Data Assist pages with in Sculptor design

Ok, since Data Assist creates the pages for you, how do you get them into your designs made with Sculptor?

Save your CSS Sculptor Design as a Template.

Go to File -> Save As Template to save a page as a template.

once the page has been saved as a template, you need to add editable regions to it, go to Insert -> Template Objects -> Editable Region to add an Editable Region.

In Data Assist, you can select the template to use and the editable region to place the content in on the first step.

Templates? Thats so 1990's.

Dreamweaver templates are horrible! Too bad, I wanted to do this site with all WebAssist stuff and refrain from using Adobe Dreamweaver Developer Toolbox.

Thanks anyways, maybe next project. :-(

You wouldn't be using a Dreamweaver template.

You would be using a template that was created from your CSS Sculptor Design, not one of the stock templates.

I'm not sure I understand you dislike of using templates in Dreamweaver, I agree that the stock Dreamweaver templates are terrible, but if you create your own template designs, it simplifies the process of maintaining your site.

By making changes to the template, you can apply those changes to all of the pages that are created from the template.

Hi Jason,

Yeah I knew what you meant. I am an Adobe Community Expert for Dreamweaver and Adobe Dreamweaver Developer's Toolbox.

The template system in Dreamweaver has not changed much since the very early Macromedia days. Its a horrible way to do things.

But that's a whole different topic and not the scope of this board so I won't go into it. ;-)

I gave the template method a try (against my better judgment). It does not work in my case.

I want to have a login nugget/module on all pages at the top right corner.

index.php

Any ideas how to work around this? Can login pages etc be included with SSI instead?

What was the problem you encountered adding the login to the template.

You can add the form for the username and the password to the template, then add the Security Assist Authenticate User Server behavior.


To be able to add that as a server side include, you would need to create on SSI with the Authenticate user server behavior in it and another with the form in it. The SSI with the server behavior would need to be added at the top of the page, before the doctype tag.

It added the form beside the box, not in it.

Some other things too .. just messed up stuff so i scrapped the idea.

When Adding login to all of your pages using a template, it's usually best to create a main login page using the security assist wizard, then copy that login form into the template, and set the forms action to post to the main login page.

I can see that, templates do have their shortcomings, we'll leave it at that ;)
