Wouldn't that result in all of your pages being invalid tag soup, though, when delivered to the client? How about people just not use Contribute until its matured enough to support responsible coding and development rather than throw more kinks in this twisted hose we all deal with. But that's just my biased opinion after a dealing with a volunteer group where there was me suggesting a database/web-based content management approach, and this other guy suggesting the "instant web site, keep it simple stupid" Contribute solution... aaaand everybody else ignorant and/or mute on the issue. So, rather than try to convince this guy to not be so paranoid and stubborn, I caved to the Contribute solution and am now in the same boat of trying to figure out how to reconcile responsible coding with the idiosynchrocies of Contribute. It's not a terrible program, and obviously they wouldn't pump so much into it if it didn't work. I just feel like it's yet another example of convenience being placed over things that really matter... like quality. -----Original Message----- From: thelist-bounces at lists.evolt.org [mailto:thelist-bounces at lists.evolt.org]On Behalf Of Bob Haroche Sent: Monday, August 02, 2004 1:22 PM To: thelist at lists.evolt.org Subject: Re: [thelist] MM Contribute issue with editing virtual includes > The problem is that while Contribute sees the left-navigation, it > cannot edit it. I have the exact same issue and no Contribute-based solution yet. If you find one, could you let me know (off-list preferably). One thing I thought of, but haven't tried yet: adding <html> and maybe <head> and <body> tags to the included *.inc file. I know that's not proper but it may be necessary for Contribute to "see" the .inc file in editing mode and (fingers crossed) it may not affect the SSI parsing. Dunno. Again, if you find a workaround, I'd love to know.
