Yes, I do know. And the answer is NO. We do not have access to any Portfolio files. There's nothing to download and thus nothing to edit in DW. Portfolio is a basic DIY website builder. Pick a Layout Theme from 12 choices. Upload some images, add some text and hit the Publish button. That's pretty much it.
Portfolio Help Center & FAQ
I'm looking for information on this same topic. I understand the answer given here is a straightforward NO, but please bear with me as I ask again: Isn't it theoretically possible to copy the code from a Portfolio website using a browser's developer features, then paste that code into Dreamweaver?.
I created my current website with Portfolio and am happy with it. I'm a photographer and Portfolio's integration with Lightroom allows me to easily make changes to my galleries in Lightroom's collections and update them in Portfolio in an instant. That feature is so useful to me that I'm willing to live with the limited template options Portfolio offers.
I also arranged for my hosting provider to change DNS servers, so my Adobe Portfolio website appears in my own domain (ivangabaldon.com), without the "portfolio" part of the web address.
When I setup Dreamweaver to access my ftp account, files that make up my Portfolio website are of course not there, since they're hosted in Adobe's servers. I would love to be able to: 1) Copy code from my Portfolio site; 2) Paste that code into Dreamweaver; 3) If needed, complete my website in Dreamweaver with any graphic files that may not have been downloaded with the code (not sure if they would download or not); 4) Upload full website with code and files from Dreamweaver to my own server.
Doing the above would give me peace of mind, as I would have a complete backup of my site in my own server and would not be totally dependent on the Adobe Portfolio service to keep my business online in the future (for instance, should Adobe decide to discontinue the Portfolio service at some point).
Seems reasonable, doesn't it? 🙂
Try it yourself and see what happens. You will find that nothing works because you don't have the server-side technology to make it work.
To add weight to what Nancy has explained, Adobe have their own server side technology to make the site work. This is proprietory software and cannot be replicated anywhere else.
If you want to have a flexible Portfolio that can be hosted anywhere, it is best to shy away from the Adobe Portfolio.
