Hi Eaddy,

This is probably due to a path not rewriting correctly from the /Templates/ folder to the folder that has the created page.  This is a long noted and notorious bug in DW.  Check the paths to see if this is the case.

Also, which version of DW is this?

Thanks.  That option is only there in versions 8 and CS3, so once you told me which version, it becomes the first guess.
