The important thing is, when you want to update something that is added as a library item, you need to make the changes in the actual library item, not in one of the instances where it is being used. And after saving the changes, you need to click on Update. You have three options; current page, all open pages or project pages. Select the option that corresponds with your setup.
I have to say that I didn't use the library myself, I preferred php includes. But I made a wee test with three pages now, and it worked (I used 'all open pages').
Lets' say i've 10 files HTML where 5 are mainly equal and other 5 are mainly equal,
Inside each 5, i have 2 files of a A family and 3 files of B family, but between A and B change only some line of code and the rest is equal.
So i created 2 Library items : the A item will change the files where A item is inserted, the B the B one's.
But the strange thing is when i change In A item a line that is equal in B item, when i do the update to files, Coffe makes the update yes on the A html but also on the B html.
Hope is clear ...
file 1 inside a library Item A
file 2 inside a library Item A
file 3 inside a library Item B
file 4 inside a library Item B
file 5 inside a library Item B
Item A and Item B are 99% equal and they differ only on some internal menu link
If i modify the Item A on some other line equal in B, when i update A (so files 1 and 2), also files 3-4-5 will be updated but the menu link remain ok.
I checked twice and inside the files the Librarys refer are ok
i want to know why files 1-2 are correctly updated by item A but also files 3-4-5, without any refer to Library A item are updated the same
but is Holiday in US, so i asked also here in the forum.
tks for your help.
