Dreamweaver template not making changes

Hello everyone,

I have been assigned to a new client and thus "take over" an existing website.

This website is setup in Dreamweaver using Templates.

The main Template is using "Param"s to switch the state of the button, on or off.

I create a new page and link it to this Template. By looking at the other pages code it appears I then change the menu button's state from "true" to "false" depending which one I want to be "on".

However, after doing this, nothing happens.

<!-- TemplateParam name="v01" type="boolean" value="true" -->
<!-- TemplateParam name="v02" type="boolean" value="true" -->
<!-- TemplateParam name="v03" type="boolean" value="true" -->
<!-- TemplateParam name="v04" type="boolean" value="false" -->
<!-- TemplateParam name="v05" type="boolean" value="true" -->

For example, I would like button 4 to be "on", yet there is no change to it's state.

Is there some other code I need to edit? I can't find any other editable region on the page so I am a bit perplexed.

Thanks for any info you can provide.

Ok, I have done some more research and it appears you must do this change through the "Modify>Template Properties" panel. Not by editing the code by hand.

So, I open this up, click on the button code I want to change, hit OK, and I can see that in the head it has changed the Param code.

The defaults are all "true" and the one I just changed is "false".

However, the button state still has not changed.

This perplexes me.

Any ideas would be helpful thanks
