Need to figure out a way that version checks web pages and makes sure that people in my project team do not overwrite HTML pages that another member might be working on at the same time (sort of like what happens when you open a word document on the network that somebody else is already editing - it opens a read only copy).
I used to use a check-in/check-out system in dreamweaver but I've just done some research and it seems to have been replaced by some subversion feature but that seems to only update remote files automatically with local files - which is not really what i want at all. Is there a control feature in dreamweaver cs3 and cs4 (because some people in my team are using cs3) that prevents project team members accidentally overwriting other people's files?
Check In/Check Out is alive and well in DW CS3 and CS4. I use it daily.
About the Check In/Check Out system
Subversion is not a replacement for Check In/Check Out. It's an extra feature which people can use on a Subversion-enabled server if they wish.
