I have a similiar question to jclub's. I have 1.4 and want to
upgrade to 1.6.
I downloaded the extenstion and files and it was successfully
installed in my DW CS3. However, I do not see any new widgets on
the tool bar, and I am confused on how to get them to appear on a
new web page.
I almost upgraded to 1.5 but I decided to wait, 'cause it
seemed that you had to do some manually copy/pasting of files.
(which scared me a bit)
Is that still true? Do I need to copy/paste the
...configuration/shared/Spry folder in order for the new widgets
and other stuff to work??
No, The extention mentioned above by Barascu Diana does all
the nasty copy stuff for you (yeah!) The only thing it does not do
is add the new widget avaiable to the Spry bar in Dreamweaver.
If I remember correctly, Adobe/macromedia didnt build
dreamweaver with that in mind (i.e. being able to add new widgets
to that bar). I do remember someone saying they would pass that
along to the developers in the hopes of being able to do that in
the future (and by future they meant not anytime soon)
please note. You do still have to update any sites your
working on (i.e. live sites) with the lastest spry in the
/SpryAssets folder that they usually get dropped into.
Any new sites you create after the update will have the
updated 1.6 files, but existing ones wont. Hopefully that made
i.e. the extention wont roll through all your configured
sites and upload the new spry files for you.
p.s Be care when updating your live sites, ESPEICALLY if you
have modified any of the CSS files with changes to the look/feel of
the spry widgets.
