Okay, I have the admin folder and files; also created a user search folder for the public.
When I created the public files with DA, Dreamweaver warned me that it was creating files in uneditible region. The region selected at the beginning of the wizard is editable and does work properly in the admin files. I tried to detach and reattach, but that made a mess so I deleted the files and reran DA again for the public files. I'ts continues with the same issue. What should I do to correct this...
Further explanation: The public pages will not update when any changes to the template are made.
Also, the admin files work great and when changes are made, they are also made in the database - awesome! - I wasn't sure how all of that worked... thank you!
