    Template not changing after updating

    Breezy Cam


      Hi There

      I am just starting out with CS3 and it is like nothing I have ever experienced before. I have several problems which I just cannot work through and I am wondering if they are all linked to one simple reasoning - that I need to do a basic course which tells me all these basic points.

      - My templates have always updated fine until now.

      1. I have one site that the title will not change on the other pages that are based on the template, so when I change the title from main template to services and hit enter, it justs goes straight back to saying main template.
      2. I have another site that I changed the bottom navigation table and now it won't update in the other pages.
      3. I have yet another site that I changed the background, so that it now has a Fireworks background that I saved and imported. That came out fine on the template page, but then when I added new pages and updated the other pages, they wouldn't show the new background
      There are a couple of tables in this template and the text comes out different on some of the other pages to that on the actual template page - why does this happen? It is so frustrating. I haven't messed around with it. I just insert the table, write in the text and then edit the text to the size and colour. So, why is it inconsistent?

      I have heaps of other questions as well, but will maybe just post them as they become on the desperate list. I do wonder though, if there are some things that are basic knowledge that I need to know because I seem to be wasting alot of unnecessary time trying to work things out that seem basic.
