Make sure that you select all the files and folders so that you preserve the directory structure of your website.
Otherwise, if you change things around or only selectively download files, you may find that you have a lot of broken links and broken images when you edit and publish your website in the new editor.
If there is no such folder when you log in, and you see files like "index.html" instead, it is possible that you are already in your web directory.
From the dialog box that appears, navigate to the place where you saved your website's files earlier.
Choose the file you wish to edit and click the "Open" button. Note: Nvu and Kompo Zer have bugs in the way they handle sites using CSS (which is a technology used by webmasters and web editors to specify what a website is to look like).
Since you're already changing editors at this time, you might as well do all the redesigning and relearning at this stage, to save yourself time in the future.
The first thing you will need to do is to download a copy of your entire webite onto a folder on your own hard disk.
This does not mean that you cannot salvage your content.
Your content — your own words, photos and the pictures you drew yourself — are your own property, which you can use wherever you like.
When you get to the "Editing Files, Part 3" part of the wizard, you will be asked "Where on your computer do you want to store your files? Instead, click the folder icon to the right of the box, and look for the folder where you downloaded your website's files, and select that instead.
Apart from this step, the rest are the same as those described in the Dreamweaver tutorial. To edit an existing site with either Nvu or Kompo Zer, just start the editor, and click the "File" menu and the "Open" item on the menu that drops down.
You won't need to do that - in fact, what you need to do is the opposite.
