I'm working on a new drupal 7 site right now (I'm new to drupal) and currently have given the ability to users to create nodes. The node creation page (url.com/node/add/) works just fine and uses the page.tpl.php template.
However, when I'm using the edit page (url.com/node/NODEID/edit/), it doesn't even load a page.tpl.php file. I went ahead and added some code to my page.tpl.php file to see if it would even read out--which it didn't. I've found that the edit page is inserting itself at the html.tpl.php level of the site. Is there a quick way I can get this to use page.tpl.php or by creating a node--edit.tpl.php or something? Hopefully I have made enough sense, but am stuck.
