How do I open the website in Coffee Cup? I can see how to open one file/page, but how do I open the whole existing site which is on my computer?

However, if you are looking at one of the responsive site builders, where you don't need to code yourself (Not much, anyway), you will have to start again from scratch.
Mind you, with RSD, RFF or RBB you may be able to import chunks of your existing site, that depends on - well, your existing site. We may be able to help with that.
also - can someone tell me how to set it up so I get emailed when there is a reply to forum threads? I can'f find the option

this post is helpful but could use some bottom line clarification for editors trying out CoffeeCup to edit an existing website.
Our site has thousands of existing web pages, coded in .php format because we use php includes to build page header and footer areas.
If I've got this right, you can NOT edit a pre-existing website page (.php or .htm or .html) using CoffeeCup Site Designer if the site wasn't originally built using that tool - because SD has its own page structure, files, etc.
You CAN edit any pre-existing web page in any of those formats using CoffeeCup HTML Editor.
Regrettably CoffeeCup HTML Editor is not a WYSIWYG editor though it does have a good split screen that can show the page in both code and finished views.
BTW, page content built using a .php include statement does NOT appear in pages viewed using CoffeeCup HTML editor but will appear if you view the same page using Dreamweaver or, of course, online live using any browser.
Have something to add? We’d love to hear it!
