Local network and FTP access - Macromedia Contribute General Discussion

Hi, I am used to using Dreamweaver In DW, you can modify local files and then load them to the server. This means you have a separate Acceptance and Production environment. Meaning you have two identical copies of your site, always. It does not appear that this can be done with Contribute. Can anyone confirm this? Regards alf......

    Default Local network and FTP access

    Hi,

    I am used to using Dreamweaver

    In DW, you can modify local files and then load them to the server. This
    means you have a separate Acceptance and Production environment. Meaning you
    have two identical copies of your site, always.

    It does not appear that this can be done with Contribute.

    Can anyone confirm this?

    Hi,
    In Contribute a local copy will be created at C:\Doents and
    Settings\<Username>\Local Settings\Application
    Data\Adobe\ContributeCS4\en_US\Sites\<site1>\ when you have connection and edit
    the some page. Once you Publish the changes it will get uploaded to the server.
    But not the entire site can be downloaded in Contribute as DW does.

    Thanks.

    But doesn't this mean that if you have your site definition set up as noted in
    the first post (i.e. the site is defined as a local network drive - all work is
    done there, then I use Windows Explorer to copy files to the "live" site) you
    will always have version problems, since Contribute is set up via the "live"
    site? This is how our site is set up and it causes problems - any time I want
    to do any kind of site-wide maintenance, I have to copy the live site to the
    local site in order to synch the two. How do you set up Dreamweaver so that you
    have a "work environment" and "live environment" but without having to
    constantly, manually synch to ensure that the "work envionment" includes
    recent Contribute changes? I know that I can define my site as the "live" site
    on the server, and then that eliminates the problem of out-of-synch copies of
    the site, but then I don't have that extra layer of protection if I make
    site-wide template changes, or design changes that I realize aren't working
    (whereas right now, it's not a problem since changes aren't made to the live
    site.
