I have created a template named Location Page, that is based upon another template called Menu and Footer Template. I have updated the style for #menu to "position: fixed;" on the original template Menu and Footer Tempate. However, the Location Page is not updating. I have tried manually updating both pages, and tried restarting computer/Dreamweaver see if a cache was still being used.

Menu and Footer Code:

Sorry if this sounds harsh but  never, never, ever nest templates.  I don't care how complex you think your site is, you do not need to nest templates ever.   Nesting causes nothing but  problems.  Besides, it defeats the whole point of using a template in the 1st place. 

Your Template should contain all CSS, scripts and site wide elements like your  header, navigation, footer and optional regions for elements  that may appear on some pages but not others.  All the rest will be inside Editable Regions for page specific content. 

How to design web pages based on Dreamweaver templates

Now might be a good time to learn about Server-side Includes (SSIs) too.  These work on the server so you don't have to re-publish your entire site when making updates.  A huge time saver.

templates will massively help with reducing the maintenance required. I have limited resources available to me.  Dreamweaver has guides to nesting templates. Is it a buggy feature? I am struggling to find much information it.

Templates are fine although I never use them. I prefer Server Side Includes.

Nested templates are a convoluted DW feature guaranteed to confuse you and give you maintenance headaches for as long as you deploy them. They never really took off as a DW feature so resources and tutorials are limited.

Server side includes are free. They're not a DW-specific feature as such but you can use them in DW. You just need to learn how to use them. You'll never regret it. They're simple and greatly reduce maintenance, far more than even DW Templates.

Templates are OK.  Although once you start using Server-side Includes, you won't  need Templates anymore.

Nesting isn't buggy.  But most people don't consider what nesting does.   By definition, a template.dwt has  total authority over child pages that are spawned from it.   When you nest templates, you weaken that authority by giving some of it to a sub-ordinate template.  That's when things start to get complicated.  Which template should you edit?  From which do you update child pages? 

It's a  lot simpler to keep everything under the control of 1 template.  Don't nest them.

I've read that SSI can impact SEO and do not always work with screen readers. If this is the case then SSI would not be a viable option for me. I basically have about 30 pages which are almost identical. I want a template for the sites background, header and footer. These will be common to all pages. I then want a template for the 30 identical pages.

Should dreamweaver be able to facilitate this and if so why isn't in working for me in the above code?

Are there any alternative options that would minimize the workload for maintenance and updates that do not impact SEO or impact accessibility?

Untrue.   SSI is a  server-side technology that has zero impact on search engine results or web accessibility.

Yes.  A Dreamweaver template will do exactly what you need if you  build it correctly which represents about 80% of your development time.

1) Define your site folder.

2) Jump start your project with a pre-built responsive layout in DW.  Go to File > New....  see screenshot.

3) Immediately save your newly created page as my_test_page.html

4) See link below for further instructions.

Got a link to what you were reading? I'm curious to see what arguments they put forward to support such claims.
