Can I build website in MUSE and administrate in JOOMLA?
Anybody know if this works together?
This is not possible in Muse and it is unlikely that Adobe will offer such an option when they'd prefer you to use their own Business Catalyst CMS.
You might try http://www.artisteer.com/ to build templates/themes for Joomla and then use Joomla extensions to add design elements and functionality.
You can export the Muse web site as HTML and then upload it on any web host using any FTP client.
The process to use an ftp client is described in the following article: http://www.adobekb.com/using_3rdparty_ftp.html
CMS features will not be part of the Muse 1.0 release. We intend to add CMS features to Muse in the future that will work with Adobe's Business Catalyst platform. Business Catalyst already has CMS features (see http://www.businesscatalyst.com/product-tour/overview for more info), but Muse isn't yet able to take advantage of them natively.
Did NorthCape1 or Corey mark this topic as "answered"?
Usually the OP is best at flagging a topic as answered, if they truly believe their question was answered. ...at least that is how it typically works in Adobe's Jive forums.

Do you know Artisteer? Is it something similar to Muse?
I understand that I can export the site as html, but will it be possible to edit it from the backend..? I am new to Joomla, but I love Muse.
...I understand that I can export the site as html...
Abhishek Maurya misled you by saying that you can export "as HTML and then upload it on any web host using any FTP client". They apparently do not understand what Joomla is.
The HTML that you export from Muse is a bit of a mess. You would need to be an advanced web designer to make sense of Muse's output and modify it for use in Joomla or any other CMS.

I was not fishing for you to mark my post as helpful or as an answer. I was just confused how Corey's post was flagged as the correct answer as soon as he posted it.
Joomla has its own menu system and "widgets" so you should not bring either of those over from Muse to Joomla. That leaves very little need to use Muse.
Here's how to make a Joomla template:

I hired a VERY good programmer, and he could literally do NOTHING with the html and css that Muse exported. He was trying to build a CMS for me (before Adobe came out with their version of a CMS) and we just got nowhere with it. He tried to convert it to something Joomla could even understand. No dice.
That was a very time-consuming mistake for my project. Don't make the same mistake as me.
