Changing Editable Region

Changing Editable Region

Good morning, everybody.

I have a problem that after all the research I've done, I still can't find the answer to. I just created a website using the latest version of SiteAssist Professional with Dreamweaver CS3. I think the software is great and really reduces production time - especially for a novice like myself. The one thing that I want to change is the Editable Region. I used the Business Layout with the Slate Design. On the Template, it defines 3 div tags that are of interest to this discussion. The first is "contentWrapper", next "leftColumn1" and finally "content". Then we have this line, "TemplateBeginEditable name="content"". The problem is that I'd like to not only edit the "content" div but also the "leftColumn1" div. I've moved this around in code view and renamed the TemplateBeginEditable name to point to "contentWrapper" but it never seems to work out right. It always somehow ruins the display and makes "leftColumn1" disappear.

So how can I accomplish this task. Only a few pages in my site have the leftColumn1 div in it, but for those pages I would like to have unique content.

Any help would be appreciated.

Thank you in advance!

You should be able to open up the file in the templates folder and add the editable region.

Then save and close the template and click ok to update all of the pages. Then you will be able to add content in that editable region on the related pages.

That worked - thanks! I thought I could only have a single editable region for some reason. I appreciate your quick feedback.
