Chapter 7. Exploring Templates > Integrating Non-Dreamweaver Templates

Integrating Non-Dreamweaver Templates

Although the term templates has a very specific meaning in Dreamweaver, it's a bit more general in Contribute. In addition to supporting Dreamweaver templates—which have locked and editable regions and are updateable—Contribute also has the capability to create pages from non-Dreamweaver templates. Non-Dreamweaver templates resemble cookie-cutter molds in that they provide a copy of a basic static Web page without any of the Dreamweaver template's special features.

Contribute includes a great number of these non-Dreamweaver templates found under the Starter Web Pages category of the New Page dialog box. The Starter Web Pages group is organized by themes. The Basic Pages theme includes more than 60 CSS-styled pages for common content, such as résumés, meeting notes, and calendars. All the other themes—Business, Community, Online Catalog/Store, Personal and Professional Services—are composed of about 40 different sites, each of which includes five or more professionally designed pages. These sites are intended to be used as complete starter sites for small businesses, so they probably cannot integrate into your own designs. However, the Basic Pages theme includes numerous useful pages, simply designed. In this lesson, you'll learn how to integrate content from the Basic Pages theme into your own Dreamweaver template.
