Currently I'm using the Adobe CS4 Web Premium Suite on a Mac. I've been using Dreamweaver for a very long time but just recently I started to build templates for Contribute and it's been working fine, however, I need help resolving an issue.
After designing the template, setting the Editable Regions and saving it as a template in Dreamweaver, I upload it to production and can edit the page with contribute successfully. However, when I update non-editable regions on the template, overwite the files using that template and publish those files to production, it overwrites any content updates the user makes via Contribute.
Am I missing a step? Any suggestions why this is happening?
Any help would be appreciated.
Hi figuervj, did you ever figure this out? I am having exactly the same issue.
Yes Bryant I did,
I finally figured out that when using: "Save as Template..." (from the File menu), Dreamweaver was creating the file with two extensions: .dwt & .cfm...
However, it should only have one extension, and that's: .dwt (DreamWeaverTemplate). This way both Dreamweaver & Contribute treat it as a template file rather than regular Coldfusion.
This should fix the issue.
