    I need to be able to migrate pages done in Pagemill to another WYSIWYG editor without straining my brain. Is there anything that will do this without sending me to bankruptcy court?? Webmastering a LOT of stuff so am getting kinda desperate. . . Pagemill does not work with 10.4! Thanks for any suggestions.

    Dreamweaver or any other WYSIWYG editor should open the PageMill files.

    PageMill files are just HTML files...

    But... PageMill?

    Gosh seven years is a long time to put off upgrading software...

    You'll probably want to go Dreamweaver.

    I was a recent Pagemill switcher as well. I think you should try this program, as it's the closest thing to Pagemill I could find without being overly confusing.

    Pagemill u pdate

    I have that one but it is nowhere near as easy as Pagemill was so I am struggling to learn it --- meantime all 9 of my county genealogy websites are in limbo and in danger of being passed to a new webmaster. :(

    If your job is web design, then you really aught to get Dreamweaver. Buy a used copy on eBay, or on Amazon. They usually have much lower prices.

    You can also download a free 30 day trial from Adobe.

    Also look at GoLive, which is the most similar to PageMill - though price may be a problem for you.

    GoLive is going to be discontinued, Adobe decided to stick to Dreamweaver.

    That pretty much means that, unless customers are willing to pay full price for them, as they won't be included in further bundles, they won't be developed. That would seem to be a death sentence.

    As far as PageMill upgrades, even Adobe GoLive version 4.0 didn't accept SiteMill files, as far as I remember, so any product should be reasonable at this point and there are several up through $100.

    DW -> Pagemill Forms MESS

    I know its been years, Im finally making the switch from pagemill to DW. I never liked DW or Go Live because of all the BS and the newer crap like flash and java which is all useless. Why cant they just make something easy for OSX???

    When I open my page in DW it messes up all the forms.

    I sell products on the internet, I made the pages in Pagemill and I paste the Add to button code into the HTML in Pagemill and Pagemill interprets it just fine.


    W Dream weaver I opened a product page and it basically did not even SEE the tables, and put a red line around everything and stacked everything on top of one another.

    I figured out that the red line was actually form code, Its very difficult to edit these pages to what they are supposed to look like.

    Can anyone help me out on making this difficult transition?

    It would be greatly appreciated.

    Thanks
    Herb
