Editing Wordpress in RSD?

Can a Wordpress web page be edited in Responsive Site Designer? The pages already exist, but I have been asked to "tweak" them. I want to save the page to my hard-drive and then use RSD to do the editing. Is this possible? Or do I need to use the HTML editor? Or does Wordpress only allow online editing through their system? Or should I just decline the request and continue watching Dr. Who?

Hi Thomas,
No you can't open any pages made with WP in SD.
You should be able to do your tweaking with the HTML Editor.:cool:
I can't hear what I'm looking at.
It's easy to overlook something you're not looking for.

This is a site I built for my work.(RSD)
This is a site I built for use in my job.(HTML Editor)
This is my personal site used for testing and as an easy way to share photos.(RLM imported to RSD)

There are also WordPress plugins that allow you to download the entire website along with databases and then you can import that download into a program called MAMP that will let you install a WordPress site on a virtual server on your computer. Then you can use the plugin to import the site into that virtual install and edit it while being offline. When you are happy with the results you re-export that version and import it to the live site. I've done it many times and it makes working on WordPress sites much easier and with no risk of messing up the live site. The plugin I use is called All in One WordPress migration I think. It's free for small websites but for anything of any size you need to purchase the Pro version. Hope that helps.

Thank you Eric and John for your help. Maybe someday all of the internet will become standardized and these problems will no longer exist. Maybe the aliens will beam me up someday and take me away. Thanks again gentlemen.
