Cannot apply Progress Bar to existing page

Cannot apply Progress Bar to existing page

I am having a strange issue while trying to apply a Progress Bar to an existing page with Digital File Upload.

After picking the style and color I want, Dreamweaver presents a popup stating "Making this change would require changing code that is locked by a template or translator. The change will be discarded."

Anyone have any thoughts on this one?

Thanks,

Brian

This warning will happen from time to time when working withe template derived files in DW. The progress bar is trying to put in code in the following areas:

head: in here is a script file reference

body: in here there should be two divs added, one for the progress bar script, and another for the image itself

When I have gotten this error applying the progress bar I just clicked ok and it put in all the proper parts anyway. You should do the same and test the page out after the fact to check the functionality. If you have the script references and the divs on the page you should be ok.

My workaround for this was to:

• open a new file without the template.

• create a form with a file upload field.

• apply the progress bar to the form.

• copy the code from this file to the file with the template. usually you have an editable area for the title of the page. paste the header code there. the body code can be pasted in simply, but the progress bar wizard seem to work there fine.

Dreamweaver templates are the spawn of the devil, I hate them with a passion. They are a nightmare to work with on a dynamic site and always have been for as long as I can remember.
