    Default Spry menu bar won't update

    I'm moving to Dreamweaver from GoLive. Learning a lot. Built a template and
    it's working except for the horizontal spry menu bar. The menu (on the pages
    built from the template) won't update when I change information on the menu bar
    on the template. I enclosed pretty much everything on the template inside one
    editable area, including the spry menu bar. I've worked all day on this, read
    everything I can find. No where can I find specific info on spry menu's inside
    a template. Is this not done? If not, could someone point me to the information
    on how to build a spry menu that I can edit once and update lots of pages at
    once?
    Thanks to anyone who can help,
    Becky

    The editable sections of a template are not updated globally when a template is
    updated. The logic is that editable sections are specific to the child page
    and that the non-editable regions are global to all pages using the template.

    If you want your Spry menu to propagate across all dependent pages, put it in
    the non-editable region . Then, when you update the menu, you will be invited
    by DW to update all dependent pages.

    Which is why placing the menu bar in an editable region of a Template pretty
    much removes the reason for using templates in the first place!

    Thank you both for the explanation! I have, unfortunately, not had time today
    to get back to work on this but you have made my head quit hurting. Once I get
    it working I'll post again. Could be tomorrow.

    Thanks!
