Dreamweaver Ediatable Regions
meta tags

Msg#: 1401 posted 12:30 pm on Mar 8, 2006 (gmt 0)

I have created a site in Dreamweaver 8 based on a template however I don't seem to be able to put an editable region in the head tag, i.e. for the meta tags - title and descriptions etc for each indivdiual page.

Can any one help?

This is something I came across in dreamweaver templates a long time ago, and i'm afraid that even in the 8th edition, the problem remains.

BUT, the fact that you are using templates tells me that the whole site is roughly based around the same idea. eg, the product or service you are offering.

If you are for example a web designer, you can have around 15 keyphrases the same on each page, and just be more descriptive in your title tag which is editable.

Also, remember that some search engines, including google, apparently don't even look at your keywords, they concentrate on the title tag and the text in the H1 tags, among other things.

I regularly built web sites with dreamweaver templates and i still get good search rankings. Experience has taught me that content is king.

I may be misunderstanding what you want to do but this is possible in Dreamweaver

  1. Open the template in Code View
  2. Select the code that you want in the Editable Region
  3. Insert > Template Objects > Editable Region
  4. Choose a name for the Region

This has worked for me in the past.
