I believe you may be looking for the files that you published for your website ... They are .bvp files and they are found on your computer in the MY DOCUMENTS area .... if you open your blue voda web builder and browse to find the individual file you are looking for, you can then make changes to this template by adding or changing one of the images you have inserted on your template ...

Is that what you are trying to do??

No - I know where my files are that I published to my website. I now they are .bvp files. I know this.
I made a template in BV, and saved as a template. I then used it by hitting New, from template and I made a page and made several pages fromthe same template, so i have the same look of course. Now I want to change one picture or change a hyperlink on one of the menu buttons and want that change to happen on all the pages i made with that template by just adjusting the template. Now i cant find where that template is, for example, I want to open that template and edit it and save it again but I cant find where it is.

If you made a template in BV, then you could only have saved it as a .bvp file and I would assume you saved this .bvp file by the name of template ... Since you know where your .bvp files are, your template will be there, unless of course you have overwritten this file when you were making other pages. If this is the case, open one of your other pages, clear off the added content, save it again as template ... the page you clear off will remain in the previously saved state ....

However, you cannot make one change on your template and it universally change all of your pages ... changes are needed to be made on each page you created.

There are several methods to build your menus so that you can make universal changes ...

1) The I frame method, which is not always recommended due to the search engine problems ....

2) The .php method

Neither of these I am all that familiar with. Navel, an administrator of this forum is the expert in these two areas.

I would suggest finding some posts about this written by Navel Design ...
