How to modify the pages to include a header and footer like other site pages

I would like to add a header image and footer to each page. The header would contain an image and the footer would have the usual copyright info etc and maybe some nav links. What is the easiest way of achieving this.

I have altered the 'Registration' and 'Thank you' pages and they seem to work properly. I have just added in div tags and attached a style sheet to provide the visuals.
This method doesn't seem to work with the admin pages or the 'login', 'logout' or 'profile' pages. Can anyone give me a few pointers since I am only an amature in the field but love the satisfaction of learning how get things done.

I have purchased some other Webassist products and think they will be great as soon as I learn how to use them. The documentation is good but in places I get lost since what is obvious to an experienced programmer in some cases is a brick wall to me.

I am using Dreamweaver CS3.


Thanks in advance for any pointers

We would be glad to help you get this sorted out. When it comes to modifying these pages for the User Registration it sounds like you are having success on the front end pages but are not getting the desired result on the back end pages.

When it comes to modifying the back end pages are you using the same approach as you do on the front end pages? There should be no difference in how you interact with the pages to achieve the result. Please post back and include some more info about your specific steps you are taking and the result you are getting with those steps.

This is good to hear, was there something going on that was not obvious or was there just some sporadic issue that was preventing you from making the edits the first time around?
