View Full Version : Breadcrumb trail, DW not updating my pages

10-05-2014, 01:34 PM
Hi all,

I'm using DW CS5 and am trying to insert a breadcrumb trail into my site (www.wheels-aloud.co.uk) following the instructions I found here:


The problem I am having is that when DW updates my site, it seems to just hang. Not doing anything.

If I remove all the coding I have been instructed to put in from the above site, DW updates no problem.

Is there anyone that can advise me on what I may be doing wrong or why DW will not complete updating pages for me???

Many thanks in advance for any help given.

can you put up a page with the script included, maybe call it index2 so we can see it in (in) action

Hi Edbr,

Thanks for your reply.

That's the problem I am having, I can't see it in action as DW doesn't update my pages to then allow me to upload it to my server.

I get as far as to insert the code into my page but nothing further.

Hope this helps.

do you mean update the template? are you putting it in the right regions?

That's right. I put one of the code snippets in the head section of my template as the head section of my individual pages are not editable. Then the other code in each page I want the breadcrumb trail, then I tell my template to update and all relevant pages but this is where I have problems. It's not updating.
