Cannot Edit My Web Pages


(carl tancredi) #1

I can edit and preview my home page with no problem.
However, I cannot edit my other web pages.
When I click edit on my other web pages, I am always returned to my home page in edit mode.
Am I doing something wrong? Is this a rapidweaver bug?
Help!

Carl,

Are you actually selecting the page you want to edit in the left hand (vertical) menu?

If you’re not there, RW may simply take you to the last page you were on.

@mactek – Let’s say, you have a link on your Home Page. You PREVIEW your Home Page and click that link. It takes you to another page. You PREVIEW that other page. Then, you switch back to EDIT mode and that takes you to your Home Page. Is that what happens?

In that case, Mark gave you the right answer. If you want to edit the other page, you have to click on that page’s name in the left PAGES column. Until you do that, you are still on your Home Page, because that’s where you initiated your previewing.

I hope this explanation is not too convoluted…

Mark,
Thank you for your time, help and knowledge.

Mark, at one time my vertical menu was on the left hand side of my Home Page. Presently, my vertical menu is now on the right hand side of my Home Page. How did it get from left to right? I don’t know.

For the record, I am a RW6 newbie.
RW6 is great software. I compare the RW6 learning curve to mountain climbing.It’s hard for me but I will persevere.

It’s been awhile, but I will revisit the free tutorials and articles RW provides.

The solution may be found there. If this doesn’t work I will return to the Community Forum.
If I fix the problem, I will share the solution.

My RW6 version is 6.3.1 My Mac Pro is OS X 10.10.3 Yosemite

As far as I know, the menu of pages we’re talking about is fixed within RapidWeaver (6) on the left.

That’s the menu where you need to select a page; not page links or titles as part of the HTML pages which you’re creating.

Good luck, Carl!

Rovertek,
Than you for your time, assistance and possible solution.

Your explanation is not too convoluted and it makes sense, with the information I provided.

Permit me to give you some additional inforation.

I do not have a link on my Home Page to any other web page. At this time, each page stands alone. On the right hand side of My Home Page, from my vertical menu, I select a web page. I’m now on the selected web page. I click edit. Immediately, I am returned to My Home Page in edit mode.

Carl,

I wonder if you’re confusing the content of your pages - as you build them - with RapidWeaver’s (the software) own way to move between those pages?

Your screen should look like one of those on this page.

That’s actually a resource which will guide you through clicking on the menu built in to RW on the left from page to page.

Once on the page which you want to Edit/Preview, you can switch between Edit and Preview without leaving the current page.

If not, something else may be happening.

@mactek – At this point, I am beginning to suspect that I don’t quite understand what you are trying to explain.

You should select your page in the left vertical PAGES menu by clicking on the page’s name. Now, you are on the page you want to edit. There is nothing on the right side of the vertical menu that you can use to select a specific page for editing. There are only stacks that you can, indeed, edit.

Check that tutorial that Mark gave you the link for. The screenshots there are pretty self-explanatory. If that does not help, come back and upload your own screenshot from your project, OK?

Hi Mark,

Problem Solved.

I am a MOE-RON.

I watched the whistle-stop tour of Getting Started Video tutorial for RW6.

The solution was quick, easy and brain-dead simple. I selected the Pages icon.

The tutorial was showing and selecting the wrench icon for Settings.

After Settings, the tutorial spoke about Pages and its icon. Eureka!

I clicked the Pages icon. Like magic .The sidebar appeared.

I saw my various web pages on the left hand side.

I could edit and preview all of them.

I do sincerely apologize for wasting your time on this simple problem.

Respectfully yours,

Carl

No worries. We all had to start at some point and it was not always easy and clear path. We all still learn. The best way to learn is on your own mistakes, as they say… Good luck!

Well done, Carl. 'M**o* doesn’t come in to it. You must feel pretty proud; I would be :slight_smile: .
