In dreamweaver can you put a template that you've created around multiple content in one fell swoop?
For example, let's say I have 1,000 pictures, I want them all to be in my template form (they also have their own navigation and descriptions on their individual pages).
Is there a button I can use to say "put template on all"?
Or do I have to put the template one at a time?
I have the latest dreamweaver, mx, or 8, whichever is most recent

You can't do that, it would have to be the other way round that pages are spawned from the .dwt file.

If you're very very good with find-and-replace -- AND if you back up your entire site before attempting this -- AND if your existing photo pages are consistent in all the code before and afer the photo/description part -- then you could possibly do a sitewide find-replace to replace all the non-template code with the template code. It would take at least two passes -- replace all the code before the photo/description bits, and all the code after them.
However, you should not do this unless you feel confident of your find/replace ability, and you should absolutely back up your site beforehand. You're been warned: if the whole things gets totally mucked up and you didn't back up first, you'll have only yourself to blame.
Provided you do a complete site backup first, there's no harm in trying it.

thanks for all your help
can you also take off a template from all the pages on your site in one swoop?
what happens to a site that wants to put all content into a newly formatted template? just saving the new template as the old one and then it will update all of them?
i guess that might work no?
also: my content, when i put a template around it, all gets put into one size font, even if i have it differently sized in the pre-template content, is there any way to avoid this changing of the font once you put the template around it?
