What is a DWT file?

A DWT file is a template used to create multiple webpages with similar content and formatting in Adobe Dreamweaver, a popular web development program. It contains a webpage with editable regions defined by the user and non-editable regions that affect all pages designed from the template.

DWT files are helpful assets to developers because they allow them to save time and work. By utilizing DWT files, developers only need to make an edit once and the changes will be reflected on other related pages.

The editable regions designated in a template are the areas that you want to be edited individually on webpages that won't affect other webpages generated from the template. The non-editable regions are the areas you want to remain the same on all the pages such as menus, navigation bars, logos, and footers.

You can save a webpage as a DWT template in Dreamweaver by selecting File → Save as Template.... When you create the DWT file, a folder named "Templates" will be created in your website folder and the DWT file will be placed in it.

NOTE: Dreamweaver was originally developed by Macromedia. Adobe acquired Macromedia in 2005 and the program is now developed and distributed by Adobe.

How to open a DWT file

You can open DWT files with Adobe Dreamweaver (Windows and macOS) by selecting File → Open.... You can also open DWT files with MacroMates TextMate on a Mac.
