Editing a template-based web page

A page based on a Dreamweaver template (a template-based page) has editable regions, where you can add or edit content, and locked regions, where you cannot add or edit content.

Note: If you try to edit a locked region in a document based on a template, the pointerchanges to indicate that you can't click in that region.

When you view a template-based page, you see outlines around the editable regions. The editable regions each have a tab at the upper left giving the name of that content area. The tabs show you where you can add or update content on the page. [View Image]
