Dwt not updating
Your editable regions should look like Fig 4, outlined in yellow (colour depends on the settings you have, the default being yellow) with the name of the editable region.
View Screenshot - Fig 4 - Editable Region outlines ATTENTION - I have outlined further information under the below headings you should pay particular attention to the Head Tags and Scripts if you want to retain your keywords and description Meta tags and any scripts for each page.
So enter that in the section where it says Region name: Then press ' Add', then ' Close'.
NOTE: The editable region name must be all one word and in lower case and you can call it anything you want, however relating it to the placement on the page helps keep it straight for you.
If you have any scripts within the head tags when you first attach a dwt to a page it wont be preserved.
You want to in fact keep your original code with the editable meta tags around the metas.
Of course you can use the Addons as a tool and copy and paste meta tag to code view or in page properties General Tab for each Meta.
