Now you need to make parts of the template editable so that you can put in content and add information that is unique to parts of the site. As the main content of the pages will keep changing, let's make that region editable. To make an area editable, you need your cursor to be in that location, and then right-click inside of the body column, select Templates > New Editable Region, give an appropriate name and click OK. If you are successful, you will notice a light blue with the name of the editable region in your cursor's location. You can continue to make changes, try different layouts, add new stuff in the Template.
Once you have successfully made your Template, your job is not yet over. You still need to make sure that all the pages are using the Template, so that when you update the Template the pages using the Template will automatically get updated. Now we will create a new page and try to apply the template to this new page. Go to File> New>Create. Now we created a new Web page. To apply the template to this page, you need go to Modify > Templates > Apply Template to Page. You need select the template. This should be the file name that we just created for the Template page. Now you can see this page has the same structure as the template. Other regions cannot be edited. The only region that is editable is the editable region you¡¦ve specified in the Template. You can type anything you want in this region. And you can save this page.
Once you made a template and applied to all the necessary pages, the
last step you need to know is how to update a template. This is the magic of
Any changes that you need to make in the basic structure of the site, you need to do in the Template. So go ahead and open your template Web page, then you can make any changes in this template page. For this page in this example, I want to add one more link on the navigation area. You can make any changes you want and then go to File > Save. If you have applied the Template to any of your site pages, you will get a window asking you if you want to 'Update Templates used in the following files'. You can click ¡§page1.htm¡¨ that you just created and click on Update, and close. To check if the new Web page that you created had applied the template, you can open File > page1.htm. Now you can see on the navigation area, the other link had been added.
