Hello & HELP! I purchased Dreamweaver last year after Contribute was dropped by Adobe. I built my complete website using Contribute, but I'm having lots of trouble with Dreamweaver. I am trying to do simple editing, but a pop-up keeps saying "page is checked out by (me) - do you want to over ride?" I am the sole user.
I am able to 'Get" a page and do some editing, but it will not let me "put" that edited page.
Also, the "check-in" button is locked and I can't figure out how to unlock it.
Any simple suggestions in layperson terms (I'm basically useed to Contribute). Thanks in advance! John
The file check-in/check-out feature is unique to Adobe Dreamweaver / Contribute. It doesn't work in other editors.
You can try disabling it from your Site definition settings. Go to Site > Manage Sites... Edit remote server settings. See screenshot.
Failing that, try downloading files from your server again with a 3rd party FTP client like Filezilla or Cyberduck. That should strip out the file check-in/check-out data.
