Dreamweaver templates suck

Heh, I’m probably going to get lambasted for this…but I’m going to step out and say dreamweaver templates suck! Now don’t get me wrong, they are very handy and they do limit the amount of time it take to make sitewide changes to global elements…but when you have a large site, they are just plain annoying. For instance, I now get to spend about 1 hour downloading pages of the site just so I can make 1 little navigation change. Then I get to spend another hour uploading them. Chances are my connection will be dropped at least twice so I will have to baby sit the stupid download/upload process.

Life would be so much easier if we just used a severside templating solution. You know, macromedia would make so many people happy (specifically programmers) if they just gave us a perl script that would update all files using a template in a site on the server. It would also save lots and lots of otherwise waisted bandwidth.

Now thankfully I was able to get a better idea of where this guy was coming from since he posted a comment at the following blog post:
