Changing copyright notice in footer?

Thread began 10/22/2009 12:23 am by micja3389704 | Last modified 11/16/2009 5:00 pm by iggymak198560 | 2839 views | 19 replies |

Changing copyright notice in footer?

Is it possible to change the copyright notice in the footer? I did go into Main.dwt.php and changed the link and information, saved and uploaded, but there was no change on any of the pages.

Is it not allowed (locked) or have I not found the right file that will change all the footers?

Thanks,
Michelle

When you changed the template, where you prompted to apply the change to all of the child pages?


Go to Modify -> Templates -> Update Pages.

Once all of the pages are updated, you will need to re upload them all.

updating the template

Hi Jason, no, I didn't get that message when I modified the page, and when I used your suggestion (modify/templates/update pages) I got the following message: Error accessing file .....Templates\Main.dwt.php": bad file path (error code 3).

So is there someplace I did miss creating a path in the globals file or someplace else? I do notice that it skips the \store\ file that comes before \Templates\ but so far I haven't found where I would enter the path to fix it.

The power store files need to be at the root of your Dreamweaver site for Dreamweaver to be able to manage the pages using the template.


Dreamweaver expects the template folder to be at the root of the site.

It sounds like you have the power store files in a sub directory of the Dreamweaver site called "store"

Yes, the store files are in a sub directory of the site. It was an existing site that we are more or less "adding" the store to. Would it adversely affect anything else in the site if I move the template folder into the root directory?

You should create two Dreamweaver sites, one for the PowerStore pages and another for the main store pages.


make sure the two site are in separate locations, for example:|


Main Store:
Local Files:
c:\websites\storeSite


PowerStore:
Local Files:
c:\websites\powerstore


Then "put them together" when they uploaded to the remote host. You can controll where Dreamweaver uploads site files with the host directory setting on the Remote Info tab of the site definition.

Main Store:
hosst directory:
httpdocs/

Power Store:
host directory:
httpdocs/store

I wasn't sure if you were going to be able to get back to me today, so I did a full backup of the site, crossed my fingers (making it harder to type) and moved the templates folder into the site root folder (one up from the powerstore folder) and dreamweaver asked if I wanted to upate all pages and links. I clicked update, uploaded the site, and it worked the way you said it should have in the beginning. So this one seems to be solved. Now that I do have that template folder in the root folder, I should be able to make future template changes with the same result. I think it will work. So far so good.

I imagine there may be other files that I am going to run into this with, and since I didn't know when I first set up powerstore that we needed to run from two separate root folders, I have come far enough along I don't know if it is better to keep it the way I have it, or if there are going to be other files that need to be root files that are going to cause more problems down the road and so I should bite the bullet and start all over again now?

You had another past asking about using tools like menu writer to modify your power store files.

If you are going to use the extensions for modifying PowerStore, the power store files will need to be at the root of your site and you will need to use the technique i described in my last post.
