    Default 2 designers sharing a large site with NOF

    I'm just wondering if NOF can be shared with 2 designers. Its a large site of 300+ pages and we want to devide up the pages in order to maintain the site and keep it up to date.
    Any info or suggestions would be appreciated.
    I'm looking at DigitalOcean App Platform. This allows 2 or more designers on two different workstations to update pages of a static website. Has anyone tried this app?

    I would have to question if creating a new site with 300+ pages is a good idea using an application that is no longer supported?

    Thanks Warren. I thought the same about the program being old and no longer supported. I have looked at other web design programs and still prefer the simplicity of NOF. The site is being worked on now, so we'll deal with whatever comes up.

    Yes of course you can.
    The site in total has 300 pages.
    Assign pages 1-150 to designer 1
    Assign pages 151-300 to designer 2

    They ONLY change and update they pages they maintains....like Chinese walls...

    Default 2 designers sharing NOF

    Thanks Richart. This concept could work as a temporary solution. The one designer is the professional graphic artist who is designing the new site and she is also a writer. She will need to update certain pages throughout the site with articles, interviews, pictures etc as they come up. I will maintain the site with adding links to pages and making minor changes. It's an information website we're working on. So its not possible to assign half the website, as in pages 1-150. With the help of zoom, she can instruct me on structural changes etc.

    So if......

    Designer 1 (graphic artist) edits and uploads certain pages in her assigned areas (the Chinese wall being in effect)

    Question 1:
    If I download those certain pages (with jpg's etc) into my recent "local" publish via FTP could I assume I would end up with a current website that would include all the changes of both designers made over the month?

    Question 2:
    Is it possible to make a template from that local publish so I can create a new NOF site with the updates so I could continue updating those pages I didn't have access to over the past month and of course assigning different areas. This would be done monthly.

    From past experiece I've had to delete the entrie website off the server to improve performance of NOF. So it's important to have a current website with all the updates from both designers on my computer.

    Any advice? Will this complicated set of events work or should I start working on plan B?
    Thank you in advance

    >>>> you cannot 'download' from a published website....

    >>>>> you can make a template from an existing site buy exporting to a .zip file, which essentially is a backup and hence template.

    From past experience I've had to delete the entire website off the server to improve performance of NOF. So it's important to have a current website with all the updates from both designers on my computer.
    >>>>> you should not need to do that......check assets .....remove those unused......then use Tools/Re-optimize (create .zip backup first).

    Any advice? Will this complicated set of events work or should I start working on plan B?
    Thank you in advance

    Thanks Richard. We're not there yet. We will have some kind of plan to share this site. Good to know I can't download from a published website.
