change menu contents for all menus on all pages automatically

hi there, when you edit the contents of a menu at a later date and you have several more pages then what you had when you first used menu writer, instead of going through each page individually to update the menu and its contents, how do you automatically update the contents of the menu for all pages without doing it individually.

kind regards

tony

Use a template for your pages, and apply the menu to the template. When the menu is updated on the template, it will apply the changes to all the pages based on that template.

you have to create the template first.

on the learning resources page:
resources.php

go to the simulations tab and see the "Working with Dreamweaver templates " video for more details.

You add the menu to the template, make sure it is not in an editable region on the template.

When you update the menu on the template, It will update the menu on any of the pages that are derived from that template.
