1st, I am new to website maintenance, so be nice ;-)
We did not build the website but use Contribute to edit.
Sometimes when I go into Contribute to make changes I get a message
saying that I need to create a connection, I can not edit the page.
Since I'm new to this, my only work around has been to close
Contribute, re-open it and the create connection message is gone.
But I recently added a page, linked to it, and everything worked
great (I was very proud of myself). Now when I go to that same page
to make a few minor changes, I get the create a connection message
and closing Contribute and restarting does not work. I have gone
through the first few steps to creating a connection but then I get
a message that says:
is a child website of your existing connection to
Your new website will have its own user and role settings. It's
settings are not affected by
I thought maybe it was because in the create connection steps
I entered the page that I was having problems with and not the home
page for the website, but if I enter the home page I get a
completely different error message.
I have tried contacting the designers of the website (who
recommended Contribute, BTW) and their suggestion was that I should
go to a Contribute training class, because they can not help with
that program because they do not use it. I do intend on taking a
training class, but it is not for another month and I need to edit
this page now.
I know I am rambling - completely out of frustration - but if
anyone has any suggestions PLEASE let me know.
