    Dreamweaver Template Editable Region Old Problem

    dreamweaver_pro Level 1
      Hello,

      Please, I need urgent help regarding the Adobe Dreamweaver CS3 program for Mac OS X. It is, unfortunately, driving me crazy, because I have now a problem that is not letting me edit any editable region in the child pages I create and apply the template to that page. I have tried to restart the computer, restart Dreamweaver and even reinstalled Dreamweaver and made my Template from scratch and nothing worked. The problem keeps there and doesn't let me edit any editable region.

      Here is what happens: I have created a Editable Region called "Page Content". Also, another 2 editable regions called "Section Navigation" and "Sub Navigation". These editable regions are just there to make my job easier. In the Page Content part, I put the content I want to add to that page, like text and a heading. For the Navigations, I simply change the class of one list item to "current", so that my CSS rule can be applied to that list item and change the font, so that the users can tell in what page they are now, you get it?

      So, what happens? Everytime I try to make changes to the editable region Dreamweaver prompts this message:

      "You have made changes in the code in a region that is not marked as an Editable Region... You will lose all of your changes in the next update of your template. Do you want to retain all of the changes?"

      But IT IS A EDITABLE Region, so that is why I dont get it. And it gets even worse, because after I lose all of my changes and hours of work are wasted.

      I hope you guys, experts in Dreamweaver can make my life a lot easier by helping me solve this issue,
      Please help.
      Best regards,

      Thank you for reading this and for the help in advance,

            Show us the template, please, and tell us which editable region you cannot
            edit.

              And, by the way, such messages are usually triggered by improper code usages
              on the page - that's why we need to see your code.

                      I've never thought to validate a template file - !!!.


                      So I tried it and found it could trip some people up.

                      i.e. following advice here - I set up an editable <body> tag
                      and of course that won't validate - but that code never appears on a
                      normal file:



                      Line 17, Column 10: character "@" is not allowed in the value of
                      attribute "id".

                      <body id="@@(_document['page ID'])@@">

                        That I can accommodate in the results. It's other errors I am looking for.
                        Validation will find them.

                        I'm guessing that very few people use these advanced template capabilities,
                        anyhow.

                          Well I didn't find up easily - but now I find being able to give
                          individual or groups of pages an ID - very very useful for targeting
                          css at them. It makes things so much easier.

                            Hy!
                            I'm having the same problem.
                            I tried to validate my template and there are no errors given.
                            I have index.dwt.php template and i made produse.php child from it.
                            I'm trying to edit the editable region and when i'm trying to save the file it gives me the error:

                            "You have made changes in the code in a region that is not marked as an Editable Region... You will lose all of your changes in the next update of your template. Do you want to retain all of the changes?"

                            Then if i'm going to modify the template, the child resets to the last save before error was given.

                            Please help me. Thanks
