Setting Up Custom Pages

You can use two approaches to set up custom pages—one using Dreamweaver templates and the other using document types. The first method is the easiest to implement; it can be used both for standard templates in which certain areas of the page are locked and for fully editable pages, which include custom <meta> tags or comments. Following is the procedure for setting up custom pages by using a Dreamweaver template:

  1. The administrator saves a blank, customized page as a Dreamweaver template in a particular site.

    If the page is to be completely editable, you don’t need to add editable regions. Dreamweaver displays an alert noting the lack of such regions when the file is saved; in this instance, it is safe to ignore the alert.

  2. To make a new page from the template, the designer makes a new page by choosing File > New and selecting the custom template from the Template tab.

  3. For the page to be totally editable and free of template markup, clear the Update Page When Template Changes check box.
