I actually don't want to edit the template, i just want to run the dataassist wizard, i want to be able to choose PUBLIC and then select 3 Rows and 3 Columns (or 4 columns) but after going through the wizard options, i always get an error message. When the message asks 'do i want to retain the changes until then' i usually select no, if i select yes, i end up with a blank screen when i go to view it in the browser. If i select the item 'repeat selection' in the server behaviours list i get an error message and the whole thing crashes. The error message reads:
I therefore tend to delete this server behaviour after running the wizard, i then choose modify and detatch from template, if i don't detatch and i try to add the repeat selection server behavior again, i get the original error message about trying to make changes to code that is not marked as editable.
After detaching from template i select the div 'tableWADAresults table' which includes the default image and data underneath, i then click on the plus sign and select dataassist and repeat selection. In the box that appears i chose the only dynamic option available 'WADAitems' and 3 for the amount but this doesn't do anything as i'm still left with one column when i test. The column has 9 images going vertically down the page but i would like 3 and 3 and 3 going horizontally.
The other thing i tried was detaching from template before running the wizard, then making it a template again and selecting my own region, i tried this twice, once using the content region and once using content wrapper for my region but this also failed.
I'll send some screen shots for you the next time i run the wizard so you can see whats happening.
One thing i recently noticed (which may or may not have something to do with the problem) if i click on live view which i haven't been using, i tend to preview in safari browser but if i click on live view, i see a load of code sitting in the topnavigation area where the menu should be and the menu is pushed down below it. This doesn't appear when i preview in the browser but maybe there is problem with the 'menuwriter' design, i don't know. I don't think so because i've tried running the wizard using an un-customised template and menu and that also errored.
