How do you edit a page?

Okay after the first 24 hours I can say I am completely frustrated so far with the Design Suite. I have completely given up on the site Assist stuff. But CSS Sculptor looks like it has promise, but I can find no way to edit a page once its built.

Example, I built a basic page without changing any defaults or anything ...

I want to add a CSs Menu to the left column, so I delete the text that there but there is no way to change the margins other than in the DW interface. i could do that before purchasing Sculptor.

I can't change colors without completely redoing the page.

I cannot even add a simple SSI in the footer with copyright info without breaking the page.

Documentation is very poor.

I know I am new to this product and will give it time, but I am sorry, the first 24 hours have been nothing but frustrating.

In CSS Sculptor you are not able to reenter the wizard to make changes. Once the page is created, you will need to make your modification to the css that is being applied to the page. And Sculptor gives you the ability to save preset so any changes you make are saved in a custom preset that you could use more than once.

I would recommend you take a look at some documentation located at:

css-sculptor


In regard to changing the margin or the color, that could be done easily by changing the css that is generated.

Let me know if you have any additional questions.

Thanks Dani,

So what your saying then is that if I want to make a change to a page like add a content box or even change text color I have to completely redo the page from scratch again?

There is no way to alter one element on the page without doing it directly in the CSS file (which I could do without Sculptor)?

So I create a ten page site and the customer wants something changed in the color or column width you have to completely start over?

So what exactly is the advantage of using Sculptor if you have to edit everything by hand on every page anyways?

I have read the documentation. Tells me nothing.

Stick with it Brad you will get the hang of using the webassist tools, the main thing with CSS Sculptor is to get the page layout to how you want it and save it as a preset that way you dont have to keep going over all the other steps you have done which can be quite a pain with more complex layouts.

With site assist you will need the page generated by CSS Sculptor or a dreamweaver template that you first have to set up in the layout manager then use site assist.

Hope you get the hang of it soon.
