TEMPLATE WITH BOTH TABLES AND LAYERS UPDATING WRONG

I have a tepmplate with tables and then pictures added here and there via different layers.  I designed a new template and am now trying to update all my exisiting pages only to find that the layers seem to disappear.  The pictures are there but they are no longer inside a layer they are just put in line within the table.  Also the text is all different sizes, so the whole page becomes out of whack.  Can some one point me in the right direction?

Hi Kathy,

When you say you "designed a new template", is it a totally different file or did you update the existing template to use layers instead of tables?

If the former, did you detach from the first template then apply the new one?

It is a totally different file.  How do I detach from the first template?  I will look this morning to see how.

Can you have a template based page with both tables and layers and expect for it to update correctly when a new template is attached?  I'm new at this.  From what has happened it looks like the layers just get thrown anywhere, they do not stay where I originally put them.  Is this because the template was not detached before applying the new?

Applying a new template to a page that already has a template doesn't usually work that well.  You can up duplicating code (two HTML tags, two HEAD tags, two BODY tags, etc) in the non-editable regions and that can write invalid HTML which may result in the problem you are seeing.

I would copy the body content, start a new blank page, apply the new template, then paste the content into the new editable region.

Even if you detach the template first, the HTML is all still there.  Applying a new template may still cause the same issue.
