    Help with footer not working

    I have a footer that has been on my site for years and now when I go to update the footer with new links the other pages don't change on the footer. Can anyone give me some insight or tell me what might possibly be wrong?

    Thanks

    The only way the footer on the other pages would update with the new links would be if you created the footer as a serverside include. Or if you used something like a Dreamweaver template to create the pages. Did you do that?

    If not, then the other pages would not update automatically, you would need to go in and change all the links manually.

    I used dreamweaver and might site has been online for 5 solid years and when I went to update the footer nothing changed on the other pages. I had someone that has never been to my site and it was confirmed the update was not succesful.

    NadiaP do you know how to correct this with a paragraph turorial ? I'm no expert but I learn fast

    Thanks

    Yes, I''m a Dreamweaver user , so I should be able to help :-) it really all depends on how the pages were created... can you post a link to the site so I can take a look at the code - or if you don't want to share the url, you can PM me and then I'll post back here...

    Did you use a Dreamweaver template to create all the pages?
