Dwt not updating dreamweaver
by Christopher Heng, Nearly all websites have more than one page.Creating multiple pages for a website is a relatively simple task; things only get troublesome when you want to make a design change that affects all the pages of your website.With trepidation and fear of making a colossal mess of things, I backed up the site I wanted to modify.If you have ever updated an entire site with Dreamweaver’s feature to discover you have destroyed valid code in every document, a good back up is a helpful thing, so I recommend you do the same before attempting my solutions.Not only does Dreamweaver allow you to create such a customised ("customized" in other variants of English) template for your website, its template system also includes additional features meant to make a webmaster's typical tasks more productive.
To facilitate this auto-updating feature, Dreamweaver requires that you indicate which portions of your page constitute the fixed part of your design and which portions contain the content that varies from page to page. When you do this, Dreamweaver will create a new subfolder, called "Templates", in your website directory.
Often these sites have outdated code or are badly in need of an upgrade.
For years, Dreamweaver has used templates to allow an entire site to be updated at once simply by making changes to a master page.
Since this is chapter 7 of the Dreamweaver CS5 Tutorial series, you will probably need to start with chapter 1 if you aren't already very familiar with Dreamweaver CS5.
I will assume knowledge of all the things I've mentioned in the previous chapters.
