Recommended upgrade procedure

What's the best/easiest way to upgrade pages already using iRite v1? Do I need to delete iRite and add in HTML Editor, or is there some other way to update the pages?

The easiest way would be to click on the iRite instance and click on the edit button in the properties inspector. HTML Editor will convert the instance to an HTML editor instance automatically. Make sure you delete your WA_iRite folder afterward, since you will no longer need this folder.

Another way you could do this is to just delete the iRite instance and WA_iRite folder and add an HTML Editor instance in.

Also, make sure you uninstall iRite before installing the HTML Editor.

If I have 50 pages that use iRite, can I update 1 using this procedure, keep the WA-iRite folder and have the existing pages continue to work?

Another question. I am doing some testing by installing HTML editor under a different user on the same computer for testing. That user did not have iRite installed, but to install on my working user, I have to remove iRite, so how can I

Won't it fail to recognize the iRite instance once the extension is removed. HTML editor did not recognize an iRite instance under my testing user.

Yes, if you keep the WA_iRite folder, the existing iRite instances should still work.

The iRite instance should be recognized by HTML Editor. Did you have iRite installed before installing HTML Editor on this other user? Also, what operating system and Dreamweaver version are you running?

Vista Home Premium x64 and DW CS3. No iRite was not installed under that user, but the website space is available to both users and iRite was used on the test page. I understand that I must remove iRite before installing HTML Editor, correct? The iRite instance was not recognized on the test user, but shouldn't it be the same as my primary user if i have to remove iRite?

Thanx for your time.

From our testing, HTML editor should be able to recognize iRite instances. Could you send me the test page that you are working with?

I really can't, but I don't know that you need to worry about it. This was all done on my local test server. I have customized iRite and now HTMLEditor adding plugins to the source code for my implementation.

I finished testing, removed the iRite extension from my primary user and installed HTMLEditor. It recognized the iRite instance on the same page the other profile failed to recognize.

All I can tell you is that the user where the instance was not recognized had not had iRite installed previously.
