Luckily, Dreamweaver recognizes that this is a very important part of Web page development.
If you've ever built a site with more than around 10 pages, you'll recognize the value in having shared include files that you can edit once and update your entire site.
and when I go to edit the template and library files in Dreamweaver, they do not update their child-pages. I went back into my other drive (that I had initially made the website in), and updated something on the template page, and a thing pops up and goes through the process of updating each of the child pages. Does anyone have any idea what is going on with copying the files to another drive, that makes it not update?
Updating the original file will not update the files in other drives unless you are using some kind of version control, you will have to update all the copied files manually.
A way to do this is copy the site over to another drive that is accessible to others in the company I'm working in.
The problem is, I copied (ctrl a) & (ctrl c) and pasted all files into another folder (on another drive)...
Unfortunately, this is not possible with straight HTML.
Dreamweaver also provides access to two special types of assets—libraries and templates.You can create a library item to contain the slogan and use that library item on every page.For example, where information is used for many purposes, such as a course title, it is pulled from the system to fill many required formats.Once you have a library item, you can use it on any page in your site.Simply drag the library item to the new page, and Dreamweaver will place code there indicating that the code displayed is a library item.
