Need Some Help!!

Zach:
Thanks in advance.
Okay, so the site that I'm currently building was designed by an outside company -- templates only. I'm just about 200 pages into a sight that might reach into the thousands of pages. The problem that I'm having, is that, for some of the templates, any changes that I make to the template will apply to the corresponding html pages, but will then also erase my progress. Specifically, I have pages which incorporate scrolling thumbnail pictures which also incorporate the use of hotspots over top, which also have applied attributes -- image swapping and URL links. So for some of these pages, I have upwards of 70 hotspots over just as many thumbnail images. If I go and make a change to the DWT file, even the smallest of changes, like the size of a box, it will then apply said change to the corresponding html pages (which is normal), but will also revert/erase/delete all of those hotspots that took so long to create. Basically, every time I need to make a template change, I have to rebuild all of my corresponding html pages. I can't afford to rebuild this stupid site over and over.
I'm attaching a link to one of my product pages: http://www.initial-attack.com/Military/Molle%20Pouches/Ammo%20Pouches/ammo_pouches.html
Any insight would be greatly appreciated.

Joe:
I'd love to help but you are in over my head. Sorry...

Pointyhat:
Do you have some sort of back end .php server? And is sounds like the template uses CSS.
What app are you using specifically to edit the site?

Zach:
I'm using Dreamweaver, I should have mentioned that. Sorry. Like I mentioned above, another company built these templates, so I'm going to have a chat with them, but ultimately this is my problem.

Zach:
And, yeah, I have it all backed up, but for whatever reason I'm having problems with file names. I was thinking of cutting and pasting in the code for the hotspots, re-apply the template to those pages, then paste in the code for the hotspots again. For whatever reason, that didn't work either.  :puke2:
