    Components

    Jack-Flash
      I'm thinking about making the switch from GL to DW and was wondering if DW had something like the components that GL has?

      These components are blocks of code that you insert into pages with the beauty of them being that if you edit the component, every instance of it is updated in every page of your site.

      Any ideas?

          Yes, library items and templates can accomplish the same thing. Or you
          could step up to server side includes and DW will update the view with
          the updated SSI code *and* you only have to upload one file to your
          server to make the entire site reflect the new change.

            Thanks. After I posted the question I did a search and found the answer. . . ;-)
