Attaching a Dynamic Web Template
Once you have a dynamic web template, the next step is attaching it to a new web page. In this example, we will be using the template created in a previous portion of this series. This file can be downloaded for free from the Windows Platform Media Gallery.
Begin by opening the web site that contains the dynamic web template in Expression Web if it’s not already open. Then, from the File menu, choose New and Create from Dynamic Web Template as shown below. (Click the image for a larger view.)
Once you’ve done this, the Attach Dynamic Web Template dialog box will appear on your screen.
Navigate to the directory that contains the dynamic web template you wish to use.
Select the file and click Open. A new untitled web page based on the template will be created in Expression Web. Along with that new page will be a pop-up box which gives you the option of viewing the log for the creation of that page.
If you ever receive an error when trying to create a new web page from a dynamic web template, viewing this log can help you find the problem. Click Close to exit this feature when you are ready to continue.
