'll return.

            I didn't realize there was an upper limit on how many pages you can make from a template. I must say I hold my breath every time I update the (now 125) pages. I'm exploring MySQL and WordPress.

            Thanks.

              Given the hiccups that DMX has with templates one never knows. I really
              encourage you to upgrade to DW8 if you can. But at the least, please make
              sure that you have updated to DMX6.1.

              The limit is only a practical one, not a real one. When you get beyond
              about 100 pages, you spend lots of time (too much time) updating pages, and
              uploading the changes....
