Dreamweaver templates not updating *.php file

templated updated all files except the *.php file

Hello everyone,

I have been given an exisiting website to update that uses Dreamweaver templates.

I have made the changes successfully within the content.dwt file, saved it, and then uploaded both the new content.dwt file and the related *.htm pages that were linked to it.

After going to the website to double check the new pages I found a *.php file that uses the same template, content.dwt, but it never asked to update that particular file.

So, I opened the *.php file in Dreamweaver and tried to apply changes from the content.dwt file to it using: Templates - Update current page, but no such luck. Since there is no code at the start of this file like the other *.htm files how do I "connect" it with the newly updated template. I tried making a small change on the content.dwt file so see what files would come up in the "do you wish to update..." list but for some reason the *.php file is not there.

Perhaps the answer is fairly obvious to someone who has worked with Templates a lot but since I have just started working with templates I still have a large knowledge gap in this area.

Any help would be appreciated.

Many thanks

Mr Zedd

I am perplexed as why all the other pages show
"<!-- InstanceBegin template="/Templates/content.dwt" codeOutsideHTMLIsLocked="false" -->"
in the source code but this php page shows nothing like that.

But, of course, it is still using the template. Is there some other place I should look for the "link" to the template with php files?
