Lesson 7. Using Libraries > Updating Library References

Updating Library References

If you choose not to update your pages at the time you edit a library item, but decide do so later, Dreamweaver lets you do all the updating with a single command.

1.
Open the footer library item from the Library panel. Change the copyright date to 2001 and save the document. In the Update Library Items dialog box, click Don't Update.

Neither biking.htm nor cycling_intro.htm will show the new copyright date yet.

2.
From the menu bar, choose Modify > Library > Update Pages.

The Update Pages dialog box opens.

3.
In the Look In drop-down menu, choose Entire Site.

The menu to the right will display the current site, DW4 Intro. You are choosing to update all files in your site that use the footer library item.

4.
In the Update checkboxes, check the Library Items box and uncheck the Templates box. Check the Show Log box and click Start.

The Update Pages dialog box shows which files were updated.

5.
Click Close to close the dialog box.

The new copyright date appears in both biking.htm and cycling_intro.htm.
