    Templates and editable regions- I'm a beginnner

    two8616
      I have created a nav bar in Fireworks and then made it into a template in Dreamweaver. Now I am adding content to the website but I cannot insert an editable region. I'm not sure if it's something I did wrong in fireworks or if I'm doing something wrong in dreamweaver. Do I need to add extra slices in Fireworks or something? I just cannot get dreamweaver to select the area I want for an editable region. I have no experience using any code. I have done everything graphically thus far. If you can offer any advice or tutorials, that would be great. Thanks

          You need to learn some basic code in order to be able to do this. At
          least enough to get a sense of what kinds of "containers" your editable
          content will need, e.g., paragraphs <p></p>, divs, tables and their
          cells, etc.

          For a quick lesson, do this (relatively) simple tutorial:

            To insert an editable region, you have to edit the original template. You can
            only insert an editable region in code derived from a template if you put it
            inside an editable region (in which case the original editable region
            disappears), and it only has a meaning if you are saving the new file as a
            derived template.
