adding the content to the page has nothing to do with pointer records.
Visit the CMS Admin section.
in the CMS Admin section, Select a Content section from the left hand side menu, This will populate the main area with the Content Areas that belong to the selected Content Location. One of the menu items for each content area will be the developer notes. This is code that you add to a page where you want to display the content.
When you use the Dreamweaver CMS access points, you are just really adding that developer notes code to the page.
it's not a pointer record that ties the content area to the page, it is the developer notes code.
To create a template content location, you need to use the CMS Admin, you cannot create a template content location through the Dreamweaver CMS Access points. Only with template content locations are the last 4 columns needed.
