Should have updated to DW 6 some years ago but old and not doing much. - Anyway, am unable to reach the server of Ionos for my 5 or so sites. I'm trying to use Filezila... and appear to be reaching the 1 & 1 server. Is there an alternative to Dreamweaver as I now simply want to reach my site at 1 & 1 to stay in control and probably take down over the next 6 months or so - I'm getting quite old and it is getting a lot beyond me. Is ther an "FTP app" that might fit into DW 5. I started with, I seem to recall, a free copy of DW3 on the front of a PC/Web Magazine many many years a go.

 

May I say thanks in anticipation and hope I with the right community

I think you mean Creative Suite 5 and CS5.5.   Macromedia never released a version 5

My Windows File Explorer allows me to select multiple files and open them with any application I choose.

I don't remember a DW5.  There was a DW4 and MX6 after that but no 5.  So I assume you really mean Creative Suite 5 which came out in 2010.   Use Filezilla S/FTP client to connect with your server.  If that fails, contact your hosting provider to ensure you have the right server and log in details.

You're absolutely right Ms Oshea. Put it down to old age - it is/was Creative Suite 5 as I recall and almost certainly 2010 when I purchased my current PC. Had a similar problem some years ago but managed to overcome it and and continued using DW "5" OK. The present problem started maybe 9 months ago and at last am trying to resolve things. Have downloaded Filezilla (Free version) and hope to make headway with understanding its use. I think I've managed to reach the 1&1 server and am seriously thinking of taking down my websites. Am a little concerned about what happens to the addresses based around www.grifd.com and other addresses with extensions .org.uk as I don't want them to fall into dodgy hands.

So, thank you Ms Oshea - Nancy was my mother's forename

Owdun - forgot that I usually use GriffsGriff as my pseudonym although to be honest I cannot remember the one used when talking to "this" and Photoshop forums maybe more than 10 years ago. Incidentally, could not find Dreamweaver for sale details when reaching the Adobe website yesterday and in the past was usually taken with no trouble to my profile/purchases details. Not so yesterday.


Thanks for your helpful response Nancy.

Nancy, actually there was a DW 5 and a DW 5.5. I keep DW 5.5 (version 11 I think) on my desktop solely for the ability to select 10 or so files in a directory with Ctrl-click or shift and click to select a group and open with a right click. For my work that is extremely handy and just works. I haven't found that ability in any other editors at this point. Even ST and VS Code cannot do that.

You're right. I was thinking Adobe DW all along, not Macromedia. Duh!

Thank you one and all. Not quite there yet but pleased to get the listing of  the various versions.

Mine is CS 5 V 11.0 Build 4993. Will not forget that in a hurry. As mentioned my first version was a Macromdia version  and, as I recall, a free disc on the front of a computer magazine, way back. So, it's been a long ride providing a high regard for Dreamweaver.

 

Hope to get to grips with Filezilla once I get over this long lasting cold

 

Best wishes to all
