.... Then you will be able to place any head content you want into that editable region on any child page. In addition, DW will use that editable region for javascript to support its behaviors. Since the tag cannot be placed in an editable region, DMX introduced the editable attribute feature. This allows you to specify any attribute of any tag on the page as editable, e.g., onLoad, or width, or whatever. That's what you would use for the body tag. To use the editable region in the head of the child page, you would just paste your head content directly in. To use the editable attribute in the body tag of the child page, you would need to select MODIFY | Template Properties, and edit through that user interface. -- Murray --- ICQ 71997575 Team Macromedia Volunteer for Dreamweaver (If you *MUST* email me, don't LAUGH when you do so!) ================== [url]http://www.dreamweavermx-templates.com[/url] - Template Triage!

unlock head tags on child page based on template - Macromedia Dynamic HTML

Is there a way to unlock the head tags and body tag of a child page that is based on a template? I can insert Flash Video on the template page, I can insert FV on a page created before I make it a template, but as soon as I create a page based from that template and try to insert FV, it needs to put a script in the head tag and a body onload. It can't do that because those areas are locked by the template. How can this be done? I'm practicing on my own template-based page ...

    Yes - put them into an editable region in the head of the page (you would
    have to add the editable region to the template page (if there is not
    already one there)), and allow it to propagate to the child pages.
    > and body tag
    You would need to investigate the use of editable attributes (DW's F1 help).

    Which DW are you using? Which DW was used to create the templates?

    Default Re: unlock head tags on child page based on template

    I made the body editable and updated the child pages, and then tried to insert
    the video. Didn't work. Still blocked by the template.

    I then tried to make the Head tags editable, but DW says: Which attributes of
    the head tag do you want editable? When I click on ADD, it then wants me to
    enter a name of the new attribute to insert into the head tag. Problem is, I
    just want it to be editable so that on the child page I can go to Modify ->
    Templates -> Make Attribute Editable.

    So I don't know what I need to put in that head tag. If I put the "script" in
    for the Flash Video, then that script will be on every single child page. I
    only want it on the one child page, thus the reason to modify the child page
    after the template head tags being editable.

    So........I don't know where to go from here.

    See, I need both the body for body onload, and the head tags editable. Again,
    I did make the body editable, but the FV still can not be inserted as it is
    still blocked. And now I am at the point trying to make the head tags
    editable.

    Default Re: unlock head tags on child page based on template

    You are confusing editable regions with editable attributes.

    You would ADD an editable region to the head (the way a properly created
    template in DMX/DMX2004/DW8 already does), e.g.,

    <head>
    ....
    <!-- TemplateBeginEditable name="head" --><!-- TemplateEndEditable -->
    ....
    </head>

    Then you will be able to place any head content you want into that editable
    region on any child page. In addition, DW will use that editable region for
    javascript to support its behaviors.

    Since the <body> tag cannot be placed in an editable region, DMX introduced
    the editable attribute feature. This allows you to specify any attribute of
    any tag on the page as editable, e.g., onLoad, or width, or whatever.
    That's what you would use for the body tag.

    To use the editable region in the head of the child page, you would just
    paste your head content directly in. To use the editable attribute in the
    body tag of the child page, you would need to select MODIFY | Template
    Properties, and edit through that user interface.

    u would ADD an editable region to the head (the way a properly created
    template in DMX/DMX2004/DW8 already does), e.g.,
    You say "properly created".

    Q. Okay, so what did I do incorrectly that makes this template NOT properly
    created?? I need to know for the next time I do it. I've never had a problem
    with my templates, and the only reason I discovered 'this problem" is because
    the FV would not install in the editable content region.

    Q. If I create an editable region in the content, does DW automatically
    create one in the head knowing it's a template? I've never had to create that
    separately, but then I've never put a FV on a template-based page either.

    Try two things -

    1. Create a page with FILE | New > Basic HTML, then insert an editable
    region and save it with FILE | Save As..., and name it test1.dwt, saved in
    the Templates folder.
    2. Create a new page with FILE | New > Basic HTML, then insert an editable
    region and save it with FILE | Save as template, with the name test2.dwt.

    Look at the code on the pages.

    Although you have used legal operations in both processes, the first one is
    not the right way to create a template, and results in a template page
    without an editable region around the <title>, as well as without an
    editable region in the head of the page.

    Method 2 is the proper way to create a template.

    2. Create a new page with FILE | New > Basic HTML, then insert an editable
    ....save as template

    I've always known to "save as template" but maybe for some reason on this one
    I didn't. So I'll do a test one like you suggested and see if it does what
    it's supposed to do.

    Thank you for giving me that information because again when making templates I
    always save as templates and thus would not have thought I did any differently
    on this one.......thus I'd never have found the error.

    Thank you.

    <!-- TemplateBeginEditable name="head" --><!-- TemplateEndEditable -->
    </head>

    I took an existing index page, detached it from the old template, then I
    created an editable content area and resaved as a template and let DW update
    the old template and the old pages.

    So why does DW put the editable head tags open and closed right above the
    closing head tag? Should the opening editable tag be above the opening head
    tag and the closing editable tag be below the closing head tag???

    And using your examples, making a test1 and test2, the test2 saved as template
    has the same thing: < !-- TemplateBeginEditable name="head" --><!--
    TemplateEndEditable -->
    < /head>
    just above the closing head tags.

    My template has the editable region around the title and right above the
    closing head tags. And I've made the body tag editable.

    Still can't apply a FV within the editable content area on the video page
    because it tells me it's locked by the template.

    No. Don't be confused by the name of the editable region. It's not
    intended to make the entire head region editable - rather it just gives you
    an editable region in the head that both you and DW can use for page
    specific markup.

    It can't be. My method one produces pages without those editable regions.

    By using editable attributes, right?

    Does this method involve writing something into the body tag? If so, what?

    Here is a clean test page of the code that will need to go in the head tags and
    the body tags in order for a FV to work on the page.

    I haven't uploaded the actual video but you can see the code on the page.

    What is this FV going to do for you?

    Puts a video on the page. I have two clients that use video. But I've never
    put it on a TEMPLATE-BASED page, so I was using my site to learn how to do
    that. Her site is 98 pages - did NOT want to mess that one up. And her other
    site only has a home page at the moment which I put a video on for her, but
    again, it's not template based.

    FV on this page, but I haven't done anymore work on her site yet as I'm doing
    another one - she's next in the queue. :D She wanted this video on the page
    while she is waiting for the site to go up. So you can see this is not
    template based yet.

    That seems to be the problem I'm having - putting a video on a template-based
    page.
