Tip for GoLive>Dreamweaver Migrations

As a follow-up to my recent post about new tools to help you migrated from GoLive to Dreamweaver (if you want to) I wanted to offer an extra tip that will hopefully help some of you. I recently learned that the GL2DW extension assumes (for better or worse) that your GoLive site is in good working order and using the new site folder organization scheme that’s been in use for the last few versions.

If that’s not the case, the GL2DW extension can hiccup in the conversion process. To tidy things up before running the extension, open your site in GoLive and choose Site>Convert Site to New Structure. If the menu command is grayed out you’re in the clear. If it’s available, you should let ‘er rip.
