Dreamweaver CS3 Template Editable Regions

Step 7: Dreamweaver CS3 Tutorial - Specify Template Editable Regions

[This is Step 7 of the Dreamweaver CS3 Tutorial]

Dreamweaver templates allow you to specify editable regions. These will be the areas of the template where you will insert content that will differ from page to page. To do this:

  1. Put the cursor in the region that you wish to make editable
  2. Insert > Template Objects > Editable Region
  3. Give the editable region a name e.g. content.
  4. The editable region will appear on the template with a colored outline and the specified name.

If you have a library item (e.g. submenu) or banner etc. which will appear in most of the pages but will change in some you can keep the library item in the template, select it and create an editable region around it. So in a new page created with this template the library item will appear by default, however it can be replaced with another one where necessary.
