hi guys. I hope you can help me.

I have been searching for an answer to this one. It seems to be a common problem. So far I have no been able to find the solution.

How do you add an editable region to the <head> tag in a .dwt?

I am using the adobe developers tool kit in dreamweaver CS3. It is asking for an editable region in the head to place scripts.

Any ideas?

Thanks for helping me out.

I haven't used CS3 but I would assume that this hasn't changed. When using DW templates I always make the meta content editable with the <head> section. You can do this in code view.

<head>
...
...
...
<!-- TemplateBeginEditable name="whatever" -->
<title>Your Page Title</title>
<meta name="Description" content="Your description"/>
<!-- TemplateEndEditable -->
...
...
...
</head>

Does this help?

My DW comes up with:

<head>
<!-- #BeginEditable "metatags" -->
<title>jnydnnysmy</title>
<meta name="description" content="sjjtjjsj">
<meta name="keywords" content="jtjtjjs">
<!-- #EndEditable -->
<meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=iso-8859-1">
<link rel="stylesheet" ...
<link rel="shortcut icon" ...
....
....
</head>

See which works for you.

I select a bit of text in wysiwyg, go to modify > templates > new editable region, and call it 'metatags', then go to code view and transplant it manually to the <HEAD>, and insert the stuff that needs to be unique per page (title / meta kw / meta desc).

Works for me!
