I have a website that is currently on a template that I got from DW CS4. I'd like to use another dreamweaver template that I found online.
Am I doing this right?
I imported the template into DW. Do I replace the header graphic with one I build myself? That's what I've started doing but want to check to make sure.
Also, there are lots of areas in there that have sample text. Do I create my own sample text and then save as template? Or do I just create a page with my own content, save as template and then cut and paste all the rest of the pages one by one? Or do I use the "create page using this template" command?
It's kind of confusing. If anyone knows of a step by step tutorial I can use, I would appreciate it.

Sorry, I picked you up wrong, my fault.
1. Yes, you would replace the header graphic with your own if the one provided is not suitable.
2. You would not create or replace your own sample text. If you do this then you are restricted to the pages provided with the template. If I were you I would modify the template to suit your needs then create the new pages you require from this.
(Regarding copyright, be careful if you are using any of the images and graphics supplied with the template. Ensure that there is no copyright on the images or it may come back to bite you later. There are thousands of instances on the net where free template providers have supplied their wares with copyrighted images and users have been pursued for this when caught using them online.)
I should just delete the boxes or graphics that I don't want or need, and replace sample text with one page of my own text.
Then do I use the "apply template to this page" command for all my other pages? I have about 40 other pages so I want to do this in the quickest possible way.
I'm wondering how this works if it's coming from another template. Or maybe I should just accept it on faith and not worry about how it works! I just need to make sure I am doing it right. My site is online right now and I really don't want to mess anything up.
