I am looking for the answer on the internet,but unfortunately nothing useful found.
Is anyone else ever has this problem?
wait and wait, wait, wait...someone help me please
Are you previewing in browser or DW Live view?
Thank God, thank you Brad, I preview it in the browser. I remember it was OK before. But now it is wrong and I uninstal and re-instal the DW, but it is still wrong. I don't know what's wrong.
I don't have CS4, but I tested this in CS5.5 and this is not how it works for me. I used BC Extension to log in and download the site locally. Once the site was downloaded I went to Local View inside Files panel and opened a page. To preview that page I went to File > Preview in Browser > Chrome and what happens is that DW preforms a put action (uplaods the file to the actual site) and then opens that page on my site in Chrome.
I really don't know why it behaves so differently on your machine...
Did you use a third party FTP to download the site and then are trying to edit and preview them?
Make sure that you set up the site in Dreamweaver first then us Dreamweaver to get the entire site. Sounds to me as if you havn't got the site set up properly in Dreamweaver. If it is set up properly you should not get that issue. When previewing in a browser Dreamweaver wants to view from the testing server generally. If the site is not set up correctly in Dreamweaver things just don't work - thats not a BC thing, that is a Dreamweaver thing.
Thank you Brad, it seems that it dose be a strange problem that no one else have.
Before, I was not clear about the relationship betwwen the DW and the business catalyst extension. I ever got my BC website through the 'new site' fuction and set the sever by hand. Maybe because of my hand-set configuration, something goes wrong. But I re-intall the DW. It still does work~~
Hi Mario, thank you for your reply. how about preview the template file in the 'template' fold?
That is as I expected. I be;ieve you are not following the correct way to set up your BC site.
First, make sure you have the latest BC extension installed.
Then login to your BC admin using the BC Panel in Dreamweaver.
Once logged in you will see a list of sites associated with your partner portal
From there is where you can select and set up the site properly and automatically.
DWT templates can't be previewed from File > Preview in browser. DW will send you to .dwt extension which can't be handled by BC.
Any case, for previewing you can always do Alt+Tab or Command+Tab and F5.
