Hello,

Since my last posting I have managed to understand templates and the pros of using them however, I have noticed that I cannot change certain code fields (like those listed below) and obviously each page would be different.

<meta name="description" content=" My website based on whatever I like" />
<meta name="keywords" content="me, myself and I />

I am doing something wrong; yet again, but can someone explain where or how? I appreciate these may be daft questions, but I am still learning.

Many thanks for your assistance in advance,

Morrile

Hi Morrile

You can make these editable regions as well by indicating that in the original template file. The same way you have for your content which changes throughout your website.

Hello Corrosive,

As usual, you save the day; and in very quick time! I have manually moved the two lines of green code;
<!-- TemplateBeginEditable name="head" -->
<!-- TemplateEndEditable -->
Between those areas and it works fine, I can change text ad-hoc.

Many thanks again :)

No problem :)

Is code view starting to look a little less daunting to you now?
