Template Basics

Templates let you build pages that share a similar structure and graphic identity, quickly and without having to worry about accidentally deleting or changing elements. They come in very handy when you’re designing a site for which other, less Dreamweaver-savvy individuals are responsible for adding new pages. If you use a template, these underlings will be able to modify only the areas of a page that you, the godlike Dreamweaver guru, define.

Tip

Macromedia Contribute, a simple, word processor—like program for updating Web sites, works very well with sites built using Dreamweaver templates. If you build sites that are updated by people who don’t know the first thing about Dreamweaver or building Web pages, Contribute can help.
