Ok, so the site is 98% done when marketing comes to me and say's "can we put this on every page?"  We're talking over 100 pages so I thought I would come to the experts to ask if there's a way I cut and paste code into every page right before the /body tag.  PLEASE HELP!!

Let's take a vote, marketing people need to be shot!!!

did I mention an easy way, I'm sure dreamweaver has had to deal with marketing people before so I'm hoping there is a built in function for this.

There sort of is...

1. Open Dreamweaver.
2. Hold down "Ctrl" and press "F".
3. In the top options, set them to "Find in: Folder" (and choose the folder containing the pages) and "Search: Source Code".
4. In the "Find" box, choose something common to all pages where you want it, for example, the "<body>" tag.
5. In replace, type what you want to add, for example:

Find:
<body>

Replace:
<body>

<p>
This is some code.
</p>

6. It will check every single web file in that folder and replace all of them.

Hope this helps!

In the Edit...Find and Replace, you change the default of Current Document to Folder, Selected Files in Site or Entire Current Local Site.

Hi ibtaya,

For the next site you do, this situation is the argument for using a Template.  Had your site been template based, all you would have had to do is open the template, add the new content, and save the template.  DW would then go through every page on your site based on that template and update it for you.
