So my Dreamweaver templates must not have editable regions for the navigation and footer. The only editable region would be for the admin content region.
I must then apply this template to the admin pages and then create a theme from this template.
For any newly generated administrator pages I must apply this template to these pages. Then for each the administrative page and while still open I must then apply the theme.
Hopefully now I've got it. Appreciate your assistance Jason.
