I'm redeveloping my existing website, with the hopes of getting my users to help me keep the content of the site up to date through Macromedia Contribute.
I'm developing the site using Dreamweaver and Coldfusion and I'm creating dreamweaver template pages for each division/department/user. One thing that remains consistent on each of the pages is menu navigation, and I don't want my users to change this navigation on their individual pages. If we go with templates, I very well could end up having over 50 different templates, because each department wants their own images.
I was hoping that I could create a seperate file with the just the header and footer information, and then have all my different templates call that through <cfinclude>, but it doesn't seem to be working, it isn't picking up the images that are in the header and footer files, so it looks like the path isn't working within the template.
Is it possible to use <cfinclude> within the template pages. I realize that templates act differently than include files, and I want the benefits of the templates by not allowing my users to change certain consistant features, but I also want to only have (1) menu that I can easily maintain throughout the entire site.
Any suggestions or help would be greatly appreciated.
