View Full Version : New laptop - now DW doesn't recognise my site as a site?

I don't have much Dreamweaver exprience.

My laptop died, as they do :roll:. I had backups and have reinstalled Dreamweaver. I can edit my pages but have realised the FILES display looks odd is that DW is not recognising my site as a "site". If I click Manage Sites there is nothing there. The HELP, unhelpfully suggests I should have "exported" the site before and should now import it. GREAT!

Is there a workround to force it to accept my site, which IT created?

If you didn't export/import your site definitions, you have to put them in manually. DW doesn't run on magic ;)

So by creating a "new" site I can just tell it alll about the existing one - essentially giving relevant info? I assumed "new" meant start from scratch totally with blank content. Will give it a go.
