Correct workflow for templates and themes
Examining many of the posts about the subject I have completed the process as follows but have a few questions.
I created my page layout and converted to a Dreamweaver admin template with editable regions: admin navigation, admin content and admin footer. I inserted the admin navigation page as a plug-in using framework builder as well for the admin footer to the respective editable regions.
I created all the administration pages using data bridge. After creating all these administration pages I applied the admin template to all pages except the products search page.
Next I opened my Dreamweaver admin template and created a theme. I selected applied to all pages using this template. After quite a lengthy process the styles were successfully applied to all the admin pages.
Have I followed the correct process by including my framework builder plug-ins directly to the template editable regions?
If not, where should I insert the framework builder plug-ins:
a. To the theme page created from the template, or
b. To the page that is created from the option "Create Page with Theme" using framework builder.
If I need to create a new administrator page using data bridge, is the correct process to apply the theme as follows:
Have the new administration page open and apply the admin template. Then save the page and the use framework builder to "apply theme" to the admin page.
Looking forward to get this workflow and process done and dusted. Appreciate the advice and/or correction.
