In DW templates you have EDITABLE REGIONS and NON-EDITABLE REGIONS.

The whole idea behind this is that you will set the stuff that every page should have in common as NON-EDITABLE REGIONS (menu, header, footer, etc), and the stuff that will be different in every page as EDITABLE REGIONS (title, news, etc).

The only thing that DW will actually update from the template is the content inside the NON-EDITABLE REGIONS since every page should have different content inside the EDITABLE REGION, and updating this would render the whole template concept useless.

Make sure that the content you are updating is inside a NON-EDITABLE REGION or it won't be updated.

Did this solve your problem?

Best regards,

Esopo.
