The pages are created using a template, so if you want to make all parts of the page editable, you can detach it from the template. You can do this by going to the modify menu in Dreamweaver and then going to the template option and select detach from template. You can then make changes and apply the template again afterward.

Another way you can make changes is to go into the template file and make these changes and apply them to the other pages.

Detaching a page from Template

If the reason you are having difficulties is because areas of your page are locked because they were created from a template, then the link above shows you how to detach it.

If you are experiencing other problems, you need to post back with full details of what you are seeing and what you are trying.

Could you also upload your page and provide a link for us to see the page?

Hi there,

Thanks for that. Yes, you were right. The reason that the area with the picture of a sailing ship and the 'New England premiere properties' seems to be un-editable, is that the top part of that area (the contentWrapper div) is one large picture as defined in the css for that div. You can see the image HERE

If you want to remove that image so that you can replace it with your own content, you could either do it while using the SiteAssist to design your site, or now that it's done, you could just remove a couple of lines from your 'siteassistpro_css/home.css' stylesheet:

Find the following block of code in the stylesheet:

#outerWrapper #contentWrapper {
background-image:url(../siteassistpro_images/contentWrapper_bg1.jpg);
background-repeat:no-repeat;
margin-left:10px;
margin-right:10px;
overflow:hidden;
padding-top:361px;
}


And take out the second, third and sixth lines, and change the last line:

#outerWrapper #contentWrapper {
margin-left:10px;
margin-right:10px;
padding-top:10px;
}




'padding-top:361px;' that will have made this hard for you to detect, - it effectively 'shields' that area against editing!]

Any content you add should sit above the left column and content (which are two divs in the bottom half of the contentWrapper)

Hope this helps. Sorry you had to wait so long; - if you get more problems, be sure to post a link to the page you need help with, it makes diagnosis much easier, and quicker.

What also might be helpful:

To make it easier to see the new space you have and to place your cursor in it, go to line (at or about) line 150 of your page, and immediately after:

<div id="contentWrapper">


add the following line:

<div id="content_top" style="margin-left:20px; margin-right:20px; margin-bottom:10px;">Content for your top space Goes Here</div>
