Hello Jimmy and thanks for getting back to me.
The workaround I mentioned is the one relating to being unable to alter the site’s navigation using CSSMW. When you try to alter the navigation using CSSMW the error message, “The database connection for this content preset does not exist..." appears. This problem seems well documented in the forum.
As I mentioned in yesterday’s post, I have downloaded a fresh copy of PS3. I opened the main.dwt (read only mode) in Dreamweaver CS3 without altering it. No luck, exactly the same problem in DW design view and all of the four test browsers I use.
Clearly, I could just make a copy of an existing page but I really think this would be a cop out. I would like the programme to work, as it should, by being able to create a page from the template or attach the template to a new page. So, if you can persevere with this problem for a little while longer, I’ll really appreciate it.
Once again, Jimmy, thanks for your help and patience.
