Dreamweaver: Nested Editable Regions Error
Some people are encountering Dreamweaver nested editable region errors in Templates with Dreamweaver 8. After some checking, I came across a solution; not sure if it's the only solution, but it works, it's logical, and … it works.
Bottom line: check the Template's code well — not just the Editable Region tags. You may find that there's a missing tag somewhere — for instance, a missing closing </head> tag — which is why Dreamweaver is determining that you've got Editable Region nesting errors.
That is, if a tag isn't closed (say, the </head> tag is missing), then the editable <head> area isn't closed … and so the next editable area (for instance, your content area) is obvious "nested" in the head region. It's an HTML coding error, rather than a DW error.
Unfortunately, DW may not alert you by noting that the </closing> tag is missing. But let's remember that it's the weird coding that was throwing DW in the first place.
Kudos to the person in the Macromedia forums who gave a hint of the solution; sorry I don't recall the name.
