    Yes I can do search / replace in DW but am wary of changing over 8,000

    I will take Elimondos's advice and restrict it to the Perch templates.

    Many thanks all - got there in the end!

    OMG! its that simple. I have changed it to redactor and lo and behold I have a text formatter ribbon.

    Its a very simple set of buttons. If we wanted to change text color for instance do we have to do it in html?

    I realise now that you were only asking for the version, not saying that this will tell me what to do! Sorry!

    Thank you so much. I will give it a try and let you know how I get on.

    How does this tell me how to retrieve the text formatting ribbon in the text entry fields?

    Sorry, I am really confused!

    Sorry, I am still confused as to how to get a template working - my technical manager is away and he usually does this stuff.

    I have a customer on and there are no text formatting controls on any of the text entry fields.

    Please can you tell me in simple terms how I apply a template to the pages of this account so that text can be formatted.

    Many thanks, and sorry for my ignorance.

    Still not sure what I need to do here, but I have fixed the immediate issue by adding html code to the text for paragraph and bold text.

    But I should be able to get a ribbon as on this post shouldn't I ?

    I guess I need to re-read all the initial instructions - I haven't done this for years!

    Thank for your help

    I have the code below on my page and the editable region is fine.

    But the right hand column does not show up.

    What am I doing wrong please?

    <div id="content" >

    <?php perch_content('Snipe Mersea Trailers Page'); ?>

    </div><!-- end of #content -->

    <div id="sidebar-right">

    <?php perch_content('Right Hand Images');?>

    </div><!-- end of #sidebar-right -->

    I seem to have an editable Region now.

    I just have to get rid of the words:
    Page Title

    Paragraph text

    Then I have to add the right hand column

    Any help on this would be much appreciated

    Thanks, but I need a bit more detail please.

    I used Dreamweaver to put perch_content() into the new page, loaded it up, but no editable region appears.

    I tried making a copy of the index page and make that copy this new page so I could edit the content - still nothing.

    The page is now https://www.southamptondrystac…snipe-mersea-trailers.php

    I have managed to get a Region in there but its not a Page region - see below

    While waiting 4 hours for a response, I have now made a brand new page, followed the instrustions at…ting-started/using-perch/

    but I still have no Region
