Site Sculptor Won't import my Dreamweaver template.

Site Sculptor Won't import my Dreamweaver template.

Site Sculptor Won't import my Dreamweaver template (as either new or import).
The first time I did this (before I realized that I can't change the menus etc. once the wizard has been run - how useless is that?) it worked fine, but I had to take the site down and basically start all over.

So I know that it worked once, the CMS worked fine on the live site, and that I was not the problem.

Now when I try to import the dreamweaver template it totally screws up the view and bears no resemblance to my original design (see attached). I deleted the original site info, re-did the template, reinstalled Site Sculptor, etc.etc.etc.

Since purchasing the Super Suite My CS3 Dreamweaver has been crashing all afternoon, strange things are happening to my Mac OSX 10.6.5, and SS won't load my template. I'm 6 days into the 15 day trial and very frustrated so far.

The next comment is this: When you sell a Suite, there is an expectation that all of the components will somehow work together, and work for the life of the site. A website is always a changing thing, not static like this site sculptor seems to be. I had to completely strip down my Dreamweaver design in order to accommodate the program. You may think that you've simplified the php and CMS for us, but the "design" and especially the creativity factor is missing. Might as well use Wordpress or Joomla. BLECH.

Site Sculptor should work on any Dreamweaver Templates. Can you please attach your template so i can run a test to try to reproduce the issue.

Dreamweaver, SS won't import template

No, as I mentioned in the first post, when I found out that I can't post new pages on this static Site Sculptor program, I had to rethink everything and re-do (i.e. completely strip down) my original template.
Attaching the css file.
Just a reminder that when I purchased Theme-it a year or two ago, the same or similar issue happened with the template deconstructing.

I also need to know whether I apply Security Assist before or after the site goes up, if nothing can be added to the SS templates once loaded without screwing everything up, where would I put the log-in links?
There is a huge flaw in this program in that new pages are not added to the navigation. Also, because the home page and the pages attached to the template are different, any changes made to the template did not affect the home page, and they looked different in the original site upload. Unfortunately I only found this out after uploading it and then had to start all over again anyway, and then the recent problem happened...
