Are you doing this through the Content Management system in the Admin pages?


Content > View Edit Content

and scroll down to:

Page Name: Main Template
Content Area: Footer

And click 'Edit'

You may find it easier to click the 'Source' button in the editor toolbar to see how the footer links are formatted.



Apologies if this is what you are aleady trying, but thought I'd check.

Then open your 'Main.dwt.php' file in the Templates folder, remove or change that line of text and then save the document.

It will ask you if you want to update the pages based on that template (32), just click 'yes' and re-upload those pages.

Hi Tony,

That's odd, that should have done it.

Just to be sure we're doing the same steps, here's what I would normally do. Again, apologies if this is what you have already tried.

In Dreamweaver, open your local site that has all the Powerstore folders and files in it. If you haven't created a local site for these in Dreamweaver, then you can just quickly create one now.

Then follow the steps in my last post. When you have made changes to your main template page, and click 'save', Dreamwever should ask you if you want to update all the other pages based on this template. Click OK.

DW updates the other pages with your changes. You then need to re-upload all the changed pages to your remote server (you don't need to upload the template, but it's fine if you do).

Hi Neil, it may be my error i havent set a local site with all the folders, i just downloaded the template from the server and then re-uploaded it. I will make a local site and then make the changes and then let you know what happens. Thanks
