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. 

 

  1. Code manually in PDO or MySQLi (improved).

  2. Buy 3rd party extensions from WebAssist or DMX Zone.

  3. Or develop your web apps visually with Wappler.

Well as this is a part time college course and I'm a chef the rest of the time I think wordpress would be better for me. I have done a site for a friend on wordpress and I really enjoyed it. I'm just trying to make a career at 44 and thought web design would be good
