Dreamweaver allows you to make changes to all template-based web pages site-wide.When changes have been made to locked regions in a template, you have the option of updating these regions in all template-based web pages.
Unfortunately Dreamweaver doesn’t handle this situation the way that it should, which would be to run one stream first and then run the second one.
The instructions above are the way that I found is best to avoid this problem.
I'm currently in the process of redesigning a website, and I'm using Dreamweaver templates and libraries to maintain a consistent look on each page.
I have some templates (files) that I create in Dreamweaver, for use with Contribute, i.e.
I create the template, other people create the content for our site based on the those templates.
The issue is that when I make a change to the template, I would expect the pages created in Contribute to be refreshed to use the new template, but that doesn't appear to be happening. You may wonder why the instructions above tell you to click Don’t update in step 4.The reason is that the left_file is contained in the template and in all templates and pages.So if you clicked Update in step 4, you create a process stream that updates those files. All format*templates were created from the template. If you clicked Update in step 4, a second process stream would be created when the template was updated with the change to the left_file in order to update all the file that use this template.So then we have 2 process streams running at the same time.Sometimes the two process streams try to update the same file at the same time and Dreamweaver may crash or the file will not be updated correctly.
