Designing without creating templates

  • # September 16, 2008 at 4:50 pm

    I use Dreamweaver to organize my sites, and for the most part I like it. I do most of the coding by hand, and use it more for its "all-in-one" capabilities for FTP and some of the built in capabilities. One thing that I can’t seem to get the hang of for the life of me, however, is applying templates to existing pages; the corresponding regions never seem to match up, links within the <head> of a document in comment tags (ie conditional style sheets, etc) don’t properly re-rout, editable regions are inconsistent…I could go on.

    My question is, since I know that many of you don’t use Dreamweaver, how do you organize your sites, and do you create templates to help update your sites more efficiently? Are there any other ways to change multiple lines of code across a large number of pages? I can’t be the only one who has this problem, right? Your thoughts are much appreciated.
