    Template result different from created page

    elgwiedo
      I am currently defining a template for a new - mainly CSS based - website.

      I used some CSS coding to define the appearance of a link in a certain div.
      When I look at the result of the template it all looks fine.
      When I create a page from the template, the default link format has gone. The :hover formatting looks OK .

      Anyone ?
      thanx

          Obviously the link to the stylesheet is not being properly managed by DW.
          Can you post a link to the page so we can see this happen and examine the
          code?

            The good news is that when published to the website, it renders fine. So only on my local system it does not ....

              As stated previously,

              Can you post a link to the page so we can see this happen and examine the
              code?

                The key info is exactly how are you creating this new page?

                dw menu->File->New
                In new file dialog box, click the Templates Tab
                in left column, click this Site
                in right column, click this template.
                make sure checkmark is in lower right box to "update" then click okay.

                now save the new file to within the site and add content to the editable
                areas.
