Customization question

If I chose to use site sculptor can I change the dimensions of the pages? Can I use apdivs in the layouts?

Yes, you can edit the CSS For the site after the pages are created to change the widths, you can also add app divs and other content to the pages after creating the site using the wizard.

Customizing index.php page after site sculptor process

I created a site using Design Extender's Site Sculptor (I'll refer to it as SS). I incorporated two similar templates, one for the home page, and one for all the content/child pages. After SS finished its process of generating all the pages, I proceeded to the index.php page to view it in the browser to make sure it rendered properly which it did. For some reason, if I want to remove any elements in the MainContent DIV or modify the properties of the CSSMenuWriter from the index.php page, I am then prompted to save it as a template. Why is it that SS does not attach the SiteSculptorTemplate to the index.php page like it does to all the child pages?
As the index.php page was created by SS (via my main.dwt.php template), the templateEditable regions were removed. The child pages (created w/ subpage.dwt.php template) were attached to the SiteSculptorTemplate and kept the editable region tags that were inserted into the original subpage template.

If I want to edit the index.php page, should I attach the SS template to the page or can the index.php page only be modified thru the PowerCMS? I need to modify the properties of the horizontal menu via CSSMenuWriter. If I modify that thru the SStemplate, will that change the menu in the index page? I have added the theme function to the SStemplate.

Attached are the two original templates that I used during the SS process. The index.php that was generated by SS is also attached.

Site Sculptor does no apply the template to the index page so that the index page can have a unique look.


On the index page, i see the following left over template code at line 16:
<!-- TemplateBeginEditable name="head" --><!-- TemplateEndEditable -->

open the index page in a text editor like Text Pad to remove that code.

I see that there are quite a few HTML comments on the index page and in the template, these comments can through of the template engine sometimes.

to make edits to the sub page navigation, you should edit the template.

The index page has it's own menu, to make edits to the index page menu, you should edit the index page.

If I delete the Template code in the header of the index page via another text editor other than Dreamweaver, then DW will not prompt me to save the index.php page as a template page?
