    Newbie Needs Tutorial & Suggestion

    Thongrrrl14 Level 1
      My experience with DW hasn't gotten past basic HTML pages.

      I need to make a site that has about 50 pages. The site needs a navigation bar that will appear on every page. The links on the navigation bar may change during the process of the site design.

      Do I have to make a template for the site that contains the navigation bar, with editable regions? What happens if I change the navigation bar somewhere down the road?

      Thx!

          That would work for a site this size. Make sure you read the F1 Help about
          templates first, though.

          > with editable regions?

          The navigation would not be in an editable region.

          Those changes are propagated to the child pages of the template.

          You could also use Library items, or Server-side includes to accomplish the
          same goal.
