Updating CSS style sheets in a Contribute site
Macromedia Contribute users cant make changes to a CSS style sheet. To change a style sheet for a Contribute site, use Dreamweaver.
The following are important factors to keep in mind when updating style sheets for a Contribute site:
- If you make changes to a style sheet while a Contribute user is editing a page that uses that style sheet, the user wont see the changes to the style sheet until they publish the page.
- If you delete a style from a style sheet, the style name is not deleted from pages that use that style sheet, but since the style no longer exists, it isnt displayed the way the Contribute user may expect. Thus, if a user tells you that nothing happens when they apply a particular style, the problem may be that the style has been deleted from the style sheet.
To edit a CSS style sheet in a Contribute site:
- Edit the style sheet using the Dreamweaver style-sheet-editing tools. For more information, see Using Cascading Style Sheets to format text.
- Tell all of the Contribute users who are working on the site to publish pages that use that style sheet, then re-edit those pages to view the new style sheet.
