    I have several different templates that all have an editable region called
    "content". If my writers or publishers try to make a link to another website,
    it works as normal the first link. The second time, on the same page, they get
    an error message that says "You cannot perform this action in this region of

    they get the error message. This is really becoming an annoying issue. We are
    using both PC & Mac. I've done all my upgrades and it is still doing it.
    Anybody else ever run into this issue or better yet, anybody got a solution??

    Do you have Dreamweaver? I recommend putting the page (or template) inside of
    Dreamweaver and click on Modify -> Template -> Check Template Syntax.

    If everything checks out okay then post the page's code here or post a URL so
    we can view. Also, is there some sort of noticable pattern to this behavior?
    Does it happen every time, or only on occasion?

    I'm having the same problem. There is a link on my website that I cannot edit
    or delete. I get a message that says "You cannot perform this action in this
    region of the page." I do not have Dreamweaver. Is there another way to get rid
    of this link?

    Greywood,

    I took a look at your file and I am not seeing the code for a template. I
    would expect to see:

    <!-- InstanceBegin template="/Templates/blog.dwt"
    codeOutsideHTMLIsLocked="false" -->

    at the begining of the code. So to me it look like youre files have not been
    created properly to function as a template based page.

    I'm so CHEESED at this problem with creating links in Contribute 3.
    I SOLVED it though.
    Inside your editable regions, you need to place a <p></p> for people to edit
    in. If there's no Paragraph tags you can't put a link in. Don't ask me why.

    As to why people can't te the error, here's the complicating factor:
    You cannot use <br> tags in the paragraphs. As soon as you do, it creates the
    problem.
    I've got Contribute set to use "single line breaks: ie Word", but I think if
    you set a general paragraph style to margin-top: 0; margin-bottom: 0; you'll be
    able to avoid the really annoying breaks that paragraph tags add.

    Even after pursuing many of the your leads, I do not understand the cause or
    causes of this symptom in my own case; however a colleague of mine found a
    workaround that may be of use:

    If we have a link in any of the editable areas of a template (say a dummy
    link) we can copy the link, then edit the text and link target!

    PS For what it is worth, my vote is that this is a bug or bugs, and an error
    message that is misleading at best.

    Yes, we use the same work-around with copy/paste then editing the properties of
    the copied links. My templates are all created in Dreamweaver and the editable
    regions are well defined. I do have combinations of <p> and <br> tags, but
    that doesn't seem to be the issue. I agree with JohnQU that this is a bug. It
    occurs consistently for all users and there doesn't seem to be a clear
    correlate to the CPS administration settings or role settings. Adobe: please
    fix this!

    Does anyone have any further suggestions on this? I've verified and validated
    my code in botht he HTML file and the template six ways from Sunday, built in
    HomeSite, checked in Dreamweaver, and every time it tells me the Template
    syntax is properly formed. I've placed <p> and </p> tags in, to no effect.
    I've run out of ideas.

    Specific example:

    HTML page [url]http://www.smu.ca/athletics/varsity/basketball-w/welcome.html[/url]
    Template file [url]http://www.smu.ca/athletics/Templates/varsity-wb-welcome.dwt[/url]

    I searched through Google and Yahoo for this error message and couldn't find an
    answer to this error message problem when trying to add a new hyperlink. I
    found the answer in my case. I checked to see if any of the includes were
    checked out from within Dreamweaver. And sure enough my includes were checked
    out. As soon as I checked them in, the error went away. I think Contribute
    opens the main page beacuse it's checked in. However if any of the includes
    are checked out instead of checked in, it confused Contribute. Ever try and
    edit a page in Contribute that is checked out by Dreamweaver? It won't let
    you. So naturally it's confused by part of the page being checked in and
    another part being checked out.

    I didn't find any mention of this on any of the discussion threads, so I
    thought I should try and spread the word.

    Hope this helps.
