Dreamweaver templates When an HTML page is saved as a template, Dreamweaver creates a template folder at the root level of the local root folder and generates a file that becomes the source for all the pages that are applied to it.
If the file is moved from the Templates folder, or if the Templates folder is moved or renamed, the link will be broken.
It is very important to keep the file in the Templates folder where Dreamweaver creates it.
