template with no editable title & description tags

Hello,

I am not Dreamweaver or CSS expert so please bear with me.

I have created a Dreamweaver template from Sculptor and can create various pages with editable regions with no problem until I come to edit the title & meta names which appear to be locked.

Each time I type a new title in, it is not accepted.

Tried to paste the following onto the template with no success

<!-- TemplateBeginEditable name="doctitle" -->
<TITLE>new name</TITLE>
<meta name="description" content="new description." />
<meta name="keywords" content="new keywords" />
<!-- TemplateEndEditable -->

Can anybody point me in the direction of where I am going wrong please?

Regards,

Peter

When you create a template in Dreamweaver, it will automatically create the doctitle and head editable regions.

you can manually add them by replacing the title tag in the template with:

html:
<!-- TemplateBeginEditable name="doctitle" -->
<title>new name</title>
<!-- TemplateEndEditable -->
<!-- TemplateBeginEditable name="head" -->
<meta name="description" content="new description." />
<meta name="keywords" content="new keywords" />
<!-- TemplateEndEditable -->



make sure that your changes are being applied to the child pages, go to Modify -> Template -> Updates pages to force your changes to be applied after saving.
