Adding more areas for CMS to use

I created the editable template regions and made the css sculptor design into a site sculptor design. So I picked the navigation, content and footer areas but cannot remember how to get my other regions to show in the CMS when it goes live.

any editable regions in the body of the template should be converted to CMS regions by Site Sculptor.

So after I create my .dwt and put the 3 editable areas, Navigation, Content, and footer. I make it a preset for site sculptor, then create the site sculptor site and go to the templates and add the editable regions for my other areas? So when i upload it live it will pick them up as so and be editable with the CMS?

If I add all the editable regions in my original .dwt and create everything for the site sculptor page, the only thing that shows up is the content region. All the others are blank, granted the navigation area has the menu now, and the footer area has the footer links.

before making the template a preset, you need to add editable regions for the cms content areas.


Outside of the areas you set for navigation, content and footer, nay other editable regions added to the template will become cms regions.

And if they don't? I did something wrong?

First I made the design in css sculptor, then I added all the editable regions, then went into preset manager and made it a preset (oohhh, I chose use css sculptor..should I have done dreamweaver template?), then made a site using the design and only see the content area having the cms logo.

yes, you should have chosen Dreamweaver template. the css sculptor design will not have any additional editable regions to convert.

Shouldn't the navigation and footer not come in as a CMS region? Also only the index.php page has those "edit cms" icons appear when you log in. All the other pages are just normal pages. But you can still edit them through the admin. Also, the server within the admin, where you browse images and files to use, doesn't work. It shows nothings in there and if I upload an image and try to link to it, it is a broken link.

The link address gets set to /files/"image".jpg, and it's broken link. The website is www.conciergeHNW.com . I am stuck using hyperlinks for a menu, and cannot add any images to the site.
