    DW8 Major Problem help needed!

    mentlity Level 1
      I'm in DW8 I have had no problems up until today. Yesterday I made some style sheets and saved in a new site root folder. Today I opened DW8 to do some maintenance on an existing project, when I added content to a new page I saved and DW8 asks the page is not saved inside the root would you like to save there now? If I choose yes DW just goes to the drive the site is on, if I manually go to the folder where I need to save it won't allow me in (its not greyed) but I cannot save any pages in ANY of my existing site root folders. Anybody please help, I'm dead if I can't fix this. I'm in OS X

          Pick a site. Tell us what the path is to the local root folder in your site
          definition.

            Hi Murry, I forgot to tell you that about 3 hours ago I had a blackout and all my DW files are on a seperate drive. I believer the permissions may have gotten screwed up, let me repair or look into that first, what a day from hell!

                      I'm able to make changes to pages already in the site using save but if I open a new document and try to save it to any site DW8 will not open the root.....strange?

                        Sounds like the site definitions are goofed up.

                        Try this -

                        In Site Manager for one of these sites, EXPORT the definition. Then REMOVE
                        the site. Then IMPORT the definition you just exported. Does that help?
