Menu changes on template do not cascade to webpages

Menu changes on template do not cascade to webpages

I created a webpage template and used MenuWriter to create a menu with one sub-level. With all DW files except the template file closed, when I go back in and add a Level 1 item under one of the main menu items, the change does not cascade across all the previously created webpages.

when closing the menu, I select 'apply' and 'finish'.

When closing the template, I choose 'save changes'.

I choose update all files.

Then I open a webpage and choose preview in Firefox (or IE) and check the menu change. Nada. What am I doing wrong? I've read a couple of the previous posts on this topic but no joy.

Thanks for any help.

Is the menu inside of an editable region on the template?


Make sure you did not place the menu inside of an editable region, changes made inside an editable region are not applied to pages derived from the template.

Thanks, Jason. That was exactly right! Thanks for the tip.

However, when I redid the editable regions in the template (see code below) the template appears fine but all the previously developed webpages look like the one attached as an example. Can you tell me why the 'main content' region is now offset to the right and how to correct it?

Obviously, the css menu and image should no longer be in the 'Main Content' region, and the left border of that region should be adjacent to the right side of the 'Sidebar' editable region.

Thanks for any help you can provide.

you have the menu in a div with the id mainContent, this is the same as the main content div,

How do I correct that? Edit the name of the div id for the menu in the code??

That is certainly a start, but to be honest, i cant really tell you how to fix it.

The page design does not seam to be complete, you don't have a navigation div on your page.


before adding the menu to the page, you have your page design in place with a specific place in the design specifically for the navigation, you can then add the menu into the navigation div.
