    Editable region not editable message

    nyipl
      I've created a template with the content area marked as editable. When I create a new file from this template, then make changes in the region marked as editable, I get an error message when I try to validate the code saying I've made changes to code that is not editable. I'm attaching the relevant part of the code. In this sample, I get the message when I try to change the text "lglg elements" which as far as I can see should be editable.

      Thank you for any help!

          That message is thrown whever the template engine encounters an error on the
          page, related or unrelated to your template markup, so it's a bit of a red
          herring.

          Does the page validate when you go here?

            Hi,

            That's a good site to know about. I'll use that in the future.

            As for this problem, I published the file as it was created from the template without trying to make any changes, and I went to that website to validate it. I got the message "This document was successfully checked as XHTML 1.0 Strict!" This newly-created file is also validated as correct in Dreamweaver.

            The page that I published without modifying it is at http://www.lglg.org/elements/products.html. (I'm using one of the Free CSS Templates.) When I simply try to change the title text "lglg elements" to "products" I get the message that I'm trying to change something that's not editable.

            Thank you for any further ideas about this!

              Try changing this in the Template page -

              <div id="sidebar">

              <ul>
              <li>
              <h2><strong>elements</strong> resources</h2>
              <ul>

              to this -

              <div id="sidebar">

              <ul>
              <li>
              <p><strong>elements</strong> resources</p>
              <ul>

              and see if you still get that error. I don't think you can have an <h#> tag
              inside a <li> element.

                Hi Murray,
                I tried it (See source for http://www.lglg.org/elements/products.html) but I still have the problem. Actually, I've used <h#> inside <li> before and it hasn't seemed to complain.
                (For example, see http://www.lglg.org/index.html .)

                  Zip the template, the child page, and the dependent files, and email them to
                  me at -
