This is going to be a long winded question so bare wuth me :)
I am using Dreamweaver CS3 and working with templates.
I have 2 templates "details page" and "pages".
I created a folder containing pages based off both templates and named the folder "duplicate_for_entry.
In the folder there contains 21 webpages. 1 based off "details page" and 20 based off "pages". The files based on the "pages" template were renamed to "page1" "page2" and so on.
These pages have links linking to each other within an editable region. The links are based on a "next" and "previous", for instance the details page being the first page has a "next" link pointing to "page1" and "page1" has "previous" poining to the "details" page and "next" pointing to "page2" and so on.
I use this folder when I want to create a new entry into my website. I duplicate the folder and then rename it to the article contained in the folder.
My problem here is when I duplicate the folder all the links in the folder are pointing to the files in the duplicated folder "copy of duplicate for entry" and there is nothing wrong. BUT when I rename the folder to the name of the article, for arguments sake I will call this folder say "article" the links do not point to files inside "article" folder they remain pointing to "copy of duplicate this for entry". Meaning that these links do not update even when I tell dreamweaver to update links, it ignores the "next" and "previous" links.
Needless to say this has become very frustrating as it does create more work for me having to go into the folder and redo all the links.
My question is, Is there a way to make the links update properly? Or is there a workaround that I can use that may help me do this faster or more efficiently than the current method I am using?
