[Pro] download Freeway Pro 7 site

I have been asked to help maintain and update a small site for a local club. Two of us share this responsibility. We use Freeway Pro 7 software. Is there a method I can download the current site information, make the needed changes and repost it? If we can do this it would make maintenance of the site much easier.
Thank you - a rookie in Texas

Consider dropbox!

Only found an older list about:

Haven’t tried it ever, so can’t tell you if it is practicable, but assume it is.

Cheers

Looks like you’re planning to import HTML into Freeway, right? Can’t be done. Freeway is an HTML generator, not an HTML editor.

Depending on how large the site itself is you could be doing yourself a favor in collecting screen dumps of each page using W3Capture (which creates complete page screenshots), and use them to rebuild the page step by step.

Hi Chuck,
Try putting the Freeway site in your shared Dropbox folder as Thomas suggested. I do this quite a lot when sharing Freeway sites and it works ‘quite well’ although you will find yourself relinking images and other files in the Edit > Resources dialog each time you open a file saved from another machine.
Make sure both Macs are using the same versions of Freeway and the same Actions and fonts and you should be OK.
Regards,
Tim.

Thomas, Richard and Tim,
Thank you for your time and effort in responding. I guess this going to be a lot harder then I expected but at least I have a direction to head.
Thank You,
Chuck

I believe Tim Plumb houses FreewaySyle at least partially on DropBox. The downloads on that page are a dropbox link, but I can’t recall if he keeps the native FreeWay files on dropbox. I thought I read something about that once. Perhaps there’s a way.

Sorry can’t help more, I’ve never tried it!

Hi Doty,
Yes all of the Freeway files over at Freeway Style are hosted on DropBox. They’ve been on various sites over the years (Droplr, Box, etc) but I find DropBox fast and easy to manage.

The files are essentially only there to download. Projects I’ve shared with fellow Freeway users on DropBox are saved in a shared folder so both parties have the ability to open and update the files which, pretty much, works well as long as you don’t want to work on the site at the same time. That would be bad.
Regards,
Tim.

Tim,

Do you keep the native FW document and associated Site Folder on DropBox as well? Or is it just for “finished” work?

I’ve never needed to do this, but it would be great to know that it’s possible.

I do. It works quite well for collaborative working as long as you remember not to open and publish the Freeway file at the same time.
Regards,
Tim.

Can you be more specific as to what stops you from finishing a site.

Is/are there particular features you cant incorporate?

Can we see online something that remains uncompleted with some idea of what you have left to do?
