    Unlocking a page

    Jules1221
      I need to edit a page in dreamweaver that has been locked because the client uses contribute to edit that page. How do I unlock this page so that I can edit it?

          You are at risk of overwriting changes made by your client. Why not call
          him/her and ask if they would please check that file in?

            I've downloaded the latest version of the html page so that I would be working in the right file. Our client is not very computer savy, so I am not sure that they would even know how to check a file in, and I don't know enough about it to tell them how to do it.

              Not if the client has made changes to their checked out version, and not yet
              checked those changes back in.

              Apparently they knew enought to check it out, no?

              Select the file in Contribute and Publish it. Or maybe just ask them if
              they have made any edits to that page. If they have not, tell them to
              cancel their checkout in Contribute.
