I followed the ECT tutorial for using Expression Web -- First step says to open the DWT file, check the box to use the hidden metadata files, and do a File Save.
After doing this, it says it was attached to 16 files and would I like to update them.
IMPORTANT NOTE: You cannot remove metadata from a site stored under My Web Sites on your computer.
by Christopher Heng, Nearly all websites have more than one page.
Creating multiple pages for a website is a relatively simple task; things only get troublesome when you want to make a design change that affects all the pages of your website.
Imagine having to go through every page on a site with hundreds of pages, just to (say) add a new button to your navigation menu.
Certain options in the Site Settings and Properties dialog boxes are unavailable if your site does not have metadata.
No matter what I do, I can't get any of the attached files to take any updates that I make to the DWT file.
Finally, you will also learn how to get Dreamweaver to automatically figure out which pages of your site to upload without your having to manually open and upload every one of them.
If you look at all the pages on using a desktop browser, you will probably have noticed that practically every page shares the same basic layout.
The question occasionally comes up in various Expression Web groups and lists over what to do when pages with a DWT attached do not update when changes are made to the DWT. If all pages have updated, the numbers should match.
If they do not, not all pages have been updated with your changes.
