Hi Jason

I have had a look at this, There is defiantly a problem as my newly created page has exactly the same uri as the template page I built it from, no query string variable at the end. so I can not try your solution.

My troubleshooting so far

From the Help Section

Creating new pages

You have the ability to create new pages that are based on a template. This feature is only available if the page was selected to be used as a content management template when the website was created.

THIS BIT IS OK
1.From the Content column, hover your mouse over the template.
THIS BIT IS OK
2.Click the green + icon that displays next to the template.
THIS BIT IS OK
3.Enter name for this new page..
THIS BIT IS OK
4.Edit the content of the new page like you would any other content location.
THIS OPTION DOES NOT EXIST FOR ME
5.Once you have updated the content, click the Create Link option to see how you can create a link to this new page.

My Navigation does not appear in the CMS as an editable region like my other editiable regions, I have a feeling that is why I am not getting step 5 and am unable to create a link to the new page?

I tried editing the menu from dreamweaver as you said however, the Dynamic Menu writer has 3 options for CONNECTION, none, My Site Name and a PowerCMSconnection, in the field below it says TABLE and shows **No Table Shown this does not change regardless of whatever option I select in the Option above.

So I am seriously confused and need some help, I know you guys know your stuff and would really appreciate some assistance with this.

Thanks
Steve
