Defining content areas in your custom site design

An important question, I wonder if, for example, I perform a site-based templates, and then clear this Site Sculptor applied, the creation by the tool will take me pages and created with their contents, or if there is any way of applying the code to those regions defined for content that can later be modified by the content management system. I hope the question is clear. Thanks

Defining CMS content areas in your template

Gabriel,

Site Sculptor will create content areas in the CMS for every editable region in your Dreamweaver template.

All you need to do is open your template in Dreamweaver and add the additional editable regions where you want to manage content in the CMS.

This is covered at the beginning of this tutorial:
creating-custom-templates.php

One note...the navigation and the footer editable regions are used for Site Sculptor to insert your menu and footer links, so those do not get added to the CMS.

Problem with Menu in Site Sculptor

This entirely clear, but the point is how to know if once I set the editable region for the CMS to take it. Say, what is the code to apply and how!!

Moreover, when I make the site note that the menu has not been implemented, ie when it does not look Preview in browser, despite having done all the steps correctly. Always talking about his own design and using a Dreamweaver template. How do I fix this?

You do not have to apply any code. When you import your template into Site Sculptor, all editable regions will be added to the CMS for you automatically.

Does this answer your question?

As for your menu, as stated in the tutorial i mentioned above...

  Creating your menu

If your custom design has a unique navigation menu design that you want to make sure Site Sculptor uses, you will need to create this menu as a CSS Menu Writer preset. CSS Menu Writer is another Dreamweaver extension that is included in the WebAssist Extension Library or Super Suite.

For more information on using CSS Menu Writer to create your menu see the CSS Menu Writer Support page.

If you do not require a specific menu design, Site Sculptor includes some preset designs that can be changed in Theme-It to match any color. These menus are designed to fit well with most web designs and should be good additions to most sites.  



So, if your menu is very unique to your design, you'll need to use CSS Menu Writer to create it as a new preset. Then, in the Add Layout Wizard you can choose your menu and your Dreamweaver template for your new Site Sculptor site.

To make things easier, i would recommend trying one of the preset menus that Site Sculptor's Add Layout Wizard provides. These are all CSS-based, and you can change the menu to have any color you like.
