So I have tried to figure this out in a short time period. Without going down too many rabbit holes I figure I would just ask it here.

I am using a d/l template, changed the color scheme a bit. When I make the template into an index.html and transfer it to the site I lose my template.

Thanks in advance.

you need to make a page from the template not rename it then any change you make to the template you can update all child pages made from that template

I have taken what I thought was the correct steps in making a template into a page.

modify > templates > apply templates to page


If that is incorrect let me know.

Yes I got the part on how to save a template.

That's not the problem. If you look at the site it shows the template format just not the assets.

All your links begin file:/// which usually means you haven't defined your site correctly and the page is trying to locate assets stored on your local drive rather than the server.

Both approaches will work. Create from a template and apply template to page will both have the same effect.

Corrosive's right. I misread the question. But he's definitely not using the template right. The page has no user defined editable regions.
