Not recognizing editable regions

I'm trying to trouble shoot an issue with my template.  This is a project that isn't updated often, this issue I noticed when my Dreamweaver version was updated.  Since this project is not updated very often I can't say which version it worked in and which version caused it not to work.  I am currently using DW 18.0

When I open my template file, I am removing some outdated code.  When I save the .dwt file, I get "This template doesn't have any editable regions."  But there are in fact many editable regions.  Snippey it below of my template file. And also a file created from the template.

<!doctype html>

<html lang="en">

<head>

<meta charset="utf-8">

<meta name="viewport" content="width=device-width, initial-scale=1">

<!-- TemplateBeginEditable name="doctitle" -->

<title>my amazing site</title>

<!-- TemplateEndEditable -->

<link rel="icon" type="image/png" href="../htdocs/favicon.ico">

<!doctype html>

<html lang="en"><!-- InstanceBegin template="/Templates/basic-page.dwt" codeOutsideHTMLIsLocked="false" -->

<head>

<meta charset="utf-8">

<meta name="viewport" content="width=device-width, initial-scale=1">

<!-- InstanceBeginEditable name="doctitle" -->

<title>a page on my site</title>

<!-- InstanceEndEditable -->

<link rel="icon" type="image/png" href="favicon.ico">

Sorry, I changed this...

<!-- TemplateBeginEditable name="body-class" -->

<body class="home">

<!-- TemplateEndEditable -->

...to this...

<body class="home">

<!-- TemplateBeginEditable name="body-class" -->

<!-- TemplateEndEditable -->

I understand what you're going for, trying to make the body tag's class modifiable, but I'm pretty sure you can't do that with an Editable Region.

Where's the rest of the code?

The warning usually pertains to the editable regions in the body of the page. More of a "hey you goofball, you're forgotting to make it so you can change the content of the page" type of warning.

I don't think you can split a tagset like <body></body> with template comments, that appears to be confusing DW.

When I modify only that, to place the entire editable region before or after the opening <body> the error goes away.

It's been a long time since I've used DW's Templates. I've totally given up on them in favor of using server side includes for my repeated areas instead. It's a lot less hassle than the often quirky .dwt files are.

I'm not quite understanding what you changed.  Did you change it to just one editable region? Can you send me your snippet? 

Our future thought was to move it our of DW templates, and replace it without our own template system we developed. But if I could get it working in the short term that would be helpful.

appreciate the quick help on this!

Thanks!!  Back to working again.  This used to work in an older version, but happy to have a solution in place for now.

I went back and did some digging, you can make the class in the <body> tag editable, but not with an Editable Region. To do it, you need to use the Make Attribute Editable function...

1. Click on the body tag
2. Choose Tools > Templates > Make Attribute Editable
3. In the dialogue that appears, verify it is asking you to set attributes for the BODY tag

4. Check the "Make attribute editable" box

5. Verify Label is set to "class"
6. Verify Type is set to "Text"
7. Add a Default setting (like "home")
8. To edit the attribute on a child page, open it and go to Edit > Template Properties
9. Select the "body" from the list
10. Set the new class in place of the default text
