I started with CoffeeCup around 1999? Somewhere in there.
About 5 years ago or so, I stopped doing website design.
I'm back!
Now it's all new and updated in so many great ways. But, my habit formed go-to things are different.
I found the ftp area but what I'm needing to do is work on someone else's existing website. I need to download before I can upload or even create folders since I need to see the code first to make sure my folders match.
Where is the main set up area so I can download the existing code and template items?

It's easy to overlook something you're not looking for.

Thanks, Eric, but I already re-downloaded the actual CoffeeCup HTML Editor. What I need to know is where I set up the new FTP information in there so I can download the existing website that I need to work on for someone else? Otherwise I don't have any of the files to open a new page, etc. to get started.

Welcome back! Have a read through this:
http://www.coffeecup.com/help/articles/ … cts-setup/
Projects are a great way to keep everything together and organized. Once you've set up a Project and FTP** connection, you can download live pages to edit them (Open from Web option). You could also view the site in your browser to copy the page code and paste it into a new page in the Editor.

I like the second way better because the old page remains intact while you create its new replacement, and if anything gets messed up, it's not live online. :o

The welcome screen has set-up, theme and template options. You can also get to them from the File menu.

Thank you, Eric. I did find what I needed nestled on that page.

Thank you, Paintbrush. I'll go check out that page. I'm intrigued by the downloading of pages like that but I needed to also download all the elements of the page to work on it.

Thank you for this post

It is a very long time since I visited here and the information provided above will be very helpful.

The website (medset.ca) created years ago with HTML-EDITOR Is still functional but needs updates until I can arrange a total rewrite.

The updates I will take care of (very rusty here) the rewrite will be done by someone else.

Yes I will read the links above.

Any other suggestions?

Grab a responsive theme for the html editor or grab yourself a copy of RSD and use that to rebuild the site.
