If I have an older site that works just fine, why would the current versions of DW force me to include a Spry Assets folder when identifying the local version of that site?
Thank you for that.
It seems that the two clues for dealing with Spry (without dealing with Spry) is (if it's a Mac) to check for spaces in the HD name, and as you point out, include an appropriate folder name.
I asked my question on behalf of my wife, who previously used an earlier version of DW to construct and maintain a quite large website, and has returned to a similar role after a couple of years to find that her CS5 version of DW (which she hasn't used since purchased) has mutated Spryly.
I still happily use the CS4 version of DW, which doesn't press for Spry assets, to periodically polish a website I set up some years ago.
