Dreamweaver template update not updating pages
Finally, you will also learn how to get Dreamweaver to automatically figure out which pages of your site to upload without your having to manually open and upload every one of them.
Dreamweaver allows you to make changes to all template-based web pages site-wide.
When changes have been made to locked regions in a template, you have the option of updating these regions in all template-based web pages.
This option is useful for making changes to a page header or any element that appears identically on every page.
So if you clicked Update in step 4, you create a process stream that updates those files. All format*templates were created from the template. If you clicked Update in step 4, a second process stream would be created when the template was updated with the change to the left_file in order to update all the file that use this template.
So then we have 2 process streams running at the same time.
Sometimes the two process streams try to update the same file at the same time and Dreamweaver may crash or the file will not be updated correctly.
Unfortunately Dreamweaver doesn’t handle this situation the way that it should, which would be to run one stream first and then run the second one.
The problem is, I copied (ctrl a) & (ctrl c) and pasted all files into another folder (on another drive)...
Templates aren’t useful just for rapidly building pages; they also make quick work of site updates.
