can someone help me again i have created a template with a header and footer that works great but i am creating a cooking website so inside the template i want to create a page for diffrent recipes, so i want to lay it out so every time i upload a recipe the layout will be the same so instead of creating a new layout all the time can i make a template inside of my original template.
Can we assume you're using Dreamweaver to build your website?
A DW Template is all you need. However, nesting Templates is never a good idea. Besides, nesting isn't necessary for what you want. See help article below on using DW Templates.
That said, recipe sites & food blogs typically get very large very fast. Templates are fine for small sites but beyond 50 pages, you need a dynamic solution with content stored and categorized in a searchable database. Otherwise, the static site becomes too huge to manage and your audience gets frustrated because they can't find what they want. WorPress might be a better solution in the long run.
It makes the most sense to put your recipes in a database that can be searched and cross referenced. Then use server-side or client-side scripts to query data and populate a detail page with content. With sufficient coding skills or commercial extensions, you can do this in Dreeamweaver.
