I don't have access to DreamWeaver at home - only at the office. What I do have access to is the website host's downloading and uploading of files capabilities.
My problem is that instead of using "File>New from Template" in Dreamweaver, can I instead just do a "Save As" of the template file and rename it to something else? And in this way can I then just add stuff to the new file ( which ofcourse should already have stuff from the template)?
Thanks, any help will be greatly appreciated.
DW Templates are a propriety animal. They won't work in other text/HTML editors. If you do as you propose, you could mess up other site pages based on your DWT files.
File > New Page from Template. Save as somefilname.html. Open this page in a plain text editor (notepad, NoteTab...) strip out all the Template specific comments from the code.
Save again. This is no longer a child of a Template so any changes to the original DWT will have no effect on it.
Better still, don't bring work home.
Many thanks Nancy!
